Room super clean large and comfortable. I would go there again. Staff friendly we forgot a leather jacket and they rang our mobile about 20 minutes after we left so we were able to go back for it. I also left some cold water in the fridge which was put away for us as well. Up the road from town... More

There's a lot of choice for accommodation in Bright. This is priced at the high end but is showing its age. Old furnishings, saggy mattress, 70s bathroom and limited parking for the number of units. I would shop around more next time. Great location for walking to town and meals.

The light fittings and bathroom fixtures were dated - but it was clean, comfortable and I found the 'dated' style very quaint. Most importantly, the bed was very comfortable and it was a quiet...

Let me start off by saying that the price you pay for this accommodation is more than reasonable, hence this review will not be price dependent. What I like most about this place is the walking distance to the town centre, where you can find lots of nice eateries and even a decently sized Woolworth. The room is a good... More

The accommodation is close to main centre of bright. Everything within walking distance. Easy access to mount buffalo. It is clean, neat and tidy. Cheap accomodation for families. Pub down the road is great for kids. Free wifi a bonus.

A lovely place to stay for a long weekend. My room seemed like it had been recently done up and was clean and tidy. The location was perfcet to walk to all the cafes/restaurants. The owner was a friendly lady and I would certainly stay here again if I returned to Bright.

We stayed for one night last week and we had one of the newly renovated rooms (Number 1) which was lovely. Room is well appointed with a nice, clean bathroom. For coffee lovers, there is even an espresso machine in the room and 2 complimentary pods. Very nice place - quiet and relaxing. We will stay there again.
