We chose to stay here because of it's age so any criticism seems unfair but the room we had was really only good for a stop over, any longer and three coat hangers on the back of the door and a few small drawers wouldn't suffice, it was fine but tired and the lighting was poor. The bed was sooooooooo...

Really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in room 8 which was a good size and had a nice bathroom. We also had a window view over the Murray which was great. I've seen that 1-2 people have complained about the the walls and windows not being soundproof however the building was probably built 120 years ago and I think...

Room clean, and well presented. Heating not that flash nor electric blankets working, but bed very comfortable and lots arm coverings. Breakfast beautifully cooked and served. (If gluten and lactose free take own bread and milk). Staff not on premises, but helpful when there. Always book ahead.

Lovely B&B opposite the Port of Echuca. Very clean. Nothing to much trouble. Lovely continental/hot breakfast included in price. We had a very enjoyable stay in both the Steampacket Inn and Echuca Moama. Great food friendly people. Certainly would stay there again. Highly recommended.

The initial disappointment of the room size (smaller than my small main bedroom) with its empty (and seemingly disused OFP) continued. Nowhere except two hooks on the back of the door to hang anything. A bathroom so small the shower Curtain brushed against you as you sat on the toilet, and a sink too small to fill the jug in....

I thoroughly enjoyed my two nights stay, the room was clean, neat, a wee bit small but I think it is called petite, so that's fine especially for a person travelling alone. I loved the elegant cup and saucer in the room, the breakfast was scrumptious and plentiful. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, It's situated in a perfect...

Reading the reviews online of this hotel it sounded like a great place for a mini break. How wrong we were. We were stuck on the corner room which has barely enough room to get around the bed to the bathroom, and where of a nightall of the drunks like to walk past and sing, or pee late at night...

This facility was very clean and comfortable with an old-world charm. The atmosphere was like a Bed and Breakfast. It is in a very good location, on the doorstep of the historical village and the paddle steamers and the town centre.

We stayed a night mid week and had a lovely stay. The location is perfect for enjoying the sights as it is located in town. We didn't need our car to get around. The breakfast was an enjoyable hot and continental option. The decor in the rooms was victorian era and suited our stay. The hosts were friendly. Highly recommended.
