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!

We stayed in one of the rooms in the old part of the building and found it to be cosy and inviting. The rooms rates were exceptional and the coffee and food spot on. I liked the vibe of this place and the host Wayne was great. Walk out the door and you're on the main street and less than... More

A great hotel right in the heart of town and within easy walking distance to everything. To top it off even better if you are a cyclist. Very reasonable rates, clean warm rooms, fantastic café and hospitality second to none. Will definitely be returning for more riding in the mountains and of course the charming hotel.

My partner and I were in Bright for four days as a base for cycling so Bright Velo was the obvious choice for breakfast each morning! Wayne and Susan greeted us with smiles and consistently good coffee each day. If you're into cycling you'll especially enjoy all the cycling memorabilia, from the jerseys hung across the ceiling to mimic the... More

Stayed for one night April 2015 during the Bright Autumn Festival up on a photgraphy assignment. I found both the value and location terrific, being right in the centre of town which - during a major festival - was pretty amazing given I booked at very short notice. The room was comfortable and well heated (a necessity up there in... More
