Clean, spectacular view of the harbour and very friendly staff. Great location around shopping and walking the board walk. We lucked out with seeing the Bluenose II which was perfect with our room view. The bed mattress was the only negative, felt like sleeping on the floor. The owner was very welcoming and interacting with the guests. Unfortunately we never... More

We have been to Lunenburg area many times but had only stayed overnight once before. We wanted to be right on the water this time and The Rum Runner definitely filled the bill. There are only about 15 rooms available and maybe 6 with a water view. We had one. It has a balcony overlooking the harbour. It was enclosed... More

The Rum Runner Inn in Lunenburg was very comfortable, clean and had a great bed. We chose it for its atmosphere and were not disappointed. You enter this place on the street above water street, the only disadvantage to us was we did not have a view of the water otherwise it was a neat place to stay

Spent 2 days visiting the lovely seaport city of lundenburg and our stay at the rum runner inn was a good choice. We had a room with open private verandah over looking the dock. We could see the blue nose 2 from our room. The night we arrived it rained all night,but we ran across the street to the museum... More

Comfortable room facilities and great location, terrific welcome at check in, friendly & helpful staff. Deserves it's status of 1 of 6 in town! Would recommend! Ask for room 7, it has a great corner aspect and glazed balcony! Room had shower rather than full bath, but that's being picky !

Centrally located on the Lunenburg waterfront and adjacent to the Fisheries Museum, the Rum Runner Inn was a nice choice for our 1 night stay. The room was modern and comfortable and the staff friendly. The restaurant downstairs was a good place to chow down. The Inn has no parking although street parking was available. WIFI was very strong but... More

The water-facing rooms are wonderful. The people who run the Inn are helpful and friendly. The location is great and Lunenburg is definitely worth the visit. There are great seafood restaurants nearby. You can walk to everything and the place is UNESCO Heritage Site cute.

Our second visit to this amazing spot. Great view of the harbor. Easy to walk anywhere in the olde town. The host/owner is always very helpful. Were there before peak season so the restaurant wasn't open, but there is lots of options nearby. Will definitely come back.

Nice inn friendly staff and very helpful about restaurants since it was pre pre season and theirs was not up and running yet...would like to visit again . If a view is important to you ask for the balcony rooms a little more expensive and the view is the only difference...we aren't in our rooms much so that was not... More

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.
