I stayed at the Brigantine Inn for 2 nights in late August. Location is definitely in the BI’s favor. It is a staircase (outside plaza-type) and a very short walk across a road to the harbor, and the docked BlueNose II.
I was in the main building - the one where the office is; and I chose the room (Sceptre, Rm #6) by price. It was upstairs (no elevator), and it was quite small – but I knew that when I booked, from their web-site descriptions. It was quiet, clean, and had a small window that looked out onto the plaza stairs, and the harbor.
They have their own restaurant on the lower level, and that is where you’d get ice if you want it, so that must be done during their hours. The registration desk opens at 8am, and closes at 8pm. You have the option of paying up when you check in – in case you want to leave early. And late check-ins can be done at the restaurant. It was the only place I found in Nova Scotia to take Discover Card. And I found the staff friendly.
Parking is on the street. There are meters, but they are enforced M-F daytime only. I never had to park more than 1/3 block away. There are a number of restaurants with outside decks, and pubs – all within walking distance.
I won’t get into the beauty of the town itself. Just bring your walking shoes, and prepare for some hilly walking up and down the grid of streets. Lunenburg Academy dominates the top of the town.
I was satisfied with my experience and accommodations. They certainly have more spacious rooms than I had – but I use my room to shower & sleep in – not to loiter in during the day. I’d book it again.
