                Room was just what we required. Being able to have breakfast there was great. We had breakfast there twice and it was great. Staff were so helpful and friendly. We were disappointed that the restaurant was closed both nights we were there which was Sunday and Monday nights. I also thought that there could have been more street lamps on the way to the car park which was quite dark part of the way to mote. Otherwise great. Very clean

                Lovely hotel. Very clean. Rooms are clean and tidy, not super modern but has everything you need. Pool looked lovely but we didn't chance it. Close to town but a 1.3km walk up hill! Be aware, don't want do that too many times. Taxi service available!

                My room was extremely basic but very comfy bed and good shower. Walls and curtains need a bit of tweaking. Felt like I was in a cell. Food was just ok. Free continental Brekky which was nice with a good choice. Pool was fab, sauna was not working. Bar with regular prices. Staff were great fun. Really friendly and bubbly. Was a really hot day when I arrived and air in was on in room which was really appreciated. All in all a good stay. I would come back at the same prices.

                We would choose a Queen room next time, as the Double was a touch too small for us. However, it had a very well appointed bathroom. We had an excellent meal on the Saturday evening, and the breakfasts were always good with very helpful and friendly staff throughout the hotel.

                We stayed 2 nights. Enjoyed the grounds and hotel. Restaurant and bar good. and service. Friendly staff. Great meal. Tasty and lots of it. Only complaint. As guests of the hotel they could not accommodate us with a table for dinner on our second night. I understand they take bookings of customers off site BUT I think guests should have some priority. So we enjoyed dinner and drinks in Beechworth. The grounds and tours are worthy

                Our room was too small and only a small double bed. the rooms shown on your website were bigger. I would have been prepared to pay more to get a larger room and queen bed. The hotel, grounds and location were good but the small room not very good.

                Great place to stay, close to Beechworth main street, absolutely gorgeous grounds so relaxing. Unfortunately the pool had green moss on the sides and on the bottom of the pool so wasn't able to have a dip which I was really looking forward to. Wasn't taking the chance of getting a bacterial sickness. Hopefully they will address that as the rest of the stay was really good! recommend this place for your stay Clean rooms, restaurant nice food . Would go back there as long as pool has been cleaned.

                A disappointing stay.”

                We stayed for three nights at the Kerford Hotel, and going by the photos it looked nice. The entry, reception and restaurant looked nice, but that's where it stops. As soon as you turn the corner to go down the hall way to the rooms it feels just like a hospital facility. The first thing that came to my mind was a nursing home, the hallway was dark, dingy and cold. When entering the room it was no better, everything about it from the bedroom to the bathroom again felt like a hospital facility. Not even a picture on the wall to add a bit of warmth to the room. Colour scheme could be better, not inviting, dark and gloomy. However, the bed was very comfortable, standard of cleanliness was high. Room was a little small when you have a couple of suitcases etc. Atmosphere in the restaurant was inviting and the staff at the facility were excellent, nothing too much trouble. The evening meal and breakfast we had in their restaurant was excellent. Would I return here, no. The rooms need life injected into them.

                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.
