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

The Big Tub Harbour Resort is located right on the water. The view from our room was pretty awesome. The boats sailing in and the beautiful clean and clear water is a sight to behold. The rooms were a nice size and finished in a natural wood style ( hardwood flooring no carpet) with nice and comfortable queen size bed.... More

We love this place because it's spotless, the grounds are immaculate and the people working here treat us like family. We play horseshoes, monkey golf and bago then take a swim in the water only 20 steps from our room. A little cold in June!! Our room did not have a towel bar but the hooks and towel shelf worked...

Although this place is clean and nice looking, it offers very poor value for the price! We were disappointed and will NOT return! There are no towel racks, small showers, cheap pillows that are too thin and only two to the room. The bed slides away from the wall with the slightest movement and the wheels do not lock. The...

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
