Our two nights in this hotel were pleasant. The room was clean and tidy, but was not luxurious. It had a shower rather than shower over a bath ( we liked the shower set up and the water pressure was great!) The hotel itself is one street away from the wharf and has the restaurants and shops on its door....

Start of May and pre-season so Lunenburg is quiet. Travel dates changed enroute to Lunenburg. Really helpful of Eva to adjust our booking last minute. Huge thanks as she responded immediately. King and Queen bedrooms are spacious and clean. Internet fast after previous Cape Breton National Park dial-up pace. Available laundry machines and service excellent. Restaurant not yet open for...

We spent two nighst here the first week in May. We received a friendly welcome and our room was very nice and clean. We were a little ahead of tourist season which made for a nice quiet stay. Many restaurants and shops not open yet, but the location is great for walking around town and down to the waterfront area....

Spent a night in Lunenberg in this historical building. The decor is a mix of Canadiana and Scandanavian; bright, simple, clean and some modern flair. The bed was very comfortable. Our room was bright and airy and we appreciated the little balcony.

Very nice Inn, convenient location and room was comfortable, we were facing the water so excellent view. The location was just off the waterfront so close to everything. Lovely walk to local attractions and restaurants.

Spent one night there in early February and loved it. We had a room with a king size bed. Room was immaculate and carefully designed. Has a German/Swiss feel, which I guess comes from the owners. No restaurant or breakfast at this total off-season, but very nice accommodations. Right in the heart of Lunenberg, on Montague street, near cafés, shops...

From the time we met with the 2 ladies at the front counter at time of check in giving us instructions as to where to unload and park, to the time we left they were most accommodating and pleasant to talk to. These 2 ladies know what excellent customer service is and how to make sure their guests are looked...

As a travel-weary urbanite seeking a quiet place to work in peace for a few weeks, I called Smugglers Cove Inn and was intrigued by Eva’s warm, business-like, and distinctly European voice. Her willing answers to my questions convinced me that I would indeed find the comfort and efficiency that I needed. What I didn’t expect was the overtly appealing...

We recently stayed here for two nights and found it comfortable. The only concern would be for people that don't like stairs. You need to climb 5 stairs to get in, and then the elevator has steps right outside of it which I thought was odd. The rooms for comfortable and the location is great. The Internet is also quite...
