Fortunately with work,as a wee treat, I get an experience, each quarter, to treat myself to. And this time round, I chose The Star. I brought with me my girlfriend (saturday 28th december). We had lunch, stayed overnight (room 9) and also had dinner.
I myself work within the industry, I am a Food & Beverage Manager for a large UK hotel brand and since graduating at University, the whole foodie scene has hit my heart.
I have to say it, I found The Star absoluetely enchanting. A truly magnificent experience. The bar (the pub side of the dining experience) is like a film set. It is as if you had to design the perfect country pub! Good ales are on offer (the only thing that really interests me!) and my girlfriend went down the wine list. Slowly but surely.
The restaurant was truly wonderful. We both had six courses over the two meals - got to say, my favourite was the ox cheek, whilst my girlfriend loved the goose starter - she had it twice. All is fantastically well priced. The staff were attentitive, yet stand off ish. Just how I like it. Nothing potentious. We drank the night away (my girlfriend goes for the wine, but it was very well priced, cheaper than my hotel!), had a few in the bar, and then finished up at the honesty bar back in the accommodation quarters (this was so quaint, absolutely wonderful idea).
The accommodation was brilliant. The room was massive, which justified its nightly rate, and was cosy and beautifully designed (it also had a sofa bed, next time I am bringing mates!). Whilst the chill out sofa areas are brilliant (we were in a drunken snooze on the sofas by this point!)
Overall, a truly fantastic experience. I'll be back. I have one more quarter to treat myself from work and well, why not go back to where I had a terrific time. Only downside was forgetting to buy the chefs book, but i'm sure I can pick that up online..
I understand the importance of TripAdvisor from working in hotels, hence why I felt it of such great importance to pass on my experience. Readers, it is as simple as this - book into The Star!
