You probably won't expect a small hotel of this quality in a regional town. The location is perfect for Castlemaine based activities, the facilities are excellent and the beautifully restored building is a treat. The generous breakfast is a fantastic way to start each day and the small bar a perfect way to finish.

Stayed here on the way back home from a road trip. And what a fabulous way to end our holiday in such a special and exquisite hotel it was! Everything was just perfect; the spacious room with the sitting area & the fireplace, the beautiful chandelier, the huge balcony overlooking the centre of Castlemaine, the XXXLL King bed, ...

Stayed for 2 nights on a long w/e and were lucking to get a cancellation. Room was large, period furniture, everything we needed was there although the TV and the fridge were a bit small but that didn't concern us. Comfy beds, good heating (which was needed), quiet and we slept very well. Rear parking, a common lounge area and... More

Spent a wonderful and relaxing night at the Empyre. Every part of the experience was welcoming - from the initial check in, until we left the following morning after a leisurely, generous breakfast. Tony, was an excellent host, including providing us with a range of dinner venue recommendations. Look forward to staying there again.

Unfortunately the gentleman at the reception of this business obviously thought we couldn't afford the only room available. We were spoken to in a condescending, rude way as he stated "we only have one room available which is very expensive. It is the Empyres large luxury suite, and cost $380 per night. I think your 5 star rated establishment deserves... More

I admire your confidence that you might find 'walk in' Saturday night accommodation for 2 single adults and two children in a small but popular country town.. My response had nothing to do with your ability or otherwise to afford the Suite, it was intended to explain that we had only one Suite available, it could not accommodate extra beds,... More

We stayed overnight this past Saturday, and I have to say from the second we were greeted at the front door we both knew there would be no fuss, no issues and we would be left to just relax and unwind. A beautiful hotel, fantastic hosts and a delightful room, I'd love to come back and stay in a suite... More
