We spent one night here on a tour of NS. The location was excellent. We had the queen room which we knew didn't have a view. We wanted the location more than the view and it was excellent value. The room was very clean and service very friendly. The shower curtain smelled a bit musty but that is easy to... More

Stayed one night and had no issues. It is right in the middle of Historic Lunenburg so no more than a 5 min walk to any place of interest of restaurant. Room was fine and we had no complaints. Overall I would stay here again.

Came in late and they left the key for us. Coupons were in the envelope with the key. Very nice little room. Very welcoming yellow colours in the halls and rooms. Nice washrooms as well. Right in downtown Lunenburg so it was weary to just leave out money in the meter and start walking around.

My husband & I stayed 2 nights at the Rum Runner Inn at the end of a 2 wk vacation to the East Coast. It was a perfect ending to our trip. After leaving Halifax which we loved 1 day earlier because we wanted to have time to experience Peggy's Cove, see Chelsey, Mahone Bay and beautiful Lunenburg before heading... More

We had let the Rum Runner know we would be arriving late (touring and wanting to see all that we could in a short week). When we arrived at 10:30pm, there was a note for us with the key. How very convenient. We found the room (#1) very clean and comfortable. In the morning, we spoke with the hostess and... More

We stayed one night at the Rum Runner Inn (wanted three but had to settle for two nights at the Dockside). The Dockside was just ok for the first two nights, but the Rum Runner was excellent. We had an ocean view king room that had an enclosed (glass) balcony.The view was awesome and the room was very clean, brightly... More

We didn't expect much from this little inn, but were pleasantly surprised with the very spacious room-number 4. The service was great, as they were accommodating with all of our requests. The location was fantastic, beds Very comfortable, and surprisingly quiet!

An excellent place to stay in Lunenburg. Well located, excellent staff, helpful and very courteous. A great room for the price. Just what I wanted. Was looking for an economical place with a nice atmosphere and handy to everything. Definitely recommend Rum Runner Inn. The only minus might be that they do NOT serve breakfast at the Inn (just lunch... More

We had a lovely time during our stay in Lunenberg and it was due to the service and delightful accommodations at the Rum Runner Inn. The bed was very plush and comfortable and the screened in balcony facing the water was nice. We will definitely stay here again if we're fortunate to visit the area in the future.
