This hotel is in a great location. It's a pleasant few minutes stroll along the river into town. We stayed in a room overlooking the river, which I'd recommend - with a tiny balcony that had a couple of chairs, it made for a lovely spot to sit in the sunshine and watch the river drift by. There were several... More

This place is a few minute's walk from the centre of town. It's quiet and overlooks the little stream and parkland out the back - very pleasant. The room was clean and the bed was firm. Overall, quite acceptable for a one night stay.

Good value for money. Great size, clean room. Short stroll from town centre, the man who greeted me on check in was friendly and again so when I left. Comfortable bed and fantastic water pressure in the shower. I would definitley reccomend this place to friends and family if they were staying in Bright. Nice views looking out into the... More

The owners of this tiny but well positioned motel have recently renovated and updated their rooms in black, white and grey. Practical furniture in black has been included. Loved the black blanket on bed offering a great alternative to the doona in warm weather. Toilet and shower recess small but sparkling clean. Could hear kookaburras singing and saw ducks with...

Ok. I booked late and this was all i could get. Theres nothing particularly wrong with this place except for insufficient parking, old dated rooms, that stupid soap dispenser thing instead of a bar of soap, a very firm bed, mouldy grout in the shower and a noisy air conditioner. The staff were friendly, the wifi was fast and free... More

The motel is inexpensive at $100 a night, and the owners are very helpful. The on site bulldog is the friendliest dog I have ever encountered - so cute. The room is totally a throwback to the sixties. Black and white floor tiles in the foyer, with a boxy air con device above the door. Room was clean, eventually warm,... More

OK, the good things. Reception staff were absolutely lovely, the hotel is in a convenient location, close to walks along the river, and close to town, and the room was clean with fresh linen. The room however needed renovating, had a very tired and plain bathroom and kitchenette, and was very cramped with unattractive décor. The heating was inadequate in... More

Someone recommended we stay at Riverbank Park motel. It was abysmal. We paid $110 for one night stay before we saw the room. It was terrible. We walked out and stayed at another place inn Myrtleford. Please be warned. .
