My partner and I stayed at this lovely country Hotel for two nights earlier this month. What a lovely quiet room, large in size, with a good ensuite bathroom as well. We were free to come and go and were met by the host and shown around. Breakfast was excellent. We would certainly recommend this boutique Hotel to anyone. It... More

I could honestly say that this was the best weekend that myself and my partner have ever had. The owners were absolutely amazing and incredible welcoming, catering to our every need. Our room was beyond expectation! The spa itself was worth the nightly fare! The bed was like sleeping on clouds and the open fire was perfect to snuggle up... More

We often like to visit the Bordello, late on a Friday night, to finish a fun evening. It's a boutique bar with a quiet atmosphere, sometimes with live, listening music. Fantastic beers available, and superb range in wines. Their Pinot Grigio being a favourite. Prices are up there, but to finish off an evening there is top value.

We only stayed one night at this hotel. For $250 we got an old room that was fairly clean,no shampoo, shower caps etc. No elevator, lump your bags upstairs, no parking, you just park in the street. The proprietors should really be in another business, not dealing with the public. The woman came in in the morning opening up the... More

Hi Diane, It would appear that you didn't check our website when booking. The building is in the historic port area, the building is over 160 years old, the rooms are themed of bygone times. It is very clearly advertised that there is off street parking. There was shampoo in the room. I am so sorry you couldn't see it.... More

My partner and I were looking for somewhere comfortable to stay overnight in Echuca whilst driving around Victoria. Looked on trip advisor and came across the Bordello, the Victorian themed room caught our attention and thought it might be fun. We were also drawn to the fact that we had breakfast included in the nightly tariff. When doing our initial... More

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.

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
