Star of the Sea Terrigal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 December 2011

I was privileged to celebrate my 80th Birthday at The Star of the Sea Resort, Terrigal -

an absolutely amazing experience. Bob the Boss was so helpful and obliging, nothing a

trouble to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing. We spent three nights in the luxurious

pent-house apartment, stunning views from every angle. It is truly an amazing property,

with perfect beach location. This resort provides excellent recreational facilities.

We had sixty guests for Celebration Drinks (all of whom were blown away by all of the above).It is incredible the size of the apartment, our guests had a most enjoyable time and I had the Best Birthday ever, thanks to my family and the Star of the Sea Resort.

the hotel management should be thankful for its stunning location, close proximity to everything
& views because these are the hotels only redeeming qualities.
The staff were incredibly rude & judgmental, discriminatory to us based purely on our ages. we were not noisy, broke no rules, left our apartment spotless yet were still mistreated based on our age as teenagers.
I would not recommend the hotel to anyone because of this & found the staff extremely judgmental, inhospitable & all-round rude.

Thank you for your review of Star of the Sea. We are disappointed that you felt that our staff were rude, judgemental and inhospitable to your group. If you read our other reviews this is not a common trend and in fact we have a reputation for being extremely friendly becuase that is the way we are. Possibly you have interpreted the introduction of reasonably strist self discipline rules for what you consider to be rudeness.
Unfortunately you were a group that stayed during the "schoolies'' period and therefore we have to respond to young people with very clear instructions on behaviour, respect to the apartments and other guests. As a general rule we don't take Schoolie groups on the basis that we have been let down in the past by poor behaviour.
We are very proud of our reputation of being a family friendly environment and for this we do have to apply a guideline for young groups to follow.
We would like to sincerely apologise to your group for any ill feeling and thank you for behaving in an appropriate manner whilst staying here.

Excellent facilities, spacious apartments, views & good service in a great location...what more could you ask for! Great for families with 3 pools to choose from and just a short walk to the beach & Terrigal attractions. Highly recommend.

The other reviews for this apartment hotel sum up the excellent facilities well. We stayed during an extremely wet weekend in October and were so glad we booked, as the views of the stormy sea, the indoor pool and the space & comfort in the apartment all made up for the bad weather. The owners were always cheerful and helpful. We recommend Cafe Zanzibar for breakfast - fabulous pancakes & bacon, about 3 mins walk if you take the short cut through the garden at the rear of the apartments, which ends at a gate at the rear of the Crowne Plaza with all the restaurants and shops just beyond.
