This was the worst stay of our hike across the South Downs. Showers dribbled, toilet didn't flush, disclaimers were pasted all over the place - one warned of scalding shower, but neglected to say that there was NO cold water, hence the scalding shower. Our breakfast was laid on a disposable paper table cloth which had been re-used; we were... More

Myself and partner stayed at the Star Inn last weekend and was very pleased with our stay. The location was perfect and the accommodation was very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and the food was delicious. There was a wide variety for breakfast and our beef dish was spot on. We will be staying again!

Myself and my husband stayed at The Star for our anniversary. We were checked in by the lovely Zoe (lovely little irish lady) who made sure we knew everything we needed to know without sounding too scripted. The room we were in was a little dated and in need of some love but we were only using it as a... More

Dreadful. The room looked like it had been last decorated in the 80s peeling wall paper and a bed which listed like the titanic. On booking in we were talked over by an senior member of staff who was supposed to be training a younger member of staff. I can not see from our booking in where the friendliness of... More

This is the third year we have stayed at The Star and it seems to have lost a little of its lustre. The staff are as pleasant and friendly as ever and the bar and outside of the hotel is as charming as ever. However, the ensuite in our room needed a little TLC, as did some of the paintwork... More

What a charming hotel, bursting with character, and history. Martin checked us in and gave us one of the feature rooms. Very clean and everything you could possibly need in the room. We ate in the hotel restaurant and thought the food was really good. Breakfast was up there with the best I have ever had, excellent service and quality... More

The staff here are lovely and the room was lovely and clean. The beds were a little soft, but the room was comfortable, the bathroom spotless and the showers hot. The breakfast was good, with a good selection of cereal, fruit, toast, spreads and hot selection. All the staff in the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly. Unfortunately there is... More

We had a lovely 2 night stay last week. It was convenient for our trip to Glyndeborne, and set in a lovely village with good parking facilities! The staff are so friendly and make your stay so special! Even surprised the birthday boy with a fabulous cake! Will defiantly be back!
