“Very accomodating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Cheap and cheerful place that does clean and warm rooms with just about everything you need. Staff are very friendly and managed to accomodate a very late checkin whilst making sure the room was warm when castlemaine was freezing. Short walk to everything.

Stayed July 2014

I stayed at the Castle recently for the Castlemaine Jazz Festival. The room I stayed in was recently renovated and very nice and not overly priced. Fresh milk supplied but just really need bigger coffee mugs

We have been staying at this motel for several years now and we are pleased to say that the current owners are revamping all rooms. On our last stay we got one of the refurbished rooms which had two bedrooms, even though we only needed the one bed. This room would be ideal as kids can have their own space and there was even a small TV in that room. That room had two single beds (Not bunks) which is good. A decent Tv, Microwave and usual tea/coffee making facilities and a shower cubicle set up for taller people, which was great for my husband. Very well thought out rooms. Motel is old but overall we are very happy to stay here and do recommend it to friends. We have attended a lot of car events in the area over time and it is great to have a motel with plenty of car parking too. The current owner Corey and his wife are to be congratulated on doing this themselves and as a bonus..............the price hasn't changed.

No WiFi!! What place doesn't have wifi, really small coffee mugs (cups really) has a comfortable bed and reasonable shower, swimming pool but that's it. Spose you get what you pay for. Quite a distance to nearest restaurant.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

We were a little concerned there was only going to be expensive lodging in Castlemaine, but we called into the Tourist Office and they suggested three motels and we opted for the Castle.

It was ideal for our needs. The owner was a delightful girl and pleasant to chat to. Fresh milk, not UHT.

The room has obviously been recently renovated and was clean and fresh. Walking distance into town for dinner.

We were a little concerned that the location on the highway would be a sleep issue, but the traffic is virtually non existent at night, so not an issue at all.

Would definitely staff there again.

3 families (teenage kids) and a couple.
We recently stayed overnight on Saturday as we had a family reunion nearby and were looking for quality, reasonably priced and central accommodation which is exactly what we got. We had 3 family units with 2 bedrooms and one double unit. All units had been not long refurbished and were clean, modern, comfortable and practical. Well laid out. Large bathrooms with large showers. No noise at overnight. Friendly staff. If we find ourselves back in Castlemaine we will stay there again without hesitation.

My family and I have stayed here on many occasions. We were surprised to see on our recent visit the rooms have had complete makeovers, beautifully renovated giving them a brand new feel. An even better surprise to see the rates remain the same. BIG BIG improvements and we will definately stay again.
