We had a lovely room. The location is perfect as you can walk to all the attractions in the Old Town. Parking could be a problem, but we had no trouble. Would stay here again if we ever return to Lunenburg.

We were very happy with the convenience and general quality of the hotel. Located on one of the town's main streets and just a couple blocks from the Fisheries museum, it was a great base for our stay in charming Lunenburg. There were nicely appointed lounging areas on both the first and second floors. Our 3rd floor room was bright... More

The room was not large but was comfortable, clean , new. Had a fridge which was helpful to us. We were here during the Folk Harbour Festival and were able to easily get back to the room for quick naps. Friendly staff. My only suggestion is that they add recycle bins to the rooms.

Smugglers Cove Inn is proof that you can be in the center of it all, book a few nights and still have peace and quiet when you want it and enjoy a wonderful stay. Booked a room with king bed and was very satisfied. Very clean, great shower, no complaints.

The hotel is in the BEST location! Short walk to everything! The patio was nice on the hot July afternoon sipping the incredible lemonade from the restaurant nearby. It was like having my own little studio apartment. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful. I arrived very late to a cheerful welcome note and keys waiting for me. Check out the... More

I really liked how the hotel was placed right in the centre of town. I was able to walk everywhere. Very friendly owners and staff, the hotel is very clean and so quiet even at night. I would go back.. My only negative comment is we took a room facing the water front.... It wasn't worth it. The window was... More

We stayed in the Apartment style room. It had a great fridge, kitchen, dining table, and sitting area. The bathroom was very nice and modern. It has a heat pump, and so we were very comfortable in the humidity. The wifi was also very strong signal. My husband is on crutches because of a broken tib&fib, so we were very... More

After reading a variety of reviews for the Smugglers Cove Inn I was a little worried about the accommodations. I had reached out to let them know that we would be arriving late and was assured that our room would be held for us. We also received a call when we were on our way from Fay at the Front... More

This was a wonderful place to stay, very quiet (even though we were by the elevator we never heard it) and quaint. It is right on Montague Street, which seems to be the main drag. It is only a block away from the waterfront and within walking distance of a grocery store, the harbour, restaurants, art galleries, and the museum.... More

Very nice setting, friendly staff and comfy accommodations especially the rooms with balconies! Very centrally located and very close to the waterfront. Has a restaurant and opens early for coffee and breakfast. Would highly recommend staying here!
