About
Description
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 More 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.
