I was supposed to stay here August 15,16th for a couple days in Lunenburg Nova Scotia. I had booked on booking .com. I had spent around 3 1/2 hours driving there from the further south and happened to check my email. I had an email from Donna at the Top Mast Motel that unfortunately some of the guests had decided...

This visit started off with a call from the owner, Donna, (as we were driving to Lunenburg) saying they had accidentally lost the 2nd of my 2 reservations. I was informed that “my other party” could stay at another motel and that Donna would pay for. I reminded Donna, as I had when I made the booking, that the “other...

The room was very small, but that is completely offset by the lovely deck outside overlooking the Lunenburg harbour. The room was clean. The location does require driving to get to somewhere to eat, or there is a little refrigerator and microwave in the room.

We had the second floor room with a kitchenette and balcony overlooking the water, amazing view. Room itself was basic but completely adequate for a short or longer stay. Stove and small fridge. Wifi was spotty at times. Great food in the area and the manager was very friendly and helpful with many food suggestions.

First trip out east for hubby, my first since '61 (retracing my roots). Hotel definitely made it worthwhile. Clean, comfortable, quiet, amazing view from the huge balcony (coffee in the morning and nightcaps). Ceiling fans very quiet, more effective than A/C. The staff very helpful. Close to everything, shops, touristy sites, restaurants (we walked a fair bit).

It was a total surprise planned by my husband for our 20th wedding Anniversary.We spent 2 night 3 days here. Great motel. Very clean. Very updated rooms. We had the suite upstairs overlooking the water. The view was amazing. Friendly staff. Will definately go back.

As i have stated before in past review's I travel A LOT for my work, so finding a place close to my work site is often a chore. Not this place though, It is very close to the "Downtown core" of Lunenburg, heck you can drive, Walk, steal a cart from the nearby golf course (Not recommended) or swim a...

Lunenburg was not on our itinerary but after visiting the information Centre we decided to stay the night. It was one of our favourite stops so far on a cross Canada motorcycle trip. I'm going to disagree with some of the other reviews when I say our room was delightful. Small, but but spotlessly clean and had all the amenities...

This motel is a blast from the past. If you want your kids to experience traveling in the '60s, this is your chance. The room was clean, the staff eager to help, and the view from your own deck fantastic. However the room was also very small and dated, the bathroom tiny. There was no air conditioning, but to be...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A beautiful deck to appreciate the stunning view of Lunenberg. Couldn't have asked for anything nicer. The room was perfect, clean and well equipped. Staff was friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows. Groceries and liquor store just a short drive away.
