We were booked to spend a week at this hotel with our kids (4 and 6) after reading some positive reviews on TripAdvisor. The staff at the front desk were very friendly, but Curtis (the Manager) was so rude that we moved to another hotel after spending only one night in this very noisy hotel, very cheaply-built hotel.

A nicer place to stay than down by Little Tub Harbour. Room was large, everything but the Wi-Fi worked. Bed was very hard, like sleeping on the floor, but would go back if the bed was better. Dinner in the Pub was very good.

This resort is nestled in a corner on the very edge of Tobermory. Beautiful location, very secluded. Upon arriving we parked, and walked to the office, (which is also the Pub). We got registered for our room, got our keys and the lady that was at the office provided us with Maps, info and things to do at Tobermory. From... More

Our stay at the Big Tub Harbour Resort was okay, but not up to expectations. Our room was large and quiet from outside noise. If we had been able to open the window, we might have had a better sleep, but since it was very humid, we needed to use the air conditioner which was very loud. The room is... More

My wife and I recently headed up to Tobermory for the first time and didn't know anything about the town or where to stay. The weekend was approaching and most places were already sold out and through the advice of a local B&B where we stayed the night before we found a room at the Big Tub Harbor which was... More

Big Tub Harbor has a lovely, relaxed vibe. It felt charming and sweet and old fashioned, but very clean and orderly. The location can't be beat--right on the water. We rented kayaks right there and paddled out to see the shipwrecks in less than ten minutes. High recommend!

The room we had at the resort is clean and spacious. There is nothing over the top about the room but we had a great view of the harbour and it satisfied us for our two night stay. The restaurant is fun and quaint and the food is very good and priced reasonably. We are planning to return in the... More

When looking for a place to stay in Tobermory, we found the Big Tub Resort, the price was right, the room was large and clean but, the bed was very hard. We were only staying one night and catching the ferry the next day. It was ok.

This is your typical inn. The floors creaked as we walked to our room. All the furniture in the room were wooden - giving an old world feel that was a welcome departure from our urban condo lifestyle. The lake and the famous lighthouse were right behind the property. The seating arrangement there was lovely. Also, five minutes drive away... More

Arrived very late yet the owner didn't mind and was most helpful. Room was very spaceous and clean with a great view over the water. Will stay again if in the area. Close to Tobermory village and ferry...both a 5 minute drive away. Nice to be away from the busy village centre. All staff including cleaner and painter couldn't have... More
