Launceston very quiet on a Monday night and lots of places to eat not open. So ended up at the Star Bar. Place was almost empty, but staff were very friendly and welcoming, beer was good and food was surprisingly good. Mushroom Bruschetta was especially tasty, steak cooked nicely, tasty veg and excellent mash. Would definitely recommend and eat there again.

The worst place I have ever stayed! The room was hotter than a sauna and they don’t have even a fan. When we arrived was 38 degrees and during the night was 25, but inside the room was deffo hotter. Our windows were in front of a car park where young people where drinking, swearing , using drugs and burnouts with cars the whole night until 3:53am!!!! At 1:30am a girl and 3 guys started to scream because one of them has a GUN! they were about 50people partying with non stop. They just stopped after one of the guys get really bad injury crashing in another car in one of these burnouts. It was INSANE!!!! The showers where super low and the water was weak and going everywhere. I can’t explain this experience. I wouldn’t recommended this hotel not even for my enemy. After travel 22 countries and stayed in a few different hotels, including Australia, this is definitely the worst one EVER!

I was claustrophobic all night. Couldn't open windows- just a sealed up box! The bed was like a concrete block! Room 5! No reading lamp. Shower spurting in many directions - you need to be a contortionist to shower! No parking available - misleading icon on Booking.com! Dreadful, dreadful, dreadful!!!

Dined at The Star Bar today, probably won't return. One of the two waitresses couldn't even manage a smile the whole time we were there. Asked For a cloth to clean the table and seat, didn't even get acknowledge she just grabbed the cloth and walked off and done it, sorry we were such an inconvenience For the cost of the food it was very average. Kids drinks full of ice and very little cordial actually in it. Not approachabke staff to be able to bring any of this up with. Very disappointed and have heard similar, unlikely to return.
