We had a great stay at Smugglers Cove! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The room was adorable, bright, clean and cozy. Great location to walk around the whole town. I read through some of the other reviews and people are being VERY nitpicky if they think it was too small, old, or not a good enough view. We stayed... More

We found the room pictures were accurate but old. Room was clean but very small. Stingy on coffee for the room, even when we asked for more decaf we got one packet. You do get a breakfast discount coupon if you eat in their restaurant. Bathroom is tiny as well. We did get a small balcony altho it was not... More

Thank you very much for your comment. It is really sad that you did not enjoy your stay in our hotel. Especially since we updated this particular room just a few weeks ago. New duvets, new floor, fresh paint etc. It is really unfortunate. I can understand your frustration in regards of traveling with a truck in a small little... More

We stayed for our anniversary in October. Check in was fast and friendly, great location, walking distance to restaurants and waterfront. The elevator and hallways kindda smelled of oil or something, not pleasant BUT our room smelled fine and was nice and clean. We had a King room with balcony which was nice but I thought we'd have a better... More

The Hotel is conveniently located right on the main strip in Lunenberg. Very convenient walk to several restaurants and the marina where the Bluenose II is docked. We had a water view not a waterfront view but it was very nice and we totally enjoyed this place. We had the most comfortable bed. There are discount vouchers available for breakfast... More

The Hotel is conveniently located right on the main strip in Lunenberg. Very convenient walk to several restaurants and the marina where the Bluenose II is docked. There is no parking available at the hotel so we had to park behind the hotel on another street. Metered parking but free after 5 and on weekends. The room was a good... More

This is a comfortable and well run hotel. Our room was at the side and had a small balcony. The hotel is in the centre of this very small town and just a few yards away from the waterfront. Parking is on the street but charges can be avoided by arriving after 17.00 and leaving before 10.00. Breakfast is not... More

Although we did not have a waterfront view we were more than happy with our room and the facilities it provided. We enjoy having a fridge and coffee making facilities as we carry lunch provisions with us and we enjoy being able to have a coffee whenever we feel like it. The hotel is centrally located just off the waterfront.... More

Our room was fairly spacious, clean, and comfortable. The next door neighbors were a bit noisy on the first night, but they immediately quieted down when we spoke to them. Apart from that, we were generally pleased with our stay. (However, the breakfast service in the restaurant within the building is fairly slow and doesn't even open until 8:00 am.... More

We stayed in a Queen Waterview room while in town for a wedding. The amenities were basic, the room was small, but clean. The location downtown was fabulous, and the front desk staff was pleasant. The restaurant had a great breakfast menu.
