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

We were in Launceston mid week and looking for somewhere to eat for lunch and options seemed limited when we came up on this place. The menu looked interesting, the welcome from the staff friendly and the table service good. We ordered the bangers and mash which was $27 and the spaghetti matriciana. The food came hot and in good... More

This was a nice bistro meal, but the service was a bit slow. Good lunch specials at $15, wood-fired pizza and the chicken wrap was tasty. Seemed like a popular place as it was full, so would return again.

I unfortunately wasn't able to get to sleep til after midnight both nights we are there, fair enough they have bands on Fri and Sat nights, however they don't mention anything on Thurs nights too... The room was very outdated, the linen old and stained! and the FREE continental breakfast for 2 people for 2 mornings equated to 2 small... More

Came for lunch, took 45 minutes to get meal, not ideal on a 1 hour lunch break when we both were obviously dressed in uniform. There were about 8 people in so shouldnt' take that long. Braised beef had gel on it and was tasteless, no seasoning in spinach and sweet potato. Pork belly risotto was little pieces of pork... More

The hotel is the old Australian style of a few rooms above what used to be the pub, but is now a very nice restaurant and bar. Great food, friendly service. The room was spacious and very clean. Facing the street which is a fairly noisy one way street in the middle of town, but with double glazing to prevent... More

I stayed here for three nights; Thursday, Friday & Saturday And wish i had of paid a little more and stayed elsewhere. The room was small but that's ok and it did have everything that you need, however mine came with somethings I didn't need. The bedroom window frame was rotted and therefore did not close which was concerning from... More

We eat here about once a month if not more. Had the caesar salad, open steak sandwiches, pizzas and the star bar platter. Very reasonably priced, good service, quality food. Craft beers on tap good priced wine list never had a bad meal or service very consistant.

Visited in peak season so the staff were very very busy, but I found the staff very helpful and friendly, nothing was to much for them. The CBD location was terrific, so close to tourist spots/tour pick up & drop off/ shopping and for the foodies you don't need to leave the building. The Star Bar has some of the... More

As the name suggests, it's a bar and a restaurant. Guess you could count it as a cafe too. The room is clean and neat but very small. With an extra bed in we couldn't even open the fridge and kept bumping into things. I was afraid the noise problems would come from the bar below but instead it came... More
