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!

Our room was located in the old section of the hotel and it was so cosy, warm and very clean.... More

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

We stayed here overnight during a quick trip to Victoria. Wayne was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is great, and it is a terrific location. The room was clean, the bed comfy and the heater worked well. And the price is good.The only criticism I have is that the downstairs room we had was not very soundproofed on one side,... More

Located in the main street of Bright, with a cafe for coffees and breakfast was lovely, the accommodation was very clean and better than i expected for 3 star hotel, we stayed in a 2 bedroom suite, with 2 bathrooms, a kitchenette and lounge suite, there was plenty of hot water and heater worked well. Friendly atmosphere.
