We arranged to stay at Castlemaine Colonial Motel just overnight while on a quick trip between Adelaide & Victoria for a particular job. We knew we would be getting into Castlemaine fairly late, so the motel accomodation was arranged, however as it would be unattended by the time we arrived they made sure room was lit up, heating was on...

We stayed in one of the luxury apartments and were not disappointed. A day school from 1852 converted into apartments. It was just lovely. Attention to detail from the bed linen down to the towels - quality. We relaxed in front of gas log fire in the afternoon and had a relaxing spa before we headed out for dinner. Breakfast... More

Reception staff do not do what they say they will. I left some belongings behind, they agreed to mail them to me & add the postage to the room charge. I called a couple of days later to thank them for their help, to be told their procedure is to not mail items, and that it was up to me... More

This is not true and calling us Dishonest isn't correct. Our procedure is that when Guests' leave items behind they send us a postage bag, which we put their item into, take to the post office and send off for them. You left a whole suit case behind!!!!

Arrived to find an old fashioned motel room desperately needing renovating ... Especially for the price !!! Worn out and not so clean . Cobwebs evident and the bed was very small. Carpet worn with stains and very worn. Power points didn't work for charging devices. No outside light so night access dodgy . Positive ... Well located and well... More

Thank you Aussiemum for your feedback, and thank you for letting us know that the power point wasn't working. But what a shame you didn't let reception know at the time so we could have attended to it immediately. We would have also suggested you use one of the many other power points in the room I do apologise for... More

We stayed here over the weekend on a classic car club event. Having never been to Castlemaine before I was very surprised to find such a comfortable motel.

Quiet, luxurious, uber comfortable and spacious. High gable ceiling, toasty warm fireplace, soft lounges and a king size bed with 5 star bed linen. Would highly recommend the luxury suite, we had room 19, worth that little bit extra to have such a fabulous suite.

Thank you jdandjm for a very thorough and generous review.
