A lovely old building. Very central in Castlemaine. Room was furnished with lovely old furniture, but modern bathroom. Quality toiletries and coffee/tea in the rooms. Great hosts. We had dinner there, and were made so very welcome - they served us dessert in the lounge :)

Decor is unique. Restored colonial style furniture. But with modern bathroom, Internet, bar etc. Location is central. Couple a stay here with one of the historic dining venues for a memorable experience. Will stay here again.
