Blink and you could miss it. Sandwiched between higher profile frontages in the high street this is a real Fernando's Hideway! We booked it by chance and were very happy with our night. Debbie greeted us with a tour of the venue and we were chatting like old mates in no time at all. Parking is best in the laneway... More

Loved it enjoyed the home cooked breakfast and the rooms were lovely. Would certainly stay there again. Would also recommend it to couples. Spa bath was huge. Thats all I have to say but this app wants me to say more. Grrr.

We stayed her for 3 night last weekend. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left Deb and Martin were incredibly friendly and welcoming. The central location means we were able to walk to most places we wanted to go. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed or wanted. Breakfast was fantastic (best scrambled eggs I've...

This hotel has the elements of a good place to stay, but a few issues have reduced my rating for this review. On the plus side the location is excellent being central and close to all shops, restaurants and river cruise boats. In addition the Grand Spa room we stayed in was quite nicely finished and had access to a... More

We stayed a long weekend here a few weeks ago. It was a late booking and Debbie was very pleasant on the phone. However when we got there it was a different story. My husband went to check in and find out where to park our car. He was told to 'bring your wife in here, because your incapable of... More

Hi Sue, Thank you for your review and the nice things you had to say about your stay. However, I did not tell your husband that he was incapable, but I did say, as I always say to guests checking in that we prefer to do the check in with both people because sometimes they don't remember what we've said....

A great quirky B&B in the heart of Echuca. Stayed two nights. Large clean rooms with interesting themes & what a hearty breakfast with fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal & eggs & bacon. Delicious Tapas, relaxed evening - thank you for a great stay Martin & Debbie

Had a lovely time over 2 nights. Martin and Debbie were great hosts. The food was yummy and the beers were awesome. Highly recommend this as a place to stay with great heritage rooms. It is central to everything and a hop skip and a jump to the paddlesteamers.

We'd read positive things about the Bordello from Trip Advisor and we looked forward to our long weekend stay. Normally very positive, quickly disappointed. It's set on the high street so a terrific and central location. Upon arrival the staff (presumably the owner) was unwelcoming and actually very abrupt. She was pushy trying to get us to book into their... More

Hi Neil, Thank you for your review and the positive things you had to say about our location. However, I need to address some of the issues you raised. We don't have room service as there are only 8 rooms, all within 100 metres of the restaurant and bar. So our guests prefer to come into the bar to order... More

We chose the Bordello for a different experience rather than a boring normal motel room. It was well worth it. The place has character and the rooms are furnished in a unique and interesting way. The spa and log fire added a great touch to an enjoyable stay. Martin and Deb were great hosts, dinner (selection of tapas) was good... More
