“Nice clean room, friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

Booked at last minute, stayed in a standard room. Expected to have a view of the back parking lot but actually could see the lake from balcony. Very clean and clearly newly upgraded. Bathroom was lovely, lots of space and everything looked new. New carpet in room as well. Young staff both at check in and check out were friendly and helpful. Coffee and tea available in the office in the morning. Will definitely stay here again, hopefully when the weather is warmer and we can enjoy that view from the balcony. Short walk from the motel parking lot down to the ferry.

We stayed at Holly's Cottage which was a pleasant surprise for us. The rooms were clean and looked modern. There was one big living area with all the rooms in the back. There was access to a BBQ and a deck. We would definitely consider staying there again. It's about a 5 minute walk to the town and maybe a 10 minute walk to the ferry.

My friend and I went to Tobermory for a night. Stayed here. People are very friendly and the hotel was clean and nice. Really close to the water. So in case if you want to go for a walk in the night...its right there!

Good location, water front, 5 minus to business street and restaurants; friendly front ladies, help us to get information, free coffee and boiling water in the office 7am-2am; room clean, my 2 yrs old boy like the water front view room so much. We will come back on next visit for sure.

Stayed in Sis's cottage for a boys golf weekend at Cornerstone Golf Club.
This cottage was centrally located to downtown and easy access to shops and restaurants.
Cottage was very clean with updated amenities, TV,patio and BBQ.
Julie was very pleasant and accommodating both on the phone and upon arrival with local information.
Thanks for a pleasant stay.

The Bruce Anchor Motel is at the northern end of Highway 6, right across from the water, and at the end of the ferry line-up road. Its rooms are clean and well maintained, and the beds are comfortable. Staff are very pleasant and friendly. If the coffee in the office isn't ready, they will make a pot on request. An added bonus is the 25 to 50 percent reduction on fares for the glass bottom boat tours (depending on the season) right across the street. The large flat-screen TV provides excellent reception of many channels. There is free Wi Fi which works well. All restaurants, shops and docks in Tobermory are within easy walking distance.

Unfortunately, one can hear the showers in adjoining rooms and the Moen cartridge in the bathroom faucet required replacing. Nevertheless, our stay was pleasant and comfortable

Room Tip: Rooms on the main floor have excellent water views because the motel is split level. Do not pay extr...

Otherwise - super: friendly staff, ultra-clean. Oh, I'm picky about coffee - and they didn't have good one. But whoever considers liquid from Tim Hortons as a coffee, might like this one as well.
