My wife and I stayed with another couple in the 2 renovated rooms, no.s 3 and 4, in the brief off-peak early June period (between the April Autumn Festival and the June long weekend). The rooms were spacious and fitted with luxury bathroom facilities. New owner Russel and his staff were unobtrusive and helpful with extra room inclusions at our... More

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.

Comfortable and spacious room in a quiet corner of Bright, It is in a good location for getting to the main street for taking local walks without itself being in the busy precinct. The room backed onto a fern garden which is all very pretty, but the ferns blocked a lot of light and the room lighting was not wonderful.... More

We had a standard room for a weekend stay, it was impeccably clean, comfortable and no road noise. Great location - walking distance to Woolworths and local pubs and restaurants. Owners were onsite and were very welcoming and helpful. We didn't use the free Wi-Fi or the pool. Absolutely would stay here again.

Stayed here three years ago. Liked the place for its location since it was quite central to everything so meaning you can leave the car there and walk around town. The room was clean and well kept. Quiet location. Reasonable price. Comfortable bed, plus a hot shower.

With our group we had 6 rooms booked. The location is so handy as you can walk to most spots around Bright including a few of the walking trails. The rooms are very clean and well looked after but don't expect 'city modern'. That said, you have most of what you need for a weekend, or a bit more of... More

We stayed here comfortably for 6 nights. Perfect location - right in town. The spa was the highlight. It was nice to have a balcony too - a quiet place to sit away from the busyness. Great service too. Having wifi was great (and a fairly good connection too!)

We rang whilst on the road to the World Super Bike races at Phillip Island. The owner sorted out an option with two rooms that suited us perfectly. The motel is a short stroll to the centre of town with a popular option for meals being rhe hotel bistro. Arriving on a day with temperatures over 40, chilled bottles of... More
