Clean rooms, great location at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula, easy walking distance of everything in town. The veranda outside our king room had great sunset views across the lake. Staff were very helpful.

On a trip to the Soo we took the ferry to Manitoulin Island. To catch the early morning ferry, we ended up staying the night before at the Bruce Anchor Motel. The motel is located very close to the ferry docks and a short walk into town. Given it was October, cold and rainy - we didn't do walk. The... More

We found this motel after arriving in busy little Tobermory without booking accommodation first. (I certainly wouldn't do that if travelling in the summer). The young lady in the office was lovely and friendly and showed us two rooms, we choose the one with a view looking towards the lake where the glass bottom boat leaves from. Our room was... More

The motel is located very close to the Manitoulin ferry, so it's perfect to check in, park the car, and explore the very scenic town on foot. The room itself (waterside) was generously sized, clean, and with a well-lit washroom area. Lots of outside patio areas conveniently located to enjoy the views, and meet people from all over. Good wi-fi... More

Our Bruce Anchor Motel stay was clean and comfortable. We were on the bottom floor, conveniently located to the parking lot from one side and the back patio door is across the street from a gorgeous view of the sunset on the bay. There are lovely seating areas along the perimeter. It's really pretty when lit up at night. We... More

This motel has a perfect location in Tobermory. We travelled with another couple and were given ground floor rooms together. These rooms had sliders that went to a deck that was furnished with large wicker chairs. The view to the left was amazing. After parking the bikes we could walk everywhere and the location to the chi chi man was... More
