Checked into our room & opened our fridge and found half eaten gone bad food, half full beer bottles. Very disgusting and not right during a pandemic, little to no compassion and no compensation. I was on there property for 30 minutes and this should have them shut down considering i found this in one room and was only there a limited time.

I had a great room - quite and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the recreation area was under renovation so access to these facilities were in the Hotel Halifax. If you wanted to use them, it would be a bit of a walk. Nevertheless, I would stay at the Barrington again without hesitation.
