The Empyre Boutique Hotel evokes grandeur and an understated elegance of a bygone era not seen in Castlemaine since the gold rush.
Although built as the Albion hotel in 1860, its current transformation has produced a timeless and sophisticated hotel that is classic european inspiration. Furnished with stunning antique French and Asian pieces that adorn every level of the hotel, you will marvel at how they sit harmoniously side by side with modern amenities that we have come to expect today.
Just six luxurious rooms all named after different aspects from the hotel’s past, create an intimate travel destination, where you may relax and unwind.
Please note the Empyre cafe and restaurant has closed as of the 30th June 2012 and the hotel will continue to operate as an upmarket Bed and Breakfast venue as of the 1st July 2012.
