Stayed here to run a workshop in Echuca and was pleasantly surprised to discover the detail that had gone into decorating each room with antiques. It's a very special little BnB in a fabulous location to explore the port area. Have since gone back with family and would definitely stay again.

This historic establishment provided a very comfortable two night stay in Echuca for us whilst traveling along the Murray River. Essentially a smallish B&B right in the middle of the old port area you really are located in the heart of the tourist area. I recommend visitors realise this is a fantastic old building full of history and charm but...

We loved staying at the Steampacket Inn. It is beautifully furnished, decorated and "old worldy". We chose a riverview room which was just lovely - not huge but not small, either. The bed was really comfy and the bathroom was gorgeous, too. The history of the Steampacket Inn makes it special, also. Furthermore, it is situated right near all the...

After reading the previous negative reviews (after we'd already booked) I was a bit nervous as to what we'd find upon check-in, but needn't have worried as it was really lovely. We had room 2, not a whole lot of free space around the double and single bed but we managed perfectly well. I just loved the feel of history...

Positives: - Location couldn’t be beat. - Loft room had ample space for our small family and for storage, and was high enough up from the street that we didn’t really have noise to contend with. Negatives: 1. Room was very dated. Only most basic amenities provided. No handtowels, face cloths provided. Room items not replenished after use: water, milk,...

We stayed as a couple over Christmas for a 1 night stay. We stayed in the upstairs room overlooking the river which was great with the view and also the occasional toot from the steamships during the day. Steampacket Inn is a charming yet simple B&B with pleasant but small rooms. It was difficult to find even floor space to...

A sweet but simple B&B. Lots of nice details (tea/coffee, fridge, real cotton sheets, aircon) but room cramped and lacking some basic facilities (no hand towel or any where to put one in tiny en suite, no chest of drawers or wardrobe just 4 hangers on door, 3 bed room but only 2 bedside tables and lamps).

We chose the venue after seeing its position on a recent business trip in the area. Our room was lovely overlooking the river. We stayed for 2 nights. The only issue we had was not being able to have breakfast before our departure. We were a little confused as we had breakfast on the first morning at 7.45 however we...
