Beechworth is a place where you can see some different sights: gold mines, prison, charming shops, star watching, koalas, kangaroos and vineyards. There are also some excellent biking routes with excellent hills for the toughest bikers.
In the midst of it all is the Old Priory, 200 meters from the main street. It is a low cost dormitory with varying sized rooms with shared toilets and showers in the hallway. But as such very charming and peaceful. With grating floors, leaking windows, all sorts of different chairs on the terraces and faded interior it still beats any modern equivalent. Children would find it interesting exploring different floors.
We had breakfast, lunch and dinner served in the shared breakfast room on the first floor and we loved it. But I do not know if they normally serve food. We pre-ordered it before we came to the Old Priory.
Some of the rooms were quite small and lacked furniture, but we just went to other unoccupied rooms and took a chair. And I guess they would have given us one if we had asked for it.
