“Great location.”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

The Princess Hotel is well located and some rooms offer great views of the harbor. The restaurant is good and the service is excellent. This is a family business and everyone works hard to provide service.

Room Tip: Try to get a third floor room so as to eliminate noise from rooms above as well as street noise.

We spent 2 nights at this hotel on a dive weekend. The service was fantastic. All the staff volunteered helpful suggestions and really wanted us to enjoy our stay. Also they were very knowledgeable about the area. The rooms were clean and smelled fresh. We had a balcony that overlooked part of the village and bay. The food served in the restaurant was tasty, too. The shops and some restaurants were a short walk. Also it was a short walk to the dive boat. But parking is limited to 2 hours and this is strictly enforced! We hope to return to this idyllic little fishing town and stay at The Princess again.

Spent Canada Day Long weekend at the the Princess and was very happy with our choice.
The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. We had a room on the side of the building and had a large balcony with a side view of little tub harbour which was nice but we actually didnt spend any time there. Too much to do to spend time in the room!
The town is tiny so everything was walking distance.
FYI, the front rooms have a great view of the harbour and people in those rooms could see the fireworks from their balcony. We just walked across the street to see them.
Very happy with the hotel and will stay here again when we come back.

The Princess hotel is the only hotel in Tobemory and is a bit on the noisy side, inherent due to its wooden construction, but the people there are very friendly. However, it has a great view over the harbour and is close to everything. The main reason for a visit is access to the harbour and the Bruce peninsular, dividing Georgian Bay from Lake Huron, which is a National Park and is fantastic for hiking and boating.

I suggest a visit before the middle of June which misses the school holidays in Toronto and the mosquitos that I understand can be a problem at certain times. Make sure you drop into the Tobemory visitor centre, quite laid back but well informed and helpful.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a room at the front, very nice with a balcony to sit and watch the sun go down

We stayed at the hotel in May 2013. The location overlooking the Little Tub Harbour and the ferry terminal is very nice. I inquired about the rates via email and booked a Little Tub Harbour room at 65CAD (off-season middle of the week rate) over the phone the night before we checked in. The person on the phone seemed not to be aware of the hotel rates and tried to charge me a higher rate that later turned out to be the one for the month of June... I must say the recpetionist did call me back to inquire whether we would need a crib for our child which we did not but it was a pleasant move.
The room was nice, clean and with a good view of the Little Tub Harbour. Some would definitely find the room small - just enough room for a queen size bed, two wooden arm-chairs and a table, flat screen TV and a TV stand. I would not say the furniture or the room was dated - everything was in good condition except for a lamp above the head board of the bed - it would not turn on and we just did not bother calling the staff to fix it. The balcony was big. The washroom was ok but had an annoying feature - the fan and the light had the same switch; and that fan was quite noisy.
When we came into the restaurant on the first floor to have our breakfast we were directed to sit at a table in the middle of the room, and not by the window as we would have rather preferred since, as our waitress said, we had a child and her high chair would be in the way if someone would like to take a table next to ours. The thing is the restaurant was almost empty; of eight tables by the window overlooking the harbour only two were taken. I really did not and do not see the reason for us treated like that.
All rates seem to include continental breakfast. Heads up - it is just a coffee and cereals, and there is no buffet style - a waitress would bring it for you, I doubt there would be any second helpings. We declined ours and took their 6.95 breakfast specials instead. The food was good but I must say the portions were small, especially considering the size of the plate. We both left hungry. After bringing our receipt that none of us asked for, our waitress no longer bothered asking to bring us more coffee.
These are all little things but they add up and leave an unpleasant aftertaste.

Room Tip: The best rooms would be the Georgian ones. There are four of them; they are obviously called so as t...

Stayed before season started but still had great time even though ferry and glass bottom boats weren't running. Restaurant in hotel had great food and service. Our balcony overlooked harbor snd view was great. Quaint but modern with a friendly staff willing to answer dumb American's questions.

Spent two nights here with my girlfriend for a getaway. Hotel is clean, lots of parking and great location. It is situated right on the harbor with great views, about a 5 min walk to the main part of town.

Rooms are clean, beds were great and comfortable. Has all the amenities, tv, coffee maker, hair dryer, etc. Board games are available to take to your room. Great balcony to sit on with your morning coffee, or have a drink at night.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Only minor complaint was you could hear a bit of noise from the fellow rooms but that is typical of a older, small town hotel.

Would go back next time I am in Tobermory.

Room Tip: We didn't pay the extra money for the harbor room but we ended up with one on the side of the bu...
