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

Stayed here overnight and had a very pleasant stay. Well fitted hotel with good facilities. Breakfast good with attentive owners. Great place for a weekend away. Rooms comfortable with electric blankets and heating and cooling. We would recommend this hotel.

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 stayed here the second time that we didn't go to the rolling stones, It was fantastic. Booking it was so easy Angela was lovely. We had three rooms which included the beautiful balcony. We didn't leave the balcony- looking out over the street - playing our own version of good music and sipping champagne- you feel like you are... More

Spent one night the Empyre for our anniversary in the Empyre Suite. The location is perfect just at the edge of the shopping and dining area but still within an easy 5-10 minute walk from the railway station - if not driving. Angela and Tony are very welcoming hosts and the quality and fitout of the public and bed rooms... More

Hosts are great, rooms are beautifully furnished with antique style. Breakfast was very good and everything in A1 clean and working order. Good parking in back yard off side street. Ambience of entire hotel is lovely and very gracious.

We just stayed in the wonderfully furnished Empyre Boutique Hotel in Castlemaine, Victoria. Our hosts, Tony and Angela, looked after us superbly, they booked our restaurant for dinner, suggested some great walks, and to top it all off they served the best breakfast we had on our entire trip. We highly recommend the Empyre for a superbly comfortable stay in... More

Great location - centre of the town - walk everywhere. Lucky enough to book one of the upstairs rooms which gave access to the balcony - which overlooks one of the main streets of Castlemaine. Perfect for the pre dinner drink! Excellent fittings - very high standard accommodation. Great hosts also.
