My husband and I stayed at Northstar for one night but could of stayed longer. We found the room very tidy, spacious and with lovely modern decor. The complex is very quiet even on a Saturday night with a restaurant/pub at the front. The layout of the Superior Unit is wonderful with the room divider which creates zones to chill...

Turned up, very last minute on a busy night (rugby game), big campervans, but lady at the front (Shirley) was still very accommodating. Went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable. Very child friendly, spacious rooms. Couldn't be happier with how we were treated and how the rooms were. Thanks Shirley!

Stayed here in February for work. Rooms are a generous size and include a lounge area to watch TV rather than having to lye on a bed. Nice and quiet and modern. Restaurant downstairs is also very nice and great food. Would definitely recommend

We had a very enjoyable stay here, the rooms were excellent and the staff welcoming and friendly. As we traveled as two families our two rooms had a joining doorway which was happily unlocked by the staff which made our stay that little more convenient.
