Getting here is half the fun …

Our Motel and Hotel is located in Harrietville only 15 minutes from Bright and 45 minutes from the summit of Mount Hotham.

Our location at the base of the hill makes us an easy friday night drive from Melbourne and our pub will be the place to be year round with regular bands and a great crew of like minded riders all keen to have a good time. I hope to see you there.
