“A great view of Lunenburg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2010

The Topmast was suggested by Tourist Information when we said we needn't stay directly in town. My wife and I were very pleased by having the view across the bay of colorful Lunenburg. The drive into town for restaurants and sightseeing was easy and parking was not a problem in mid-September. We stayed in a room at the farther end of the hotel; those at the near end are smaller and not as desirable.

Stayed September 2010, travelled as a couple

My spouse and I stayed at this family run "eco friendly" motel for two nights towards the end of our month long holiday in the maritimes.(Sept 29,30 2010)
It is situated beside the golfcourse and all the rooms have large wooden decks off the suites with a atunning view of the Lunenburg harbour.
There were lamniate flooring, fridge, microwave, coffee/tea. Even fresh muffins available at the office each morning for a dollar.
The bathrooms are a little dated and small (shower only) but absolutely spotlessly clean and there is an extra facecloth for makeup removal and an older towel in a ziplock bag to wipe up any spills etc.
The bed and pillows were very comfortable, and the sheets very high quality.
It was a five minute drive into downtown Lunenburg from the hotel.
The woman in the office (sorry I don't remember her name) was extremely helpful with giving us directions and recommendations for meals.
The view alone would make this motel worth twice the price we paid. As it was out of season I believe we paid 75.00 cdn per night plus HST of course :(

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.
