Russell and Sharon were charming hosts - Russell met us off the ferry from Wellington and showed us Picton on our way to Echo Lodge. Lovely house with great view of the harbour, but our twin bedded room was rather small and dark, and the bathroom tiny with no soap or shower gel and only one hand towel, hence my... More

This room also has the best view, across to the water. The bed was very comfortable, and the room and ensuite were spotlessly clean. The breakfast was excellent - despite the... More

A very enjoyable B & B stay. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming. The bed and pillow were the best on our trip so far. Breakfast variety was good along with gluten free options. Would definitely come back to this one.

We really enjoyed our stay at Echo Lodge. It's a beautiful B and B, convenient to the Picton-Wellington ferry, walking distance to restaurants and cafes. We had a very comfortable room with modern en suite bathroom, all spotlessly clean and fresh. Guests have a lovely wood heated lounge, dining and relaxing area. Sharon and Russell were perfect hosts, as they... More

We had a fantastic stay at the Echo lodge. The room was beautiful and the breakfast excellent. A huge spread with fresh eggs cooked to order! Our hosts even went the extra mile by picking us up from our ferry for no additional charge. I highly recommend the Echo Lodge
