We stayed one night en route to Mt Hotham in August 2016. Our room was comfortable but not large situated in the old pub section up the stairs from the Main Street entrance. Breakfast was tasty and filling. The friendly atmosphere of Velo and its cycling memorabilia makes this accommodation one which I look forward to coming back to each... More

We really appreciated having the heater already on in the room when we arrived at this cheery hotel on a very cold winter day. The staff were very friendly & the location of the hotel right in the centre of town was really convenient. The room had plenty of space for an overnight stay and was very comfortable. The breakfast... More

Have been staying here several times over three years now. Friendly hosts, lovely fresh breakfast food and extensive menu to choose from in the cafe. Rooms are clean and warm the heritage rooms have nice charm. Right in Bright, quiet away from the through traffic and there are lots of places within 102 minutes walk for dinner.

Myself and four friends stayed at Bright Velo for the weekend in the self-contained apartment over winter. We regularly visit Bright and this was the first time we stayed at Bright Velo. It was perfectly located on one of the main roads with walking access to everything (pub/brewery :) Accommodation epitomized everything we love about Bright: Relaxed, friendly atmosphere and...

The menu was surprisingly varied and reasonably priced. We went during winter, when it was down to just the main bar open but we had a lovely meal and chatted to friendly locals. They had dishes such as charcuterie plate, goat curry, vegetarian enchilada, roast of the day and pizzas. Great choices.

Shabby chic, friendly hotel. The guys that run this place really do make you feel welcome. Sitting in the cafe and just observing, makes you realise how well loved they are in the community. The cafe is full of cycling memorabilia. The food on offer is yummy, home cooked and authentic. My room may have looked a bit dated but... More
