We liked the location, the cleanliness, the gardens. Centrally located and lovely building.
Didn't like the spa bath. I don't use them and find them difficult to get in and out of.
I just loved the gardens and even tho there are other rooms you wouldn't know, it was a very peaceful stay an will definitely be going back
Beautiful gardens Setting near the river Comfortable units Easy 10 minute walk into centre of town
Shower in spa
Only 5 minutes walk to town with lots of lovely amenities and places to eat.
The location and the garden surrounding was great
Queen bed was of poor quality, you could feel the springs
Cottage was nicely decorated. Location and gardens were beautiful. Easy walk into town
The location on the river is excellent. The unit was well appointed, comfortable and private enough. The grounds were great for a stroll or just to sit and chill out. Close to the town center so a very short walk to some great hotels and eating venues.
There was nothing about this visit that we did not like.
Very friendly staff Cozy and clean cottage Fireplace with plenty of wood
Location: Great close to town and Ovens River. The room was lovely and in clean condition.
Philip the owner. Every time we went to leave or arrive, he would accost us, with unfounded complaints. Our apartment was above permanent tenants, who claimed we had music on loud (not true) overnight. The balcony light supposedly left on overnight (not true). Philip had got up during the night and assumed because it was on it had been on all night. One of us would have been out side at that time. Only suitable for people that don't go out, don't watch television, don't listen to radio, and don't move around the apartment after dark. Permanent tenants and tourists do not mix. Very disappointed. Philip is very repetitive, short term memory loss, as soon as he told us something he would immediately repeat it 4 or 5 times one after the other. Held us up for so long when we arrived that it was too late to be able to go out for tea, so no food to eat on our first nights stay. I do not recommend Merrimeet for anyone under the age of about 75. Or anyone for that matter.
Comfortable, very quiet and beautiful gardens
The place was very clean, our hosts were charming and very helpful. We loved the gardens and how close and easy a walk or was to town. The place was well set up and the kitchennette was serviceable and clean. There's plenty of space for two people and a wonderful fire and spa bath!
We found that in our apartment on the ground floor, we could hear people walking around upstairs and people speaking both upstairs and next door quite clearly (including snoring!) which impacted on our sleep.
I really liked the accommodation, clean comfortable and well equipped. The friendly owners Phil and Lesley, and the location. Bright was a lovely place to visit, we enjoyed the activities available in the area, and relaxing on the deck at the end of the day.
In our unit (upstairs part of The Mews) the bathroom shower space was somewhat cramped by the sloping ceiling, and the kitchen bench areas were small. The TV sound quality was rather limited.
Beautiful Gardens, location, clean
Bed very uncomfortable, not enough blankets, window winders broken could not open them, handle of the coonara broken,
Everything. Staff very friendly. Incredible set up. Perfect place to relax. We will come back
Very pretty gardens and loved the wood fire.
The shower over spa bath very risky to get in and out of, dangerous for any older, less agile person. This should have been brought to peoples attention on the website , no other way to have a wash. Manager very matter of fact about it but did agree it had been an issue with others before us.
Easy walk to town, comfortable, quiet and friendly
The cottage setting was very picturesque.lively outlook. The staff were very friendly. Loved our stay.
The bed was uncomfortable and could feel the springs. Did not sleep well.
The gardens were beautiful & the walk through the property & down to the river and into town was lovely. 10 minute stroll to the centre of town.
There should be a heater in the bathroom- a cold bathroom in not very inviting to have a spa in. The unit above us was very noisy- we could hear them walking around.
My partner and I couldn't have enjoyed our time anymore than what we did at Merrimeet Cottages. It was absolutely beautiful and we can't wait to visit again.
The staff were really friendly and helpful. The cottage was very clean and spacious for a one bedroom. The location was also quite good being next to the river and close enough to walk into town. I would highly recommend staying at Merrimeet Cottages.
Friendly staff, beautiful accommodation and surroundings.
Beautiful accommodation, lovely owners, reasonably priced, great facilities, good location close to town, overall a great stay.
Slightly limited kitchen facilities, but apart from that I have no complaints.
It is set in a beautiful, tranquil location right on the river which was gorgeous. The rooms were very clean as was the linen. The opportunity to have an open fire was great and plenty of wood to restock. The owners were super friendly without intruding on our stay at all.
That the weekend was over way too quickly!
By the river, very quiet & relaxing location Very friendly hosts Fireplace comes in handy in Winter! Close drive to main shops/cafés in Bright
Very uncomfortable bed & couch - both need an update! No wifi available in the Riverdeck cottage Interior is very dated & needs a refresh Ants in the kitchen Will be better value if interior is updated & the bed replaced
Location was good Log fire appealing Heating is good
Photos give appearance of a cosy apartment, in fact the opposite. Big step into the shower/spa bath. WiFi did not work, had to go into main house if you wanted to use it. If 4 persons in room seating inadequate. Poor appliances in kitchen. Laundry is communal not in apartment as stated.
