My wife and I stayed here for one night and had an entirely enjoyable time. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful with dinner recommendations, the room was comfortable and clean, our breakfast was perfect with plenty of choice and we would absolutely look to stay here again.

We were in Castlemaine for a wedding in the centre of town. The venue was a short walk down a lane away from the Empyre - a delightfully renovated hotel run by a talented restauratuer in an earlier life. Our needs were modest and only for one night but one could easily spend longer. Breakfast was consistent with the hotel... More

My husband and I stayed at the Empyre hotel for 2 nights recently. The hotel is in a great location and is a lovely building. The bedroom is furnished with beautiful furniture. Breakfast is included and whilst the menu is small, it is ample and tasty. We were not disappointed with our stay but we do have a few suggestions... More

My husband and I had a one night stay at The Empyre on a touring holiday of NWS and Victoria from England. We had the most wonderful and relaxing stay in a beautiful room and with a fabulous breakfast. Choose one of the verandah rooms if you can, but all rooms are beautiful and stylish. This was the best hotel... More

We have just returned from a long weekend in Castlemaine for the State Festival. We have stayed at the Empyre a couple of times before as the location and facilities are superb but this was the first time with new hosts: Tony & Angela. We were not disappointed. We were in the Garden suite at the back which is a... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Empyre last weekend. The owners are welcoming and easy to deal with. The property itself is clean and beautiful....the provided breakfast ( included in the tariff) was lovely. We stayed in the Empyre suite... It has a lovely verandah that overlooks the street to enjoy a nightcap on. This place is well worth... More

My partner and I along with another couple stayed here when we came to explore Castlemaine and the surrounds. Tony and Angela Forrest are exceptional hosts who truly provide a relaxed and personalised service in a beautiful hotel filled with sophisticated charm. We were greeted like old friends, made to feel at home in the hotel and invited to drinks... More
