I have to say..we enjoyed the atmosphere, the food and the service...the star bar was the complete package....what a Fabulous menu something for everyone and the wednesday steak special is fantastic value. The steak was cooked perfectly..we had veges and sauce at a surprisingly no extra cost..wow...that is rare. The steak was far superior to that of the Black Cow... More

We've been travelling around Tasmania and stayed here for 3 nights. The staff were great and the food was incredible. No room service but you are able to go downstairs and order anything from the menu to take back to your room. There was live music each night which was an additional treat. Again the staff were extremely friendly and... More

My friend and I decided on a quick last minute catch up seated quickly, ordered taken and in no time our meal had arrived. Meal was great but when we went to pay the reception at the bar was frosty. I thought I'd use my entertainment card and yes it was only a small dinner for just two and I... More

Filthy! Arrogant person in charge!No parking facilities remotely close! Dark and dingy ! Broken glass everywhere ! AS IF!!!! And non refundable to boot!!! Parking would have cost us more than the room was worth and no security. Guy in charge rude and really didn't give a rats about anything!!!

Lovely food, good value for money. very welcoming would visit again. It has the largest range of tea I've ever seen. Very clean. Beautiful log burner and even had evening local entertainment. Very busy so is obviously the place to go in Bangor.

I was at the star Bar a few days ago and i have never been spoken to so badly in all my life. The service was disgusting particularly by one staff member i think her name was Lizzy She was rude and loved to have a chat at the bar about her boss. Wont be going back at all sorry.

Booked a single room online after reading 'good' reviews about it. The room was very old and tired with a worn out carpet and custard yellow walls that looked rather grubby. A fresh coat of white paint would go a long way. I arrived 30 minutes earlier than the proposed check in time and told that the room wasn't ready... More

Without fail, every time we visit Launie we visit the Star Bar. Always great food and a great atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and approachable. I ordered the special soup of the day, Pumpkin and Bacon soup. It was to die for. My mother had the fish and chips and loved it also. The cheesecake was amazing, however very... More

We've frequented here a few times when in town. Always a good feed. Last night was great and very friendly service and good food. Pumpkin and bacon soup was had by my son who said it was very nice. I had fish and chips. Would have preferred the option of grilled but it was really nice and fresh anyway. My... More

Clean rooms with own shower. Close to Art Gallery, museum, mall and the transit centre. Perfect for arrival off the Plane. No poker machines which was good, gave the place more character without them.
