We stayed in room 23. Small and charming, with a view of the snow. Loved the feel of the hotel, old world and cosy. We had access to a comfortable lounge room as well. Wayne communicated well and we were able to store our bikes securely. The coffee and breakfast downstairs in the cafe were outstanding. We booked for one... More

Stayed for just the one night but really impressed. Basic, but clean and comfortable at a very reasonable price. The only negative for us was a noisy toilet cistern that ran through the night but after closing the toilet door all was fine. We had breakfast in the cafe in the morning and that too was very nice and well... More

We strayed in Bright Velo one night on the way to skiing. If was perfect place for the large group. I booked the place over the phone and got recommendations about the type of room to suit our group. The apartment is very clean, convenient, kitchen is nicely stocked, beds comfortable. We will stay in Velo Bright again. Anna

Susan's trophies on the shelf indicate this home away from home is what it claims to be, about Velo (bicycles), and not just wheeling them around! But the muffins are to go back for as well. Great place to get fit, eat well and be cared for in a truly homely cafe and talk about bikes and watch La Tour... More

Excellent accommodation run by legendary couple - look at the walls in the dining room, you'll know what I mean! Wonderful and nourishing breakfast. Clean and comfortable room. Very accommodating to our family. Convenient location in this beautiful town. Must cycle around in this town - highly recommended!

We love staying in the old section of Bright Velo and the cafe downstairs is excellent and great coffee. Its centrally located in the main street and an easy walk to the Brewery. Stayed there before, will stay there again!
