“Wonderful people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

We just wanted to say a special thank you for sending us back our hat that we left behind!! The room was exceptionally clean, and the view was beautiful. We will definitely stay here again.
Thanks so much, Cliff and Mandy

We have stayed at the Top Mast for over 20 years and absolutely love it. You can not beat sitting on the deck at sunset and watching the colors of Lunenburg change. The buildings are so colorful, red, blue, purple and orange. You can watch sail boats and fishing boats come and go as well as the resident osprey. The rooms are clean and comfortable and some have kitchenettes so you can eat on your deck. The best , which I have saved to last, is Mary. She runs the office and make you feel so welcomed . She and Gary even made a little ramp to help my Dad, who uses a walker, get up the small step into the room. I would say that it is because of her kindness and warm friendly manner, we have come back year after year. It also helps that the view is "to die for"

Well i'll start by saying we stayed at this motel last Aug/2012 and again Aug/2013...we are a group of 6 women who just want to get away for the weekend...the motel is just perfect ...we cooked our own meals in the kitchen and enjoyed the beautiful view of Lunenburg...Mary always goes above and beyond to make our stay perfect, either by giving us directions, extra supplies etc...she is a true gem...Thanks again Mary we will see you next year...save our room for the third weekend in August!!! From your Digby friends.

Room Tip: Room # 11 has a great big deck perfect for views and relaxation.

The reason we picked this motel was because of the view, and we weren't disappointed. The rooms are small but clean and efficient. The staff was very friendly and the muffins in the morning were delicious. Would recommend.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

No question the view of Lunenburg is great from this location but I am sure we could have some other good photo ops. Stayed one night and if I had booked for two nights we would have moved.
The rooms are dated, simple but very clean. No A/C in our room. You can get a muffin and coffee on the morning but can just as easily go down the road for breakfast.
We are normally B&B people and have recently stayed in some outstanding places in NS and PEI at a significantly lower cost when you have to factor in breakfast costs re the Topmast. We think for what we got it is overpriced but if people are willing to pay that then it works for them

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

The other reviewers are right - the view of Lunenburg is spectacular from the terraces attached to each room, the guest rooms are small and they are as clean as can be...but there is no air conditioning and on a hot day the ceiling fan just doesn't do it if there is no breeze coming through the windows. We stayed the one night. I talked with Mary when making the reservation but another woman checked us in...she too was very nice and gave me some brochures on sights to see in the area. I checked out with Mary in the morning and she was lovely, but nothing was ever said about muffins....we went down the road and grabbed a quick breakfast at Tim Horton's.

The topmast Motel has the most fabulous view of Lunenburg. Rooms are very nice and clean and comfortable. Staff is wonderful. Mary makes you feel like family and her Blueberry muffins are amazing. To bad it rained all weekend.
