“Yummy” breakfasts. “Neat-as-a-pin” rooms. “Immaculate” gardens. “Fabulously friendly, helpful hosts” that “words can’t describe”.  These are just some of the very kind comments from our visitors to Oven Valley Motor Inn.

The Ovens Valley Motor Inn has been listed in the RACV’s ‘Top 101 Best Places To Stay in Victoria’.  The competition ran for several months on the back of a promotional campaign that asked Victorians to list their favourite accommodation and why, and concluded in early October 2009.

By the end of the competition, the Ovens Valley Motor Inn had received 83 glowing comments from guests, which included the following contributions:

Charles and Heather Young, Adelaide, SA

 Congratulations upon a thoroughly professional presentation from every view point including decor, attention to detail relating to guest comfort and welcome home feeling.

Nicest motel I have ever been in. Lovely big rooms, very clean. Nice and war. Comfy beds. No complaints whatsoever. Thank you for your hospitality.

Don & Pat Gill, Coffs Harbour

 We would like to congratulate you on this top class motel. There was not one aspect of the motel that was not top class. Lovely decor, clean rooms and a nice new bathroom. Everything was great especially the food – first class. Thank you Simeon and Shannon, we will recommend your motel to our friends.


Jessie Mackenzie, Minyip, VIC

Everything was beautiful and clean, which means a lot to us. Great value for money. Will recommend to friends and hopefully we will be back soon too! Thank you.

 Not a problem. I had a wonderful weekend in Bright for the Audax Alpine Classic 2009. The whole town was so welcoming, and it was a great weekend for riding. I have never experienced a town being so engaged with an event like this before, it is a real credit to all of you.

 Looking forward to next year.

Don White, Eltham, VIC

We were just checking out motels in Bright and Shannon’s pleasant approach and price convinced us to stay. This is an excellent 3.5 star motel, particularly when I compare against others. Shannon took time to make you feel at home and was most helpful in advising us on must see attractions. All other staff were helpful and friendly.

Simon & Bianca, Wagga Wagga, NSW

An unforgettable weekend. Bright – breathtaking. Breakfast – very yummy! Gardens and grounds – immaculate! Rooms – neat as a pin! Hosts – words can’t describe! Their hospitality and attention to detail was beyond any of our expectations. Keep up the great work Shan + Sim – we’ll definitely be back again and again and again… see you again soon!

Shane Stevanovich, Elsternwick, VIC

A great little place to stay. Clean and comfortable a short drive or walk from town and other major attractions, Mt Hotham, Mt Buffalo, Bright town centre and the list goes on. Really enjoyed our stay there and the family who run the accommodation also live there and are very polite and helpful beyond point of call.

Raelene Hewitt, Bright

Hi Shannon and Sim, I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you both for all the effort you put into the Kinder fundraiser last night.. It was by far the best ever. You guys did a great job .. so did Emma, yum! Thanks again. Rae Hewitt x

John & Jenny Kisler, Melbourne, VIC

Lovely accommodation & friendly hosts. We will be back again. Had a great time!

Adrian & Lorraine, VIC

What a fantastic place we were made more than welcome almost like family a very refreshing standard of service getting back to good old time values, just what is required when getting away for a recharge, keep up the good work.

Jim Hahn, Sydney, NSW

 We had a very nice stay at the Motel with our club and were treated like old friends and not customers. We highly recommend the Ovens Valley Motel to anyone who goes to Bright to enjoy the wonderful things to do around the area.

Christine Williams, VIC

Just like being at home, only it’s more comfortable, tidier, the food is better and there is a distinct lack of disrespectful teenagers. On second thoughts it’s nothing like home, thats why we love it so much.

Leanne and David Quayle, Rivett, ACT

This beautiful place to stay is a credit to hosts, Shannon and Simeon. They run a clean, friendly and value for money motel in a picturesque location. Our family with 3 young children is very well-catered for in comfortable rooms with all we could need. The kids love the swimming pool and tennis court, we love the views and proximity to the snow and walking/riding trails. We love having our holidays here.

Ross Clay, Illawong, NSW

I arranged a trip for our Moovers & Groovers group in 2008 and we all had a wonderful time. The organisation, food and accommodation were excellent and provided a great foundation for our holiday. However, the warm and friendly atmosphere created by our hosts Shannon and Simeon made it a place that you always want to go back too. So by popular demand our group has booked again for 2010. What more needs to be said!!!!

Wendy Hollonds, Ferntree Gully, VIC

My son and I stay at the Ovens Valley every January. We love it. The hotel caters for all of our needs and it is beautiful as well. All staff are friendly, delightful and helpful. My son loves it so much that he wants to move in permanently. Thank you for always making our trip fantastic. See you next January.

Karen, VIC

 We found the Ovens Valley Motor Inn to be a cosy place to stay during winter! The room was clean, spacious and well heated. Breakfast always arrived on time and was beautifully presented. The Motel itself is in a quiet and beautiful location – an ideal escape when on holidays.

Nola Bau, Lilydale, VIC

A nice, friendly, clean and affordable motel that is so convenient to everything. My husband and I were the envy of our camping friends when they saw all the amenities the motel has to offer.

Raymond Waymouth, North Melbourne, VIC

I’ve stayed at the Ovens Valley Motor Inn a few times over the last year while learning to paraglide in Bright. Stunning views from the inn, close to town and the rooms are clean and quite large. I will definitely be staying there again.

Karl & Michelle Scorer, Ferntree Gully, VIC

Ovens Valley is one of the most comfortable places to stay for a getaway. Fabulous staff, clean rooms, comfy bed all the facilities you could ask for. Nothing is too much trouble, great service. Highly recommended for holidays, close to town and restaurants.

Steve & Deb, NSW

We wanted a clean & comfortable motel to stay at for a few days of touring around the alpine area. The facilities were as advertised, and the location of the motel ensured a peaceful stay. The hosts were pleasant, friendly and welcoming. A genuine manner of approach and very helpful with current and local information.

The alpine area is wonderful at any time of year, so many things you can do, and so many places that just deserve to be enjoyed. Our trip used this motel as a base, and we are so pleased that we made that choice. It lived up to the description in the accommodation guide, and the hosts gave it that extra zing which just made our trip that much better.

Would we recommend this motel ? YES, OF COURSE WE WOULD!

Shane Edwards, Malsbury, VIC

Our first stay was last year when my family attended the Alpine Audax in January. The owners were very warm and happy to help us in any way. Our Son loved the pool, while the room was spotless. We have booked in for an extra day next year in which we cannot wait.

Steven and Vicki, Melbourne, VIC

A lovely stay! Comfortable & clean with friendly staff. We love the pool & spa after a long drive from Melb. Also, for a photo-holic like my hubby, a picture in the driveway with the mountains in the background is a regular event!
