Thanks to Nigel and Valerie the owners....what a great spot, close to main street, river and very quiet. Spotlessly clean. The 3 bedroom house has just been renovated. My first impressions at the front door was wow.....take off your shoes and enjoy the plush carpet ......quite luxurious through out, beds very comfortable, house well equipped. Will definitely stay again.

Located in the heart of historic Murray Bridge the Balcony on Sixth provides for a very comfortable heritage experience with all the modern day facilities. Rooms 9,10 and 11 in particular are great for business and couples with a comfortable bed and friendly service.

It would be perfect with toilets in the room; What shame ! The stairs are very dangerous for old people. The management of Balcony On Sixth Lodge should do better inform customers of breakfast and restaurants.
