    Great little place, comfortable, clean & friendly

    This is a great little hotel to stay in Castlemaine. It might not be five star, or look all that fancy but everything was very pleasant. The room was well curated with some lovely artistic pieces; the bed was not too soft and not too firm; the pillows were just right and the towels in the bathroom were genuinely some of the nicest towels I've had in a hotel or motel in a long time (and I'm including some supposedly much 'posher' hotels that don't get the towels right!). The owner was also lovely; we had a great chat in the morning as we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast downstairs in the former hotel bar and art space; complete with freshly made coffee. So, all in all, for what is really just an old pub that has been turned into a little hotel - it was very pleasant and a great little stay. As for location - whilst a little bit out of the town centre it was only a ten minute walk which we enjoyed because you pass some great houses and the streets of Castlemaine have so much character; and around the corner from The Mill - a space with a brewery and an Austrian style cafe which serves great Austrian coffee, food and cakes.

    Great stay. Loverly host. Quick walk to the mill and botanical gardens. Also the best pies and treats I’ve had in a long time next door.

    We liked the atmosphere and the quirky decor. Maggie is a great host and made us feel at home throughout our stay. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was outstanding. A great place to stay!

    Maggie and Badger were very welcoming on my arrival. Despite my leaving at 6am in the morning, breakfast provisions were laid out and ready for me to help myself as promised. The home made poached fruits were delicious and such an appreciated personal touch. My room had everything I needed and I felt extremely comfortable and secure. The balcony is a lovely spot to sit and the hotel itself is a truly unique and lovely boutique experience. Highly recommended!

    Nice comfortable stay in Castlemaine

    Lovely one night stay in an old refurbished "Art" type hotel. Very friendly owner, comfortable bed welcoming room and I'm sure when the new owner has finished her plans it will be even better. Recommended.
