The hotel is situated in idyllic, quiet, lovely gardens. Booked a standard room which was OK for an overnight stay, but perhaps a little too compact for a couple if staying for more than one night. The room, however, was well equipped, despite its size. Enjoyed a swim in the pool which was very refreshing! Free Wi-Fi and a simple,... More

Where do I start.....Once we actually found this place it certainly had some charm, and so much unrealized potential. It felt a bit like being in the twilight zone. We stayed at the ?newly opened? Linaker Art Deco Nurses Quarters, which IS apparently part of the above George Kerferd Hotel, but is completely separate. Both places are in the grounds... More

Amazing place to unwind and relax - good, wine and service! Such an amazing place to go after a spa treatment! Lunch goes from 12 to 3 and there is no reason to rush! The food was amazing and the choice for local wine was brilliant! Will be back! ❤️

We had a lovely standard room on the third floor of the Linaker Art Deco Nurses Quarters and our rellies were upgraded to a beautiful king room nearby. Both rooms were nicely presented and spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds and high quality linen. We managed our own walk around the impressive Mayday Hills estate, which originally surrounded the old insane... More

We had only one night at the George Kerford Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room in the main hotel was roomy and looked out onto a woodland setting, part of the 40 hectare Mayday Hills estate. Had a lovely walk around the gardens and checked out the old asylum/nurses quarters which is also part of the hotel. A continental... More

Stayed at the George Kerferd Hotel Beechworth for the third time in four years. Why because we have found it to be a relaxing environment, friendly staff and magnificent gardens. Close to wonderful cafes, shops and bush scenery. Well worth a stay you will not be disappointed. Look out for special deals.

Set in 40 hectares, wildlife roam around at night, a well presented property, friendly staff and good size rooms. All this was part of Mayday hills, a mental institution. Well worth a visit, very close to the center of Beechworth

Hi Harryv, Thanks for your kind review, we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your time with us and that you were able to enjoy the local fauna. We've been lucky enough to have a particularly cute Echidna in our gardens these past few weeks and hope you were able to catch a glimpse! We hope to welcome you... More
