Everyone went out of their way to be helpful. Great view of the harbour. Thank you for a great stay. This is definitely a place you should consider for your excursion to Tobermory and the Bruce Peninsula.

Motel is small but very clean. Check-in was a breeze, employee very kind. I had the second floor room on the end with wrap around windows and porch. It was too cold to sit on the porch, but the view was great. I would definitely book a room at this motel again.

Room is big and nice, staff was courteous and very helpful about the attractions. However there no closet for the clothes and no kettle for hot water. Staff is courteous and very helpful. Will recommend this place for other travellers when in Tobermory

Quaint version of Cape Cod New England town. Beautiful vistas. Took the morning ferry to South Beymouth on Manitoulin Island. Don't miss the cinnamon bun at Mum's in Mindoya. Beautiful drive from there to Espanada.

The weekend before the long weekend in May is the time to visit Tobermory. Very few people around, a choice of seats in the restaurants, lots of space in the Blue Bay Motel, and no bugs. Had a wonderful time!

Rooms come equipped with an electronic...
