This hotel is convienent in its location, being right next to the ferry terminal. But I would not recommend it if you are looking to stay for a few days in the town. It is very old. Decor is dated. This property could definitely use a face lift. It was what I would call only semi-clean. We found a few hairs in the bathroom and there was something in the sink. It was so late when we checked in that we didn't even bother to mention it. They offered a buffet in the evening for about $18 and the only good thing about it was the pie for desset. Way over priced. And, it's unfortunate that during high season, because of their location, they can charge $160 a night. It certinally is not worth it. I am a Sales Manager for a 4 1/2 star hotel... believe me when I say the only reason we chose to stay there was because we arrived on the ferry at 2am and did not want to be on the highway at that time. If we had our time back we would have drove the 15min to Sydney and stayed at one of the nicer hotels. Also, the front desk was quite slow going. When you have guests checking in so late at night, we just want you to take our credit card and issue our key. There was no urgency to get the guests settled at all. We found the same to be true at check out. They seem to still use the old manual way of pre-authorizing the guest credit card and settling it at check out. Don't expect to find the convienent express check out at this hotel. If in the area again, we will not choose the North Star Inn.
