Centrally located in Lunenburg. Room very clean, a few with good view (not mine). Accepted pets. Host Eva very helpful. Easy to walk everywhere. Downside to hotel is the parking. Need to park on street, but need to move the car in the morning. Was lucky enough to find parking right outside the door.

I stayed here just for the 1 night, but I wish I'd planned to stay here longer. The room was clean, staff were very pleasant and helpful, and the location is great. For the price, you just can't go wrong!!!

We stayed in room 1. When we arrived, I had planned to go for a walk but instead fell asleep as the bed was so comfortable! Spacious room, harbor view from the side window, quiet (we could barely tell anyone else was staying there), smooth check in and out. Central so we were mere steps from historic sites, horse carriage... More

We spent our last 2 nights in Nova Scotia at the Rum Runner in Lunenburg on Sept 17 & 18 and it was one of the highlights of our trip. A very clean & comfortable king room with a fantastic view of the harbour. The location can't be beat and the service was great. Had a fabulous dinner in their... More

We booked our trip on a budget, and chose the least expensive rooms at the rum runner and we're pleasantly surprised. Very clean, quiet, comfortable beds, they also provided a playpen for our daughter to sleep in. Great location, right on the main strip. The upgraded rooms had balconies overlooking the water, the looked beautiful!

Arrived late in the day Friday, September 5. Rooms were getting scarce. But the Rum Runner Inn had a great room with a view of Lunenburg Habour. Loved it. It was quiet, with a comfortable bed and my own verandah. I would stay again.

We had had a very tough day, with a bad experience at a b and b that caused us to walk out and drive to Lunenburg without a reservation, so we were cranky, but everything changed when we discovered this delightful hotel. We were late coming into town, so there was no one at checkin, but my wife chatted with... More

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.
