This B and B is great, the staff were super friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the auditors room overlooking the basin for one night. Four post bed, private bathroom and a nook with a little couch. The breakfast was fantastic and as Kasia said "no one leaves her table hungry" so asking for seconds was encouraged. The only negatives I can say are the driveway is a bit difficult to get up and there isn't much to see or eat within walking distance. However with a car, the activities and ammenities in Halifax and Bedford are both quick and easy drives.

Great stay with children

This was a really friendly and helpful B&B; for our stay with 2 pre-schoolers - very much home away from home. The owners are very flexible and forthcoming, and made our stay a lot of fun.

Wonderful historical B

We loved the 2 nights we spent at ascendence. It's a wonderful renovated 19th century home with lovely decor and warm hosts. Danny and Kasia were very eager to help us with room amenities and places to visit in Halifax. Loved the breakfast crepes and the breakfast scramble (minus the green peppers next time please). Thanks for the stay, wish we would have had more time to just sit and relax on the porch. It's a great value compared to other B&Bs; in Halifax!
A fun Stay!

My sister and I stayed at the ascendence and we really had a great time! Kasia and Danny are very friendly and hospitable. We would definitely recommend staying here as they make awesome breakfast. The crepes were very filling!
The house is located on a quiet street so it was a good get away, and theres a direct bus to downtown. I would recommend staying here. Read more

Glad your enjoyed your breakfast and your stay in halifax we always do our best to ensure our guest have the best possible time in the travel to Halifax
Not too happy
Left on 08/04/2010 for a stay in August 2010 | Greg
Sorry, but while the proprieters are helpful and friendly, the inn is an an unattractive neighborhood, gives no view of the bay, and has no appealing place to sit and relax. It is way overpriced--should be in the 50-75 dollar range. Read more
I am a mother of three girls, aged 2 to 6, who was in desperate need of a break... So I came upon ascendence... I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
When I first arrived, I was greeted very warmly by Danny and Kasia. My bags were taken to my room and I was shown around. The house is beautiful!! My room was very nicely decorated and inviting. Two very important things to me when I am staying somewhere is a comfortable bed and quiet, I was not disappointed. The breakfast every morning was fantastic and one morning Kasia even treated us to a Polish dish she said her father use to make... You don't get special touches like that staying in big hotels.
I look forward to my next stay!
Needs some tweaking

Thought I'd send a few constructive tips to help Katherine and her partner develop their B&B; business to its full potential.
My first impression was the stairway going up to the room...it needed a vacuum. Make the first impression the best.
The mattress on the pull-out bed is questionable, maybe look to replacing that down the road.
Also, advise guests who is also sharing the rooms and bathrooms so they are courteous of others schedules. We enjoyed a great evening of wine and hoped we hadn't disturbed anyone.
We appreciated a great breakfast and coffee in the morning with helpful tips for exploring Halifax. When asking guests about breakfast choices, you were hopeful we would all make the same selection to make prep easier (we understand this) but it's doubtful you'd get all your guests to have the same preference. Make it easier by rounding out with muffins and scones, hard boiled eggs, bagels and fruit. Easy filling breakfast items that most people are happy with.
It was well located, well priced and the welcome was warm. Good luck!

Great Place to Stay

I don’t usually stay at a bed an breakfast but having recently done so in Renfrew Ontario, and it being a great stay I thought that on my trip to Halifax I would try another bed and breakfast and I was not disappointed with my decision.
The place is lovely, I think the new owners added some great touches, and most importantly the place is VERY clean. The service was great as well. We got some great tips on places to visit, and would defiantly come back, and have recommended the place to friends traveling east in the fall.
Not downtown and we liked that for a b&b; in Halifax

Located over the beautiful Bedford Basin in Halifax, we had a great stay at this bed and breakfast and recommend it to anybody, Katherine and Danny were wonderful hosts and we would recommend this accommodation to tourists in Halifax Nova Scotia.
This is the best bed and breakfast I stayed at in Halifax.

The ascendence Harbourside Mansion bed & breakfast has large room accommodations in Halifax, a huge deck to barbeque supper if you don't wanna head out to the busy restaurants in peak season. As far as b&b; prices go in Halifax this is consider budget accommodations as I researched the prices before I stayed in Nova Scotia. Kasia made some great crepes and coffee in the morning. this b&b; isn't right downtown so it's nice and quiet and the bed was really comfortable and I had free wireless internet which I found very accommodating. Highly recommend the ascendence harbourside mansion rather than a hotel or motel in Halifax Nova Scotia. I hear they are pet friendly and they also offered great tours and tour spots to visit in Halifax. :)
