Probably The City's Best Hotel At The Time!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 21, 2010

The Star is one of those classic English former coaching inns and in its heyday was probably one of the town's best hotels. The modern building retains much of its character with its double-doored archway leading into the courtyard, and what would have been the stable blocks, and a balconied and balustraded facade.

Internally the corridors, bedrooms and various function rooms wind higgledy-piggledy around the three corners of the square that the building forms around its central courtyard. Decor probably hasn't changed much since those days either except maybe a lick of paint, a bit of fresh wallpaper and the addition of en-suite facilities to the rooms.

That said though, there's nothing wrong with this hotel at all. It doesn't pretend to be all mod cons and the room prices reflect this. Staff are unaninmously helpful and friendly, the standard of housekeeping excellent and the beds are comfortable. Internet connection is only guaranteed available in public areas such as the bar or the little first floor residents lounge but works fine in these.

Unique Quality: The town centre location is excellent and the freebie shuttle bus which runs to and from the railway station stops just down the road. For a no-frills, value-for-money hotel this was ideal for me.

Directions: At the bottom end of the High Street, after the old city gate.
