We were made to feel super welcome here by Lyn and Russell, thankyou for your hospitality. The rooms were large and very clean and the tea and coffee was well stocked. This Motel is a short stroll from the centre. We hope to be back .

We had a lovely overnight stay at the Barrass's John Bright Motor Inn. We stayed in the Premium Executive Queen Room which was very modern and well appointed. We were pleasantly surprised. We do not generally like street rooms because of the road noise. This one however was in a quiet tree lined street with a great countryside feel. Town...

Have stayed here a few times, and I think it is the pick of the Bright accommodation places. This time I stayed upstairs, which was good, but not quite as good as the downstairs rooms on the front row which seem to be a lot more spacious. All rooms had the normal facilities, and all were clean and tidy, and...

The Motor Inn is tucked in amongst monstrous pine trees 3 minute walk from central Bright, wonderful location. The Inn has a well kept pool which is well utilised specially after spending the day sightseeing in extremely hot temperatures. There is also a...

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.

Perfectly located and really comfortable. Previous comments remarked on being a bit dated. We were in what I think previous reviews said was a 'dated' room. 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...

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.
