            A group of empty nesters ventured to Beechworth for fun and sun over new year -we did have a lot of fun .However we felt the pool area was very neglected and quite run down .we have never the less booked again for this year and hope that the management have cleaned up the pool and surrounds !!!!

            Small and perfectly formed”

            The George Kerferd is a small boutique hotel set in the beautiful grounds of the former Mayday Hills asylum in Beechworth. We had previously stayed at the Linaker part of this facility, so this time opted for an overnight stay in the modern George Kerferd. With a good price of $101 for a standard double room including free parking and breakfast, the fact that the room was compact in size was a compromise we were willing to make. The double bed was comfortable, sheets, pillows and doona crisp and white. The entire room was clean and modern, with windows that actually open to take in the fresh air of the well-established gardens. The bathroom was clean and generous in size, particularly the shower, and included the usual complimentary toiletries. Towels were thick and soft. A minor gripe is that it took a couple of minutes to get the shower water to a consistent temperature, but it got there eventually. We'd certainly stay there again.

            What a disappointment!”

            We have stayed at Linnaker and loved it but thought swe would try The Kerferd! Big Mistake!! Upon arrival after a 7 hour drive the receptionist was too busy chatting to even acknowledge my presence and was clearly irritated when I interrupted her cosy chat to asked for help with my bag. Eventually someone came to carry my bag to our room. To call it a suite is misleading as it was just a big motel room. The bathroom is ghastly with a toilet and handbasin in one room and a shower cubicle opposite that is like walking into a huge fridge. Utterly claustrophobic! Ugh!! There was heating but it took ages to warm the room. Ads I lay back on the bed, tired from the long drive I noticed a huge cobweb dangling from the ceiling. Obviously attention to detail when cleaning is not a high priority at the Kerferd! How sad as the grounds around the Kerferd are lovely! My advice - Stay at the Linnaker, much nicer, cleaner and enjoys the same beautiful, tranquil setting with stunning, huge old trees and spacious grounds!

            King size bed, friendly staff, easy parking

            Our main reason for staying at the GK. Hotel was the king size bed. Our room was clean and comfortable, but we did find the bathroom facilities a little dated and the shower was separated from main bathroom like it was in a cupboard - a little odd. The staff were very friendly and as we merely required accommodation to attend a wedding it was more than suitable for our purpose, bed very comfy, pillows average to good and all very clean. All in all a very pleasant stay.

            Pleasant Stay”

            Heating worked, nice bar onsite

            As a couple we had a pleasant enough stay at the George Kerferd Hotel. The staff were very friendly, and helped us to book into an Asylum tour on the evening we arrived (which was fantastic). The hotel itself was not quite what I expected. It is in two buildings, which is not apparent from the website. One is the old nurses quarters of the Asylum, and the other is a conference centre which our room was in. Neither of these is the picture advertised as exterior on the website (that is the front of the Asylum). The room facilities were quite basic and motel like, with no mini bar or tea or coffee making facilities. The bar at the conference centre was lovely though, and they were kind enough to give us water to take back to our room. The split system heating in our room worked brilliantly which was much appreciated. The hotel is about a 15 minute stroll into the main street, easy on the way in and a bit uphill on the way back. In terms of value for money, the facilities are more like a motel so if you are looking at booking here you should compare the pricing to the motels in the area.

            It was a very pleasant place to stay the room we had was clean and comfortable though a little tired and spartan. We were staying with friends and access to a lounge would have been good. The restaurant is again spartan in decor but the food is of a good standard. Our breakfast was very good indeed. We would stay again.
