We had a spa room and our small balcony overlooked the crochet grounds providing morning entertainment. The motel , although a bit dated, was clean and warm, and had facilities to make breakfast although the microwave was downstairs in the laundry. The position was perfect being only about 100 metres from the center of town.

Had to travel during school holidays, which to me, is painful. Booked a renovated room here again which I was told was the only one left on the night. $190 is not cheap for a country albeit, popular town. Dirty coffee mug and wine glasses otherwise it was fine. The owner told me there was a problem with the cleaning...

We stayed here in April 2017 for two nights. We couldn't believe how close it was into town, only minutes to walk, you won't need to drive. We stayed in room 4 and was pleasantly surprised upon entering the newly refurbished room, beautiful decor, lovely bathroom, plus the most amazing comfortable bed we have ever slept in and we have...

Good motel almost in centre of Bright. Advertised as extremely well appointed but this is perhaps a work in progress. Room we had was a little tired but otherwise very clean and tidy. Cooked brekky would have been nice but apparently not available.

We arrived at the motel about 1.30p.m. and found a notice on the door that there was nobody to check us in until...

There is nothing I could complain about. Spotlessly clean, spacious with modern decor and well set out. Only a 2 minute walk to Main Street with all restaurants and shops. Pool and good barbecue facilities provided.

Continental breakfast can be bought for 8AUS dollars which is delivered to your room the previous evening. Sat outside in the evening in the relaxing clean gardens where...

Upon arrival we were dismayed to find that our travel agent had booked an upstairs room as my partner has difficulty climbing stairs. When the owner saw our consternation he immediately offered us a down stairs rooms and even though it wasn't the executive suite we had paid for it was a nice airy room. As we're both smokers (shock...

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 .
