Really really great service from a number of friendly helpful staff, especially Felicity who was one of our waitresses. We laughed with the staff, got our food requests met, had frequent interactions with them and could not fault their service. The food was outstanding, there was not enough space on the feedback sheet to write about how good our evening... More

After my partner and I spent a week travelling the beautiful Country side of Tasmania we decided to stop in at the Star Bar for a quick bite to eat and a refreshing drink. Saturday evening the 20th June we visited and were met by terrible service at the bar, the young woman was so rude, even all the other... More

Unfortunately we ate at the Star Bar today! Food definatley did not reflect the menu. Half the ingredients on the menu did not arrive on our plates as ordered & what did had a lot to be desired. A massive amonut of staff standing around laughing about what was on each other's phones, while ourselves and other customers had to... More

For the price of $91 per night, no value whatsoever. The room is very small and very cold, had to ask for the heater to fixed and still not work,had to ask for Electric blanket, had to ask for tea and coffee. Too noisy ( live band ) Friday & Saturday night, TV reception is shocking. The one Star is... More

We had an unforeseen circumstance and had to approach the hotel staff for their support. They went above and beyond to support us. Darren from the accommodation team was very friendly and supportive. The staff are authentic, respectful and courteous and the food is awesome! Would highly recommend this place for the location, customer service, food and drink!

We had lunch at the Star Bar before going to the footy at Aurora Stadium. I was pleasantly surprised by the standard of the food here. It was reasonably priced (for an upmarket pub ) and the food was very tasty. THe service was fast and the wine list very good. I would definitely go back.

Great staff, service and food... The only problem I have is that I had to be up at 5:30 and had to listen (@12:07) to a live band that is so loud my lampshade is rattling and my ribcage vibrating while I'm in my room! That definately wasn't mentioned on the website! Don't get me wrong I love a live... More

My friends and I dined here twice for lunch when recently staying in Launceston and I would have to say it has some great options for lunch with a $15 lunch option at the bottom of their menu or you have the choice of Woodfired Pizzas or a more larger lunch option. In both cases I chose from the $15... More

I picked this place for its reasonable price, multiple amenities (it's a bar and cafe and a little bit of a lounge w live music) and the room amenities, most especially the wifi. I quickly found I needed to hang out in the hall ways in order to use the 'free' wifi. I did so for 10 minutes but then... More

The staff at Star Bar were amazing to us! We were treated so well, they went above and beyond what any normal hotel would do. We can't thank them enough. The accommodations are clean, and well kept, it's just a small pub hotel so the rooms are small and thursday and friday nights the bands play until the wee hours... More
