Star Hotel Macksville

16 River Street Macksville NSW 2447

Welcome to the Star Hotel! Even before stepping inside, visitors can see the Star Hotel is a special place. Built in 1885, the impressive facade is the first thing you notice.

Now after extensive renovations and refurbishment by its owners, the Partridge family, it now also features a fantastic ambiance inside.
The Hotel also has its own pontoon & jetty making it a popular stop for boaties and Houseboats.

The Partridge family has a starring role in Hotel refurbishment, having been involved in sucessfully renovations not only this Hotel, but also the Federal Hotel in Bellingen, in which they still have an interest ,the Coast Hotel in Coffs Harbour, hotels in Kempsey, Nambucca Heads, Armidale and more recently Ballina.

We originally bought the Star Hotel in december 2001 with partner Steve McEvoy and sold a lease to Peter and Sally Williams in 2003. In September last year, we bought the lease back and began transforming the Star into a beautiful Family Hotel & were really excited to see it completed Jenny said.

Jenny and her husband John now own the Star in partnership with sons Ben and Adam. From top to bottom, the Hotel has a new look, its much more open and inviting, with a variety of seating options for example banquette seating in the bistro adjacent a new "picture window"with a fern filled courtyard outlook.

The Beer Garden has, not been overlooked either. It now seats 50 people comfortably and features a "pavilion style" roof that compliments the Hotel beautifully and makes for year round use of this area. The beer garden also has great views of the Nambucca Riverand with a Tiny Tots play area it's now a great spot for family functions and other special events Jenny said.

Finally, the magnificient verandahs offer sweeping views up and down the Nambucca River, with the upstairs verandah comfortably seating 60, plus a delightful adjoining lounge for that quiet cocktail . The upstairs verandah is accessed via new sweeping staircase and with new sound and lighting, and decor this is a fantastic area for your next lunch or dinner outing and should be considered for that special function. Our son Adam and his bride Kendall, chose this area to be married on Valentine's day.
