Bruce Anchor Motel

The Bruce Anchor Motel showcases 24 standard rooms.  Some of these rooms are complete with 6 foot jacuzzi tubs.  We have 9 waterview rooms, 3 partial waterview rooms, and one two bedroom suite with a full kitchen/livingroom where guests can catch a rather pleasant glimpse of Georgian Bay. Each room has a balcony or terrace made accessible by sliding glass doors. Most motel rooms are furnished with two queen sized beds.  In addition, all rooms are non-smoking and pet free, and have air conditioning, free wi-fi, cable tv, mini fridges with freezers, except the king rooms which do not have a freezer, and a coffee maker.

The Bruce Anchor Motel serves coffee and tea from 5 am to 2 am in the main office. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance. Behind the motel is a pavilion where guests can have an outdoor meal.  This area is complete with microwaves, toasters, kettles, charcoal bbq’s, and picnic tables available for all guests staying at our motel.

It is especially relevant to note that pets and smoking are not allowed in any rooms, suites, or cottages.


  • Sunset Deck: All of our guests are welcome to use our multi-level, waterfront deck, just across the street from the Bruce Anchor Motel. A panoramic view of our incredible sunsets make this deck the place to be while visiting Tobermory. Also, guests may see the most noteworthy ChiCheemaun pass by, Big Tub lighthouse and boats of all shapes and sizes travel by.  Furthermore, the ever-changing view on the sunset deck is a pleasant way to pass an hour, or an evening, soaking up the rays and the natural ambiance.
  • Upper Viewing Deck: Sheltered and shady, our upper viewing deck is furnished with comfy chairs and tables.  This deck is an ideal location to take in the view with your meals! Curl up with a book or have a snooze while enjoying the refreshing breeze off Georgian Bay on a warm summer’s day.
  • Balconies/Terraces: Enjoy the Georgian Bay breezes from the comfort of your own balcony or terrace simply by stepping outside the door of your room. A great place to savour your morning coffee or sip on a refreshing beverage!
