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

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!

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.
