“mini honeymoon”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for two nights a couple days after our wedding. We had never been to Lunenberg before and we absolutely loved it. The first night we got the last room available and the bed was quite small but the room itself was very clean and nicely decorated. The second night we switched to a king size bed room and it was glorious.

The beds were comfortable, the products in the bathroom smelled delicious.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful.

The breakfast was full of delicious choices.

We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you are willing to spend the extra money, get a room with a view of the water, it will be worth i...

My husband and I stayed at the Arms last week-end and had a wonderful time. I wasn't sure what to expect as it was our first time in Lunenburg, and anything I hoped for was exceeded!The hotel and staff were terrific. Krista at the front desk was so helpful and friendly. She made you feel like you were at home. The room was beautiful, exceptionally well kept, clean, and inviting. The view of the harbour was amazing!
Breakfast though continental, had lots of choices and the coffee is so good!
I also highly recommend the Spa at Ninety4 which is in the building as well. I had the salt scrub and massage and it was heavenly. Be sure to ask for Lacey!
We are already booking for Valentines! Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Room #408 is spacious and has the best view of the harbour!

We just had a wonderful 2 night stay at the Lunenburg Arms. The hotel is located right in town with their own parking lot - a big plus. The room was beautiful with all the amenities including cosy robes and a big whirlpool tub. We had a wonderful view of the harbour. I cannot say enough nice things about the front desk staff. They are master multi-taskers and took care of our every need. We were there late in the season, so many of the good restaurants were closed, but Krista managed to get us a reservation at a great restaurant. One of our most pleasant stays ever. Be sure to try the chef's homemade granola at breakfast. delicious.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the harbour.

My husband and I stayed for one evening, Sat, Oct 20th, in a Exec King Harbour View, paying $159.00 plus taxes...coming out to about $183.00.
I had asked for this specific room - seeing the room on TA - in pics:)
It had a king bed, large sitting area, with sofa and two chairs, and armoire that housed the TV.
.
It also had a small fridge and a coffee maker. We felt the room was very spacious, and the overall feel and view lent itself to an "Inn feel". It was very special for sitting, looking out at the water and rain, and sipping wine. :)

The bathroom was also spacious enough, but not large enough for 2 getting ready to go out. Not much dedicated space in which to place personal items, (make-up bag, curling iron etc., hubby's toiletry bag) so we kept ours in the main room, and had to keep things on the floor when brought into the bathroom. A wee free standing shelf would be ideal in there.
The room was very clean. It could have used a few more pictures/paintings on the walls, as it felt a bit sparse.

There is a parking area across from the hotel, which is very handy, for hotel guests only.

The one big negative, is that the sheets were very pilled. So much so, they were uncomfortable to lie on. We decided to change them - inside out... in the middle of the night, as we could not sleep with them this way. These sheets should have been torn into rags, and NOT put on a bed.
We found the girl that we reserved with, by phone, extremely helpful and friendly. Upon checking in, the gal at the front desk was friendly as well. She had a map ready for us, as we were walking to the nearby fire-hall for a birthday party, (as we mentioned when booking). Nice touch. However, upon check-out, we found this girl to be a bit curt, and uninterested in us. Too bad.
The breakfast was just ok. There are a many B&B's and Inn's in this area, that offer up full beautiful breakfasts. We were missing this the next morning.

Over-all...a nice place to stay, and if they just tweak a few things, a very very nice place to stay.

Room Tip: The higher the room, the better the view!

We truly enjoyed our stay at this hotel! Its location with its parking is perfect. You can walk so easily to the shops and restaurants and to the waterfront. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are comfortable. The bed was softer than usual but we slept well. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were not able to get a room with a harbor view but will try next time for one. Book early so you can have the water view too!

Room Tip: Book early!

After a day of driving thru rain and fog, we finally found sunshine as we neared Lunenburg. The Hotel is well situated - and easy to walk from there to the waterfront - even down the steep roads!
Room was very comfortable - and we enjoyed sleeping with the windows open.
The front desk staff was amazingly helpful - and courteous! Even going out of her way to help us get to the new railroad museum!
After good night's sleep, the breakfast was just okay - the bagels were good, though!
This would be a good location for a longer stay - scenery is so picturesque.

Room Tip: Ask for room on side- one others have mentioned - 408 . We loved having the windows onto the side st...

This is a lovely inn right in the middle of the historic district. We had a fabulous room - top floor, corner unit overlooking the bay. I believe it was 408....vaulted ceilings, large windows and the best view. Huge room with a sitting area and good-sized clean bathroom. I highly recommend spending the few extra dollars for this room. The staff was very helpful and pleasant, although to be honest we only had contact with the front desk girl and the waitress/dining room host. Both of these girls seemed to be doing double duty though! However, throughout our stay in NS, it seems that with the high season over, staff is reduced everywhere. Breakfast was the normal fare of a hotel chain (albeit in a much more pleasant atmosphere) - NOT what I would have expected from a historic Inn so that was a little disappointing. All in all a wonderful stay and would stay here again.
