Spent May 8th &9th in the "Flying Jib" room at Addington Arms and I it was a good choice. The room was huge, and Chris seemed to have a genuine interest in our comfort. One example in particular had her offering me her own cold medication as she noticed I was under the weather. The breakfasts were excellent, and based on the locals we spoke to, they were renowned within the community as well. Lunenburg itself can be a bit of a challenge for some to walk due to the hills, and the location of Addington Arms doesn't escape this challenge. Given the great treatment we received however, the "walk" was well worth it.
The only issue that may bother some is some slight noise - being an older buidling, it's pretty easy to hear a variety of things (i.e. people walking in the room above, coming in and out of the building, etc.). Ultimately it didn't affect us at all, and we would have no issue returning for another stay at the Addington Arms.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Addington Arms B&B sits atop 2 fine art galleries and atop the six square block historic district of this UNESCO world heritage site, affording ocean views from all of our suites and room. Shopping, dining and exploring are all just steps outside your front door. We are not your typical B&B but more akin to a boutique hotel, with stocked mini fridges, TV's and en-suite steam-rooms with aroma therapy or an air-jet tub in very spacious surroundings. On-site parking is available as street parking is problematic in the summer months. Our breakfasts are as memorable as the town of Lunenburg itself. ... more less
