We found a very pleasant country motel with a garden outlook that very accessible. The motel is close to both the town centre and the Ovens River which offers some great easy walking tracks along the river banks. The town centre had plenty of good eating and drinking places.

If visiting Bright I would recommend staying at Bright Colonial Inn. The rooms are comfortable in particular the bed. There is a pool and a large cooking area with several large picnic tables - all undercover. So you can really cater for yourself. The rooms have microwave, fridge and they actually give you fresh milk to have tea and coffee.

We were walk-ins and were made to feel very welcome. The motel is a traditional roadside motel. Room was clean and comfortable with everything one needs for an overnight stay. It is close to town and riverside tracks if you want to walk either. Bright is a beautiful little town and the "bubbling Brook" river is a star feature with...

I stayed here for an overnight stop and arrived at dusk and left relatively early. The room was spacious well equipped and clean. The kitchenette was nicely done. It was cold outside so I appreciated the reverse cycle aircon. There was also a convection heater for supplementary heating or simply to avoid the fan noise of the reverse cycle unit....

Usually we stay in Mt Beauty, however this trip we decided to stay in Bright, allowing us easy access to both Falls Creek and Mt Hotham. The motel is a cut above most high country motels and we enjoyed our stay in a clean, spacious and warm room. Definitely on the list to rebook!

We stayed here one night last weekend and the staff was very friendly and hotel is clean and tidy. It couldndo with a bit of an update but it had all you needed. Big room, efficient heating and very clean. Would go here again.
