“Great Hotel in a lovely town”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for three nights last week after a week in Prince Edward Island and would thoroughly recommend it and Lunenburg to others. We arrived a day early due to a booking mistake on my part but the very helpful German receptionist (I did not get her name) accommodated us with no problem.
Our room was very spacious, especially in comparison to our previous nights at Dalvay by the Sea, and the decor was modern and welcoming. We didn't have a sea view but did not expect it and the room was very bright and airy and our king-size bed the best of our holiday. Breakfast was not included in our deal but we were given vouchers towards breafast at the Scuttlebutt which adjoins the property and does a good breakfast. Another great place is the Savvy Sailor where we had breakfast on the deck.
Lunenberg is a small town but has plenty to occupy you. We were there 3 days but could have done with longer. A special mention for the Fisheries Museum and the library if you need to use the internet.
For restarants, the Rum Runner is excellent with it's farm to fork policy and we also enjoyed the Salt Shaker Deli. There are so many great places we will have to go back.

Room Tip: We had 208 which had no sea view but was very quiet and comfortable.

Nice clean, comfortable inn with a great location (walking distance to everything) and a good breakfast spot. We traveled with another couple that had a room with a balcony overlooking the street. Lunenburg is a great little town to explore in and around. Lots to see and do.

Stayed there for one night. Very clean, very comfortable king size bed. Discounted breakfast was a nice touch. I would stay there again.

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!
