I love taking advantage of off season rates. It was so quiet! Room was very clean, 2 double beds. Stayed in room 3. Window looks out on to building next door but if you look to your right you can see the waterfront. Just down the hall is an outside patio with chairs and you have really nice full view...

We stayed at the Inn because of a sporting event. The restaurant was not open for the season but there is plenty of choices nearby. The price was great and the service was friendly. You could tell they wanted you to enjoy your visit. The room is basic but very clean. Queen beds would have been nice but nothing to...

We were in what Rum Runner considers their best room. The décor looked like mismatched yard sale finds and I've never been in a dirtier room in my life. The bag in the trash can hadn't been changed in a long time, only emptied, so there was garbage and hair stuck to the bag. The tub and shower curtain had...

My wife and I needed to get out of the city for a night of R&R and the Rum Runner Inn was perfect. Beautiful view of the harbour, very comfortable room, and friendly staff. Located right in the heart of Lunenburg, we were within walking distance of all the local pubs and restaurants. We'll definitely return.

In August 2016 my granddaughter and I stayed in Rm 9 at the Rum Runner Inn for a few nights. The room was large, exceptionally clean, which delighted me, and bright with a beautiful sun room and balcony. The bed was a king size and very comfortable. The bedding was very soft and white. The Harbour view was just right...

Well, it has taken me sometime to decide whether to review the rum runner. We stayed here in early September 2016 and were given the room right across from the office. I have to laugh when people say try to get the rooms with the balcony as when I asked about them, the owner clearly told me it was way...

Tim L, Owner at Rum Runner Inn, responded to this review

Hello and thank you for your kind review. Our location is right in the centre of the harbour-front district, with breathtaking views overlooking the ocean, wharf and the museum. Hence the direct harbour-front rooms are extremely sought after and are more expensive compared to the street-front rooms. It is about waking up in the morning and revealing under pure beauty...

The rooms and very clean and roomy. We enjoyed our stay as the room we had came with a enclosed patio and we enjoyed a glass of wine while admiring the view. The parking is the main issue, as no parking is available and must find a spot in the streets or the lot across from the hotel but its...

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.

Located in a good section of town. By the harbor and close to restaurants. Room is clean with a nice queen size bed. Not a large room but very Quaint. Very few cable channels but can get the ones I want. Disappointed as the restaurant was closed for the season and it was one of the reasons I chose the...
