3 mates and I stayed here one night on a mountain bike road trip through the Vic High Country. Great place to stay. We could have settled in easily for a few more days and were sad to leave so soon. Great for bike riders, central location, close to trials and even closer to the Brewery !! Highly recommended.

It's quirky, and I wouldn't say it's five stars - it's not. but who needs an extra star when the staff go so far overboard to make you feel welcome and comfortable And the cafe - try their gluten free muffins. VERY "more-ish" it's a bit off the main road which makes it much quieter than other places I've stayed... More

We stayed here for a cycling event.My husband and I had a motel room and our friends had one of the heritage rooms.Our room was cosy with a comfortable bed. There was a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities, but no toaster or micro-wave. The air-conditioner was very efficient. Our friends had a small,older room. We really enjoyed the central location... More

We really enjoyed our night here. Charming property and very friendly and helpful service. Great central location. Enjoyed an afternoon drink in the lovely outside dining area when we arrived and were there again for a great breakfast in the morning.

Some friends and I stayed at Bright Velo for one night, but after seeing the place and meeting the staff we wanted to stay for longer. I really enjoyed the bicycle/Tour de France theme and the cafe had great coffee and food. It was also walking distance from the heart of the town which was convenient. I'd definitely recommend this... More

I arrived at Bright Velo with a sore back, looking for a ground floor room. Not only was Susan really helpful and efficient but the room was also lovely. The cafe made for an excellent place to read with shade and excellent fresh food. I would recommend the coconut rice for breakfast! Service was excellent with always time for a... More

Yes, I would! I was very happy with my stay over the Xmas Period. I stayed in one of the Heritage rooms, which I found very clean, tidy and Comfortable. It was a bit small, and a couple might find it a bit too small, but for a single it was fine. It could have done with a fridge, and... More

My stay at Velo was absolutely great. The rooms are well maintained throughout, there is plenty of space for families and "Cafe Velo" does exceptionally good food and coffee, with welcoming staff to boot!

We didn't expect much but to be honest we were a bit disappointed with the apartment. There was no stove at all in the kitchen, just a microwave and a toaster, so we had to eat out every day. We stayed there a week and the house service came once just to bring towels (we told them we needed bed... More

My cycling friends and I trained for months to take on the mountains in the Victorian Alps. Bright was the perfect base to undertake this task, and the Velo hotel was the obvious choice for our accommodation. Wayne and Susan were so helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about all aspects of the rides, and they would always personally inquire about how... More
