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! Step out of our rooms for a relaxing breath of fresh air, or to enjoy the scenery of our Georgian Bay shoreline. 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.

We recently had a pleasant stay at the Bruce Anchor Motel in Tobermory. The motel is ideally situated - both Little Tub and Big Tub Harbour are very close or a short walk away. The Reception and Housekeeping staff were friendly and made us feel welcome. As far as we could see, the motel had a good adherence to the current COVID-19 restrictions – everything was sanitized for example, and only one person at a time was allowed into the motel’s office. Masks had to be worn in designated spaces. Overall, our room was very clean, quiet, and the beds very comfy. All the towels in the bathroom were literally paper-thin and, weirdly, refused to dry despite their thinness. Our room was comfortable but kind of dated and in need a facelift, although I believe the bathroom had seen a tub renovation at some point in the recent past. Initially, the only cause for concern I had was the room security. Rooms on the top floor, where our room was, had a dual entrance: the regular room door plus a sliding patio door which opened to a common balcony shared by the entire wing of the motel. I was surprised there was no security bar to put in the track of the sliding door, as anyone could enter the room from the shared balcony. The flimsy lock on the room’s front door was a further concern, and the room still used an old-fashioned key entrance. It had been a long time since I’d seen one of those! Bruce Anchor Motel, though, actually proved to be a very safe and comfortable place to stay while in the wonderful town of Tobermory, and I’d recommend it if you’re looking for a clean, centrally located base while there.

I stayed here for a couple days. As a hiker was a bit disappointed that there was not any drinking water to fill my backpack bladder. However, they accommodated me with bottle water. They adhere very strictly to Covid procedures and the room was clean. There is a bar fridge and ceiling fan. We had a balcony but it was not private as there was no separation between the rooms..just one long balcony. We had a partial view of the waterfront. There is lots of parking available. It is right beside the car line up for the ferry so there can be road traffic and annoying drivers with their radios blasting.

Great location near the water and the town center. All rooms have external access and a balcony. We stayed in a superior king room, and it was reasonably large with two chairs and settee. A problem with the heating unit was quickly resolved.

Very expensive for a two star motel that is outside the main area. Outlets and lights not working, old broken furniture. Bring your own towels, the towels here are paper thin and old, you will need soap. Asked for items and felt interrogated... no thanks. $612.00 for TWO NIGHTS!! Book elsewhere.
