We've previously stay here (and reviewed) Pioneer Cottages and having just spent another 4 days there with 20 cycling boys I'm delighted to say that it's just as good as we remembered. Neat clean well presented rooms, friendly staff and convenient location make this one of our favourite places.

Stayed here for 2 nights in April this year on our first visit to Bright. Quaint cottages, older but very comfortable and just a bit quirky :). Everything you need in the kitchen, comfy beds and plenty of hot water. Pleasant grounds to roam about, out of town enough to be peaceful but close enough to walk in easily. Welcoming...

My husband and I spent last weekend in Bright with son, daughter-In-law and grandson. Pioneer Cottages were very comfortable. We arrived very late after a long drive from Melbourne and we were delighted to find the heating on and a very cosy atmosphere. Jo couldn't do enough to make it a lovely weekend.

Jo & Gordon are the best hosts you can imagine, we have spent a week there for the past 3 years & will return. The cottages are set in natural setting on large area with BBQs. It is in a very quiet spot as the sports ground is next door. Bright is one of the most beautiful towns in Victoria

Spent a wonderful 4 nights with my wife, daughter and grand-daughter. Very clean and comfortable and very good hosts ... do anything for you. Nice gardens with excellent barbecues. Short walk to town centre with coffee shops, supermarket and pubs to explore, plenty of bike and walking trails close by and of course the incredibly beautiful scenery. Will definitely go...
