We so much enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean and the views were amazing! We ate at the motel in the Bootlegger's Cove Pub. Food was excellent. Staff were very welcoming. We definitely will be back again.

Spent 2 nights at the resort. It was well maintained but they should consider having the standard appliances like a microwave, iron and coffee maker. They offered complimentary tea for breakfast but the water was lukewarm and tasted awful. If you paid, you'd get freshly boiled water. Good for a short stay and 2 kms away from the village where...

I would describe this place as exceeding my expectations. The property is described as a modest budget property and, when I booked a room here, I was expecting small and cramped. Not so. It isn't serviced daily but the room was spotless and big. Liked the hard floors in lieu of carpet. Room a little rustic yet pleasant. Only thing...

Very clean room, well maintained resort. Poor view. This resort could be really nice if they got better beds and added maybe a nice outdoor pool or hot tub. Rooms are decorated very dark. Resort is lacking something. Breakfast on site would be nice. Restaurant on site has very poor quality food. Bed wasn't comfy. For the cost per night...

We had a room facing the harbour with kitchenette and the view was great. It was clean though we couldn't find hooks or bars to hang our used towels. The air conditioner was quite noisy when on, but I also learned from other guests that those rooms without air conditioning were really stuffy. The location is perfect as it is...

Spent 3 nights. Room (#29) was clean, but very creaky/squeaky floors; no way to walk to the bathroom at night without waking your partner. Overall room was adequate, no frills, spacious enough. No kettles, no glasses, no coffee. Bring your own. Outdoor water activities are good. We went kayaking, and paddle boarding. The fact that it was well located and...

Our family enjoyed a great meal at The Big Tub on one of the last nights of our Tobermory cottage vacation. The service was fast and friendly and the food was delicious. Hubby and I were pleasantly surprised to see gluten free pizza on the menu! The view is magnificent, overlooking Big Tub Harbour in all its glory. A stroll...

We were booked to spend a week at this hotel with our kids (4 and 6) after reading some positive reviews on TripAdvisor. The staff at the front desk were very friendly, but Curtis (the Manager) was so rude that we moved to another hotel after spending only one night in this very noisy hotel, very cheaply-built hotel. One of...

A nicer place to stay than down by Little Tub Harbour. Room was large, everything but the Wi-Fi worked. Bed was very hard, like sleeping on the floor, but would go back if the bed was better. Dinner in the Pub was very good.
