Will definitely be back agin! Went for dinner and a couple of drinks. Meals were HUGE but tasty and fresh also. Not what I was expecting from a local country pub, far surpassed my expectations. Will try the specials next time, went the fish this time, and it was superb. Service was a little slow, but the friendly service and... More

Four of us booked a meal after hearing rave reviews about the Tuesday night special of ribs. We were not disappointed, they were the best I've tasted. We had originally booked the upstairs verandah until we learned that we would have to queue for our meals, collect them, and take them, and our meals up a very wide and steep... More

The booking process was simply and the staff friendly and helpful. Hubby and I stayed here overnight on our way from Gold Coast to the Hunter Valley. We arrived late but were given easy instructions on how to enter after hours. No bathroom in the room but the bathrooms were close by and clean as was the room which was... More

Lady at eatery could not add, paid $200 on credit card for meal was $100 she blamed the calculator then gave me $60 back saying she could not reverse funds. I believe she has done this before. She pocket $40. Dodgy!!!!!! Meal was good tho, shame about the staff.

A smallish, windowless double room without air and the small vent windows above the door are nailed shut; and a walk to the toilet down the hall during the night, for a wee wee and I could only see two showers there; for $95 a night. Nope, not for me.

Stopped in for one night a d if you happy to share a bathroom - which were clean and accessible - it was fine. Comfortable beds and friendly staff. A little noisy from trucks if a light sleeper. In the pub good choice of quality meals and Mike a legend.

I'm a Macksville local and have eaten here several times. It is not appealing in the slightest. That may be due to me dietary requirements (many friends enjoy eating here) but I've never had a good meal. It's something I tolerate. As a vegetarian my choices are limited to chips, wedges and the occasional soggy seasonal salad (when it's without... More

The food is fresh and delicious. The hotel is across the street from the river. The hotel has been refurbished and very cheap and clean place to stay. John and Jenny run the small restaurant with a great menu. The seafood is fresh and local. Whether you need a long rest or just a short repast, can highly recommend.

Driving from Sydney to Brisbane I needed a place to stop and rest overnight. Ironically, the failure of another website that actually specialise in BnB brought me back here where I found the Star Hotel. The Star Hotel is located perfectly along the road to Brisbane and after a long 6hr drive it's nice to find a place to relax... More
