“An excellent evening at Mariner King Inn”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

The room was just lovely; the bed was very comfortable, and we loved all the pillows! The champagne and gift basket an extra special treat. And the continental breakfast the next morning was above and beyond, in a beautiful setting. We will be back!

Room Tip: Our room, 101, was very small; not a complaint just an observation.

The Mariner King Inn is a wonderful spot to stay in Lunenburg. It is right in the heart of the town and offers beautiful accommodations. The room we had was exceptionally clean and extremely comfortable. The staff of the Inn were friendly and so helpful. We had a tremendous stay and hope to go back again.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with this B and B!

We had a wonderful 4 night stay at Mariner King Inn in Lunenburg, NS! Nice variety at their continental breakfast, free parking, helpful staff, and just a block from the harbour. What I couldn't figure out...What do we do with NINE pillows on the bed?

This was my first time to stay at the Mariner King Inn despite visiting Lunenburg several times in the past. Now I know why the sign always said No Vacancy! The room far exceeded my expectations and the staff was absoloutely wonderful. We brought our your daughter with us and every effort was made by the staff to make her comfortable as well, which is rare when travelling with a 2 year old! I would recommend staying at this inn to anyone and plan on returning!

Me and my husband stayed in the honeymoon suite and I must say it was the most wonderful weekend we had in a while. The suite is just amazing, very comfortable and cozy. The Inn is well decorated and we really enjoyed the evening in Parlor playing chess. Inn manager Ian was wonderful, very friendly and helpful.

This is our second stay at the Mariner King and it lived up to its reputation as a 4.5 star. Loved room 105, and the Lunenburg bump! Have been recommending the Mariner King for years and will continue. The Manager Ian is a great help as well.

Room Tip: Rooms 105 and 302 are terrific!

For our trip to the Maritimes my husband and I decided to book only B & B's. We knew our trip had to include Lunenburg and I was thrilled to find the Mariner King Inn through a search on the internet. Upon our arrival we were thrilled to find that the Mariner King Inn far exceeded our expectations in every way. The inn was beautifully and comfortably decorated and our every need was met. Exploring Lunenburg was absolutely a highlight of our trip and we loved learning it's history and seeing some truly amazing sights and meeting it's lovely residents. Our return to Lunenburg would absolutely include a stay at the Mariner King Inn because of it's inviting ambience and warm welcome provided by the staff.

Room Tip: The best tip I can give for room choice would be that if you are travelling with a lot of luggage a...
