“Pefection!!!”
Reviewed June 8, 2007

My husband and I were in Halifax for a business conference and decided to take a couple of extra days vacation and wandered down to Lunenburg. What a find!!! We loved this tiny little town and especially loved our stay at the Mariner King, which we were so lucky to find.

We didn't have a reservation, but were immediately drawn to inn due to its magnificant architecture. Once inside we were not disappointed. All the common rooms are very tastefully decorated and the guest rooms are comfortable and welcoming. We decided on the King William Room (unfortunately the Suite was already reserved for the night), with a huge 4-poster bed and view of the harbour.

Breakfast the next day was amazing!! It started with the most delcious banana bread and fresh jam. Then came eggs florentine served with hollandaise sauce, breakfast sausage and a huge portion of fruit. Yummy!!!

I'd highly recommend the Mariner King and hope to return someday for an extended stay. Joan and Ted make you feel like you're at home, give lots of suggestions for places to go and things to do, but are never intrusive. I loved all the little details......wine in the rooms, fresh flowers all around, a rubber duck in the bathroom and chocolate cookies upon check-out.

We had the chance to stay for one night at the Marine King Inn. We were a bit stressed as my luggage was lost and arrived later than I had stated. The hosts were very gracious and showed us to the room immediately. Our room was gorgeous and very clean. The bedding and pillows were amazing, we had a great sleep. We had a great dinner at the Knot Pub, a local haunt. The Inn is in a central location, so we just walked to dinner. The breakfast was so delicious, blueberry pancakes and fresh fruit, great coffee too. We would definitely stay here again!!

We stayed 2 nights here on a tour of Nova Scotia. Our room (front left as you look at the inn from the outside) was really lovely. Antique furniture, subtle heritage colours and a very comfy 4-poster bed. The inn had lots of books, videos etc. for the use of guests, and we felt welcomed and at home.

Breakfast was good, and the owners were very helpful with advice about where to eat. We'd strongly recommend Magnolia's, which is very close to the inn. You can't make reservations, and it's very popular, but we went early and got a table straight away.

Everything you'd want to see and do in Lunenburg is within walking distance of the inn, so it's a very relaxing place to stay, and you can pop back during the day if you need to.

Great dog too!

Out stay at The Mariner King B & B in Lunenberg, Nova Scotia was most enjoyable. The host and hostess were very welcoming and helpful and the location was but a very short walk...one or two blocks from the beautiful residential/historical area and the waterfront with it's charming shops and interesting restaurants. The B & B was immaculate and comfortably furnished and the apple/cinnamon pancakes were delicious.We will definately be back.

I stayed here for one night in April, no reservation, and found a terrific house with friendly owners, classy and spacious antique rooms, comfortable beds, and a terrific breakfast. It was in a central position, and the dining suggestion was perfect. Definitely recommended.
