Nice place and excellent location. Close to everything. Booked months in advance. We stayed on the first floor, and everything was OK. Watch for other guests leaving cars turned on by your open window - some people don't pay attention and you get all the odor and noise. Had to step out two times to give those lads a hint... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience while staying with us. Your feedback helps other travellers make decisions when looking at where to stay. You make an excellent point; although we have 2 parking lots the majority of guests use the front lot which means there are often cars parked directly in front of 5 of our... More

Must say we made a good choice. We felt very welcomed. The receptionist was really friendly and helpfull with the information she gave us. We had... More

I am not normally a big fan of non-branded hotels and motels but this time I trusted in the reviews I read. Another reason is that there were "0" chain hotels in Tobermory. We arrived with friends and were greeted at the front desk by a friendly, helpful, and courteous young lady from Switzerland who was doing a summer internship... More

I had a great room, right across the street from the harbor, with windows on two walls. Flowers right outside, chairs to sit and enjoy the view, and next door to everything. The notebook on the table with local information, dining suggestions, and menus was great and the whole place had a warm and welcoming feel to it. Having been... More

My wife and I stayed here from Sun. Sept. 13th., to the morning of the 19th. We were in room 8, a king bed. Everything in the room was fine and well kept. It afforded a great view of the Cheechimaun docking. The central location is an advantage, in that one can easily walk to shops and restaurants. We found... More

Excellent room, great location, and attention to detail made for an outstanding stay. Standard review items are easy: check their website for amenities, for example - they are numerous. Most importantly, however, the atmosphere created by Kelly and staff made for an easy return after a two year absence, and will make for easy planning for a future visit. Each... More

The room is good and excellent place to visit. In the hearth of Tobermory downtown. It's close to all the restaurant and activities. The room are clean and it's a quite place to stay. Service is excellent.
