Recently during a weekend visit to Castlemaine, I stayed at the Castlemaine Colonial Motel.The experience there was excellent. The motel has standard rooms and four luxury suites. The suites were once classrooms as part of a school run by the Wesleyan Church during the 1860's until replaced by other nearby schools. As a result,the suite was very large and featured... More

a group of us....my husband and I, a sister and a friend, stayed in the family room in late October. Accommodation in Castlemaine was very scarce that weekend as there were numerous events on, with lots of visitors in town, so we were lucky to score this room. It is in a central location, easy to get to the shops,... More

I stayed in the family room (with a separate room with two single beds) - the room was clean but dated. Was expecting the room to be renovated based on the pictures on TripAdvisor but no complaints about it. Good size TV. Basic amenities (such as a fridge and microwave) were also available. Short walk to the town centre -... More

I stayed at this motel as a last minute walk in booking when in the beautiful town of Castlemaine. Motel is an easy walk from the railway station. Coffee, books, antiques, heritage theatre. What more could you want in a town. Friendly staff. The solo room I booked was good value for money, included coffee/tea/hot choc facilities. Mini bar and... More

This is a lovely motel set just on the outskirts of Castlemaine. We were visiting family, and the location was perfect for us, and within easy walking distance of the town. We had a luxury Apartment, set in a converted Wesleyan Church, Day School. The decor was fresh and luxurious, with good cooking facilities, and a large bathroom, complete with... More

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
