“charming inn in a great location”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

this inn occupies at least three buildings in the center of historic lunenberg. nicely decorated and boasting a very pleasant staff it seems like the perfect spot in lunenburg. parking is a challenge but the price you pay for the great location. our room seemed quite new and well maintained. breakfast was bountiful and delicious. we found nova scotia hospitality to be first rate and tops here.

We stayed in the Crab Apple House and we loved every second of it. The location is perfect and Ian was very helpful and fun to talk with as well. The breakfast was fabulous (I had the Eggs Benny) and all included in price of B+B. I would recommend the Mariner King Inn to everyone - only sorry we didn't stay longer. Our friends stayed in the Cranberry House which was just a few steps away so no problem being in different houses. We also ate at Salt which was very close and alot of fun and great food as well.

Room Tip: Mahone Bay and Chester are very close so days trips are doable and a must see - this would be a gre...

We stayed here for one night and wished we could have stayed longer. We stayed in the newer annexe not the main house and the room was perfect. Not the biggest of rooms but it didnt matter, the bed was sooo comfortable and we had two large leather comfy chairs, great for curling up and reading, coffee machine and all of the other amenities you would expect (but dont always get). Nice little touches of chocolates from the local chocolate shop. Breakfast was served in the main house a few steps across the street and the quality was good. Free parking outside the door after 6 until 10 the following day. Great breakfasts, what more can i say??

What used to be a decent inn has taken a huge step forward. First-class accommodation. Some interesting and good-value packages and specials. Efficient and friendly check-in. Nicely decorated room with comfortable bed, high-quality bedding. Heating and cooling easy to control. Delicious meal in Kings Plate dining room. Interesting German-style buffet breakfast or a la carte choices. Excellent service for both meals.

Room Tip: Some Saturday night traffic noise in our second storey, street-front room.

my boyfriend and i went on a little road trip, with our main destination of lunenburg. we stayed in room 103 for 2 nights, which was great -- I echo other comments about all of the comfy pillows. the b&b is perfectly located in the center of town and everywhere we wanted to walk around. sadly, the italian restaurant affiliated was not open either of the nights we were there, but the breakfast at the inn was incredibly delicious each morning!

Fantastic boutique hotel in the heart of Lunenberg. Rooms are lovely, very comfortable with everything you need. Breakfast was excellent, we were just sorry that neither the Mariner's restaurant nor the associated Italian was open the night we stayed there.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in late May. We stayed in the main building, Room 103, which is on the second floor front. The room was wonderful. It was immaculate and had every convenience one could hope for, and more. The bed was really comfortable (we had 10 pillows). The breakfast was wonderful, being a combination of a European type buffet, and ordering something (pancakes, omlet, eggs) from the kitchen. Besides being in a great location, the Inn has great amenities, an old world charm, and friendly staff. One of the nicest placed that I have ever stayed.
