This place could have been a 5 on some counts, a 3 on others. Lovely spot at the top of the village next to the church. I think on a bright summers day there would be gorgeous views across the surrounding countryside. I would echo what other reviewers have said that the staff are really helpful and service is excellent. The food was fine. My room had a very comfortable bed, but was a little dated. It was also a little noisy on the evening and from the boiler/generator on the morning - i was up early, so this wasn't a problem.

I cannot rate the Star and Eagle highly enough..... we have been looked after so well during our stay, the staff are wonderful.. so friendly and helpful, nothing has been too much trouble to them. The food is delicious and very well presented. My room was lovely and everything was very clean and well looked after.

Would definitely stay here again... be it for business reasons or a personal holiday.

Stayed here over Christmas break 2013, after recommendations by friends in Kent.On arrival we parked out front,and when we tried to bring cases in the front door to reception desk the door was locked ,so we were told to use the bar entrance and walk through eating area.As the dining area was busy it was awkward getting past tables with our small cases and suit bags and one table near the door kept tutting! When we got to the room, the standard of the bathroom was very poor cracked tiles to the bath and dusty carpeting.Breakfast was good and waitress very nice. Won't be recommending or using again.

We recently stayed at the hotel for one night. First of all, let me say that the staff knocked themselves out to be helpful. No request was too much. This is very special in a world of hotels that have staff members unwilling or not encouraged to engage with the guests and take responsibility for making their stays memorable. Our room was spacious, but the furnishings were tired and the room dusty. The bathroom was poorly laid out for ease of use and lighting throughout the bath and bed rooms was poor. The bed was reasonably comfortable. Breakfast was very nice.
With such a fine staff, it seems that it would be worthwhile to pour a bit of money into upgrading the rooms to a new level of comfort and attractiveness. Your customers would thank you!
Don't miss the church next door for more about the story of the 'Hawkhurst Gang'!

The Star and Eagle has indoubtedly some great vantage points: the location at the top of a beautiful historic village, right next to the village church, is clearly charming and so is the historic Inn itself. We stayed for two nights and had a lovely room at the back with good views of the countryside. Must say that the bathroom should have been cleaner. Sleep quality was good. We feared the restaurant and pub noise, but when dinnertime is over, the place turns quiet. We also had dinner on both nights, which was rather average and too expensive for the quality offered. There are other dining options in town and a nice local pub.

We realy liked our stay in the star and eagle. Very old builing with a lot of charme. Very pleasant staff and very good food. A good spot to for to stay een view nights of for a stop over. Also a nice bar where we have had the diner. The duvet was much too thick for the summer, so it was very warm te sleep. Wifi didn't work in room nr. 1

Room Tip: Good food!

A very pleasant stay in a quaint central village hotel. The welcome was both friendly and very helpful. The room very clean and amazingly quiet when considering that the main A road and a very difficult and tricky bend, particularly for large trailers and lorries, right outside.

Access to the room was certainly as quirky as previous reports but really not a problem, unless you have a bad back, and learn very quickly where the means and low doors are!!
