Our eight day stay during July and August 2005 was arranged to attend our Nephews wedding at All Saint's in Staplehurst. The Star & Eagle was recommended by our Nephew and his intended. Our arrival was warmly and efficiently handled and assisted to our room #10 through an amazing series of corridors reflecting the 400 years of required reconstructions. We were aware that the Inn was located on the only highway through Goudhurst so the view from our window was not a surprise. A part of our entertainment was watching the lorries trying to navigate the 90 degree turn just in front of the Inn although they were warned to take an alternate route because of that turn. Our travels throughout England, Scotland and Wales over the last 40 years has given us experiences most travellers would shun. I was surprised to read the complaints outlined in some of the other reviews. They were very reminiscent of a 'Faulty Towers' episode in which an American and his wife expected treatment only provided by The Dorchester in the West End, not a 400 year old Inn in a Kent village. I was also surprised that the complaints were all from UK locals. We had many meals at the hotel and entertained several guests during our stay and were all completely satisfied with the food and service. A pre-wedding dinner for about 30 people was handled efficiently and the food was exceptional. Prior to writing critical reviews of a facility, people should recognize the facility for what it is, not for what they would like it to be. The Star & Eagle is a significant part of English history and should be viewed in that light.
