My wife and I needed to get out of the city for a night of R&R and the Rum Runner Inn was perfect. Beautiful view of the harbour, very comfortable room, and friendly staff. Located right in the heart of Lunenburg, we were within walking distance of all the local pubs and restaurants. We'll definitely return.

In August 2016 my granddaughter and I stayed in Rm 9 at the Rum Runner Inn for a few nights. The room was large, exceptionally clean, which delighted me, and bright with a beautiful sun room and balcony. The bed was a king size and very comfortable. The bedding was very soft and white. The Harbour view was just right...

Well, it has taken me sometime to decide whether to review the rum runner. We stayed here in early September 2016 and were given the room right across from the office. I have to laugh when people say try to get the rooms with the balcony as when I asked about them, the owner clearly told me it was way...

Tim L, Owner at Rum Runner Inn, responded to this review

Hello and thank you for your kind review. Our location is right in the centre of the harbour-front district, with breathtaking views overlooking the ocean, wharf and the museum. Hence the direct harbour-front rooms are extremely sought after and are more expensive compared to the street-front rooms. It is about waking up in the morning and revealing under pure beauty...

The rooms and very clean and roomy. We enjoyed our stay as the room we had came with a enclosed patio and we enjoyed a glass of wine while admiring the view. The parking is the main issue, as no parking is available and must find a spot in the streets or the lot across from the hotel but its...

Just enjoyed a lovely stay in this small, quiet inn. Our room had a wonderful view facing the harbour. The room was spacious and very clean. Everything we needed to have a quiet romantic getaway on New Years Eve.

Located in a good section of town. By the harbor and close to restaurants. Room is clean with a nice queen size bed. Not a large room but very Quaint. Very few cable channels but can get the ones I want. Disappointed as the restaurant was closed for the season and it was one of the reasons I chose the...

The view of the Harbour was gorgeous! The King room was well appointed. Had a small bar fridge, sun-porch with chairs, the bathroom is a bit small but it's an old building so it's expected. The bed and pillows were comfy. The Restaurant wasn't open and we were looking forward to eating there - but there are lots of other...

We recently stayed at the Rum Runner Inn for 2 days. The staff were so welcoming from the very moment we walked in to the building. The owner (Tim Lekhi) was informative about things to do in Lunenberg, and the staff were helpful as well. The room was clean and the view of the harbour was excellent. The restaurant downstairs...

We loved Lunenburg and the Rum Runner Inn! The owner was very informative and helpful. The room was pleasant and clean. I noticed the housekeeping staff steaming the duvet cover! The restaurant meal was enjoyable; a little spicy!
