We have been coming to Star of The Sea 3-4 times a year for the last 9 years. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and modern. The finishes of the room are above average and in excellent condition.There is in room wifi which has to be paid for. I would suggest this should be included in the price of the booking.... More

I have stayed here 3 times and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Terrigal! It is well located within a few minutes walk to shops, restaurants and the beach. The apartments are immaculately presented with everything possibly you would need. There is a great selection of apartment sizes and we even visited beforehand to view and select the apartment we wanted.... More

We are a group of parents who chose this accommodation for its security as well as comfort for a group of 14 girls, just finished high school- to spend time together and not be part of schoolies. Two apartments were booked.Unfortunately when we checked in ,we were met with some hostility and were told that all the girls had to... More

Anyone reading this extensive comment would realise there must be 2 sides to the story. Star of the Sea at Terrigal are genuine 5 Star Luxury Apartments and have a great reputation as a family resort. The entire town of Terrigal some years ago made a conscious decision not to support "schoolies" due to a minority behaving in a very... More

The biggest problem with the Star of the Sea is that you never want to go home and, when you do, you're already thinking about your next trip. This was our third stay at the Star of the Sea this year - we need to stay close to Sydney and the Star just fits the bill perfectly. Relaxation kicks in... More

Firstly, it was very confusing as to how to get into the premises, labelled 'residential'. We drove around slightly confused, thinking we must have been on the wrong side of the building. However, we decided to follow in behind another vehicle and hope for the best. Once arriving at the reception, I could hardly say that we were greeted. The... More

We love our positive comments and we certainly take any negativity seriously. Your booking confirmation contains accurate directions as to how to get to our front gate and what to do when you arrive. It appears the elderly gentlemen could certainly be me!! Bob the Boss. Yes I can waffle on but I am always welcoming and sincere. We encourage... More

Booked in during September school hols (not realising) and was surprised they gave us special deal. What you could normally pay for one night or two nights they allowed us an extra night at no additional cost. So we stayed Fri, Sat, Sun nights. We have stayed here previously in a 4 bed right on the ocean. This time we... More

From the moment you step into Star of the Sea you are treated to quality and excellence. The greeting and introduction are courteous, professional and first class. The buildings, rooms and amenities are spotless and first class. 4 nights and could have moved in permanently. The gym could do with a major makeover with some quality gear - but it... More
