We were able to deal directly with the hotel around the corner with regard to our stay, which was most convenient - they were so very friendly. The property exceeded my expectations: it was smart and comfortable and spacious, with a view of the harbour. The flat had everything we needed, and lots of storage space to hid away luggage. Everything in Lunenburg is a five minute walk away, including a large supermarket down the road. Only one downside: it was a little noisy. Talk noise from the bar across the road (which was never heavy music noise) disturbed our evenings a little, but we could live with that, with the apartment being central. But air conditioning vents outside both bedroom windows were less easy to tolerate. A tip to the owners - include a file with all the operating instructions for the cooker, microwave and air conditioning. Having a hotel information file is not the same thing. I'd definitely recommend this place, and would certainly return.
