Just came back from a 2 day stay at Merrimeet Cottages. We were in the Stonewall cottage & we were very impressed with the large bedrooms & bathroom, the gardens are breathtaking. It was lovely to be able to make a cup of tea when we arrived as tea & coffee was provided as well as fresh milk in the... More

These cottages were outstanding. I thought I was back in England. The main house is like a manor house and the cottages are set in a garden of trees. They are well equipped and have a spa bath. The grounds are magnificent with all the native birds coming to visit. There is a gate that leads down to the river.... More

excellent accomodation near to the centre of Bright, large unit with good kitchen facilities. Spa for two. Parking is a little tricky through narrow gates, but rooms are very private. Back gate opens to the Ovens river.

We booked a two-bedroom apartment for 3 people and were pleased to be offered "The Muse" which is a large and very comfortable upstairs apartment with two double-bedrooms, spa, open fire in the lounge room etc. Unfortunately our single lady companion had to cancel and when we advised that there would now be a couple occupying the second bedroom, Phillip...

We have just had the most amazing weekend away at Merrimeet Cottages. We spent one day at the snow and the other exploring Bright and all it has to offer. We stayed in the most lovely cottage with a wood fire and it was perfect. The host Phil was so kind to ring prior and even put the heater on... More

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,...
