“Amazing view, great room”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Stayed here for a wedding and had a great experience. Amazing views, continental breakfast included, very accommodating staff. Agree that rooms are a bit pricey but not considering the location. Short walk to the harbour and situated smack in the middle of Lunenburg.

Stayed as part of a block booking for a friend's wedding in Lunenburg. Great service, great hotel, beautiful rooms. Would definitely stay again. Close to everything in Lunenburg (although pretty much everything is close to everything). A little expensive considering we were part of a block of rooms.

We were so pleasantly surprised to find such a nice hotel. Our room had an exceptional view of the waterfront and was very clean and spacious. Easy walk to great restaurants with exceptional seafood far.

Room Tip: Room 408 had a spectacular view of the water. A delight to open your eyes to in the morning as the...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Lunenburg Arms for a mini-honeymoon after we got married. We had originally booked to stay in a harbour view room for our wedding night, but the timing of our wedding got changed and the idea of driving out there at 2 am and not getting to enjoy the amenities did not appeal. I phoned the hotel to see about changing our reservation to the next night. They were out of regular harbour view rooms, but Jeff at the desk was so awesome and booked us into the harbour view loft suite at the same price.

Upon arrival, our room was not ready as they still had the note from before that indicated we would be arriving late in the evening. The woman at the front desk phoned up to housekeeping to let them know we had arrived and they went to work on our room. We were allowed to leave our bags at the desk and go wander around the town and the woman (I'm so sorry I don't remember her name!) took them up for us when the room was ready.

When we were able to get into our room, we were so pleased with how clean and nice everything was. There is a living room and bathroom on the lower level with a fridge and coffee machine. It would appear that the couch folds out to accommodate more people. On the upper level is a huge, airy bedroom with beautiful natural light pouring in the two small windows that overlook the harbour. We spent a few hours relaxing and took showers before dinner. They provide a great line of shower products, including all the usual suspects that the lesser chain hotels have stopped providing, like lotion and a shower cap. There were also bathrobes provided.

The bed was heavenly. After a week of running around getting the wedding errands taken care of, it was fabulous to have a nice bed, soft bed to crash in. I'm also anal about checking for bugs, and this hotel as well as another we stayed in in the Halifax area have both invested in mattress covers to prevent such problems, as well as, I'm sure, to increase the life of the mattresses.

Overall, a wonderful stay with gorgeous views of the water. This hotel is conveniently located to walk anywhere that you want to go in town and provides free parking to guests. Awesome!

The Lunenburg Arms was a great stay right from the first encounter via email with the reservations agent. When we arrived we had a friendly check-in experience, the room was impeccably clean with a beautiful view of the harbour. I had read the other reviews commenting on the prices however I found the value to be excellent. In Lunenburg in the summer if you can find a place, you're likely to pay comparable rates at any nice property. Lunenburg is a waterfront town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that brings tourists from all over the world; if you are looking for a bargain, you should probably look inland. I think what sets the Lunenburg Arms apart is the friendly service and attention to detail. The front desk made dinner reservations for us, had excellent directions and suggestions for local activities, the parking was complimentary as was the continental breakfast. The beds are also extremely comfortable. We also took in a trip to the spa and had excellent friendly service and the prices were half of what we are used to in the city. This was a great visit overall and if in Lunenburg again we would definitely look here first.

Room Tip: Harbourview rooms have a beautiful breeze off the water.

Very nice hotel. Get a room w view of the water, worth the small premium. In house restaurant was very good and staff was fun and helpful. Would stay here again definitely. Chef was wonderful. Checked the table several times.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is just a short distance from the waterfront and close to many restaurants, galleries, shops and an excellent museum. Our room was pleasant--window open with a breeze coming in when we arrived! Rooms are nicely furnished; and everything was quite comfortable. Would definitely stay here again. Breakfast in the morning was not elaborate, but it is so nice to have it included in rate. Staff was accommodating. Absolutely no complaints!
