“An amazing way to relax”
Reviewed 16 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had the pleasure of staying in this unique B & B, which started out as a paddle steamer on the Murray in 1902. It had comfortable furnishings and above all very peaceful. There is nothing as relaxing as the gentle lapping of the water against the hull.
The owners even provided a bottle of wine so we could sit on the deck in the late afternoon watching the bird life.
This is and the Goolwa area is one of the highlights of our trip to South Australia.

“Perfect way to rest”
Reviewed 18 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The PS Federal is a perfect way to rest, that is both for visitors and for a Grand Old Lady of the river.
When such a boat reaches it's retirement time, to turn it into such a delightful get-away is perfect. Comfortable, well laid out and you don't get rocked by waves, but feel like you are afloat.
The ladies were particularly appreciative of the fresh flower and we guy of the wine.
We had a great time, thank you.
