We loved this place. Spotless rooms right on the shore of harbour. We took kayaks to the shipwrecks to do some snorkeling then a paddle past the lighthouse. That was in the first hour of our visit! Very close to village and parks. Great little pub with live music and great local draft beer.

We stayed for 4 nights in August. It was 15 minute walk to downtown Tobermory just far enough to be quiet and great for star gazing. The waterfront garden area was a wondrrful spot to relax while the kids played lifesized checkers. The motel rooms were very tidy and spacious. I recommend looking at room pictures on resort website as... More

Just spent two nights at the Big Tub Resort in beautiful Tobermory. The staff and owner were great and went above and beyond good service. The rooms were extremely clean and have a great water front view. We will be back for sure. Thanks for a great stay.

Spent an evening there as we traveled through Tobermory. Everything was nice and clean. Beds were comfortable. The room we had was quite large. We did have wifi, but it does seem to be sketchy in some rooms. Very friendly people . Coffee was available the next morning for the taking at the restaurant. Overall a good experience.

Only 5 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Little Tub, but far enough removed to be quiet and relaxing. This resort is well maintained, the rooms are simply furnished and very clean. The beds are very comfortable. Amenities include a restaurant on-site which offers traditional pub fare...and closes down by 10PM for those wanting an early night. Recommend asking... More

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
