Here at The Star, we care about each guest that walks through our doors, and as always, your health and safety is important to us. The property has devised a site specific plan to ensure the hotel continues to operate safely which means some of our services have slightly changed.

 

You will notice additional hand sanitiser stations around the property as well as signage requesting that you maintain social distancing and practice good hygiene at all times.

 

We encourage you to take a little time to read through this compendium to ensure you are making the most of our services available to you.

 

Throughout this compendium you will find information on the following:

• Hotel services • Housekeeping services • Health facilities • In room amenities
• Restaurants and Bars • Mini Bar Menu • In Room Dining Menu • Table for 2 dining experience

 

For more information about what’s on during your stay, visit thestargoldcoast.com.au or speak with one of our team members.

Warm Regards, The Darling Team
