Great value for the room and central to all that Bruce Peninsula has to offer. - spitting distance to Tobermory/ Ferry and Snorkling - they rent boats right out front of...

My family and I have just returned home from our stay at Big Tub Harbour Resort. We were greeted warmly by the staff and since our room was not ready yet they offered some options for us to do in the mean time and reported that they would let us know as soon as the room was ready. We took...

This place needs some TLC. The walls are almost bare, more so in the bathroom (not even a hook for the towels), the beds are basic and the floors are very noisy (although in all fairness, the place "warns" you about it in every room. If you're on the lower floor, every step taken upstairs will resonate in your room...

I found the Big Tub Resort very pleasant, quiet and with a very nice scenery. The restaurant was nice but I found it didn't have a wide selection. Our rooms were nice although the beds were very old. Overall we enjoyed our stay, with a few minor fixer-uppers this place is great.

The hotel is immaculately maintained and is in a great location. It is situated right on the water with a marina in front. It's not right in Tobermory it's a short drive away. The grounds are pretty with flowers, rocks and trees. There is lounge chairs by the water and two charcoal barbecues with a picnic table by the marina....

The title summs up our experience. The location was stunning and could not have been better to access all that town has to offer: kayaking, swimming, restaurants, boat tours etc. The lady at reception gave us really great tips on how to best visit the parks to avoid line ups and save money. Was super friendly on the phone when...
