Location was hard to get into due to the road layout, but got there in the end. Room very clean and spacious. Choice of pillows hard or soft. Check in and out quick and easy. Good help yourself breakfast, but the bar menu in the evening limited to choice.

Marooned in a post industrial wasteland surrounded by dual carriageways and rather dirty looking canals this is not a hotel for a romantic getaway or for views of the rolling hills and dales. However for a clean, reasonably priced short stay with convenient motorway access and a decent breakfast and wi-fi in the price it was fine. Clean room, decent... More

This hotel is at the very bottom of the IHG Brand standard. Check in is a bit shambolic, the restaurant is tired and the food is basic to say the least. The real issue is the noise in the rooms, my window would not shut which led to some road noise, but the sound insulation between rooms is so poor... More

Room was nice, although they have a separate area for smokers the door was left open at the front and I think staff were smoking out there too, and the smoke was coming into the bar and lounge area, which started to get a bit pungent so we decided to go upstairs to our room and finish our drinks in...

As a frequent HIE guest I can frankly say that compared to recent stays, the Star City was quite a disappointment. The place is old and feels old. Tired furniture at the front desk; stained filthy carpeting throughout and one heck of a noisy elevator. Numerous splattted insects on walls and ceiling, cobwebs and spiders. Cracked groutwork on bathroom tiles,... More
