Great spot to get away to. Highly recommend it. Lunenburg is a wonderful charming postcard place to visit, and this hotel fits right in.Of course not much happening in the winter but its still a nice place to go for a getaway.

Eva is kind and understanding. She makes you feel like a part of her family. It is centrally located near the downtown core on King Street. You can walk almost everywhere from this location. I frequently stay here because both the service and value are excellent. Keep up the great job

Room, staff, and location downtown next to everything was exactly what we wanted, you can walk to most services, shops and restaurants from the inn. Heat pump / AC worked great, king bed was very comfortable and (Skuttlebutt)restaurant next door for breakfast was excellent-- also Inn provied $3.00 discount for breakfast each day we were there.

Smugglers Inn is a small hotel, with very comfortable rooms, and a very nice staff. The Inn is central to everything in Lunenberg (but then what isn't). There is a small restaurant next door that serves a very nice breakfast. In a word, Sugglers Inn is "Sweet". We enjoyed our stay and recommend it for anyone visiting the wonderful town... More

This inn is a nice place to stay when in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. The outside of the building may not seem too attractive but the rooms are very clean and well appointed. The check-in person was polite and helpful in suggesting places to visit in town. A restaurant is also located in the building.

The room was nice, actually rather good, modern and clean. But there was zero privacy. Anyone walking by we could hear (and they could here us)!!!!! For that reason alone I would not return. The location was good in the midst of this little town.

Staff was very friendly, and accommodated us for free parking in the area. Rooms were spacious and clean. We had nice balconies both nights to sit out on. They gave us coupons for bfast next door, which was absolutely delicious. Definitely recommend this hotel if traveling in the area. Was a beautiful area.

We weren't sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. The young gentleman at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. The room was a fair size and very clean. Lovely atmosphere in the hotel. There was a sitting room in the foyer outside the section where our room was.
