Really pleasant stay. The priory has several room options from little self contained flats to shared dormitory accommodation. Beechworth itself has a lot of attractions to visit, The two itself feels like a step backwards in time. I highly recommend a visit.

We booked prior to knowing there would be a 'show' at our accomodation. We wanted an early night, and were able to doze while there was a performance in the same building however the noise made by guests after the show finished was extremely disruptive. A neighboring guest had to tell several others off for their loud and inconsiderate behaviour.... More

I've been staying here for a number of years now (as part of a large group on our annual cycle of the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail). The staff are friendly and welcoming. It's a large Bed & Breakfast complex, with several different areas for guests, and a shared kitchen and rear courtyard with BBQ's for use. It's a perfect... More

We stayed in the Miner's Cottage for the weekend and loved it. The room was very cute and homely with an open fireplace. The only issue was the impractically small shower but besides that we loved it. The owners were very accommodating.

The Parlour should not be a room for paying guests!! I didn't get a wink of sleep the 2 nights we stayed, and nor did my 2 yr old!! The first night we had backpackers randomly enter and use one of the recreation rooms as a private party room. The walls and floors are paper thin! At 4am my husband... More

What a divine place, no pun intended. Staff were very friendly and we stayed in the cottages out the back. We had a little deck to sit on which was lovely. The weather was very hot so we were glad of our air conditioning. Nice Continental breakfast supplies meant we could have a lovely breakfast on our little verandah. We... More

We thought the family room downstairs was great value for our family of 6 (2 adults and 4 children). Unfortunately there was someone in the room above us who walked around all night long until my husband banged on the ceiling (their floor) to make them stop to give us some much needed rest. This was the only bad incident... More

The Old Priory is a lovely place to stay in Beechworth. It is spacious, in a lovely location and with a rich and warm character. Many happy memories have been made here. The owners are lovely and very welcoming.
