“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2011

Lovely motel situated about 1.5kms from the centre of Bright but off the highway so no road noise. Absolutely spotless and it is obvious that the owners take great pride in making guests comfortable with lots of little details. Spacious room, was an older style but recently renovated beautifully. Comfortable bed, 2 seater lounge, dining table, sink, kettle and toaster, heater or air con. Free Wifi connection (with a voucher obtained from reception). Bathroom small but functional (no bath only a shower) and again recently renovated. Would highly recommend if you do not need to be in the centre of town.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2011

This is a cute little Motel, rooms are spacious and clean as is the bathroom.
It is an old resort but well maintained. The pool is basic but inviting and the owners are welcoming. We had a room that had an adjoining door so we could hear all that was happening next door, so being sound proof is not a highlight.
It is a pleasant walk into town 10-15 min stroll and there is a great running/ bike track next to the hotel which goes for km's ( the next town actually ).
I would get breakfast in town as there are some great cafe's there and the breakfast provided is pretty disappointing.
For a last minute decision it provided us with what we needed. Would I stay again ? yes, it is a country town and it was nice.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2009

With all the resorts and apartment style accommodation everywhere, this reminded me of my childhood holidays, in a 70's style motel, car parked out the front with the pool in the middle of the complex.
This motel is on the edge of town, the rooms were basic, the pool was nice and we even used the tennis court. The restaurant was closed which was annoying, but all up for this type of motel, and the price, it was clean and fine with no nasty surprises.

A nice quiet motel with a lovely pool and surrounds. Take the walk into town for dinner and to unwind.
