Excellent location. wondering if the staffs are busy or not, the bagage bin didn't clean up and didn't provide new roll of toilet paper. I have booked two rooms, one of the room has unpleasant smell. Sometime the WIFI cannot be accessible.

We stay here every year for 1 week. As usual, Tonia and the staff were very helpful. Although there was a small problem with the room when checking in, the staff were quick to move us into another room which we found just as nice.

The room was clean and bright and the price was right.

Will return again for sure.

We stayed at the 3 bedroom cottage with friends. The cottage was clean and well kept. The staff are very friendly and accomodating. The location is great. Within walking distance of the glass-bottom boat and the stores"downtown". Sam looked after us checking in and out and before I forget the free coffee was very good.We highly recommend this motel.

We had never stayed here before, but we were certainly glad we did! The staff (Sam) and everyone here was terrific. We got the balcony queen suite which was perfect for a couple and it had a fridge too. The location was within walking distance of much of the town and offered the glass bottom ferry service to Flowerpot Island. All in all a GREAT choice!

Room Tip: We had a queen suite overlooking the water. It had a nice balcony to sit out and enjoy the view.

We have been travelling to the Bruce Peninsula in search of wild flowers and orchids over the last year. Each time we have stayed at the Bruce Anchor Motel - the staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and if you are interested in seing wild orchids or have a hike to the lighthouse, they offer a discount on trips to Flowerpot Island. It is an easy walk to the restaurants and businesses in town, and the departures for Flowerpot Island are across the street. Our latest trip was for Orchidfest 2014 - at the end of May, and as per usual the staff were friendly and the rooms were clean. Oh, and if you have a hankering for coffee, there is always a pot on in the office. If you are on your way to Manitoulin Island, the line up for departure is just beside the hotel.

Room Tip: If there are rooms left that offer a lake view - take one - there is a small balcony on the lakeside...

Excellent Location. Cottages are well kept and clean. Only downside I see if you have a large family with only 1 bathroom becomes hard. Utensils are available and you have all necessities including a big flat screen tv with all the good channels. We got a really good discount on the boat cruise to Flowerpot island since we stayed with these guys.

Tour guides were very informative and it was a comfortable ride.

My son was here visiting from BC and we spent two wonderful days in Tobermory. We have vacationed on The Bruce for many years.This was our first time staying at the Bruce Anchor and well worth it.
The motel room was airy, spacious and very clean.The staff is very accommodating and most friendly.We could watch the stunning sunset from our room with a view of the water.
Don't go without planning on one of their boat tours, beautiful!

Room Tip: The north side overlooks the water....and the sunset
