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.

We booked our reservation last minute and were not sure what to expect. Front Desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, within a walk-in distance to all the attractions and good restaurants. Room was spacious and well equipped with fridge, coffee maker, teas etc. Next day we were again pleasantly surprised with the great breakfast (in... More

We stayed in a double room in the Concordia building. The room was clean, with a great view of the harbour, but pretty basic. We were on the third floor (no elevator) and were advised that the phone in our room didn't work, so that if we needed anything we'd have to go across the street to talk to reception.... More

The Smugglers Cove Inn is situated directly in the historic old town of Lunenburg. There are lovely houses around the hotel and the main attractions are just a footstep away from the hotel. The staff and check-in is totally friendly and was really nice. Everything was fast and we felt quite good. The rooms are a little bit small and... More

Lunenberg is spectacularly beautiful. The Smugglers Inn is located near the sea in the middle of town. The restaurant connected to the hotel has the best breakfast in town. The hotel itself was disappointing. We often had no hot water and the room, though spacious, was outdated and uncomfortable. There is limited parking and the staff was not very friendly.... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

We were in a second floor room that was very large, with a full kitchen and a deck. It wasn't one of the front rooms, so there wasn't any view (except by going outside onto the deck), and from the floor plan it appears to be larger than most of the rooms. The furniture was just ok, but the bed... More

The room was $200 for a night it was a king bed but way too soft The view was not much of one. There is no desk person there at night, they only provide you with a telephone number to call. The shower in the morning was cold. Not impressed at all!!!!

Thank you very much for your review. We are so sorry for your restless night. Our guests frequently compliment us on our high end mattresses. Preference of soft/firm is very individualized. We have recently upgraded our hot water heating system. Hot water is never longer than a 10 minute wait when the Inn is at full capacity. As most Inns... More

The Inn is clean and the service is nice. You need to find metered parking and feed the meter every two hours though, which is a hassle. The interior is a bit worn and they don't provide the extras you might like to see like complimentary breakfast or coffee in the lobby. The location, however, is great!

YOURCOICE, Owner at Smugglers Cove Inn, responded to this review

Thank you very much for your comment. Unfortunately, the parking situation in Lunenburg, which is a World UNESCO site has no public parking in town, and therefore, it is not what we can influence. We do not advertise with free coffee in the lobby but we provide free coffee in the room. We also provide a $3.00 off coupon per... More
