I love Beechworth it is my happy place. Previously I have stayed at the George Kerford which is at the same location and I was happy. The nurses quarters are a beautiful Art Deco building remaining from the asylum days. Our family suite was a good size, the room was very warm but it was noisy and the broken toilet button should have been fixed. Breakfast was included in the room and was in the George building and whilst basic it was ok. The web page and booking site is confusing and even though I had stayed here before I was still confused.

As you would, know, this is part of the old Beechworth Asylum. The place is privately owned and bits of it have been sold off to private enterprise. The Nurses Quarters are part of The George Kerferd Hotel - and it is totally separate to the GK Hotel.

There is adequate signage to direct you to check-in. I was told where the accommodation was and the parking area - which is at the rear of the Nurses Quarters.

We had booked a "Deluxe Queen Suite" for two nights. This actually turned out to be two rooms, with a bathroom in the middle. One room had a couch and cupboard with a TV and the other was the bedroom. One assumes that when the building was in fact the nurses quarters, the room with the couch was another bedroom and the two rooms shared the bathroom.

Overall the accommodation was a good size. There was no view - only that of the car park. It was quiet and comfortable. The bathroom only had a shower and sink, but was a good size and had everything you needed. There were heaters in each room and the rooms were comfortable.

Breakfast is served from 8am-10am in the GK Hotel - which is a two minute walk. It's only a Continental breakfast, but enough to get you going for the day and was included in the room rate.

There is an outdoor balcony off a common area outside the lift. The balcony gets the afternoon sun, has a view over the grounds and given it was only about 10C, a cup of afternoon tea in a bit of sunshine would have been very nice. We went out to the balcony only to find a broken chair and a mass of cobwebs and dirt. A pity. It would take an hour to clean the balcony up, replace the rotting broken chair. A coat of paint would top it off. Just a thought......

Cost for two nights was $235 which included the breakfast. This is a very reasonable price when compared to other places in Beechworth and it's a unique venue.

We arrived late and had trouble locating reception and were unsure where to park as there were no designated parks for check in and signs up everywhere saying not to park on the grass. The room was overly warm and it wasn’t possible to change the temperature. A large and noisy generator was cutting in and out all night. Lights in the hallway were permanently on making it impossible to darken the room. I got allergies - unsure if it was dust mites from the bed or the mould. To top it off breakfast was strictly at 8 with no option for anyone needing to get away any earlier than that. In our case 7:30, or a breakfast basket we could prepare ourselves, would have been fine. Also I didn’t like the vibe of the place as it is a former mental asylum. Plus it is miles from the main town centre up a big hill which is not that convenient!

We stayed one night. Our room was large and warm. Bed was really comfortable. We had an huge bathroom ensuite which unfortunately could not be heated. We were one of the very few in the accommodation and although the decor was art decor, it was a little cold and creepy. Perhaps more colour is needed to brighten and cheer the place up a bit.

Room tip: Gorgeous surroundings.

The room was average, though warm enough with the heaters on, and the shower worked relatively well, and the bed provided a good sleep.
The thing people look out for in a hotel room is a good sleep, a good shower and security. You need to be able to feel secure and that you have privacy.
We were quite surprised that when we were in a state of undress and without any warning a person was peering into our room through the "locked" door! We had the door locked from the inside and had placed the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the outside handle.
The basic courtesy of a knock or a warning was not provided, they just barged in on us unannounced. You would think that if you work at a hotel, the basic concept of respecting peoples privacy would be the first thing you were taught. Unfortunately not here. A master key means do as you please.
Not really impressed...
