Our little family of three stayed at the Bruce Anchor Motel. The beds were not so good, the room looked like it was designed in the'70's and never updated. No private terrace. All in all not worth the room price. Upside: tobermory is a nice little place to visit!

I stayed in the king room with jacuzzi - nice and clean room overall, good size bathroom. No hairdryer which was surprising... As long as these kind of rooms are called "luxury units" such a simple thing was expected. First floor's outside space looked nice, but afternoon sun made it impossible to sit outside by my room's doors, and I... More

Stayed in this hotel last week for a day and was very happy. Front desk folks are nice and friendly providing guidance and advice as requested. Room we stayed in (#26) was nice. Adequate parking. I would recommend this hotel anytime. Overall very nice stay. Thanks guys.

I cannot say enough good things about this place. Very close to the lake, with a view. Very close to downtown (which is very small town). Rooms are large and have pretty much everything. Ice Machine worked. Everything was super clean! No blow dryer that I could see, but thankfully I brought one. The staff are excellent and all encountered... More

Stayed for 3 nights during the week. The cottage is about 2 blocks from the motel away from the water and within walking distance of restaurants, the boat to flowerpot island, and the national park visitor centre/trails. Thoroughly enjoyed being able to walk everywhere. The deck with a table is very private surrounded by trees and we enjoyed eating outside.... More

We stayed for one night in July 2015, loved the fact we could walk to everything from our room. Boat tours, lunch, dinner grocery store ...... You name it. Stunning sunset from the hotel owned raised deck. When we were leaving, got into the car and my husband realizes he forgot his phone in the room......... Staff had already sent... More

Selected this hotel due to its location. Parked the car on arrival Wednesday at noon and did not use it again until we left on Friday morning. Everything is in walking distance. We arrived early and staff gave us our room right away. Rooms are a good size, 2 double beds, fridge and good water pressure in bathroom. There is... More

We rented this cottage at just over $300 per night.Granted, it is understood that we went during prime tourist season. Though, it was very pricey for the state of the cottage itself. It was clean, but very run down. Some positives: - very close to downtown core - discount for Flower Pot Island Cruise - close to all attractions -... More

The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Lovely location and a beautiful dock to watch the sunset! We had a comfortable visit here, twice :) It's right at the precipice of the peninsula and well-located within the town.
