It's been 5 years since we were last here and while it was great then, it's even better now! The rooms have been nicely updated and they now offer in-room dining... a pleasant surprise and very reasonable! Upstairs rooms facing the Ovens River are the pick offering a small balcony with table and chairs where you can sit and overlook... More

I stayed in an upper floor room overlooking the river. Sitting on the balcony enjoying the peace and quiet was terrific. The room itself was spacious, comfortable and clean. A great nights sleep was had in a comfortable bed and the balcony door left open to have that nice fresh night air come in. Yes it looks a little tired... More

Old style facade from outside but nicely done up rooms inside. It does have upstairs and downstairs so choose wisely which level you prefer. One with the river views or just on night stay that wouldn't matter too much. Recommended if you prefer well priced place to stay with out too much luxury. You can walk to the local pub... More

Fantastic little place to stay for a weekend or longer, granted the rooms are dated and could use some renavation and a tidy up but the hosts were just the loveliest hoteliers we have stayed with in bright to date. Nothing was too much trouble, they truly were amazing to stay with. We will be back next year and the... More

Travelled through bright on my way to phillip island for the motogp. The roads around this area are a stunning treat for motorcyclists, a challenge at pace, or simply breathtaking for the sightseers. My room at this hotel was in the corner of the complex, which meant i had to use the second car park for our motorcycles. This put... More

I'm a cyclist doing the Rail Trail and I left my phone in my room at the Riverbank Park Motel. It was delivered to my next motel in Beechworth 50-60ks away. I would like to thank Steven for his outstanding service. I would like to recommend the motel as it is centrally located and appropriately and competitively priced. Very well... More

Great location right on the river front. Rooms very comfortable and the staff are amazing, could not be more helpful or accommodating. This was our 4 th visit there and still love the place as much as the first time. We go there every year with about 20 other to play golf. The location to the town is a short... More

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...
