Fabulous 8.8 From 43 reviews

Newnorthern Art Hotel
Highly recommended
The accommodation is outstanding in a converted hotel, with a library and plenty of communal area. We were there on our own and only stayed one night. It would be great for a group staying for a weekend with a nice area to gather after sight-seeing. At first you might think this is a little far out of the centre of town. But, in addition to the attractions of Castlemaine, here you are just a short walk from: the local brewery The Taphouse; The Bridge Hotel for an upmarket pub meal; and Coffee Basics for coffee and food that is far from basic.

Lovely restored hotel with great art and furnitur.
Had the best night in a hotel I have had in years. Got upgraded room which was small but comfortable. The manager was very lovely and helpful. Downstairs lounge is a great place to hang out and the gallery very interesting. The whole building has been tastefully restored with a lot of interesting furniture and great art.

Newnorthern, great place to stay
The Newnorthern is a lovely, quaint B & B. On the Main Street but hardly noticed the traffic, there were earbuds in our room and we were concerned that it might get noisy but not at all. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay there again.

A charming stay in a beautiful Hotel
From the time my husband Neil and I arrived at the Hotel, we were made to feel very welcome and at home, by our Hostess, Karen. The Hotel is a charming old building. Our upstairs room was small but very clean and comfortable, and had easy access to the balcony. The balcony has plenty of seating and tables, and was a pleasant area to sit with a cuppa or glass of wine. There were tea-making facilities in our room The large guest fridge is in the hallway. Some rooms have external private bathrooms, however, our room had an ensuite. We had full use of the beautiful dining area downstairs, full of charming furniture, where we could enjoy the breakfast goodies left out for us by Karen. The only criticism I have is that there are no wardrobes or cupboards in the room, just a few hangers for clothing on the back of the door, possibly because the room is quite small. Also, the bathroom did not have any cabinets, just a small stool to rest toiletries on. This is fine if only staying for one night. We found the location perfect and walking distance to the city centre. There is also a little café directly behind the Hotel, that make lovely coffees. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Hotel, and would recommend it for a short-stay trip.
