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.

Our stay in this B & B was wonderful right in the heart of the Port of Echuca. We would highly recommend this to anyone. The people are so friendly and welcoming. We parked our car when we got there and did not need to use it while we were there as we were so close to everything. The breakfast...

We were lucky enough to be given an upstairs room on the end of the building so had only one neighbour. The room was small and quaintly furnished with the en-suite taking up a large portion of the space. It was possible to hear quite clearly through the timber of the walls so we were lucky in having only one...

Being in a very convenient location, easy, no fuss booking process, home cooked breakfast - with a little treat for our dog Lulu and great country welcoming attitude makes this accommodation a great asset to Echuca.

Recent mid-week stay. The Inn was originally built in the early 1870’s so I was looking forward to staying in a little bit of history especially as it was my first visit to Echua. The good points are the location of the Inn. It is very close to the historic wharf area, walking distance to High street, which has some...
