1. In description it says: your booked unit comes with: this, that, Toilet, Shower etc. When I arrived I've been told my room doesn't have Toilet or shower...it's external Shared toilet and shower...it's not fair....
2. It says: pets are not allowed...so why owner's dog is walking everywhere? I have an allergy!!!
3. There's no sound proof! Walls so thin you can hear clearly everything what's in next room.
4. There's no lights near the room door....so when you go to the shared toilet at night, then it's hard to put key in a lock.
5. A bed has wheels! Great! It's moving all the time!
6. Then there's minor things like: a tea has smell and taste as fish oil, etc, but I don't want to bother.

My 5 year old and I stayed here for a couple days over the holidays, and it was lovely! The vibe is great, with beautiful artwork and antique furniture throughout. The room was super clean and comfy, and we had everything we needed (tea, coffee, milk in the guest fridge right down the hall). We opted for a room with a private bathroom which was perfect for us. It was HOT while we were there, and the air con unit in the room was super powerful which was so refreshing after being outdoors all day. There are cute coffee shops within walking distance too. The breakfast was great - local artisan bread with jam and butter, cereal & muesli, and fresh yogurt and fruit. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay, we'll definitely be back next time we're in Castlemaine!

The place feels like it's stuck in a time warp with its ancient decor, which honestly brings a gloomy vibe. On a Saturday night, they had a live music gig downstairs, but the sound seeped into our room until 10:30, which was both cool and annoying. The squeaky floors made a noise whenever someone walked outside the room. The room was tiny, 3m x 3.5m, and to top it off, we had to share the shower and toilet with another room down the hall. Not exactly my idea of a comfy stay!

We came to see a music gig downstairs which was an excellent performance space and it was so easy to wander up the staircase to our room once the music had finished. It's a beautiful building with an eclectic collection of art on every surface.

Fabulous old school art hotel epitomising the boutique hotel feel of an earlier era. Charming, quirky, clean, thoughtful touches such as tea/coffee station in the corridor and breakfast in a delightful dining room space. Our room was facing the main road but quiet as the lovely enclosed verandah dulled any road noise. Maggie and Allen were so hospitable, we so enjoyed conversing with other guests around the fireplace and wished we had been able to attend the movie session on in the afternoon where one sat in an eclectic theatre room in huge comfy couches. Walking distance to pubs, cocktail bar, theatre, Botanic Gardens, The Mill and station. LOVED it!!

It's good, it's a non pretentious establishment that tries it's best to leave a nice comfy impression on you. Stayed in the boyd room, it was pretty comfortable. The breakfast was also lovely, felt like something you'd snack on at home. Events played through the night like a band and poetry reading. Left feeling refreshed.

The owner and manager, Maggie and Alan were very friendly and helpful. Our room was called the 'Heysen Room' (after Hans Heysen)The room with private bathroom was excellent. The room had polished timber floors with rugs, air conditioning, TV, nice clean beds, bathrobes. paintings on the walls. A very nice ambience. There is a communal fridge you can use. The continental breakfast is excellent and included tea, coffee, toast, cereals, yoghurt and fruit.
All in all a very comfortable and enjoyable place to stay in Castlemaine.

I went yo see a performance. It was a wonderful night. It started with owner Maggie inviting me to the staff dinner, so grateful.
A lot of fun, Gillian Eastoe and her amazing guitarist playing partner Terry Murray we very professional show.
Seeing a show not just a band in a pub.
The rooms were warm and cosy.Thoughtful care.Loved the continental breakfast, the gluten free museli was very tasty? Where do they buy it?
So glad I made an effort on a Thursday night as I buzzed asl the way to Sunday.
Thank you Victoria

We stayed overnight at the Northern Arts Hotel last weekend. Easy and friendly check in with Alan, super comfortable and warm room. We particularly enjoyed the electric blanket that was left on for us on arrival, and the complimentary room upgrade. Will stay again when we are next in Castlemaine.

Maggie has created the most warm, open , comfortable and inviting environment. The Northern Arts Hotel is full of delight and quirks. If you are staying in Castlemaine try to book a room here. It's loaded with charm and a fabulous Bohemian style.
