We stayed here for 2 nights, I think because we had looked at SO many hotels rooms (we were travelling around NS) we didn't give this one as much consideration as we should have. I also think that when we booked the room the better, bigger rooms had been booked. Our room was very small & very warm (yes there... More

Thank you for taking the time to review. I believe it is actually an asset of ours that we do have different sized rooms so that we can off a variety of affordability from $99, which I believe was your room to $225 for the honeymoon suite. That way no matter what your price point is, everyone can enjoy the... More

The Boscawen is an impeccably kept historic inn, made finer by the owners' splendid attention to detail. It spanned from the printed recommendations note in the room to the delicious breakfast to the lavender by your bedside table. We stayed 2 nights - and the inn was perfectly situated for our needs. It was a stone's throw from all the... More

What a spectacular building! Just beautiful. So many antiques and decorations. Amazingly friendly hosts, great location and delicious hot breakfast. View of the water from the decks is amazing too. Would definitely recommend and will stay again!

We were warmly welcomed to the Boscawen Inn. I was feeling a bit under the weather with a fever upon arrival, but Tina directed us to the local pharmacy for some aspirin and immediately brought us an ice bucket, ice, and beverages. We had room #203, which was very spacious and had a king bed, large sitting area w/coffee maker,... More

This historic inn is situated on the hill over looking the Lunenburg harbour. Our room and the common areas were furnished with antiques and nicely decorated. There was a beautiful outdoor deck to enjoy, with spectacular views and coffee and tea available. Breakfast includes a different hot dish each day as well as fruit, yogurt, bakery items, cereal, and coffee... More

We loved this place - the guesthouse and its owners are charming. We received a very warm welcome from Jonathan and Judy. When we mentioned that we could hear the main aircon unit against the bedroom's outside wall, Judy happily showed us two alternative rooms. The "happy hour" on the deck - with views of the harbour and folk musicians... More

It was so lovely to have you join us - even if it was just for one night. Thank you so much for letting us know how we could help you. So often people won't say anything until they get home and write that they didn't like their room - if we can do anything to make your stay more... More

We were looking for a place to stay in Lunenburg and it was getting late. We stopped a couple places but I just didn't feel it was what I wanted. Suddenly I saw the Lunenburg Inn and it had that lovely homey feel. Every corner has been addressed with books antiques and maintenance and clealiness is on a very high... More

This is an old fashioned hotel, and we had a smallish room. There was not really enough room to unpack properly. There is no lift, and it was difficult for some of the older guests to get suitcases upstairs. The first day we couldn't get hot water in the shower or bath, and had to report it. It did improve...

Boscawen I, Owner at Boscawen Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to write. I do think it is good that people realize that the Boscawen was built in 1888 as a main residence for a very special daughter. So this explains that all of our rooms are of different sizes and quirks. We do price accordingly and I believe if I recall correctly you were... More

We spent two nights here in a wonderfully light and airy room (203) which has huge views across the town and harbour. It's a very spacious room with a huge and comfortable bed, a sitting area and a lovely en-suite which includes a Victorian roll-top bath. Antique furniture in the room completes the romantic nod to an elegant bygone age.... More

We once again got the last room. It was small, 2 twin beds, but clean and comfortable. I did see the honeymoon suite, beautiful! Great location. It is right across from the park where there are 2 pm concerts on Sunday's. We loved the porch overlooking the city and bay. Drinks served until 8 pm. Breakfast was included and very... More
