This is great old style country accommodation. (The original hotel was built in the 1800s, but the present building dates from just 1999.) We had a large upstairs room with two large single beds made together, en suite, and balcony overlooking a stream and out to a wooded hillside. The rooms all had curious names: our's was called 'Fear Not'. The room was very nicely decorated with heating, air conditioning and a ceiling fan. The bed lighting was not strong enough for me to read comfortably. The bedside tables appeared to be made from small corrugated tanks - novel in an historic sort of way! There was also a sofa, a desk with lamp, a small fridge, a large mirror, but no pictures - surely a couple of nice historic photos would be in place here! The bathroom was smart with an enormous mirror, plenty of soaps, etc, and a sign asking guests to please conserve water. (There seemed to be plenty in the stream!) This meant that the shower was not such a great experience ... . Facilities for making tea and coffee were just outside the door, and shared by the half dozen upstairs rooms. There was no room TV, and I'm not sure one could even get any reception down in this valley. There was a charming and comfortable guest lounge downstairs with a fire, comfy chairs, and reading material. Our room had a CD player, and there were CDs in the lounge for general use. The accommodation was bed and breakfast and we had a very satisfying continental breakfast served in the hotel restaurant. Dinner was unavailable in the restaurant, at least during the week. Owner Michael was very friendly and helpful. This was a very pleasant and memorable stay.

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! The internet is limited too, so it's great "tiime out" destimation. 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
