The staff were absolutely nice and helpful. The room was ok, but full of small little things that didn't work. Must avoid pub downstairs. The whole downstairs is smelly and not clean. But restaurant on first floor is nicer.

Went here for the carvery, the atmosphere in the room was dark and lit and dressed like a wedding reception... I couldn't even see my plate properly. The carvery food looked nice, but terribly presented, bringing mash potato out in a ice cream tub? No roast potatoes? The veg looked nice but were really hard, all tasted bland. The chef was rude as well and just didn't seem like he wanted to be there! The poor bar girl was on her first day with hardly any supervision so it took a long while to get drinks (no fault of her own). The dessert portion was tiny. Walking back out to the entrance it smelt of cigarette smoke really bad, it was unappealing, wouldn't return

I stayed at the star hotel with my boyfriend. The hotel was clean and tidy. The staff were so humble and delivered great customer service. Our room was simply beautiful and most importantly clean. Our room had a Jacuzzi and it worked a treat. The hotel has a boutique feel to it. Strongly recommend!!

We organised a birthday party at The Star Hotel. Lots of family members and friends we hadn't seen for years, so expectations were high. Emma, the delightful Manager, was a dream to deal with, very friendly and made everything so easy. We had our party in a lovely spacious function room, with a well stocked bar. The food was excellent, fresh and plenty of it too, and for a very good price. Bar staff were polite and helpful. All in all a really good day. Will now recommend our friends to have future parties at this great historic establishment, under the helpful assistance of Emma and her staff, Ten out of ten.
