“Comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2011

The princess hotel is comfort. The room is very comfortable and we added an extra night stay and they accommodated us with only changing a room with a balcony and view to none and a window facing the liquor store and the street along the harbor. Still a beautiful morning breeze and fun place to watch. The continental breakfast has a large selection.

We enjoyed our stay in room 207. The room was nice and clean and the beds were comfy The room doesn't have a view but that was explained to us at time of booking, it does however have a balcony so you can sit and enjoy the view of the adjacent property. The price was alittle steep but I think its par for the area. We really enjoyed our breakfast in the Hotels restaurant. The service was really friendly and fast. Our server was the Granddaughter of the owners, a real people person!

We had a bad experience in this hotel.
1. The room (205) is no window and only has a small door to balcony. The worst is the balcony door is facing a wall. The room is very dark actually.
2 . The chairs and the table in the balcony were very dirty.
3. The Wireless internet connection dropped frequently.
4. Poor breakfast (comes with room). What they called continential breakfast is cereal, toast, and coffee, so disappointed.

This was our annual trip to Tobermory staying at the Princess Hotel. The hotel is family run and they care about our comfort from our early breakfast request to a packed lunch to an excellent white fish dinner. The hotel is in a great location overlooking Little Tub Harbour and very convenient to all that Tobermory and area has to offer. We come looking for orchids and other flowers and are never disappointed in either the hotel or the flowers.
We will be back!

Room Tip: ask for a front room -overlooks the harbour.

We booked two rooms at the Tobermory Princess Hotel in early July before we read the reviews on tripadvisor. We were concerned because some of the reviews were less than flattering and we were concerned that our two friends from Budapest Hungary would be disappointed.

As it turned out, they were not disappointed and neither were we. The hotel and rooms were very clean and comfortable. Perhaps the management read some of the reviews here and spruced the hotel up.

We ate supper in the hotel restaurant one night and the food was pretty good and the portions were large. There were enough Greek dishes on the menu to suggest that the restaurant, and perhaps the hotel, is Greek-Canadian. For breakfast we opted for "special" which was more than reasonably priced and very well done. No complaints whatsoever.

We will definitely return to the Princess but next time we will book our room early so that we can get a room on the third floor because the views would be so much nicer.

Room Tip: Get a room on the third floor for the best view of Little Tub harbour.

We stayed at the Tobermory Princess Hotel in June of this year. The hotel was average, average priced and average rated. (dated though, they need to do some refreshing with their accomodations) We had an interesting dining experience the second evening of our stay. My wife had ordered a Fallafel (sp) plate...it was horrible. The waitress cordially removed the unwanted appetizer and graciously apologized for our experience. Her welcoming smile and lovely demeanour is one of the reasons we will return to Tobermory and possibly the Princess Hotel. As we watched during our dining experience she was helpful and cheerful to the younger staff who were obviously learning the talent of waiting tables. We do not know her name, but would like to thank her for her wonderful serving style. The only way to describe her would be she has very curly blondish hair. She is an asset to the Princess Hotel. We will return.

For a basic hotel, this is the one. The room is clean and comfortable. The reception staff are efficient and helpful. This hotel is a very historic hotel but has been totally renovated. We stayed in the older section but you would never know it. The room is very modern and has ample space even for 3 adults. The continental breakfast is a not very exciting but it's adequate.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the harbour are great.
