    King of the goldfields

    A wonderful two days in a hotel that deserves its reputation as the best in the Goldfields. The Garden room was spacious And the amenities excellent. The goose down doona a little something extra. Unfortunately we could not enjoy the food because of the Covid 19 regulations but will be back for their dinners soon

    Hotel Empyre is wonderful. Historic building, terrific decor. The hosts Steve and Justin, were friendly and helpful. We had an event to go to and they let us have dessert in the gorgeous lounge when we returned. Food was excellent

    Absolutely fabulous

    We stayed one night in the Maguire Suite. The hotel has been beautifully renovated to a very high standard with lovely antiques. Our bed was quite comfy and pillows were great. The bathroom was clean and had lovely toiletries. They don’t do breakfast so we popped next door to Saffs which was excellent. Dinner is only Friday and Saturday nights. We sat on the verandah at sunset with a wine and it was perfect. Many thanks to host Lachlan.

    charming hotel

    charming boutique hotel very well restored. Our room was fabulous. Castlemaine is very small. We stayed on a Monday night when it was very difficult to find any restaurants open after 5 pm. Would have been nice to have the hotel’s restaurant open. Otherwise great stay.
