This is the only motel I have stayed at in the Atlantic provinces that I have ever wanted to recommend. Not that other places are bad, per say, but they are pricey for a standard generic boring night(s) stay. Not the Topmast. Wow! Wow! and Wow. Atop a hill that looks over the Atlantic Ocean. Full view of the harbour... More

This motel isn't in the heart of Lunenburg, but it looks out onto it, which is better. It's very close by, too -- a drive of just five minutes or so. We enjoyed our stay -- the room was simple, clean, and had a nice deck with water views and a view of downtown Lunenburg.

I was at the Topmast for 2 nights in two separate rooms as I had only planned on staying one night but liked it so well I asked to stay 2. I loved the view. The people were super friendly and helpful, room was very clean and the little extras were appreciated. On older motel but very comfortable.

This was a disappointing stay for us. It does have a nice view and was clean but way too small. There was no AC and the day was humid. The patio screen was torn on the bottom as was the screen on the front door so not possible to leave open for fresh air. The soap provided for the sink... More

Just back from 2 months in Lunenburg. The majority of the time we stayed at the Topmast. We were extremely well looked after by Donna and Darleen, they really helped make our stay there a pleasure. We hope we get to return again one day and the Topmast will be our first choice.

The staff was nice, and the room was clean. You just can't change the fact that this is an old style motel with paper thin walls, a tiny room with a tiny bathroom, sloping floors, etc. We didn't enjoy being in such close proximity to our neighbours and in such close quarters, you are at their mercy with noise at...

Excellent value and a beautiful view. The facilities are a bit dated but quite standard for a motel. Suggest getting better curtains to block out the lights that on the patio deck just outside the room that stay on all night.

We loved this place and kind of found it by accident. It has an amazing view of Lunenburg and a lovely deck to sit out in the evening. We had a kitchenette, living room, bedroom and bath and it was spacious and immaculate! The staff were very helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to return, very quiet and just an ideal location.... More

On August 21 past, my wife booked an overnight stay at the TopMast through booking.com. About an hour after receiving our booking confirmation, I received another e-mail stating our reservation was suddenly gone because the previous guest "decided to stay another night". I have traveled extensively all over the world; Europe, Australia, and North America. NEVER in my adult life... More

We booked throuh Booking.com and the room was describe as having a deck overlooking the harbor. In fact this room (#16) is located on the other side of the motel so forget about the see. The owner told us that the false description was a mistake by Booking.com. But no apologies from their part. Please check the number of your... More
