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... More

I arrived to Lunenburg just as the museum closed and no real plans or arrangements. The search for a room was fast and simple. I had wanted a bed and breakfast but they never returned my call - guess they were full. Things happen for a reason and as luck would have it the Rum Runner had one room left.... More

Very clean, large room overlooking the harbourfront. Paid a little extra for the view, but was worth it.The Bluenose Schooner was in port and was very visible from our room. The staff was friendly, and the owner ensured we had parking, which is at a premium in the area. Only downside was having to haul heavy suitcases up stairs as... More

Such a treat to have balcony view of this beautiful place. Hosts were very friendly, as were the parrots. And very very nice soap! Thanks rum runner. Easy to explore Lunenberg from here, is in the heart of the town. Sunsets and stars included. A great stay.

A very positive experience. Right on the harbour front so is in close proximity to all activities. The staff were friendly and helpful taking an interest in the wants and needs of the customers. Rooms are spacious and clean. Bed comfortable and bathroom although small was well finished. Only down point was the narrow steep staircases in the building. Take... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Rum Runner Inn. Although we probably had the worst room right behind the office, we were hardly in our room as the town is so cute with lots of great shops and restaurants. We also enjoyed having a cocktail on the back deck of the hotel at the end of the day. This hotel... More
