What really is the difference between a $300/night 5 star hotel and a $130/night 4 star hotel? Well, if you consider this very pleasant hotel, not a great deal if your measurement is the room you stay in. My son and I had a quite good night’s stay which I think was excellent value for money.
What are the rooms like?
They really are quite pleasant. The bathrooms seem relatively freshly renovated and are quite smart, with the beds also with newish coverings. Everything was really clean - there is nothing to complain about really at all. To be picky, the pillows were a bit firm, and there are some parts of the furniture looking a bit worn but, seriously, it is a very comfortable stay. Special plus marks for the pretty quiet heater and the not too hot beds. Lots of space, good TV, good parking too.
I presume if you are going to stay you are looking for a bed for the night in Beechworth that is value for money. Because that is what you get. Right on the main road, it is mercifully quiet with the rooms back from the street. The rooms are all facing onto the car park (with under cover parking) and the back (where the bathrooms are) face onto the back of the health centre/hospital walls – so there is limited scope for lots of noise. Special marks also for the well stocked mini bar at normal (ie non-hotel) prices.
What is the location like?
Whilst not right in town, it is an easy 15-20 minute walk into town if you want breakfast. No complaints on this front. We wandered in for breakfast at the bakery.
Why not stay?
Well, lets face it, there is nothing special. A good, honest night’s sleep at a decent rate is what you get!
