Great location in Bright, easy to find and close to town centre. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Very friendly and accommodating staff made for a hassle free stay. Can be a little noisy with other guests arriving late and leaving early for the snow.

Staff were very accommodating and helpful. Very clean and tidy. Had everything we needed for a quick overnighter. Would to come back and stay longer next time. Healthy focus was a big draw card for us, sometimes it is hard to get good nutritious food and health focused environment when you are away from home.

I basically booked here because it was the cheapest place I could find for a 1 night stay, and since I was leaving for the snowfields early next morning didn't care about the quality too much. But I was very pleasantly surprised. Right in the middle of town, the main building, which includes a cafe, is a nicely renovated 19th... More

Only stayed the one night but was very comfortable and tidy. The rooms had everything we needed. Top location and staff were friendly. Will look to stay at Velo again next time in Bright and will have to try out the cafe too.

We have now stayed here on a couple of occasions and found the rooms to be very clean and comfortable with great breakfast and lovely hosts (Susan and Wayne). Great location in Main Street so you can stroll around town and enjoy the ambience of Bright. Lovely spot in every season and we have stayed in many of the motels... More

We stayed at Velo overnight during a great ski season. The staff made our stay and connection seamless despite the fact that we came in late and left early. We never met them in person but their preparation and attention to detail was second to none. Very comfortable room in the heritage section with very clean and comfortable facilities of... More

I stayed here on the way to the snow, arriving late and leaving early. The room represented good value for what was needed -$99 for somewhere to sleep - and the owners made the late arrival and early departure very easy. I stayed in a motel room which was fine although I did note there was no heater in the... More

Stayed here en route to skiing, and it was excellent value. The heritage room was not huge, but the bed was comfortable. The room was simple but was all we needed and was clean and warm enough. Breakfast at cafe velo was very good and the coffee was fantastic. I'd consider coming back in summer and staying for a couple... More

Lovely stay, was only a quick one nighter on the way to the snow but would definitely choose to stay again. Comfortable cozy warm clean room. Actually chose the "so small its hard to swing a cat" room from very honest description on the internet (because it was the cheapest room available) but think I got an upgrade to a... More

We only stayed here for 2 nights but this place is now our first choice for accommodation in Bright. The rooms are large and bright and clean with all amenities you could ask for. Perfect for our family of 3 kids. The host was very friendly and hospitable.
