We loved our stay at the beautiful Priory. We stayed in the two bedroom flat and it had everything we needed for a family weekend stay. It’s a very short walk to the main street, all shops and restaurants nearby as well as supermarket. We’d definitely stay here again!

Booked as it looked intriguing and from the photos looked nice. Very mistaken, hot with no aircon, bed smelt, shower had mould, couches stained and floors filthy. Gardens really untidy and grass knee high in areas. Probably why we saw a brown snake just after arriving. We tried to cancel the second night but the owner wouldn’t refund. Real shame as Beechworth is such a nice place and there were so many other places we could have stayed.

The miner's cottage is a motel-type room on the back of the priory; one of two. It was perfectly fine and the the old bath for the bottom of the shower was a lovely touch. There was an old fireplace in the room but not for use. Breakfast was in the priory; very simple cereals and white bread for toast. It was exactly what we needed, a reasonably priced room for one night.

Super soft beds and sheets, was very comfortable. It was very hot outside, but inside the toy room Was nice and cool and the fans were great. I only wish there were hooks to hang up our towels after showers :)
