We recently stayed at the Bright Velo and were warmly welcomed by everyone there. The food and coffee was awesome and the accommodation was lovely. We were right near all the restaurants and shopping hub so walking was the best option for around town.

We did enjoy staying in the old section of this hotel with its creaky floor, vintage furnishings and sense of Bright's past. But there was no host to be found when we arrived and when I rang the hotel's number, Wayne told me he was on his way to Melbourne. He'd left a key out for us and the room... More

Stayed at Bright Velo a few times now and I just love it. It has by far the best coffee in town. The Rooms are affordable and well appointed for what they are. The café has a very sporting theme, it is the hub for all things sporting in the town. Grab your bike, running shoes or hiking boots and... More

My 3rd cycling pilgrimage to Bright eventuated in a long weekend stay at Bright Velo. Mum enjoyed it (she was there to support my race). And I loved it. Suffice to say that it's my go-to accommodation for now. I've been back solo and would continue to do so. Susan and Wayne had been so welcoming and obliging. Coffee is... More

Don't be deceived by the main entrance, when you get around the back you are greeted by a warm and relaxed atmosphere. Bike memorabilia, comfy chairs, and a wholesome food menu. If you can get Wayne away from the coffee machine ((which is great by the way) you can will be entertained by some great stories about professional cycling in... More

Bright Velo offers a warm | genuine | engaging venue for cycling enthusiasts. Very well located in Bright, the staff are genuinely warm and friendly , the hotel is comfortable and set up for cyclists with secure storage and cycling racks as part of the offering. The cafe has an almost "bohemian" element about it. Accommodation is basic and comfortable... More

Had 3 days 2 nights recently staying at Velo Hotel Bright. Second time round for us at Velo and had another enjoyable stay. The apartment we stayed in is getting tired but still clean and comfortable for a group of guys. Breakfast was nice but would like to see them open earlier say 7am to cater for a bigger cross...

Rm 30 was very basic but spacious. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly and the cafe was atmospheric with fantastic coffee. The central location was brilliant for accessing restaurants and shops, as well as a base for both road cycling and mountainbiking. Good faciclity for bike storage.

Bright Velo is right in Bright town centre and perfectly place as a base from which to explore all that the area has to offer cyclists and non cyclists alike. Susan and Wayne are very welcoming, as are all the staff. The rooms and facilities, while not deluxe, are more than comfortable. The cafe has a great vibe and is... More

You don't need to be a cyclist to enjoy this place. You won't find five star slick and shiny here but you will find warm and welcoming hosts, comfy beds and a real homely feel. We stayed in room 21 which has a balcony where you can watch the world go by. Clean but dated rooms at good value prices.... More
