Our stay at this motel was utterly disappointing. I will start with the bathroom. To say it is in serious need of a makeover would be an understatement. The bathroom was dank. Firstly it stunk of mold and urine. The pipe to the toilet were moldy and rusted. The paint on the walls was peeling and falling off. The tiles... More

This motel is neat, clean and adequate for a quick stay en route to the Victorian Alps. The owners were very accommodating when we were arriving a little late. Price is relatively cheap and it is a nice place to stay. One little incident was the electric blanket must had a few loose wires poking through the bed because when... More

The motel is well located next to the riverbank and there is parking in front of the room for your convenience. The triple room we stayed in was neat and tidy and had a queen, 2 singles and a sofa bed. The room was quite spacious and neatly arranged and the bathroom was very clean as well. We asked for...

My husband and I stayed at the Riverbank Hotel for one night while traveling. The proprietor was friendly. The bathroom had been updated and was quite nice and the room had all the necessary amenities such as hair dryer, coffeemaker, small refrigerator. The back of the hotel is on the river and the view is beautiful. It is quite close... More

We had a family room, it was very tired and grubby, cobwebs, dirty windows etc. the motel had a restaurant but we did not try it. The owners where very good supplying the extras we needed in the room such as crockery and cutlery so that we could have toast, cereals etc for breakfast. It is right on the riverbank... More

We took and early autumn stay for 3 nights at this motel, and we were ready for the usual Motel experience, so there were no surprises when we drove up, and also when we entered the room. Then we noticed the view from the 1st level room window and door...fantastic little spot right on the river, with a balcony view... More

friendly welcome. Bit of a walk to the city. rooms are small and dirty looking with stains on the bedspread and wearing carpet.Bed was not very comfortable. instead of toiletries there was a squeeze bottle of all purpose washing soap. I find this cheap and unappealing. I think you could do better in Bright. Price reflected the quality. Around $115... More

We have stayed at this Motel several times and have always been treated exceptionally well. The view from the front rooms is nothing but amazing. You look onto the river with the rolling hills in the background. A walking track is right at your front door to take you along the river bank into the town area. The rooms have... More

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
