My daughters and I stayed here in August. The room was very spacious and clean. The location cannot be beat. The owners were very friendly and happy to give us recommendations of things to do. The only downside is that there is no on site parking. We did, however, find parking quite easily just up the street. And that is...

We recently ( Aug2016 ) spent two nights in Lunenburg and were very happy at the Smugglers Cove Inn......great location, front desk staff super friendly and welcoming, room nice and clean, very comfortable, suited us perfectly! We were impressed with the bathroom as it looked so fresh and seemed brand new. Also the adjoining restaurant was great, we only tried...

We were immediately greeted with a smile by the inn's owner upon our arrival who checked us in with ease. Our room was spacious and clean with a private balcony looking out onto the streets below. The location was great - walking distance to everywhere (albeit Lunenburg isn't very big to begin with). Breakfast isn't included but there is a...

We were there a week ago for one night stay. It has one of the best location. It is small block away from the waterfront. You can walk to the restaurants, museum and Blue Nose!!! The hotel self is spotless. Friendly staff and were very helpful. The restaurent next door is great for breakfast.

If you plan to visit and stay in Lunenburg NS in the summer, best to book ahead. And book here! We ended up here on a Saturday night. After having no luck finding a room in Bridgewater, we crossed our fingers and drove to Lunenburg. We headed straight for the information centre and asked if they knew of any available...

We had a lovely room. The location is perfect as you can walk to all the attractions in the Old Town. Parking could be a problem, but we had no trouble. Would stay here again if we ever return to Lunenburg.

We were very happy with the convenience and general quality of the hotel. Located on one of the town's main streets and just a couple blocks from the Fisheries museum, it was a great base for our stay in charming Lunenburg. There were nicely appointed lounging areas on both the first and second floors. Our 3rd floor room was bright...

The room was not large but was comfortable, clean , new. Had a fridge which was helpful to us. We were here during the Folk Harbour Festival and were able to easily get back to the room for quick naps. Friendly staff. My only suggestion is that they add recycle bins to the rooms.

Smugglers Cove Inn is proof that you can be in the center of it all, book a few nights and still have peace and quiet when you want it and enjoy a wonderful stay. Booked a room with king bed and was very satisfied. Very clean, great shower, no complaints.

The hotel is in the BEST location! Short walk to everything! The patio was nice on the hot July afternoon sipping the incredible lemonade from the restaurant nearby. It was like having my own little studio apartment. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful. I arrived very late to a cheerful welcome note and keys waiting for me. Check out the...
