Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wow! Haven’t stayed in a newly built motel in years. Large, clean and comfortable rooms which are well equipped with a small kitchenette including, fridge, jug, toaster and coffee maker. We have booked a King room for $149 and would highly recommend this property for your stay in Bright.

First time in Bright and 3 nights stay at this lovely motel. Everything was beautifully appointed and bed was so comfortable. We made use of the very well equipped covered bbq area as it was raining our last 2 days. easy walk into town with plenty of choice for eateries. Staff were friendly and happy to help when needed. would certainly stay here in. the future.

We chose the king bedroom with outside spa. It was a late booking, acting on a recommendation from our son. From the first moment we arrived, we were impressed. It’s modern, clean, well laid out, well-equipped, secure, and beautifully appointed. It’s only 300m walk into the centre of Bright, to access cafes, restaurants, etc. the motel has a dedicated area for washing down your bike, and an air compressor for tyres! The staff are superbly friendly and professional. Our room was well-equipped, and crystal clean. It couldn’t be bettered. We enjoyed a spa each evening before dinner to cap off our busy days. We would highly recommend this motel, and will definitely plan to be back.

Bright Colonial Motel did it well in what seemed to be a totally renovated property. The rooms were smallish but comfortable, very clean and everything worked well. There was an excellent BBQ and communal area adjacent to the pool and the grounds were well maintained. This well above the average motel in Bright and other country towns, professionally run by friendly staff. It is a very short walk from the town.

First time staying here for quite some time everything looks and feels new. Bed is comfortable to sit on have not slept yet. Shower not as high pressure water as other motels in Bright. Other than that it feels and looks clean. I did not like the way I had to book in... But that's just me. It is still a well kept motel.

Had stayed here before through work, so we came back for a holiday. Great communication before arriving, and very personable staff on arrival. The outdoor kitchen and communal area is a fantastic place for families or people to meet and dine, or just laze around the pool. This area has a bbq and small pizza oven and inside is a stove and microwave. The motel is only about 500 metres from town and is very centrally located. The rooms are very clean and modern and I would highly recommend the Bright Colinal Motel

Lovely hotel and great communication! Before we arrived we were notified that there was a problem with the room we had booked and were offered alternative choices. We went with a courtyard spa room and were very glad we did! The outdoor space was great and the spa warm and relaxing! The room kitchen was great with crockery, kettle, toaster, fridge etc. The outdoor communal kitchen and bbq area looked great too and would have used it if we had stayed longer.

For traditionalists, this motel may not meet your expectations if you want to back the car up to the room door, expecting to share a common linear veranda. The room we booked had its own private courtyard garden and this was a great feature which allowed us to chill out with a cool drink on a perfect spring afternoon after check-in. The well laid out gardens were a bonus for the eyes and the room itself was very comfortable with everything we needed. This motel caters very well for the cycling tourist and had some unexpected features like the secure bike storage, wash-down and maintenance area. The other really good feature here is the shared cooking and eating area. It was central and had everything including the kitchen sink! The motel is obviously quite new and is a significant but welcome deviation from traditional American highway motel design. We really liked it and would stay again.
