Ovens Valley Motor Inn
Ranked #4 of 13 Hotels in Bright
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 March 2012

I used Trip Advisor to book Motels on our recent trip through Victoria & I must say all the great reviews have been spot on. The Ovens Valley Motor Inn is a credit to the owners. Very clean, comfortable rooms with heaps of space. It was great to have a little kitchenette with toaster in the room so we were able to get our own breakfast. The laundry facilities were handy and even a clothes line to hang washing, great not to have to use a dryer!!!
I thoroughly recommend this motel to any traveller. Country Hospitality at it's best!!

Stayed: March 2012

My husband and I toured around Victoria in January and after a fantastic drive along the Great Alpine Highway from Lakes Entrance we decided to take a break in Bright. We went to the tourist information office in the town and received a great welcome and lots of help. They booked us into the Ovens Valley Motel. It was a very nice place, the staff were polite and helpfull, the room was spotless and the bed comfortable. At $112 per night it was good value for money. The pool was spotless and very welcoming.

Lovely motel situated about 1.5kms from the centre of Bright but off the highway so no road noise. Absolutely spotless and it is obvious that the owners take great pride in making guests comfortable with lots of little details. Spacious room, was an older style but recently renovated beautifully. Comfortable bed, 2 seater lounge, dining table, sink, kettle and toaster, heater or air con. Free Wifi connection (with a voucher obtained from reception). Bathroom small but functional (no bath only a shower) and again recently renovated. Would highly recommend if you do not need to be in the centre of town.

This is a cute little Motel, rooms are spacious and clean as is the bathroom.
It is an old resort but well maintained. The pool is basic but inviting and the owners are welcoming. We had a room that had an adjoining door so we could hear all that was happening next door, so being sound proof is not a highlight.
It is a pleasant walk into town 10-15 min stroll and there is a great running/ bike track next to the hotel which goes for km's ( the next town actually ).
I would get breakfast in town as there are some great cafe's there and the breakfast provided is pretty disappointing.
For a last minute decision it provided us with what we needed. Would I stay again ? yes, it is a country town and it was nice.

With all the resorts and apartment style accommodation everywhere, this reminded me of my childhood holidays, in a 70's style motel, car parked out the front with the pool in the middle of the complex.
This motel is on the edge of town, the rooms were basic, the pool was nice and we even used the tennis court. The restaurant was closed which was annoying, but all up for this type of motel, and the price, it was clean and fine with no nasty surprises.

A nice quiet motel with a lovely pool and surrounds. Take the walk into town for dinner and to unwind.
