My sister and I stayed here during a road trip of Nova Scotia. When we checked in, we were a little disappointed not to get one of the Victorian rooms, but we were lucky to get any room at all since the annual Folk Festival was going on in Lunenberg, and the Mariner King is conveniently located for waterside events. When we saw our room, in one of the two auxiliary historic houses that have been converted by the Mariner King Inn (additional to the original one), our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.
The elevator to the room (a rarity in a Victorian building) hinted at the creativity to come. A painting inside the elevator took you from under the sea to the surface. Our third floor suite was small, but packed with delightful design and surprises like a painting over the bed that was actually the A/C! The furniture was modern and comfortable. Breakfast (not included with the room) back at the main building is the most plentiful I've seen since I traveled in Germany and Austria. You sit in a glassed in sun room and serve yourself from bounteous buffets in the Victorian dining room and in the sun room.
If I ever get back to Lunenberg, I'll definitely go back to the Mariner King. (Parking is limited to city streets which can be very crowded during a special event, but we waited until the crowds thinned out and moved our car to a spot right beside the hotel.)
