We had booked but on observing the rooms and facilities, decided against. Not suitable for people with disabilities. The first floor is up three flights of stairs. Not all rooms have showers and baths not equipped properly with grips etc. Overall shabby but greeted warmly enough. But the price would suit some travellers. We decided not to stay and move... More

Yes, our room was small and the furniture had seen better days but the cleanliness more than made up for it. The welcome was one of the warmest we have had for a long time. The food was not to my liking so we got to choose from the bar menu. Kelly the waitress couldn’t have been any nicer. The... More

I AM REALLY HARD TO PLEASE!!!!!!! This hotel pleased me a great deal. Warm welcome on arrival, even ensuring that my fussy eater husband had a personalised menu choice. Spotless room clean fluffy towels each day, comfy beds, home cooked tasty food and cheery helpful staff. Also free wifi! What do some folk want???? We had a really enjoyable stay.... More

What a shame - things never change for the better - they used to serve a 3 course sunday roast for a good price - they make the profits on drinks and coffees - but all gone now - and a quadrupled priced menu - with little on offer - packet ham sandwiches ! for nearly £7 - joke -... More

Just back from the STAR and had a great time. I have been reading other ratings and I wonder if it is the same hotel. To say the manager is rude and abrupt is utter rubbish, my husband went and asked Mike if he could sort the T.V. in the room and he came right over and had it working... More

We had a two night stay at this comfortable hotel. Yes it could do with a refurbishment but the rooms were clean & beds comfy. The staff are excellent, very efficient and friendly too. Food was good. Excellent value.

We have stayed here several times and have always enjoyed our stay. However, this time we were a bit disappointed! The first room we were given had an old bath but no shower, the room was not clean, the bed was very "worn out" and the decor was poor. However, when we complained, we were swiftly moved to another room... More

The rooms were neutral in their decor which was relieving due to the aged hotel decor , however the star shone in it's staff and food. The staff went above and beyond and the food was beyond belief. If you are planning lots of day trips and just need breakfast and dinner and a room to chill/sleep in I would... More

Having stayed in star a few times over the years was not impressed this time. The food was ok but very limited menu so we had a bar meal and were given 2 sheets of A4 paper stapled together and stained. The person serving breakfast was wearing jeans and jumper. There was no one on reception in the evenings for... More

Have just recently returned from a brilliant weekend at the Star and would like to say a huge thank you to all of the staff that made our weekend so perfect. Upon arrival at the hotel we were greeted by the very friendly and professional manageress who made us feel right at home straightaway. We were surprised to find the... More
