Big Tub Harbour Rresort need to update their website. If you book at this hotel ask for the second floor room,thats the only way... More

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

My wife and I stayed at the Big Tub for 4 days in July, 2013. The room was seriously overpriced. The room did NOT have a dresser, nor any of the amenities that one normally associates with a resort. The Bootlegger Pub has "box wine" and terrible food - if you choose to stay in the resort you must eat... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this quaint resort located out of the town centre. We felt welcome from our arrival to departure. The staff were so friendly, food was great. The only downside was they did not serve breakfast. We will definitely return

We had a lovely stay at the Big Tub Resort over the September long weekend. For the price you are missing some of the amenities that you are used too / would expect but the general accommodations in Tobermory seem to be on the expensive side anyway. This was a very quiet resort since it wasn't in the middle of... More

We stayed two nights at Big Tub Harbour Resort and really enjoyed it. The place itself is older but the rooms have been renovated and were very clean and spacious. The owners are very accommodating and the Bootleggers Pub/Restaurant right at the Resort was a plus for some. We ate there once during our stay but found you get better... More

We stayed here while on a motorcycle trip. This place was by far the most expensive accommodation and meal on our travels, but far from the best. The room, and dinner at the Bootlegger Pub was worth about half the price that we paid. I realize that businesses in Tobermory only have about three months to make a years worth... More
