“Smugglers Cove in Lunenburg”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

My wife and I just returned from a two week vacation in Nova Scotia and PEI. One of our stops was in Lunenburg. We stayed at the Smugglers Cove Inn for 3 days and found it to be a very good property.
The rooms are a good size and the hotel was very clean. It reminded us of staying in a hotel in Germany. No surprise, the Inn keepers are German.
Even though breakfast is not included they do give you discount coupons for the restaurant that is attached to the inn. Breakfast prices are reasonable and the food quality and portions are good.

Room Tip: We had a room that had a view of the harbor and also had a balcony. I don't think it made any di...

Our family loves the Smugglers Cove Inn. It has spacious rooms, fabulous location, wonderful staff, and beautiful views in the front rooms. We cannot say enough about this marvelous little Inn and the wonderful times we have had there. Always superb.

Room Tip: We love the front rooms because of the view, but the annex is fun for groups, and the back rooms are...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights on the off season. We were put in a nice room overlooking the ocean. The room was lovely and the whole stay was very relaxing, with the exception of one morning when we woke up and realized our car battery had died. The lady at the front desk called her husband to come home and jump it for us, which he did right away and we were able to head out for a lovely afternoon of sightseeing. Would fully recommend this inn if you want a peaceful beautiful place to stay with excellent service!

From the first contact, a short notice booking, to the final good bye this was a seemless and pleasent place to stay. The greeting and room assignment was professional and accommodating. We received an orientation of local attractions and recommendations for dining and sight seeing that was up to date.

The room was well appointed, clean and very comfortable.

The hotel is in a good location with all that Lunenburg has to offer within an easy walk.

When we return we will stay here again.

Overall this is a great place to stay. We had a bit of trouble first checking in because they had not recorded my 2nd booking request (I had cancelled our initial booking and then rebooked the next day) but the lady was VERY friendly and gave us the best room in the place (#302 with the king size bed and balcony with waterview). We stayed two nights...overall the place was very clean...great location...and comfortable beds. We would definately stay here again!

Room Tip: The corner unit with the balcony overlooked the main st and you could see the water...it was lovely.

We took a chance because the photos looked good and were not disappointed. However, we did not get breakfast vouchers, even though we enquired. So I'm annoyed that the people in August received them and we, in October, did not. The room was comfortable and it was in a great location.

I travelled around Canada for 6 months and my last stop was Lunenburg and I stayed there for 5 days...
I didn`t book a room in the smugglers Cove Inn but they had a very nice room for me!
The room was very clean and had waterfront view!
They don´t have brekfast but you get a voucher for the little restaurant next to the Inn were you can have great breakfast.If you wannna go out in the evening to get somthing to eat I would go to the Rum Runner restaurant they cook delicious food,it`s really a wonderful restaurant which is run by the same owners of Smugglers Cove Inn.
The staff is very nice and they know the area very well.
It was a great stay
