We do not guarantee sites:
Whilst every endeavour is made to secure particular sites for guests we reserve the right to move guests within the specified category or upgrade where necessary. Management reserves the right to relocate or change the site number/accommodation number after booking. You will be allocated the most appropriate site on check-in.
Check out time:
Check out time for both accommodation and sites is strictly 10am. Guests are not permitted to use the resort facilities past this time and are required to vacate the property. If you are intending to eat at Ripples after check out please use the visitor car parking area provided. Late departures up to 4pm are available subject to availability and an additional fee applies. Please note we will not consider late departures on Friday, Saturdays or during school holidays.
Check in time:
Check in time for Ensuite and Powered Sites is 12 noon. Check in time for Accommodation is 3pm. We need time to make your site & accommodation the best it can be for your arrival–please do not arrive earlier than the nominated check in time as parking is limited and we do not wish for you to be offended that entry to the resort may be refused.
North Star Holiday Resort reserves the right to request a pre-authorisation of a valid credit card upon arrival to cover any incidentals that may be incurred during your stay. You must provide a credit or debit card authorisation or imprint when you check-in for a security bond of $100. If you are paying by cash, you must provide a cash security bond of $100. North Star Holiday Resort may use this authorisation or cash security bond to cover incidental items incurred during your stay including (but not limited to) damage to your accommodation (including damage caused by smoking) or damage to any other part of the Resort, breakages, lost keys, non-return of TV cables, and cleaning charges in excess of the level of cleaning normally required, as well as accommodation charges (including charges for a late checkout, or if you leave before the date to which you have booked). You should contact your credit or debit card issuer for information on how providing a credit or debit card authorisation will affect the available funds balance or spending limit associated with your credit or debit card.
As a registered guest of the North Star Holiday Resort you will be issued with a wrist band to wear during your stay. This provides FREE access to our fantastic water park “Sammy’s Adventure Lagoon”, the kids club “Neptune’s Castle” and our other Resort facilities. For our guests who have family or friends visit, please see below for our Day Visitor Policy.
Day Visitor Policy (applicable to in-house guests only):
If you wish to have day visitors join you at your site or in your accommodation for the day you are welcome to do so, however if your guests wish to use the resort facilities you will need to register them with front reception as a DAY guest, so a wristband can be issued.
The number of DAY guests seeking to use the resort facilities is limited to no more than one visitor family per occupied site or cabin, with the size of that visitor family being no more than one set of parents and their children.
All registered DAY guests will be issued with a wristband which must be worn while in the resort. This identification wristband provides access to our wide range of facilities including Sammy’s Adventure Lagoon, Neptune’s Castle Kids Club and Seascape Leisure Centre (Adults only). The cost to our DAY guests is only $15.00 per person (excluding infants under 3 years). Wristbands must also be worn by spectators who choose to enter the Sammy’s Adventure Lagoon facility. All children under 11 years must be accompanied by an adult.
Cleaning & Damages:
By entering the Resort a guest agrees to leave their accommodation/site and any facilities used in sound, clean and tidy condition. If the cabin or site is found to be excessively dirty, the guest accepts they will be charged an excess cleaning fee of $60 per hour until clean. All damages, breakages or losses to the property of the Resort, including furniture and furnishings, are to be reported and paid for by the guest. Any faults or breakages discovered by the guest must be reported within one (1) hour of arrival or we may consider damages to be responsibility of the guest.
We receive numerous items of lost property which are left behind/found in common areas or within accommodation. Lost property will be held for a maximum of 2 months, after this time items will be donated to charity.
We do not take responsibility for any lost property and should you arrange for an item/s to be posted back to you it will be at the guests expense via COD.
All ensuite sites and some powered sites are artificially turfed. Whilst this will not hinder the set-up of your caravan, camper trailer or tent in any way, we do ask that you DO NOT use ‘STAR PEGS’ (either metal or plastic) whilst using these sites. The use of star pegs causes tearing of the material. Normal round pegs are absolutely fine to drive through this material. Do not sit anything hot on the artificial turf such as heat beads, hot plates etc. as these items can melt the surface. Such damages can incur a charge.
By entering our Resort, you and your child/ren consent to being photographed from time to time using the facilities for the purposes of being included in promotional material of the North Star Holiday Resort.
