service is great, rooms are nice, some could use an update in decor. Overall clean and tidy. Will be back again. Pool was under utilised however that was due to bad weather. Great location, close to everything! Didn't need car for most of holiday.

We stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms and enjoyed the modern finishes, the fresh clean smell and the comfortable bed. This motel is situated close to the main shopping centre of Bright and provides easy access to the many delights of this area- bike riding, walking tracks, picnic areas, restaurants, cafes and shops.

This motel is very well fitted out, and despite being near the centre of Bright (2mins walk) we found it nice and quiet - thankfully the neighbours were good as the walls are not the thickest. We had a 'deluxe' room, which is worthy of the name. There is a small pool which looked inviting. Friendly service, helped us get... More

We booked in at the last moment. Service was excellent. There were 2 couples- 1 had one of the newer rooms, we had the older one. We were happy with the older one. It was clean and comfortable. The location was perfect- pubs and shops just around the corner.

Two problems, it advertises free Wi-Fi but after 7.30pm there appeared to be problems with Wi-Fi. After advising management of... More

With a planned visit for 5 adults midweek last week we booked 2 rooms, one that had been renovated and an unrenovated family room. Yes the unrenovated room is dated, but CLEAN. The TV in the second bedroom was appreciated, and the beds comfortable. Located very close to the centre of town, the proprietors have plans to renovate the whole... More

The location is good, but the price is above what you get. In the afternoon there was a group of guys drinking at the parking lot making a lot of noise, it was not late but anyway the managers should asked them to quiet a bit. Also when asking for a place to have dinner the guy at the front... More
