I visit Big Tub Harbour Resort every summer and always have a great time. This family owned and operated business gives a true experience of life in a National Park. It is right on the shore of Fathom Five National Marine Park and about 15minutes drive to Cypress Lake Provincial Park. The motel rooms are always spotless with wonderful local... More

PROS -clean -friendly and helpful staff -quiet and peaceful location -refrigerator in room CONS -uncomfortable bed (no box spring-rectangular wooden frame that was too small for the mattress) -old tube style tv -no wifi in our room or it didn't work Conclusion A bit pricey but nice comfy place to stay :)

The rooms are newly renovated and spacious, the views are beautiful. We were right under the staircase and it can be noisy. The complimentary coffee is terrible, probably the worst I've ever had. Overall we had a great vacation!

No wifi in our room (end one, 2nd Flr, facing woods, not water) even though advert states free wifi. Needed connection to do some work. Talked with owner & he said, "does not say wifi in every room; just that it's free." Asked him if he could compensate or move us, he said it was not his fault- the carrier... More

Stayed at the Big Tub Resort in Tobermory, Ontario Canada in July of 2014. Our overall experience with the hotel was good. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The hotel sits right on the harbour with great views of Georgian Bay and some of the islands. Ate at the on site restaurant for one dinner and food was great.... More

On Tripadvisor, Big Tub is just listed as a place to stay. But its pub/restaurant is pretty much the best in town. There's a great view, patio, good service and selection of drinks, and the menu delivers a good product at reasonable-for-Tobermory prices.

This was a hotel booked for me for a Dive weekend in Tobermory. Literally 50 meters from the dive site. I was welcomed with "Hi, are you Eric? we've been expecting you" now that's what I call service. The front desk was quick and super friendly. The grounds are well maintained and very modern. Our room was fantastic and new... More

This is one of the best finds for us in a long time. It's quiet, in a more residential/cottage area of Tobermory. Over looking a marina with beautiful water views from every room. Very clean rooms and manicured landscape and super nice staff and owners. There's a pub/restaurant with a patio on the water that has a limited menu but... More

Stayed 09/2013 Stunning location but the mold and mildew room made my husband and I very sick. Friendly staff but they completely down played the mold problem. A real health hazard IMHO. I'm not the first to comment on this issue. We had the single rise next to restaurant and suspect all the rooms in that particular building are affected.... More
