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. In addition to the sunsets, guests will have the pleasure of viewing the Chi-Cheemaun, a ferry that transports vehicles and people to Manitoulin Island. The ChiCheemaun docks very close to our location. In fact, it backs out of it’s dock and turns broadside almost directly in front of the sunset deck during each of its daily trips back and forth to Manitoulin Island. Furthermore, a wide variety of watercraft traverse these waters, and the islands make a rugged backdrop to the watery vista.
The Bruce Anchor Motel is located within walking distance of the Chi-Cheemaun. It is a convenient place to stay overnight before boarding the ferry in the morning! Anyone and everyone will enjoy the rather fine amenities of the motel and cottages for a longer stay in the beautiful village. Downtown Tobermory, with its cluster of shops and restaurants, Little Tub Harbour, and the ferry dock are within walking distance of the Bruce Anchor Motel.
All 37 deluxe motel units (some offer a glimpse of the water) 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 also serve coffee and tea in the office from 5 am until 2 am. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. We also have a pavilion behind our motel complete with microwaves, toasters, kettles, charcoal bbq’s, and picnic tables, available for everyone staying at our motel.
