My husband and I recently enjoyed two nights at the Bordello Hotel. Martin welcomed us like old friends. We had a really good rate of $125 a night that I found with booking.com. The room was very comfortable and a little bit different from the norm and this rate also included a cooked breakfast. We enjoyed a lovely tapas dinner... More

Great food. Genuinely passionate hosts. Great location and a selection of the best beers in the world, what more can anyone want. Great selection of wines and loved the view from the balcony. Also enjoyed the spa. Tourist attractions like the Paddlesteamers are very close and restaurants are in easy walking distance.

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

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
