We found the accommodation to be well situated in the town, comfortable, and very clean. Tea and coffee making facilities available.. Single shower and toilet facilities are quite comfortable, and clean

Booked a room for myself and two others and on arrival told they were fully booked. Bright was close to being fully booked out and had to stay well out of town in a caravan park. Owner seemed to have no idea of how to use a booking system and had others complaining for the same reason.

We drove in, no one there. We don't usually stay in terraced motel units, but with no keys, we couldn't stay at all. We rang the number on the reception door, the owner was away, the assistant manager will help. We never saw this person. The owner had left the house unlocked, just go in. So we did. The b... More

We stayed in Late May, just missed the best of the Autumn leaves, but found the units adequate for our needs. Don't expect 5 or even 4 star, but they were clean and cosy, even though you are discouraged from leaving the heating on when going out in the evening? Self catering facilities are are well provisioned with full size... More

A large group of friends and babies stayed at carawatha gardens for the annual hot rod show that we visit every year and stayed at this extremely disappointing accommodation. We Booked out the main house, B&B and 3 units and also knew people staying in the remaining 2 units. We stayed here for 3 nights from Friday to Monday. First... More

The guest and I had words following complaints from another guest. The other guest's complaints included burning rags in the driveway, course language and extra person sleeping in the carport. My handling of this issue was probably not as good as it should have been but certainly did not warrant such a review. This was the weekend of the Bright... More

We stayed here (at the B&B accommodation) for 4 nights to use as a base for cycling and exploring around Bright. This was a bit of a last minute decision and most places seemed to be booked, so we took this when we came across it. Our overall view is that the location is great (about a 10 minute walk... More

My wife and I stayed in the B & B accommodation on our weekend trip to the alps. On arrival we were greeted by a room which had been pre-warmed and exactly what you wanted after a long day at the snow. The king size bed was very comfy!
