We booked a queen room online and we expected a room with a view as the website didn't say otherwise. However when we arrived (peak season July 2014) and were given our keys we were more than disappointed at our room. It did indeed have a queen bed but the room was very small, one window that faced a building,... More

Thank you very much for your review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our most concern is keeping our customers happy. I did checked our website again and the queen size bedrooms do not indicate that they have water view. Our queen/double bedroom has water view. This might be the reason for some misunderstandings.

Though the inn room itself was nicely appointed, my husband and I did not have a waterfront view as the website led us to believe we would. When I got on the Rum Runner Inn website in October of 2013, what I saw led me to believe that the rooms overlooked the water. However, there was no panoramic view for... More

Thank you very much for your comment. We are very sorry that your stay with us was not as you expected. Our website indicates very clearly that we have rooms with panoramic water view and rooms without water view. This is also reflecting in the price. The next time, visiting Lunenburg, we would be very happy to show you our... More

Had an overnight stay here in late July 2014. It was a great location and close to all downtown amenities. Our room had a private balcony and overlooked the harbour. Bed and pillows were very comfy. The ladies on the front desk were very friendly and welcoming. Parking in Lunenburg is an issue so we had to park a fair... More

Stayed one night, July 29th. Lovely room (room # 7), very clean, gorgeous view of the harbour. We were absolutely thrilled to wake in the early hour and head out to our balcony to see the Bluenose coming to dock right across the road from the hotel!!!! very unexpected and welcomed surprise. Hotel was lovely and we were greeted by... More

My family (4 of us) stayed here in July, 2014 for a night. We had a room with two double beds that didn't overlook the harbour (booked kind of late) but it was perfect for us as it was clean, roomy, and just steps away from everything else in town. My son says the beds were very comfy. We will... More

We (family of 4) stayed at the Rum Runner on July 11th. The room was super clean and spacious with a fantastic view overlooking the Lunenburg harbor. The location was great, just steps from excellent dining, shopping and the harbor. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We highly recommend and we would definitely stay at the Rum Runner again!

My mother in law and I stayed at this inn for a girls night in my favourite town in Nova Scotia. We stayed in room 6 which had access to the large patio over looking the water. The room was fabulous, and we have a wonderful time looking at the ocean while enjoying a glass or two of wine. The... More

A great place to escape for a night. Perfect location and close to everything. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the price was right. I would gladly rebook a night at the Rum Runner Inn.
