“HEAVENLY INN”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Small historic town. The Inn is on the best street for shopping and restaurants and water views are available. Inn has an elevator and a restaurant for convenience. Good staff. Pleasant rooms. Nice choice for exploring neighboring towns and sights. Gold course across the bay. Try The Knot pub for a real pub experience a few blocks away.

Room Tip: Water view rooms give you a view of the harbor and the bay. Third floor rooms are accessible with el...

We stayed here in late June 2014. The hotel is in a central location, close to the water and sites of this town. The hotel was super clean but in need of an update. Older style rooms and furnishings. The a/c was ancient, loud and the one in our room didn't work. When we told the woman about this at checkout, she showed no concern, no sorry for the inconvenience....nothing. So because of this I would probably stay elsewhere next time. We happened to meet the owners of the Boscawen Inn while we were in town and they were so friendly and nice. I would probably stay there next time.

We enjoyed our overnight at the Smuggler's Cove Inn. Lunenburg on June 21st, 2014.
It's a beautiful Inn with welcoming staff. We had a wonderful breakfast at the "ShuttleButt" next door on Sunday morning. We'll be back!

Good central location in a very quite and peaceful town. There are several restaurants and attractions all within easy walking distance. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast at the attached restaurant was excellent.

Smugglers Cove Inn was a nice place… most of the buildings are old and quaint in this part of Lunenberg, so you need to expect that the inn is not a modern one. It did have an elevator though! The rooms were clean, nicely decorated, and stocked with the usual amenities. Both of the women at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. It is not a B&B, so breakfast is not included, but we were given a $3 a piece voucher for the breakfast next door and it was not expensive. I liked the sitting rooms on each floor so we could meet there with our friends who were in another room on the same floor. The location is perfect… we were able to walk around the whole town (it's not very big, but has some challenging hills) in under an hour. There are plenty of shops in the area and some nice places to eat.

A superb 2 night stay in a quiet town, clean comfortable rooms, friendly helpful staff, We had 3 rooms for the 6 of us no adverse comments at all. For a good value meal try the Knot inn on the edge of town .friendly with good beers.

Room Tip: room 303 a large room with a small balcony

Lovely older hotel completely refurbished; Cindie & Karen? at front desk fantastic source of info for attractions. Karen? (4 month employee) actually went up to my room to help me get on the internet. These people bend over backwards for their guests. Parking is on the side street or across the street (free but limited but we were there off season so not a problem). Spotless room, food vouchers for attached restaurant; friendly girls that clean your room. The only thing negative (but not a real problem) is that the a/c was noisy and I would suggest maybe a small shelf underneath the mirror in the bathroom and maybe a small towel bar on the wall by the sink. Since this is an older hotel, the bathroom is small but manageable. The towel bar is mostly behind the door when the door is open. These are small suggestions that do not detract from our overall satisfaction with this fine hotel. And if the a/c noise bothers you, they have great cross ventilation when you open the windows. We stayed in room 309; really cute picture on the wall as well as a darling mirror in the bathroom. 4****

Room Tip: Room 309 had a fair view of the water; there was a larger room next door but we were quite happy wit...
