    They upgraded me to a suite, and that was fantastic. Just such a shame that I had no one to share it with me on this trip.

    location and easy access to the Lyrics Theatre

    not worth the price I paid for

  • Older travelers

    It was a good representation of a 5 star Hotel although very price high.

    At breakfast at No.80 to serve your own coffee from a machine... A big let down on the Astral room

    The view of the city skyline was magnificent. Pool was great, open until 9pm with plenty of sunchairs to relax on. The buffet breakfast which was included in our $249 was excellent value for money, huge choice from basic cereal to having an omlette cooked to your liking. I stayed with my 10 yr old daughter as a treat and we both were not disappointed. Even the concierge in the lobby were so attentive, will definately make a return visit to Star City

  • Family with children

    The room was very comfortable and the buffet breakfast lovely and extensive choice

    The staff originally placed me in a room with Pyrmont views, when I had paid for a city skyline view. However, when I pointed out the error, they recitfied this very quickly

    Excellent hotel - the room itself wasn't anything extra special - but it was very comfortable and loved the pillow menu. The casino was fab and the restaurants were excellent and very good value - would definately go back

    Breakfast in the Garden Buffet and a staff member called William picking up the empty plates. Also the porter on arrival (did not get his name, who was most helpful.

    Cost of a glass of white wine in the Lounge Lobby was expensive, particularly when the glass was only filled to about 1/3 of its capacity.

    Coffee lounge in the foyer was great, good selection of food to choose from even at 4.00pm in the afternoon.

    Pizza bar in the casino had dirty table tops and not enough seating.
