The Dockside is a unique hotel/restaurant located in an old building on the main street in the center of historic Lunenburg. The hotel has four huge rooms, all with magnificent views of the harbor and hillside. The rooms are on the second and third floors over the restaurant. There is no elevator and the second floor hall is a bit...

We stayed at Inn for 2 nights when visiting Lunenburg. We had a room overlooking the harbour. Stunning. The Bluenose was in port so just added to the specialness of being in Lunenburg. The Inn itself was average although that didn't matter because we were so thrilled with the location. The room was dated but clean. They probably should consider...

Clean new bathrooms. Courteous, but needs to update bedding. Parking was a little dicey if you arrive on a busy tourist day but it thins out later. Ask the front desk for parking tips. It had a strategic location with just steps to the museum, Glimpses - the Tuesday/Thursday local theatre, the waterfront and restaurants.

We had a top floor spacious room with amazing views!! Our family of 5 could have stayed there for more nights, it was so comfortable! The room was a studio style perfect for families. 2 beds and s pullout couch. Kitchen was great, well stocked with wares. Bathroom was spacious. Couldn't have been more happy!

The Inn and Restaurant have a good view of the dock and the location is great. In-room Internet was not usable. Room 4 is noisy with 2 air conditioner units outside the windows. The sofa bed was very good - for a sofa bed.

The view from the rooms cannot be beat: you are right on the harbour. The room itself was a bit outdated but huge. The bed was rather firm, there was a fridge and microwave but no coffee maker and you couldn't control the air conditioner, which was very weird. We asked at the desk to have it turned off, were...

Our family of four stayed in the studio apartments for 2 nights May long weekend. It was wonderful over looking the waterfront, and quiet and clean. Huge room with separate tv area and kitchenette, with full size fridge, oven and stove. Nice to have separate beds for the kids with two double beds and a pull out couch. Highly recommend...

This place needs some renovations big time,from the outside this place look very good, but the inside it's another story and I guess that's why the rate was right, good think going for them is the view and that will not change

Arrived in Lunenburg about 5pm after long drive from Pictou. Booked a room on the top floor and it was truly magnificent. Huge room with two massive double beds, kitchen and bathroom. Dining table and chairs. A really fabulous location overlooking the harbour. one of the best places I have stayed in as so different from those boring hotel chains....

Room with a fantastic view of the Harbor. Food was great and Staff were very friendly. The Inn only has a few rooms available we paid a little more for the bigger room which was good. The location of the Inn is in the centre of all attractions. Horse and Carriage sightseeing tours looked wonderful.
