Bright Velo is Australia's first dedicated bike hotel.
Run by cyclists for cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts, Bright Velo is the place to stay when you visit Bright.
Choose a room in the old guest house, a motel room or a two-bedroom unit. Locked bike storage, bike racks, air and water are all on hand for you. As is Cafe Velo - a European-inspired fully licensed retro bike cafe where you'll find yummy food and delicious hand-roasted Padre Coffee along with local and imported wines, and a good range of beer and cider.
While in Bright, why not unleash your inner cyclist! Ask about guided rides with former Australian Road Champion Wayne. He has some great stories to share and you'll love the tips you get on the ride.
Bright has some of the best road rides in the country with Mt Buffalo, Falls Creek and Mt Hotham to challenge you and the 250km Big Loop delivering one of the most formidable rides in the world. In Winter, the locals get out their mountain bikes and ride the brilliant tracks and fire trails.
We have partnered with Indian Tandoori Restaurant to bring you authentic Indian food. Our chefs are from the Punjab region - one of India's coolest kitchens. You will love their delicious aromatic dishes and freshly made naan breads and other delights from the Tandoor. The restaurant is open every night from 5:30pm until 10pm. If you're planning to stay with us, and expect to arrive late, we can arrange for a takeaway dinner for you. Just call us before 8:30pm - 03 57551019.
We value clean air and there is no smoking allowed anywhere on the property, inside or out.
You'll find us right in the centre of Bright near the top roundabout in Ireland Street. Bright Velo comprises the old Oriental hotel on Ireland St and Cafe Velo at the rear. So ride in and park your bike. There's a warm welcome waiting for you here.
See you soon,
Wayne Hildred & Susan Charlton
