It's location is spot on to the shops...

This hotel has recently been refurbished to a high standard and is very nice. There is also church converted into rooms which are huge and fabulous! Lovely armchairs beside a fireplace, king sized beds - very very nice!

We stayed for one night in a standard double room. The room was very clean, comfortable and had been renovated. It was a great location and walking distance to all the things we wanted to see in the town. If we were to return to Castlemaine, we would stay here again.

On checking out we left two telephone chargers in our room....

Love staying at the Colonial, Castlemaine. Big rooms, very quiet and walking distance to so many places I like going. Wow, check out the Taproom at the Old Woollen Mills, its brilliant. Yummy beers brewed right there. Can't beat walking back to your comfy bed.

Nicely presented clean room with good amenities. Within easy walking distance of the City Center of the Historic town of Castlemaine in the heart of the Golden triangle. An ideal spot to stay while touring the historic Goldfield areas surroundings. Highly recommended as a base for historically minded, or simply tourist attractions. Close to historic towns Bendigo and Maldon.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was comfortable and quiet. Well positioned to explore the town and surrounding district, with several excellent restaurants within walking distance. Room service meals were also available although we didn't need to use these.

We spent a night here on a whim and it was lovely. Very clean, with a comfy bed and lovely shower it was made even better by helpful smiling staff. They called us straight away when we left some gear behind too. Centrally located and reasonably priced. Totally positive experience.
