#3 of 12 hotels in Tobermory
Enjoy the most spectacular view in Tobermory from the Bruce Anchor Motel's "sunset deck". Our deck overlooks Georgian Bay and the entrance to Big Tub Harbour. The Bruce Anchor Motel is located within walking distance of the Chi-Cheemaun. It is a convenient place to stay overnight before boarding the ferry in the morning! All 37 deluxe motel units have balconies or terraces. Step out for a relaxing breath of fresh air, or to enjoy the scenery. A two-bedroom suite will comfortably accommodate a family of four, or two couples, or a small group of divers. All units have a mini fridge with freezer, except the king units, which have a mini fridge. All rooms have air conditioning, free wi-fi, cable tv, and a coffee maker. We serve coffee and tea in the office from 5 am until 2 am. We have a pavilion behind our motel complete with microwaves, toasters, kettles, charcoal bbq's, and picnic tables available to all guests.

My wife and I spent 2 nights here at Bruce Anchor Motel as we planned a cruise with Bruce Anchor Cruises which I also reviewed. Nice motel and nice room and excellent for leaving our car at the motel and walk just down the street to the cruise. Very convenient. If you take a cruise in Tobermory, the Bruce Anchor Motel & Cruises is great.

Great location and within walking distance to Bruce Anchor cruises and docking station as well as The Little Tub Harbour where the center of all fun was for food, shopping and galleries. Room was good and clean including the bathroom. We had a two comfortable queen bed and good working air-conditioner. We had a good rest after a fun day with cruise at Flower Pot Island.

Check in smooth and friendly. The receptionist was the nicest, most helpful person. Showed us a few different rooms. Renovated property,big ice box outside,comfortable beds and room amenities. No breakfast , no telephone in room (the wave of the future I guess). Very comfortable outside furniture to watch the sunset, across the road from the water. Free parking (a problem in Tobermory) and a great deal if you combine room and cruise. Again by far the best place in Tobermory

What a great review Albert! Thank you so much for sharing such kind, positive notes about Bruce Anchor Motel & Cottage Rentals. Our location is certainly very close to most of what the village has to offer. It's great that you made mention of our guests having access to free parking while staying with us. Super to hear that you captured a view of a beautiful sunset right from our facility. We believe it's the finest sunset view in Tobermory. Thank you so much for staying with us at Bruce Anchor Motel & Cottage Rentals! We hope that you will join us again, during your next adventure in Tobermory.

definitely a 2 star. best part was that the bed was fairly comfortable. badly broken mirror in the bathroom. Wine spilled down the front of the dresser and not cleaned up. needs new carpet. don't bother paying extra for the view. definitely not worth it. owner needs to spend some money to upgrade carpet and furniture. won't be staying here again. Not sure who wrote the other reviews cause it definitely is not worthy of a 4 star.
