Great location to Little Tub Harbour/town centre. We stayed in an end unit on the ground floor. It was quiet. Cozy beds for sleeping. Rooms are clean. Nice bathroom. 2 small fridges in the room. There were BBQ's available as well. I didn't know in advance or I would have used them. Front desk staff were helpful. We took advantage... More

Loved our time in Tobermory and our stay in Mendicino #1 cottage. Nice, clean and very spacious. Great location with a short walk to everything. We had rain so we were so happy to have the space while traveling with a couple kids. We had room to watch t.v or go off and read a book. Helpful staff at the... More

Great cottage, clean with all the amenities perfect for the boys to stay after a weekend of golf at Golf Tobermory ! BBQ on site, TV for hockey playoffs and a well kept property. Thanks to Julie and her staff for a great stay again this year. The Boys

We stayed for couple nights and had a very positive experience. Customer service was good - friendly, informative and very helpful. Rooms were clean (we did ask for an extra bed sheet to put on top of the comforter), jacuzzi jets were very clean, and overall room smelled and looked clean. Few things would make the Room perfect are: not... More

I had stayed at the Bruce Anchor about 18 years ago when it was just a single building, not many renos, etc. I just returned and was pleasantly surprised; new additions and updated rooms. Yes we went out of season, so we got a great rate, not sure the prices during the summer but definitely a great spot to stay.... More

This was the second time I have stayed here. The first was in June for an overnight stay on a motorcycle trip. I found the Bruce Anchor to be a great place to stay in June and I was not disappointed this time. My brother in law and I were both very pleased with the room it was very clean... More

It is outside the marina, food and shopping district. The lake view is pretty limited (see photo). Although it is a motel, it is pretty expensive, $200 / night in summer, minimum stay is 3 nights, breakfast is not provided. If you stay here, they will give a discount to the flower pot island but only for the 1st boat... More
