We booked a package for the Walhalla Winter Festival. Dinner was very good, the bed comfortable, the room warm and spotlessly clean. We had a front room looking out at the historic rotunda - perfect. Breakfast was also very good. We had dessert in the guest lounge by the fire after a guided walk through the town. It was a... More

Expected more from this accommodation. Nice ambience in the lounge area..warm welcome by Russell...Rooms basic and did not feel homely or comfortable as expected. Mattresses firm, pillows hard. Apparently we could not bring our own alcohol to consume in the rooms. The wine included in our tariff left a lot to be desired. Evening meal very nice.. breakfast minimal... personality... More

Thank you for your review. Please note that we have never claimed to be a 5 star property. We are a fully licensed property and we provide 24/7 access to our guest bars where there is a selection of wines and beers at very reasonable prices to choose from. We also have a range of pillows…some firm, some soft, all... More

I stayed at the Walhalla Star Hotel for 3 nights in July and enjoyed a very relaxing stay there. The room was large, had a comfortable bed and a balcony with great views. No TV, but there is a good guest lounge with books and cd's also tea/coffee /wine. In the evening, you can enjoy a fine dinner in the... More

Thank you for your review. Russell and I pleased you enjoyed your stay and your time exploring the region. We've been very blessed this year with great snow and I always encourage people to get out on the plateau when it's under snow. More than happy to lend you my snowshoes for this unique experience.

We stopped here for one night and were literally the only guests in the hotel. The hotel itself is very good, the bed was comfortable and the facilities were above the expected standard. We particularly liked being able to get a chilled bottle of wine from the honesty bar and sit on our balcony as the sun went down waiting... More

We stayed at the Star Hotel on the main road in Walhalla and found this to be an excellent choice. We enjoyed a dinner bed and breakfast package and for a cold weather weekend, this was perfect - we could sit around the fire until dinner and then enjoy a terrific meal with a bottle of wine thrown in.

We stayed at the Star hotel as part of a 2 night package including breakfast, dinner and wine. The hotel itself is clean, room spacious however a little out dated. Meals at the restaurant were nice. There's no internet, TV or radio, so if you like your own alone time this is the place to do. I felt the hosts... More

Thank yo u for your review. Just a note to advise that it looks like we've had a win with Telstra and they are now trying to fix the internet issue that has plagued us for the past few weeks…so fingers crossed that our guest's WiFi system will be back on air shortly.

My partner and I stayed 2 nights at the Star Hotel on their dinner and accomodation special. The hotel is very clean and the room was lovely and tastefully designed.

Love the Star!!!! Enjoyed a three night stay over Easter. The Star is unique and fits perfectly in the beautiful old gold mining town of Walhalla. Michael and Russell are ideal hosts and add to the relaxed charm of this place. Fantastic food was enjoyed at the restaurant and the absence of television, phones etc was a highlight!!

Thank you for your review.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Winner of the LCBTA "People's Choice" Award for 2012 and 2013. Located in the heart of Walhalla opposite the famous band rotunda, the Star Hotel provides boutique accommodation with large modern rooms all with ensuite, king beds [twins available], CD player and air-conditioning. A visit to Walhalla and the Star is about stepping back in time to relax and enjoy the unique atmosphere of this hidden mountain village. Leave your mobile phone at home as they don't work here...if you can't miss your favourite TV program Walhalla probably isn't a good choice as TVs don't work in the deep valley either! A trip to Walhalla and a stay at Walhalla's Star Hotel provides a chance unwind and explore the amazing gold-era history of the township including the mountain railway, daily gold mine tours, heritage walks and fascinating hillside cemetery. ... more   less
