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

We stayed here for five nights over my son's wedding and family guests also stayed the night before and the night of the wedding. The rooms were lovely with fresh linen and plenty of hot water. Breakfast was excellent and set us up each day. The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble and I am very... More

My partner and I took our mothers to The Starr for Mother's Day. It was busy and for that reason the service was not quite up to its normal standard. We had to get up a couple of times to pour the wine. However, the rest of the service was good, as was the food as usual. A good ambience... More

I do not usually leave feedback, however we booked a room at the Starr and it was an excellent place to stay. Room was clean, contemporary and had everything you would need. Staff were helpful and friendly and the breakfast was one of the best we have had along with great service.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Starr first opened it's doors in the 15th century as a coaching in on the Suffolk to London route. In the court yard we have converted the old stable block into a comfortable 8 bedroom hotel all with en-suit bathrooms & free WI-FI. Our first class locally sourced breakfast is served in the restaurant where you sit surrounded by the exposed oak beams of the original inn.The Starr is only 15 minutes drive from Stansted airport making in the ideal place for that overnight stop or short break. ... more   less
