This motel has long become our preferred option when staying in Castlemaine and our most recent experience has confirmed again why. On the morning we were leaving home to go to a winery lunch near Castlemaine we found we had no running water in our patch of Melbourne, and supply was not going to be resumed until 1pm. We made...

This is a nice place to stay, I was there for the Maldon Folk Festival but couldn't find suitable accommodation in Maldon. The Motel in Castlemaine was a short drive from Maldon, was close to a nice Indian restaurant, and the staff were friendly and flexible about breakfast arrangements. I'd stay there again.

Just stayed here for 2 nights in a Luxury Spa Suite with my husband. This building was originally a school in the 1850's. Beautifully decorated large room. Very clean and comfortable. Gas log fire was very cosy. Being adjacent to Campbell Street meant not much traffic noise. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Close to local eateries. Would recommend this... More

Clean and tidy. Typical motel style place. Park out the front. Breakfast door for the breaky. Close to all town amenities. Comfy beds. Flat screen Telly. Bathrooms older in renovated but once again clean and acceptable. Worthwhile staying here if visiting as Castlemaine has heaps of attractions to see.

This one has been well tested by other relations of ours and repeatedly comes up with the goods, so we had high hopes - and were not disappointed. The Colonial is a good, honest motel. Very clean and quite well fitted out. Reasonably comfy beds. Fairly quiet (although is on the main road to Bendigo). Good quality split system air... More

A great stay always begins with the initial contact made at any accommodation place. The service provided by this motel, Yasmine in particular was fantastic. Upon arrival the young girl at reception (didn’t get her name) was very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. These two young girls made you feel very welcome. When I arrived in the room I was pleasantly... More

The Colonial is well appointed but somewhat pricey for a motel; the furnishings and bedding are fine but the vinyl flooring can be somewhat cool during the winter months. The bathroom is enormous and one could place a fold up bed in there for that extra traveller, if need be. The shower is accommodating and has an aromatherapy spray too-I... More

Booking was easily done over the phone. Because we were arriving late, staff left our room heater on which was very welcome after a long wet, cold drive. Yasmine at reception was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and well appointed, and very clean. The bathroom was an older style, but clean and well maintained. Walking distance to...

Huge flat screen TV, dining table and small kitchenette (no cooktop only microwave) Great king bed was luxury bedding. Large bathroom with spa. Service from booking to check out was great. Friendly staff were very helpful... More
