“Great time at the Topmast!”
Reviewed 1 September 2010

A word of caution-if you are a using a gps to find the hotel, please make sure you are driving to the one in Lunenburg,,seems there is also one in Truro,,we did a few sweeping circles before we realized it.
One of the cleanest places I've ever stayed. Spotless. Our room was very small, but functional. NO privacy on the deck, but its a trade off as there are deer that walk right by you in the early morning. The walls are pretty thin, but the water pressure is great! In my opinion, it is in the very best location in the town, overlooking the harbour. Amazing view.
The staff is wonderful, so very friendly and welcoming. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. But we'd ask for the room on the second floor for a bit more privacy.

My fiance and I recently stayed here on our east coast trip. The room was a great value and the view over Lunenburg from the private deck was great. We will stay here again if we are ever in Lunenburg.

We always came to Lunenburg for a ball tournament on the long weekend of Sept. for years, stayed in town for the first few years, but then found the Topmast and after that it was Topmast all the way. The girls working there are the greatest people one could meet (hi Mary!!) they make your stay feel like you are one of the family. We haven't played ball for a couple of years now, but we still book there anyway because we miss it so much!

This is a family owned motel in a small town in Nova Scotia. The rooms are immaculate and the price is right. The staff is very friendly. We felt like we were part of the family. There have been recent renovations. Their are wood floors, fully equiped kitchen and the beds are very comfortable. It is a 10 min walk or 1 minute drive to the town. The motel is situated on the golf course. The view is out of this world.

We found the Topmast through the Doers and Dreamers - the official Nova Scotia guidebook. The hotel website looked nice and from the guestbook comments, it sounded like a nice place. We were a little disappointed, however. We were attracted especially to the view that was advertised on the website. The motel sits atop a high hill, overlooking the Lunenburg Harbor. The Topmast is actually outside the town itself - about a 5 minute drive. Each unit has a small deck from which you can see the town of Lunenburg as well as the harbor. The view is great! The rooms are quite small, however, and because of that the decks are not very private. When others are sitting on their decks, you can hear their conversation, and in fact, reach out and shake hands! I was also disappointed that the wireless connection was very weak and we could not get a good signal. The room was very clean, though, and the manager very friendly. I guess for the price we paid -- less than $100, it was a good place for a basic good night's rest, but I was glad that we were only spending one night because it felt really cramped. There were three of us in the room with two double beds and we were definitely tripping over one another.
