We stayed here for 2 nights. We were impressed at the size of the room. We had a nice view of sme of the waterfront and the street- and it was quiet. The room was clean and the Internet as fast. We were instructed to park on the street which was free and not a problem in June, but the... More

The location of this inn is terrific - one flat short block to the water front and everything within easy walking distance. We had a queen view room - we did have a view though it was rather limited and the window was pretty small. Decor is a little tired but didn't consider that to be an issue. The real... More

Nice room, not fancy but clean and well appointed. Hotel is in a great location to explore Lunenburg and visit the shops and restaurants. Check in was efficient, I was lucky to find a parking spot right out front after the meters didn't need to be fed. The only negative was a very noisy air conditioning unit.

If you are spending a night in Lunenburg, this is a very good choice. The room was clean and comfortable, and there was a fridge. The only thing missing was a fan as it got quite hot at night. The staff are extremely friendly

My husband and I stayed here for only one night, but it was comfortable and clean. The shower was great and the sheets were soft. They also had a nice communal lounge area just outside our door...it could have been loud, I suppose, but I only saw a couple of people sitting there reading quietly. There were a few games/books...

So nice to find a place that permitted a one-night reservation as our Nova Scotia trip took us to several locations. Very nice accommodations in a great part of town--easy walk to fisheries museum where there were several very interesting presentations. Had a great dinner at Rime Restaurant a block away and a yummy breakfast at the Inn's Montague restaurant... More

We had a short but lovely stay at this hotel. Very comfortable beds and friendly host. Great location. Everthing was within walking distance. Not a chain so it had character. Nice little town with a peaceful little harbor. Great stay.

Hotel consists of several old buildings that have been tied together, resulting in some odd stairs up/down even after exiting the elevator. Rooms were tastefully decorated, with standard amenities for a mid-range hotel. Great location on the main street. Abundant free parking on the streets farther from the water.

Clean, nicely remodeled rooms in a historic building on the main street. Cafes and restaurants very close by. Convenient to everything; shops, food, the harbor with the historic ships and tours. Pleasant multilingual staff. Does have an elevator. Good wifi.

Nice hotel in beautiful Lunenburg. Well decorated old building. Pictures on the website give the impression that it's directly on the waterfront but it's one street up from the docks. If you want a room with a water view there is an extra charge. We found a parking space nearby easily but you may have to walk a little further... More
