I am so glad I booked here. The place was spotless, the room extremely quiet and the bed comfortable. The hosts were so so friendly and informative. The next day breakfast was amazing. The homemade blueberry muffins were the best I've ever had. I will recommend this place to anyone, and will always stay here again when in Picton. It... More

A delightful Bed and Breakfast in Picton, run by a most welcoming and hospitable couple. Clean and comfortable. Use of a cosy lounge with fire. An easy walk into Picton central for dinner. Very tasty breakfast provided, including home grown walnuts and homemade yoghurt.

Sharon and Russ were amazing hosts. My husband fell in love with Sharon's baking. Breakfast was excellent. The view and the setting just a 5 min walk from downtown and Shelley's beach is perfect for exploring Picton and for exploring the wineries in Blenheim (25 minute drive) We would highly recommend Echo Lodge

Russell and Sharon are fabulous hosts and the house is a lovely traditional bungalow. Ensuites have been added to each room and the communal dining room/ library is warm and welcoming. It's an easy walk to the shops and restaurants of Picton.

Hosts Russell and Sharon have created a beautiful restored villa which makes for a comfortable and luxury stay at Echo Lodge. Big rooms, tastefully decorated, with a lovely dining room for breakfast. Great feed and lovely extras like Easter eggs and hot cross buns! A must stay in Picton

This is a very charming B&B, the house has been renovated to very high standards, the rooms are very comfortable. The pictures can't show how lovely it is in real. The breakfast was okay but couldn't keep up to the standard some other B&Bs have set. But at the price paid it was totally okay. We got some very good... More

We stayed at Echo Lodge for one night on 16th January 2015 and was made extremely welcome by Sharon. The room was lovely, clean and bright and perfect for our purpose. The facilities were very good, especially choice of beverages. We had to leave very early in the morning to catch the ferry and Sharon provided us with an excellent... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a good review about Echo Lodge. It was no problem at all to make our take-away breakfast, it has been popular this year and other guests have enjoyed having a "picnic" on the early ferries. Hope you can make it back to Picton again. Kind Regards Sharon More

I just spent 29 nights on the South Island and this was one of my favorite accommodations. The host is very outgoing and friendly. The place is warm and inviting. The location is a short walk to the harbor. There is unlimited free wifi, with good download speeds (unusual to get unlimited/free on the Island). Cooked-to-order breakfast and friendly cat--...

Could not be faulted. Beautiful home, clean comfortable quiet rooms, graceful hosts and a good breakfast. We would return in a heartbeat. Located only a few minutes walk from town. It was our second night in Picton and our original B&B was full for the second night. Both places were outstanding. nuf said!
