When our schedule permitted an overnight in the charming but understated village of Great Dunmow, we picked The Starr because it had a room available. It turned out to be a delightful choice, with a large, clean and well-decorated room and an excellent English breakfast. Hope to return someday.

Booked the Starr last Saturday having been totally let down by another hotel. Arrived late on the Saturday eveing but had telephoned and booked the restaurant. Checked into our room, very nicely decorated, mirrored furniture gave it a real light shiney feel. Large bathroom again nicely done. Spotlessly clean with nice fluffy towels. Off to eat, 3 gin and tonics... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Starr for one night after a local wedding. The staff could not have been more accommodating - I was late, and they arranged for the key to be placed in a safe for me to access. The room was immaculate, and the breakfast was superb. All in all - I am delighted... More

We stayed at The Starr for one night to attend a party nearby. The room was spotless and stylish. We all met up in the bar before we left and the service was excellent. Good choice at breakfast and there was no problem with us all eating together. Lovely, friendly staff. Would certainly recommend and visit again.

For GBP65 b&b for a nice quiet room with a good bed, free parking and pleasant breakfast I will certainly be back. Only 10-15 mins drive to Stansted. Minor complaints are a noisy plumbing system and a long wait for breakfast (only 3 people at breakfast).

We stayed at The Starr for two nights to attend a wedding so only had dinner on one night. We prefer small hotels rather than the impersonal big chains. When we booked we did not want a ground floor room. We were told none upstairs was available. A few minutes later we received a call to say they could accommodate... More

we go to the starr a lot and will go again as we like the people, rooms, breakfast and the cheese - however the chef had an off day as Jane's starters was too fatty and my steak was over cooked. the prices are on the high side so we do expect the best.

Stumbled upon this small hotel/restaurant today - only ten minutes from Stansted Airport. Located in an old coaching inn in the small market town of Dunmow. Rooms are (or my room was) well furnished and spotlessly clean. Free WiFi and parking available. Unfortunately i did not have time to taste the food (including breakfast) but i am guessing it was...

We arrived at 8.30pm after a long day and the welcome was warm. We had booked a twin room and the receptionist took us to us a double but immediately found another to our requirements. The room was well laid out, nicely decorated, very clean and airy, the towels were large and fluffy, the shower pressure was good. What let... More
