Was not sure what I would find as I always read these trip advisor reviews by tourists like me....so I was pleasantly surprised! It was clean, no musty smells, very friendly welcome and the bed was comfortable. Our view was a parital view of the water but sitting in the comfy chair with a coffee and a good read was...

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. Bed was comfy and there was a closed solarium to our room with wine...

My wife and I recently spent 3 days in Lunenburg and stayed at the Rum Runner. The owner down to the bus staff were excellent and friendly! The room was clean, great view of the harbour, and the food at the restaurant was incredible. Would totally recommend this to friends, and we WILL be back!

Waterfront location is great, beds comfy, owner and staff helpful and friendly and the food is out of this world. The seafood crepes were outstanding and the curry the best I've ever tasted. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Absolutely beautiful experience, we had a room with a patio overlooking the water. Great staff, lovely rooms, amazing views and easily accessible. Close to many attractions (bluenoes) and an easy walk to the core of the town.

Stayed two nights and found the service to be great and the rooms were spotless. Loved the view of the harbour, the proximity of the hotels and the harbour. Will definitely stay again. Tim, the owner/manager,was great and ensured we were happy

The Rum runner inn is a great place to stay when exploring Lunenburg. My room was fitted to a high standard but I would suggest asking for a room overlooking the ocean for wonderful views. The food in the restaurant which opens from 12 noon is of very high quality and exceptional value.

The room was clean but small. The shower temperature fluctuated between hot and cold.There were people running in the hallway most of the night. We were able to check in early which was nice. We never did get to see the parrot that was advertised. The lack of parking was an inconvence too.

In all the years I've been visiting Lunenburg this was the first time I stayed overnight. I had always gazed up at the balcony of what I believed would be the 'ideal spot'... and it was! From the warm and friendly greeting to the spectacular view of the water from the best balcony in town, topped off with the most...
