we had a group of us staying at Bright Velo for a cycling camp, the location of the place and friendliness of Wayne and Susan is certainly worth going back for. The rooms are basic but we spent our time riding or relaxing having coffee at Bright Velo, so we didn't need anything more than was offered. Have already booked... More

We loved our stay at Bright Velo. Firstly, Susan and Wayne are friendly, helpful and knowledgable. The hotel is a lovely old building, but our room was comfortable and perfect for our needs. The cafe has good coffee, tasty food and delightful decor. It is well situated and Bright offers cycling for all levels ( we particularly enjoy the flat... More

I stayed at Velo as a base for some final 3 Peaks training. The staff are all cyclists and very friendly. They not only were generous with their knowledge about cycling around Bright, Falls Creek, Hotham etc but were also helpful in introducing me to the other hotel guests who were doing some rides around the area. I stayed in... More

We were six keen riders in the High Country for a long weekend of riding staying at Bright Velo for a second year. Wayne and Susan are terrific hosts with great coffee (essential) and terrific breakfasts and snacks to 'fuel' the body for the big days of riding. The atmosphere is terrific particularly if you are into cycling and Wayne... More

I found myself in Bright after taking the route I hadn't intended. Bright Velo looked like a charismatic little place and after seeing it was top of the list on Trip Advisor, staying there was a no brainer. Susan and Wayne were fabulous hosts and exceeded my expectations in that capacity. The room was basic but very clean and had... More

We took a couple of VCAL Senior students on a trip to Bright in early Jan and stayed at Bright Velo. Comfortable, clean, and affordable, this was the perfect space to recover from a day of climbing Mt. Buffalow. Nice staff, and great vibe in cafe.

Bright Velo is the number one place to stay if you are on a bike holiday in Bright (and it's a great place to visit even if you are not on two wheels). Wayne and Susan are wonderful hosts. The atmosphere of the restaurant and courtyard is warm and friendly with an eclectic mix of cycling memorabilia. I have stayed... More
