We stayed in a King room with a view of the water. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, good shower, air conditioning. No complaints. The location is incredible in Lunenburg. Steps away from the wharf, restaurants. The grocery store is close by also. I would definitely stay here again.

I cannot praise the hotel owners enough. We stayed at the Smuggler's Cove Inn for 4 nights while visiting Lunenburg. Our flights was really delayed but the owners ensured we can have a contact free check in even though we eventually arrived at 2.30am. Mike and Rita, the owners, make you feel so welcome and you feel like you are a guest in their house rather than guest in a hotel. The place has many rooms, we were given a great corner room on 3rd floor with sea views. Location is perfect and in the heart of Lunenburg. Hope to be able to visit Nova Scotia again and would definitely stay here again. I'd like to see the lovely mural being painted when it's completed.

Smugglers Cove is an exceptional place to stay in Lunenburg. The owners are committed to making your stay a warm memory. We were treated like family and look forward to returning again when we are back. Conveniently located right in the heart of historic Lunenburg it is a wonderful place to be based for your exploration of all this area has to offer. Thank you Michael and Rita!!

Had high expectations based on reviews for this hotel but was a little disappointed. We had a king suite on the first floor which was very spacious with a full kitchen. Needs updating, it was clean but old. There was a patio door at the far end of the suite which provided the only light which meant the room was dark even in the daytime (pictures showed a well lit room). Bed was comfortable and room was clean. Noise between rooms not that good. Someone came in at 1.30am and walked around above us and woke us up. An ok stay.

Loaded with Secrets Smugglers Cove was a great experience. It provides a personal touch big hotel chains cannot. The proprietor and staff are very friendly and helpful. It is perfectly located in the picturesque small city of Lunenburg. The rooms are very clean and accommodating. You can stay away from the hustle and bustle but still have a short 1 hr drive to Peggy’s Bay or Halifax.

My daughter and I spent a week touring Nova Scotia and our stop at Smugglers Cove was the cherry on top. We stayed in room 307 and the sleep and cleanliness of the room was a 10/10. Micheal and Rita were super Hosts and gave us the run down of town which included a history lesson and were to eat. I would highly recommend visiting this property for a great nights sleep and its central location made touring the town on foot easy. we will definitely stay there again on our next visit...Thank you Michael and Rita for a great two night stay!!

As soon as we pulled up, we had a not-so-good feeling. The inn's exterior paint was visibly peeling in many places. I have seen other reviews saying the interior was updated, but it sure looked somewhat dated to us. Our room, a standard double was small, basically Europe-sized, and that's OK -- just be prepared if your book a similar room. Our bed was very close to the hall, and any movement or activity there was easily heard. As is often noted, its location is outstanding, and as is also frequently mentioned, you must park on the street. The inn sits right on the edge of unmetered street parking, and we had no problem finding nearby free spaces in late September; I do not know if that remains the case during the heart of the tourism season. Lunenburg hotel and inn options were limited on the short notice when we booked, so we chose to stay here. If we were to return to Lunenburg, we would choose elsewhere.

10/10 location right in the heart of Lunenburg. A quick stroll away to all the main attractions. Staff was so friendly and the room was very clean and comfortable, spacious too. The hotel has great coffee as well. I had very enjoyable stay with friends and family and I can’t wait to come again.

My stay at the Smugglers Cove was perfect. Michael & Rita, the owners, are so friendly and welcoming. Our rooms were spotless and very comfortable. The inn has a ton of charm and is located right in the heart of town - 1min walk to water front. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable stay, look no further. This was one of my favourite stays in a long time - 100% would recommend to anyone making the trip to Lunenburg.
