Just enjoyed a lovely stay in this small, quiet inn. Our room had a wonderful view facing the harbour. The room was spacious and very clean. Everything we needed to have a quiet romantic getaway on New Years Eve.

The view of the Harbour was gorgeous! The King room was well appointed. Had a small bar fridge, sun-porch with chairs, the bathroom is a bit small but it's an old building so it's expected. The bed and pillows were comfy. The Restaurant wasn't open and we were looking forward to eating there - but there are lots of other...

We loved Lunenburg and the Rum Runner Inn! The owner was very informative and helpful. The room was pleasant and clean. I noticed the housekeeping staff steaming the duvet cover! The restaurant meal was enjoyable; a little spicy!

This hotel is conveniently located near the Bluenose II and it's museum. You can have dinner downstairs with great food and service. There was a night light in the washroom one of many details taken care of. Reception was warmth and very friendly with clear explanation.
