Location great, a bit out of town but with a care O.K. Lovely and warm, beds comfortable. Breakfast fantastic - one serving was enough for two people - a friend next door couldn't eat all of his. Unit at the back very quiet.

I've stayed here a few times for work & had to come back with my husband for a little getaway. The luxury church apartments are stunning, perfect for a romantic weekend away. The spa is devine & the bed is oh so comfy. The other rooms are equally as comfortable, with newly renovated bathrooms and the amazing aromatherapy infused shower... More

Friendly staff, nice modern rooms (warm on arrival), great shower, clean, tidy, nice. Only negative might be the morning traffic noise, but I sleep with ear-plugs anyways and didn't hear a thing. Will definitely re-visit next time I'm in Castlemaine.

$100 for one night in a double room was very good value. Modern room with nice open plan sitting area. Very modern and clean bathroom and nice furniture. Easy walking distance from the train station. Close to the main street and plenty of pubs.

Very friendly staff made sure we felt welcome, neat outside area and well presented and very reasonable rates will definitely recommend this to friends. Good location close to restaurants and city center.

Stayed three nights with two young children in the Luxury Apartment and could not have been happier. The hospitality was outstanding - the young girl at reception could not have been more helpful or welcoming. Beds, food, spa, heating, wifi - all perfect for a cosy winter stay. Thank you!

Stayed in the motel rooms. They look like they are not long since refurbished and are very clean and fresh with tasteful furnishings and fittings. Bed was reasonably "ok" and there were lots of nice pillows. The bathroom was spacious and modern. My room had two beds in it but my colleagues room had a comfy sofa in it instead... More

Cheerful booking via phone and warm greeting on arrival. Excellent modernised room with tasteful linens and comfortable chairs. Free and fast wi-fi. Ordered dinner on the night of my stay and was surprised by excellent range of dishes, very tasty food served hot to the room and on time. Price was very reasonable for the quality ingredients and portion size.... More

Beautiful updated rooms that are furnished very tastefully , The rooms are Comfortable and spotless. The bathroom had a walk in shower and the owner supplied fresh milk which is a bonus as I do detest the long life milk in my cup of tea.

On a recent trip to Castlemaine I stayed at the Colonial for two nights... The room was lovely, bed comfortable and bathroom clean with a great shower... Very good service & a good brekky although the plunger coffee on offer with breakfast wasn't very good...
