My partner and i stayed in the 'Middle Cottage' for two nights. We had a fabulous, relaxing stay. We anticipated gloomy, rainy weather but this didn't impact our stay at all. We woke up to the lovely sound of water moving down the river and went to bed with the wood fire burning. All staff were extremely friendly and accommodating.... More

We enjoyed a lovely weekend away in Bright, staying at Merrimeet Cottages in the Riverdeck cottage. The cottage itself was lovely with some great views. The amenities were good, with a TV, DVD player, fireplace, spa bath and everything was fully self contained. The host was welcoming and friendly and showed us around the property and gave us a few...

We had booked a room with a spa at this hotel. The booking was made well in advance, so the reception we got on arrival was pretty surprising. On arrival we were told that there wasn't a spa room available as there were none clean. We asked if it would be possible to have a room cleaned for us and... More

We stayed at Merrimeet just after the full flush of autumn colour but the garden was still glorious, and in fact would be lovely at any time of year. Our middle 'riverside' (not quite) cottage was delightful: simply and tastefully decorated (thank heavens no tizziness, frills or florals), with lovely artistic touches such as the mosaic plant stands; good heaters,...

We had a lovely stay at Merrimeet. We stayed in the Stonewall Cottage. Beautiful gardens and lovely hosts. A great location only a short walk into town centre along the river. We hope to be back one day soon. Thanks Phillip and Lindsay for your hospitality.

Last eeek, my wife and I had one of our best holidays in our life time in Bright and Philip and Lesley were our hosts at Merrimeet Cottages. We stayed at Mews which was a wonderful country cottage. We are leaving for Turkey in 2 weeks time after my 3 year diplomatic post in Melbourne and we believe this was... More

We, a family of 5 with 3 children stayed in the 2 bedroom Stonewall cottage for 4 nights during autumn in April. The Merrimeet cottages are located in very quiet street and yet just a short walk (10 mins) along the Ovens River to the town centre. It is so close to the river bank that once you step out... More

We stayed here in January for a wedding. Our hosts were lovely and so accommodating of our need to arrive much later than planned due to a medical issue requiring an afternoon in the hospital. The setting is quiet and beautiful. Cottage was comfortable and we definitely appreciated the great working air conditioner in the heat! We did hear footsteps... More

We stayed here for a few nights last week. It was by far the best accommodation I have ever chosen to stay at in Bright. The setting is lovely. As are the hosts. It's quiet. And just a beautiful walk alongside the river to town. The accommodation was comfortable and well equipped.

We stayed at Riverdeck Cottage which overlooks the Ovens River. Accommodation was a delight, well maintained and had everything you would need for a short break. Location was fantastic as it was within walking distance of the Bright township or close to a beautiful river stroll. Host was helpful and well organised in regard to booking, arrival and departure.
