I didn't find the owners friendly felt like we were imposing bad attitude this time round. Pancakes very basic they were just thrown together. I wouldn't eat there again I felt uncomfortable. A bit like faulty towers really.

I had a couple days work in Echuca and based on trip advisor reviews we decided to stay here. The photos looked good and the position was good and although the price was higher than similar places breakfast was included. The reality was the room was old world but not really charming, actually dated and a bit shabby. Carpet up... More

We are sorry that you feel this way about your experience. Given that we have the best position in town, right in the heart of the Historic Port Area, our rates are reflective of the costs of being in the best location. We have two rates available for business travellers, one that doesn't include breakfast which would have been the... More

You sometimes travel and get to experience some interesting people. You also realise that they might not be everyone's cup of tea. But when you can walk away and say "that was a fun weekend" it must have something to do with the hosts. That is definitely the case with Bordello Hotel. Debbie and Martin are characters, but great hosts.... More

There's no doubt that this accommodation is perfectly located in the town center of Echuca. The hosts were friendly enough. We've been to Echuca several times now and stayed in various accommodations and if i was to match like for like this one fails to tick the box. The room was stylish and unique but very small. Contrary to the... More

Hi Luisa, Thank you for your review. The unfortunate thing about Echuca in summer is that it is very hot. We have traditionally had the continental breakfast on a table in the breakfast room which is air conditioned. But we have recently found it is still too warm, so the fruit salad, yoghurt and juice are now kept in the... More

I'm not normally one to comment, but we had our 2nd visit for lunch today and again both service and food were faultless ! Very homely, honest and inviting. Debbie & Martin are both very welcoming and make it a very relaxing time. We haven't stayed yet but it is definitely on the top of my list as a must... More

I came to Echuca by myself but once I checked in at the Bordello I never felt alone. What a great place and wonderful hosts. The room was spacious and comfortable and I had a wonderful night's sleep. Breakfast was delicious

We came with our friends, visitors from England and were greeted by Martin who didn't give the impression that he was pleased to have people staying, smart alec attitude and not particularly helpful. Our rooms were tatty and furnishings cheap, nylon dooner, terrible brown shower curtain, cheap tissues and toilet paper, dried flowers, fridge with spilt milk encrusted in it.... More

Hi Janet, Firstly, I would like to address the issues you raised that were correct. The hoarding around the rear of the building is because it is about to be rebuilt, and unfortunately if you look behind the hoarding it is an eyesore. The circular stairs that take you past a rubbish bin are an alternative entry/exit for use when... More
