We stayed in the Wesleyan Day School Building, a truly unique experience. Everything was absolutely wonderful .We couldn't have asked for better furnishings and ambience. The room was very quite as it faces a side road. The receptionist showed us to our room and explained everything which is very rare in travel these days. She also provided us with a... More

We stayed here just for one night while attending a wedding in October 2014. This is where we will stay again when we need to stay in or near Castlemaine. The bed and whole room was comfortable, inviting, private and quiet. The service was excellent and staff extremely polite and willing to assist with anything. The room was spotless, well... More

stayed only one night unfortunately..... From the time I rang and booked (rare for me as I am an online type of person) thru to when we departed the experience was friendly and fantastic. Quality in the finishes is evident in the rooms - and the bonus of being shown to your door and walked thru the room was the... More

Nestled away just off the main road into Castlemaine is the delightful Colonial Motel. I have stayed here six times over the past 2 years and must say that I will always return. The rooms are pleasantly laid out with everything you need, spacious and quiet. The location is perfect being a couple of blocks from the shops and restaurants.... More

It has to be said this hotel is of an extremely high standard (accommodation-wise) and was a really welcome stop on the fourth night on our bike trip. The rooms were plush and comfortable with lovely comfortable beds, tea and coffee to sate the weary traveller, and a bathroom I plan on using as inspiration for what I want to... More

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
