The Star is a nice hotel, extended from a 13C inn and peregrine hostal. The rooms to the back are quiet (I understand those to the front are affected by traffic). The rooms are big and tastefully decorated. They have the expected facilities, incl WiFi,...More

This very old Inn had an interesting interior but was spoilt by poor and uncomfortable seating. The hard wooden chairs were school/church style and wrong height for the tables. We both had the burger in a bap with fries but were surprised that this dish...More

The best thing about our stay here was that for those walking the South Downs Way it is one of the few places actually on the route, which was a most welcome change. The outside of The Star and the dining/pub area is utterly charming,...More

Dear Susan B, Our modern block is an inherited building and therefore there is little we can do about this unfortunately. We are proud of our historic and architecturally important building, and yet the modern addition was added many years ago and provides extremely useful...More
