Don’t, just done go there

We were excited about our stay at The Grand Star. But that was short lived. This entire place is a sh^t show. When booking we enquired about parking as it had been mentioned to be difficult. Yes valet parking is always available was the response from the bookings lady.
It had been a big day, a five hour drive and we arrived to find valet parking was full. If you’ve rented out the rooms, surely you allocated the parking. The car park itself is a total nightmare. Whilst we were in the hotel car park we were in fact parked a good 500 metres or more from the reception desk which could only be reached through a rabbit warren of elevators and stairs. The reception staff were at least pleasant if not misguiding. Join our rewards program for free parking! Remember we’ve paid $374 for a basic motel room which apparently doesn’t come with parking! You’re shi^ting me right!
Our room was on the tenth floor. High up enough to be away from the casino noise one would think but not necessarily so. The crying baby at 11:00pm was also not appreciated and frighteningly loud considering we are staying in a five star establishment that hasn’t mastered sound proofing!
The rooms are nice, if not poorly planed. No mini bar, a malfunctioning coffee machine, a rain fall shower that seemed to get just as much water outside the shower as in it. Want to watch a movie, no problem, that’s another $19, your kidding me, right? Frankly by this point I’m ready to leave and demand a refund but our friends are here so I calm myself and go to dinner. We all joined the rewards program and yes there was some discounts off food but it was overpriced and underwhelming anyway.
The bed was at least comfortable and the fancy electric blind almost made me feel like we were getting value for money, sadly that feeling didn’t last.
Checking out we are charged the $20 parking fee even though we protest and waive our rewards program cards about.
Disappointed we leave and make the trek back to the car. Not once did we receive any help with our bags. And better yet as we make our way into the elevator we are met with 3 elderly ladies all in the 80’s struggling with a hotel luggage trolley alone. Apparently valet parking was still full.
It’s a sh^t show and a poorly organised one at that.
There is way better value for money to be had and I wish we’d chosen it. Never again Star not so Grand!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Star Grand Gold Coast. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The bed and pillows are very comfortable. Nice big TV with Foxtel, free high speed internet. a table and chairs plus a desk. A beautiful big bathroom. The only negative I would give is the long queue to check in.

I have stayed here countless times being a gold member the service is hit and miss no one came to assist when dropping off bags plenty of staff but no one interested in coming to help with a wheelchair I had to take my bags up to valet. Check-in today was quick and was allocated a room on the 5th floor there lowest level rooms never stayed this low when you open the curtain view of the roof and air conditioner and the garden bed full of weeds. The rooms though are very nice and one of the most comfortable beds. We checked in ask for the bags to be brought up that was at 1pm got into the room after playing at the casino and dinner not there at 9pm. But brought them up after ringing. Food was good and great value at the food quarter. Check out was very quick

Stayed for a night on a discounted rates as a Star Club member. The deal made it worthwhile for a night out, with dinner, entertainment and a few drinks without the worry of travelling home or trying to catch an Uber or the like.
The room was a standard twin room that offered a great level of quality and opulence. The beds were really comfortable to go with the room that was spacious and gave a feeling of quality. Didn’t get the chance to use the gym or pool area, but these would be an added bonus to use during an overnight stay.
Become a star club member and you will be entitled to a discount, or the occasional special price, plus will include free parking.

Every section of The Star were very welcoming and professional.

Our room was comfortable and everything that you needed was provided.

A big shout out to the cleaning staff - our room was serviced daily at a high standard - the quiet achievers.

Parking was easy - the reception and conceriage arranged for number plate recognition was such a breeze.

It’s a bonus to have Pacific Fair Shopping Fair next door.

The Japanese restaurant was the highlight - very very good.

The Harvest Restaurant was a little under par but overall it delivered the standard requirements.

Thank you for a lovely stay - will certainly return.

Room tip: Make sure you converse with reception about parking.

We had 3 days stay at The STAR GRAND last weekend Sat 25th Sun 26 and Mon 27 March with a very good deal thru our STAR CLUB membership and everything went perfectly. After reading some reviews we were a little worried about some things, but all went SO GOOD. Now firstly car parking was easy we had a bit of an idea where to go and it was a breeze, then to reception, - Now we were early and the only ones there and couldn't have asked for a better outcome. MIKAELER on reception was great sorting out parking and our room, we had a Corner Balcony Deluxe King room, and it was really nice big enough for 2 people for a few days bigger and better than we thought, - little nook for tea n coffee- bathroom more than adequate. Nice view from balcony 11th floor,- some views from different rooms may not be as good. Now to the pool, it was excellent- not busy so we had heaps of sun lounges the spa and all amenities to satisfy ourselves. The LIFTS were amazing 5 working all the time no waiting and so quick... All in All the STAR GRAND was absolutely brilliant for our ANNIVERSERY GETAWAY. - THANK YOU to Mangement and staff and we will go back. We also went to see BEAUTIFUL the Carole King show and it was the icing on the cake. SO THANKS AGAIN.
