Old building in excellent condition, friendly staff, good food

My second stay, looks better condition than 2 years ago. New eat out area is excellent for ambiance & food quality. The rooms on the first floor need 'revision'. They are unadorned & unappealing, requiring new carpet and painting of greater accuracy. The bathrooms are good but need wood surfaces resurfaced. However I enjoy the Priory, it is well cared for & not run down, it's old with some areas original & others updated. I'll be back next time & hope that the bedrooms are enhanced & polished up.

Architecture, staff, location

There is not much choice in budget accomodation in town but you should not need to go past the Priory. short walk from the center of Beechworth. The historic setting is a memorable experience for a good price.

Warm, friendly staff and historic surroundings”

Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms and everything within walking distance

The staff were very friendly and helpful, even after a very tiring and hot trip, I felt better after their welcome. They even offered to help my carry my luggage! The rooms are very clean and comfortable, surrounded by splendid historical pieces and the bathrooms are also clean and spacious. This hotel is a really authentic experience and everything within walking distance. It is shared bathrooms (on each floor, close to rooms) and no TV in the rooms, just beds. So just make sure you bring your own entertainment if you need it or stay out and browse the wonderful shops!

Bedrooms OK but bathroom needs work”

But there's a probem with having just one toilet and shower for all males in the building to share. I'm not sure if this is the same in the 'Girls' bathroom, but if it is your facilities need renovating/modifications. The water pressure in the shower wasn't what I'd expect in paid accommodation but perhaps staying in an aged house with the plumbing the worse for wear and tear. I'm also not sure why there's a surplus of beds maintained in two rooms I saw. the dormitory was chockas full of double single bed bunks but just for a few people, and my room had something like four single beds and two double or queen sized beds, comfortable all the same. No tv or radio either? Quieter without it of course, and I didn't miss tv really.

Fabulous historic building centrally located. Shared bathroom facilities not an issue as I didn't encounter anyone in the Ladies bathroom during our stay. Our front room was enormous! We could walk to the main street and tourist attractions within 5 minutes.

Room not like the photo. Basic self-serve Brekkie.”

Great big interesting building. Close to town. Friendly staff.

Had a nice sleep in the Twin Room which had bunk beds and looked a bit like the dorm room photos. Not much else in the room. Shower down the hallway with great water flow showerhead (highlight for me). Nice breakfast of toast, cornflakes and rice bubbles but remember to clean up your mess afterwards. Which everyone seemed to do - so it worked quite well. Advise to get in early brekkie. Loved the big old building.

Beautiful building, clean rooms - kids single beds are shockingly uncomfortable”

Value for money for two adults was good but the kids beds - a bunk - had thin foam on a wooden base. Incredibly hard and uncomfortable, not fair at $21 per child. Continental breakfast was also "thin" with instant coffee, rice bubble or cornflakes and white or barely brown bread and spreads. Some muesli & yoghurt & a coffee machine would go a long way to improving it - plus decent mattresses for the kids or at the very least least thicker foam. But the check in was easy, the welcome warm and the building is absolutely splendid, the rooms were clean and the shared bathrooms are gorgeous.

INteresting and authentic olde world charm, Lively atmosphere with children there, Easy to mix and make friends.

It was fun and I enjoyed the feeling of being in a boarding school again, after many years. The place is very interesting with stairs in unlikely places and it made it fun to explore. We enjoyed the communal areas and the room was lovely. Bathrooms also clean and fitted in well with the guest house atmosphere.

Location clean well prepared room

Stayed overnight, enroute to the ski fields with two teenagers, in one of the miners cottages. Excellent location, easy walk to the main Street and a very well prepared room. However the the room was very cold in spite of the split system heating being on the highest temperature. Clearly a problem with the heating system. I am unlikely to book again as a result.

close to the town is all

It was like living in a nunnery, the bathroom and toilet were down one corridor around the corner, down another corridor and then down some steps. Not at all convenient. Not even a glass of water in the room.

Arrived late, directions very confusing, google maps kept sending us to the back door. I tried calling the phone with no answer. Eventually spotted a key left out. Very disappointed with the room as it looked nothing like the images online when I booked. Had very little sleep due to other guests. For the price I would definitely not return
