The Inn is very nice and has all the required amenities with pleasant staff. I would recommend anyone stay here. The location is however what it's all about. Lunenburg is quite the visual experience with friendly locals and lots to see. For a memorable maritime experience it would be a wise decision to stay in this fishing village. The feeling... More

I cannot express what a wonderful stay we had. The service was beyond our expectations The owner was fantastic providing us with his full attention. He couldn't do enough for us. The restaurant was excellent. Five star. Food was fantastic. The Indian was delicious. Best there is. I think one of the best in Nova Scotia.

Recently stayed here with my teen daughters, and had the best time. The Inn is very clean and quaint. We stayed in room 6, if I recall correctly. We paid a little extra for harbour view, and it was so worth it! We had a little balcony with cozy chairs that we could just watch the harbour, sunsets, sunrise etc...... More

Our family stayed in one of the larger suites with a harbour view. The room was really clean, comfortable and spacious. The Inn is located close to many great restaurants, galleries, and the harbour. The staff was very welcoming and helpful in planning our day in Lunenburg. I will definitely stay here again.

We had the most comfortable king size bed in a room with a cute little sun room and an awesome view. Hotel staff were wonderful and friendly especially with our 2 year old and his obsession with their office parrot. We lucked out with street parking (free 5pm-10am) and during the day the staff checked up on our meter and... More

The room was street level where you entered. They only drawback is that you have... More

Extremely well organized Inn, booking check in, check out was all hassle free. The location couldn't be better with the wharf and restaurants right outside the door. The room was clean with everything you would expect. No dedicated parking but the public lot is close by.

We really enjoyed our stay last weekend. The rooms are a little dated but the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on. The view from our room was "second to none." It's on a noisy street, but the room is very quiet.

We had a great stay at the Rum Runner! Tim and his team are incredible hosts. Room was clean and while a little tight for 4 of us (2 adults and 2 tweens) it was really good overall.

Just left lovely Lunenburg and the very nice room 8 at Rum Runners. The view from the sun deck of the harbor and various ships was terrific. Especially Bluenose II! Tim and staff were wonderful and added a lot to our stay. We stayed 5 nights and we're able to explore the area a lot. Highly recommend Rum Runners.
