A very clean, comfortable hotel. Everyone from the night porter to reception staff to those who served in the restaurant could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. This was a business trip but will definitely stay again when in the area, and hope to take my wife there too.

Where to start - this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, never ever again!! Filthy, dated and all the downstairs areas smelt of the gents toilets - disgusting. The staff (with one exception - the receptionist) were either very rude (breakfast) or drunk (serving in the bar). I requested quiet rooms and we were above the function... More

We have stayed at this hotel about 5/6 times before over the past few years, but still come back for more, as it offers value for money. We paid £75 for a double room, which included a cooked breakfast. Good location overlooking the river, and close to the town centre. One of the downsides is the noise of the traffic... More

My wife and I stayed at the Star on a bed and breakfast rate (£75.00 per Night) over the first weekend in August. We were given a nice twin room on the second floor. First thing to say is the old fashioned lift is an experience in its self, real old world probably pre-war I’d say but with a real... More

Stayed for a weekend away. The room was way over priced and not what we paid for or what we were expecting. Very noisy and you can hear every step people take because of the creaky floorboards. Room was basic, small and wasn't overly clean either. We paid for a double suite at 80 quid a night and got a... More

As a rail worker, I work nights and if the company wasn't paying, I would have walked out. First problem when returning from our night shift the night porter disappeared and we were stuck outside for 1h30m, then cleaners ignored my DO NOT DISTURB sign on my door, despite it being in 10 languages and tried to enter my room...

Stayed 2 nights at the Star last week with friends. 1st night we had a superior room at the front of hotel. Room was very spacious & bathroom large & well equiped. Hotel dates back to 17th century & supposed to be haunted - no ghosts this time. Due to a problem with the bike we stayed a 2nd night... More
