This is our second time staying at the Bordello, and again we thoroughly loved the experience ....we were lucky enough to get in after seeing a last minute rate on wotif for $125 including breakfast....we stayed in the French ensuite room, which was lovely and full of character and clean ....definitely not your boring normal hotel room....the only downside being...

We stayed and played at the Bordello over the recent Queen's Birthday weekend. The hosts Martin and Debbie made us feel like long lost friends from the moment that we checked in. The room, although a little rough around the edges (but what building of this age isn't) was full of character and had a very comfortable bed and great... More

My husband and I stayed for one night while travelling though. We had a lovely stay, Martin was a very nice man and only wanted us to relax and enjoy our stay. We had breakfast the next morning then was off. The room was classical , and delightful. The service was homely and attentive , overall, had a lovely stay... More

if you want a modern soul-less room don't stay here. My husband and I just spent a wonderful weekend here. The food was fabulous, the wine and beer just as good and the company was entertaining. Martin and Di could not have done more to make our stay more enjoyable. The hotel has lots of character and is situated in... More

My partner and I have just returned to Melbourne from a lovely overnight stay at the Bordello Hotel, Bar and Spa. This has been one of the best hotels we've visited - and we like to get out of Melbourne for the weekend pretty regularly, so we've been to quite a few! Echuca is beautiful, but for us, the accommodation... More

My partner and I stayed at this hotel thinking it was a luxury hotel seeing the photos and the prices. When we got there everything was old and very overpriced. Very old carpet and old bed. Very far from comfy and not appealing at all. The owners were very rude when we mentioned we had food outside rather than eating... More

Dear Jash0, Thank you for your review. It is difficult to know quite how to respond. The building is 150 years old, and was undergoing major renovations when you were here. Carpets have been replaced where needed, and such old buildings require a lot of maintenance. However, the charm of the place, the decor and fittings, are all in keeping... More

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
