Echo Lodge was a fantastic find in Picton! Sharon and Russell were both such warm and hospitable hosts, and my suite was just lovely. It is located just a short 5 minute walk from town in a peaceful setting. Don't miss out on Russell's outstanding homemade yoghurt and fruit salad from the garden!

This is truly a hidden gem. Located just out of the center of Picton. A short walk to the restaurants and a few shops. Clean room. Truly a nice B&B, I highly recommend this one....:-)Outstanding breakfast!

Sharon and Russell have done a fabulous job with renovating this gorgeous house. Our room was spacious,clean and exquisite. The breakfast is unbelievable. Sharon went to so much trouble. Just about everything came from their garden (which you must see),including the walnuts. She even made the jam. Her scrambled eggs were perfect!

A charming guest house, ca 10 mins from the centre of Picton and the harbour front. The location was perfect for us to walk to the harbour to board our boat for the Queen Charlotte Track walk. Our room was clean and quiet and had a good shower. There was a shared lounge/breakfast room for the 3 bedrooms, which we... More

Lovely Lodge. Great Hospitality and Sharon and Russell are just really nice genuine people. We were lucky to stay here and meet Sharon, Russell and Sharon's Dad who was visiting. Sharon made a great breakfast (Great poached eggs yum)! and that homemade yoghurt just beats any supermarket stuff. Sharon made sure we were fully fed before our trip to Nelson.... More

We had a very enjoyable 2 night stay - everything was top notch! Friendly hosts, nice breakfast, comfortable room, clean and quiet. Nothing was too much trouble - we didn't take our car over on the ferry but they happily took care of our transfers - couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommended!

We booked Echo Lodge after seeing it in a B&B book lent us by friends who visit NZ often. We were delighted with our choice and very grateful to our hosts Russell and Sharon who ensured we had everything we needed. We really appreciated being picked up from the railway station and later being delivered to the Interislander Ferry. Our... More

This is our favourite accommodation in Nz. Sharon and Russell are sincere lovely hosts. Their house is warm, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The layout of the house is compact and the guests lounge and dining rooms lend themselves to meeting other travellers. The continental breakfast was generous and the food of high quality.

If you're staying in Picton, you certainly can't go wrong with the Echo Lodge B&B. The hosts, Russel and Sharon, are very welcoming and always willing to give you a pointer to a nice restaurant, or what to do. Our stay was also enhanced by the beautiful cat of the house, Chloe (don't worry if you're allergic, the guest rooms... More

Thank you so much for your review, wow it is a good one. It means so much to us that our guests take the time write them. Chloe certainly is a popular feature of the house, the accolades are starting to go to her head though and she is becoming a very smug "little" cat. Have a great Christmas and... More
