We came here and sat chatting with the locals. We had a few drinks and some dinner which was delicious and plentiful. The staff were good and the place had a really good energy. We played some juke box music and enjoyed the atmosphere.

An enjoyable night at a rustic country pub where the decor suits the local setting! We were a large group and the food was bought to our table at the same time by friendly staff ! We had small children who had hotel toys to play with and the staff were very accomodating considering it was a very busy night!...

Stayed 2 nights and it's a top spot. The renovation is fantastic. Enjoyed a beer at the street bar and views of Mt Remarkable. First night we did a wine tasting. Both nights had a great meal. Small kitchen with kettle toaster fridge etc where you get own brekky. Rooms good with nice bathrooms. Toni, the young lady who runs...

My husband and I spent two nights at the North Star in October. We couldn't decide on accommodation so we stayed one night in the green truck and one night in the hotel - both were great. The truck was a fun, unique experience and the space was much bigger than I expected. The furnishings were rustic but that was...

Returned to this place after a reasonable meal a many years ago. Probably one of the most lack lustre meals my husband and i have ever had, but given the size of the town there are few options. Waitress had 3 other tables of 4 and 2 people to serve on a Thursday. Looked so unimpressed and not welcoming at...

This pub has a lovely feel. In fact, the whole area does. The drive from Pt Wakefield to Melrose was a trip through South Australian history. Time has stopped in some if these lovely old country towns, proudly displaying their colonial heritage through tired but resilient architecture. It is scenery for the soul, with rolling green fields dotted by sheep...

Stayed overnight because I didn't want to set up camp in the pouring rain! The room was spotless, fantastic showers and the bar/restaurant area was very warm, surprising given the size. The service was very friendly but not overbearing and the food delicious. Some fun looking rooms stuck to the back of trucks out the back. Suitably priced room and...

What a nice surprise! Great hotel in the beautiful Melrose. I went for work and hosted a work function with 20 people, stayed in one of the rooms in the main building and ate in the hotel. I have nothing but positive feedback. The rooms appear to have been recently refurbished and were lovely - great bathroom), there was a...

What a great pub hotel. We stayed in one of the 'trucks' out the back - very cosy and well-appointed 'houses' mounted onto the back of an old truck. I'm already planning another trip back there to stay for more than one night. Friendly staff too. It was a cold weekend but the sun warmed up the truck during the...
