Chris and Dan have gone above and beyond to make sure that our stay was a good one. They are exceptional hosts and were very accommodating to my special needs diet (gluten and dairy free) for breakfast. The Topsail Suite was very comfortable with air conditioning (and fans) and was also nicely decorated. I highly recommend the Addington Arms for... More

We cannot say enough about the friendliness and assistance of Chris and her husband. The breakfast and accommodation was also excellent. Room was air conditioned and quiet, with a large bath. We will return.

We have stayed elsewhere in Lunenburg and were quite content. This year, we decided to try something new as we wanted closer proximity to the town center. Very happy we did. I didn't realise the woman running around (it had been a crazy day) was the owner! In a way it was to both our benefits as I was more... More

We had the pleasure of spending four nights in the Topsail suite at the Addington Arms. We were greeted so warmly by Chris on our arrival and we felt like family as were made to feel right at home. Dan should be cloned so I can take him home to make breakfast for me. They were flavourful, filling and thoroughly... More

We enjoyed 3 nights here at the beginning of our 3 weeks touring Nova Scotia. Lunenburg is a lovely town - very steep streets and some beautiful historic buildings .The Addington is one of those buildings- hence steep steps to the front door and several stairs to the rooms! However it's worth the climb!! The Heritage Suite was beautiful -... More

What a lovely B&B. Chris & Dan are outstanding hosts who deliver a warm welcome and a great breakfast. The view from the Flying Jib room is breath taking. Lunenburg is a brilliant place to explore, you must do the walking tour and eat at the Old Fish Factory.

My husband and I stayed at Addington Arms last summer, based on reviews from Trip Advisor and we were NOT disappointed! We enjoyed it so much we returned this spring and are hoping to visit again this summer! The owners are wonderful, you have privacy while staying there and it does not feel as though you are staying at a... More

My husband and I spent our 15th wedding anniversary here and loved it. With a great welcome from our hostess to a fantastic room, breakfast and location. We highly recommend this b&b. We parked our vehicle at the location and was able to spend the day walking the lovely town of Lunenburg. With plenty of shops, restaurants and cafés. We... More

My wife and I were traveling through Lunenburg and decided to stay at a B&B last minute. We stumbled upon Addington Arms and had an overall great experience. The room was amazing, the hosts were friendly and the breakfast was delicious. It went above and beyond our expectations and we would recommend it to anyone.

Many have advised on the comfort, beauty, hospitality and food shared at the Addington. I am happy to add my voice to the chorus. Came to it by happenstance in early February, caught Chris by surprise and they treated us like long awaited royalty. Thank you both. It beautiful and a pleasure.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Addington Arms B&B sits atop 2 fine art galleries and atop the six square block historic district of this UNESCO world heritage site, affording ocean views from all of our suites and room. Shopping, dining and exploring are all just steps outside your front door. We are not your typical B&B but more akin to a boutique hotel, with stocked mini fridges, TV's and en-suite steam-rooms with aroma therapy or an air-jet tub in very spacious surroundings. On-site parking is available as street parking is problematic in the summer months. Our breakfasts are as memorable as the town of Lunenburg itself. ... more   less
