    First time to try traditional B&B”

    We are a couple and newly migrated to Melby from SG and we never tried a traditional Bed & Breakfast. We had lots of good surprises: 1. The place was VERY clean, almost "sparkling". There are a lot of spaces and nooks inside the house if you want to do some reading or relaxing or watching TV. 2. Breakfast - there's a menu you can choose from. We thought it was a small breakfast just like fast food but was surprised it was a full breakfast! We actually ordered 2 breakfast and I had to cancel to other one. The juice was organic and very tasty! 3. Surprise - there's a box of chocolates waiting for us on the bed. Appreciate it 4. Light supper - I was car sick going up/down Falls Creek and I was not able to eat well. Appreciate that there are some muffins and cookies baked for the guests 5. Added perks - there are a lot of options for the drinks with different flavors: tea, coffee, juice, soda, beer and even liquors (wine, whiskey, etc) - and all are free! 6. The bed is heated and I was able to sleep well Nex time, we go to Bright on Autumn, we will probably book them again if they are not fully booked! I took out 1 star due to Pauline who was not that friendly. I asked about late checkout as our friends who are staying at another hotel was just checking out same time. Perhaps latest 11am but she said she is not going to be able to clean up in a but irritated tone which was still fine but then the asked us to wait outside the door and it is winter so it is chilly. We felt we got kicked out. Other than that Keith has exceeded our expectations. Thanks a lot Keith!

    HI Franceleen thanks for for great guest review, sorry you felt like you were kicked out but you emailed me several times regarding check in & check out & you were informed the times that you could check in & check out & you even asked me on the day of your departure which I said no later than 10.00pm as we had guests coming in that day, sorry that this did not suit you but I have to look after all my guests for the time that they are here. Kind Regards. Keith & Pauline. Gatekeepers Traditional Bed & Breakfast.

    Host Keith ; location; coffee

    It was one of better experiences with B&B stay. Keith and Pauline were most gracious hosts. Keith provided freshly baked/prepared afternoon tea each day during our stay. We had friends from France with us and they were quite impressed with standards of the Gatekeepers Traditional B&B. We plan to stay again during May Autumn festival.

    Enjoyable”

    Spotlessly clean, very friendly owner, complimentary extras of bikes and an open bar fridge well stocked with bottled water, soft drink, beer, wine and spirits.

    Enjoyable. This time of year at Bright is renowned for the autumn leaves and this place is well suited to enjoy them. It is a very pleasant 10 minute walk to the town via either the trail trail (just out the back gate) or along the river path (across the road and down a side street). It is also an easy bike ride along the trail to other towns. We were the only guests (there are 3 bedrooms) and layout worked very well for us. Owners maintain the place in an "as new" condition and everything form BBQ area to inside of the house is spotlessly clean and tidy.

    Welcoming hosts in a beautiful town”

    Hosts were welcoming but not intrusive. Room was spotlessly clean.

    We stayed at Gatekeepers for three nights to explore the area and ride the rail trail. We were made to fell very welcome and nice little extras included free drinks from the fridge, a box of chocolates and quality toiletries. This b & b is only a couple of years old and spotlessly clean throughout. Located right next to the rail trail and within easy walking or cycling distance to town it is in an ideal location to explore the area.

    Great location, clean and comfortable guest room, with a large guest lounge available. Excellent breakfast. V frienly hosts, attentive to needs. Delicious cake provided for supper.

    The cottage itself is an interesting, historic building and has been very sympathetically extended to provide the Bed and Breakfast accommodation. The hosts, Pauline and Keith, had thought of everything that is needed for a comfortable, pleasant stay. They had paid great attention to detail and knew exactly what would appeal to guests. There is plenty of space, both in the bedrooms and in the well-equipped guest lounge.
