We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay at Echo Lodge. Russell and Sharon are wonderful hosts with great local suggestions and make a delicious brekky. The rooms were immaculately maintained and very comfortable. They was a great vege garden and use some of their produce for breakfast. Highly recommended.

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast within the amazing town of Picton. I can not speak highly enough of the generous and knowledgeable couple who run this B&B; it was through their advice that we found some of the best restaurants to eat at and wineries to visit within the region. The room was spotless with one of the most comfortable beds... More

This is an excellent BnB with all amnities you expect and even a bit more. Sharon is a lovely host, who helps you whereever she can, e.g. lift from the ferry terminal. The rooms were very clean at agood standard. The breakfast was plenty and delicious. Recommendation to stay here.

The pickup from the ferry and drop off to our Queen Charlotte Track walk office were much appreciated. The fresh fruit salad served at breakfast was the best I have ever had. We stayed in the Tui room. Coffee and tea were available in the lounge/breakfast area. Room quiet and comfortable.

Thank your for the fantastic review and for taking the time to write it. It means a lot to us and we really appreciate it. As for the fruit salad, I guess we are lucky that we grow our berries and some of the fruit so we can pick fresh everyday. We hope you enjoyed the hike. All the best... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights in November, the room was small but very clean and comfortable, breakfast also very good. Sharon went out of her way to make us welcome, emailing and printing a couple of documents for us. Echo Lodge is easy walking distance from town about a 10min walk. The B&B is at the top... More

We only were only able to stay 1 night, but it was exceptional. When we changed plans to hike longer, Sharon went out of her way to adjust the arrangements, even though that meant moving us to another accommodation. It's comfortable & very clean. The gardens are beautiful & the place is very quiet. I would stay there often &... More

My adult daughter and I stayed for one night in September and thoroughly enjoyed our short stay.
