This hotel is in incredibly shabby condition - peeling paint everywhere, broken fittings, old stained carpet and a general dingy feeling to all of the shared spaces. It has the feel of a cheap flophouse. Either the owner doesn't care about this place or they can't afford to fix it - either is a good reason to avoid the place.
The room itself (single with en-suite) was not particularly clean - one of the double glazed windows was broken and full of dirty orange water - there was a great deal of black mould in the bathroom - the bed was broken and there were no lampshades on the wall lamps (which meant that you couldn't really use them).
The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast wasn't terrible - but, overall, the experience was pretty dreadful.
I have stayed in quite a few hotels in Southampton and I have to say that The Star was one of the worst at any price - and certainly the very worst at this price point. There are far better places and, had I arrived earlier and been staying longer than one night, I would almost certainly have checked out and gone somewhere else.
