A couple weeks ago we stayed at the Bruce Anchor Motel on our trip to Tobermory.
We had requested a waterview room which was about $149.00 plus tax. Since it was during the week, it seemed a bit steep but we thought we would check it out anyways. The staff were very friendly, which I always appreciate when coming to a motel. The rooms were clean but nothing fancy. Unfortunately we were on the ground floor and didn't get to take advantage of the waterview with the trees and stuff in the way. However, we really liked all the patio area. In front of our motel room, they had chairs where you can sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. As well as an upper deck which was really nice.
Two of the best things for us were the sunset view and the location.
In their ads they boast the best sunset view, so we knew we had to check it out to see for ourselves. Just across the street from the hotel (about a 1 min walk) there is a huge deck overlooking the water. Even though it was a bit cloudy, the view was still absolutely stunning!! Was so romantic, especially if your there with your significant other. In a way, this made up for the fact that we couldn't see much of the water from our room. Was a stunning view! Although there was another couple on the deck as well, it still felt very romantic and the deck was large enough that we still had our own space.
The location was amazing. Walking distance to the water and the sunset deck, walking distance to the boat to Flowerpot Island (you get a discount on the boat to Flowerpot Island if you stay at the hotel) and a short walk to the harbour with all the restaurants, shoppes and LCBO. We found everything was within a 5 minute walk, which was fantastic!
If your going to Tobermory and looking for a great location and sunset view, worth checking out.
