Hospitality, cleanliness, convenience, comfort and scenery all excellent. It is a great place for some R and R. We were fortunate to receive an upgrade and spent two very comfortable nights in The Cottage. Plenty to see and do, already planning a date for our return visit.

I stayed at this motel in Bright in the past week. It was good value but in onbvious need of a makeover and update. I found it to be clean and on lovely grounds a little way out of town, however, this suited me as I didn't want to be right in the middle of town. The Bright area is...

The rooms may be a bit dark and drab, but we certainly received a warm and friendly welcome, and the staff went out of their way to be helpful during our stay. The setting, on the western outskirts of Bright, is attractive, with easy access to a walkway along the river to the town centre. The rooms themselves are a...

Not sure why there is so many negative comments about this place! It is a "Motor Inn", so prepare for nothing fancy and what do you expect with the price! I stayed over Easter and it averaged $150 a night and we were able to bring our dog and have him inside (if you have large active dogs I wouldn't...

As many of the other reviewers mention, this place is lacking a bit of the creature comforts and was a little drab. I cannot knock the fact the room was spacious, clean and functional. It's a great location for exploring Bright and the surrounding areas. It was an extremely dark room (and several bulbs were out) so it wasn't necessarily...

Room was spacious although showing its age. Housekeeping really non existent if staying for 2 nights. No service from reception and they seem not to know what is going in. Grounds are mud or dust. Beds were comfortable but lighting dull. Would questions warmth in mid winter.

The room was a large, very clean, with Queen Bed and had electric blanket, we had a great night’s sleep. There was no microwave in our room, but BBQ facilities and a pool, which would be great if you were staying with children. Wifi available, good location, we found it to be quiet with no noise, large grounds plenty of...

My stay was just a one night stop over. So with late check in and early checkout with online booking, I didnt get much experience from this motel. It was Clean and the managers were friendly. The price matched stop over requirement.

Stayed for 3 nights. Nice location but like most places in country Victoria it is in serious need of a complete refurbishment. We understand the economics of this but at the same time when you pay $185 per night (we were charged $190 and have contacted them twice (phone and email) with no acknowledgement or refund) you expect it to...
