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. Would... More

The line between welcoming and overbearing isn't that fine. There is a huge difference between having a nice, quiet, private weekend away and feeling like you're at a teenage sleep over with a nosy, interfering father. The apartment itself was lovely and the grounds were beautiful. The cottages were close to town and located in a quiet pocket backed by... More

We stayed here via a personal recommendation and so glad we did! It is close to the town which can be taken by a wonderful riverside pathway and the walk is only about 15 minutes at a slow pace and provides such a relaxing experience as you wander along a leafy pathway with the sound of water beside you. The... More

We have just returned from a weekend in Bright with friends, and most of our group stayed at Merrimeet. For some it was a return visit, but it was our first time staying there. The property is quite lovely- the main house, the apartments & cottages and the beautiful gardens, and really well situated, right beside the river a short... More

We just spent two glorious nights in Lychgate Cottage. The location right on the river, surrounded by the lovely, secluded gardens with a flowing fountain is so peaceful. Stroll the river or sit and listen to the river flow. We grilled both nights and used the wonderful spa both nights as well. As the evenings were chilly we availed ourselves... More

We were travelling with a small group of photographers and stayed at Merrimeet Cottages. The sole travellers all stayed at the "apartments" while my wife and I stayed in the "River Flat" a few doors up the road. The reports from our friends rated these apartments very highly, with plenty of luxury appointments and views over the gardens. The River... More

The accommodation was part of a 3 day Autumn Photography tour and I stayed in the Middle Cottage. The cottage is large, very clean and comfortable with a spa, reverse cycle air conditioning and wood burning heater. Situated next to the Ovens river and a short walk along the river path to the town centre, the Tudor house and cottages... More
