I liked this hotel, it was peaceful and clean. The set up reminded me of a not so comical Faulty Towers. The hotel was well run and the meals were delicious, staff were friendly and helpful. The scenery was tranquil and relaxing. No TV which was fine. My only criticism would be the bed was a bit hard.

Ideal place to spend a cold winters night in this mountain gem of a town. Very relaxed environment with the owners giving great advice to assist to know where and what to do in the area. Took advantage of the meal accommodation package of a 2 course meal (main and desert plus bottle of local wine) even though there was... More

Myself and a couple of girlfriends headed back to Walhalla for a day of hiking, opting to stay at the Star Hotel the night before. Michael arranged interjoining rooms, and sorted us out with a great deal for a 2 course dinner and bed and breakfast and a bottle of vino. A great stay, with plenty of laughs and stories... More

Can't say enough about how great our short stay at Walhalla's Star was. An overnight stay during a business trip to Moe and to find such a glorious location like this was unbelievable. All my work worries were left behind in this peaceful , quiet location .The rooms are large and warm on a cold winter night and the balcony... More

For a quiet retreat there is nothing that comes close to the Star Hotel, set in a quiet valley in the centre of the old goldfields, it is the ideal place for a few days of rest and recreation. Numerous walks, the old cemetary and the goldmine are all within five minutes of the hotel. Restaurant was very good and... More

Firstly Walhalla itself - what a Gem! Old Gold Mining time that oozes history and Charm - if you arrive at night and plan to leave in the morning you will be disappointed this town needs a good 24hrs at least, having said that I would happily stay longer at the Star - Michael and Russell are the most amazing...

The meals in the boutique hotel are wonderful. If you go for no other reason, go for dinner. How they turn out such a great menu with so few guests is amazing. The hotel was expensive but it is in a very remote but gorgeous region so the costs can probably be justified. This was my second stay here in... More

I have just had an amazing and relaxing 2 night stay at the beautiful Star Hotel in Walhalla. Michael and Russell are wonderful hosts and Michael the chef does a scrumptious Salmon with capers and the Duck looked yummy too. The bedroom was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Heating via wall panel and/or inverter ensured the room was warm and... More

Stayed at Walhalla recently. Nothing much changed apart from the excellent STAR hotel that wasn't there when I last visited about 25 years ago! Excellent large rooms (we had one upstairs) with high ceilings, heater plus aircon, small fridge and free tea/coffee and biscuits. Narrow gauge railway down to the Thomson River is a must visit (former "Puffing Billy" style... More

Thank you for your review. I'm sure staying at the Star would have been very different to 25 years ago. You would have needed a tent in those days as there wasn't any accommodation in town. A ride on the railway is a must [OK, I'm a little biased as I'm the President] and just spending time taking in the... More

We recently stayed 2 nights on what is said to be Walhalla's busiest weekend for a long time. The Star Hotel was fabulous! The owners are lovely blokes who know everything about the town and the local area and were happy to assist travellers with all sorts of advice. We had an upstairs room at the back òf the building...spacious,... More

Thank you for your review. Yes Easter is pretty full-on in Walhalla…the Star Hotel however provides a nice source of tranquility from the crowds outside. Even on the busiest weekend on the year it was still quiet. So glad you enjoyed our meals and that your entire stay with us was a most enjoyable one. Russell and I look forward... More
