    While the room was out dated, it was clean & comfortable. Can't fault the friendliness of the owners. A lovely, central place to stay. Park the car & walk around the town. Close to the skiing fields and winery's.

    Loved the attention to detail. Rose Garden out front. The motel was well layed out and is even set up for weddings.! My wife commented on the textured brick inside. We could not have been more pleased with the Bright Colonial!

    Stayed here for two nights as a work group of five. Our second stay. Great amenities with new undercover bbq area near heated pool. Clean, comfortable and quiet rooms. Free WiFi. Friendly helpful hosts. In room breakfast service. Short walk to town centre. Excellent value.
