This is a hotel which has loads of history and parts of the building remain stuck in the past and require modernisation yet this cannot be said for the newly decorated updated bedroom. Location is excellent for the city centre with all the shops, bars and restaurants, easy reach of the train station and bus links around the city as well as the docks for those leaving by cruise liner. The wonderful architecture of the reception area is a little jaded now, however, the welcome at reception was warm, friendly and efficient. The walk to the room took me through the restaurant (which is now only serving breakfast), the dark glum corridors did not instill confidence in what I was to find in the room. The newly decorated room was a surprise, yes in was compact in terms of size but you had all you required for the stay. The bed was comfortable and aided a good night's sleep. The television and Wi-Fi were excellent. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and functional. So the room was very good. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

My room was clean and tidy and the bed comfortable. However, be warned that the the hotel is extremely tired and this is reflected in aspects of the rooms. For example, my shower was not more than a dribble and the curtain rail fell down. Doubt I would come back, particularly at the price point.

Awful stay at the hotel. Saw a rat run across the restaurant floor and the security just shrugged it off. Old fashioned, smelly, bizarre layout of staircases to get to a first floor room. Dirty bathrooms with see-through doors and no locks… don’t stay. Watermarks all over the ceilings…

I had made a mistake with a booking and had to book in at the last minute for which I was grateful . The people were very friendly and the breakfast excellent. The hotel has very old world charm and this was appreciated. It was in the middle of a heatwave and my room was right at the top of the hotel and very hot. But there was really nothing they could do about that. A little money spent on updating the wiring and the decor of the hotel would preserve the charm and allay the complaints of previous reviewers. I found the surrounding area very good and Weatherspoons next door a bonus. I would certainly stay again but the rate I got was rather expensive - perhaps because I booked at the last minute.

Arrived for a 2 night stay in this listed building. On entering the staff were very welcoming. Addy is a great ambassador for the Star Hotel. Our room was clean and spacious with toiletries and coffee/tea making facilities. Breakfast was perfect, lots of choices and the staff were fantastic, filled with humour, making our day start with a smile. Thanks Megs and Anna Banana 🤗 Whilst there are comments about the decor being tired it is a listed building so there will be limitations as to what can be done but for us it was clean, welcoming and great value. A good place to stay 👍

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in . The room wasn’t very clean and the bathroom was filthy. The shower just dribbled with water, almost impossible to wash your hair. The room was really hot, but we were unable to open the window due to the pigeons that constantly were sat on the ledge. The sockets were in stupid places, not near a mirror and the only place to plug the kettle in was on the ledge by the window. The walls are paper thin, so we could hear Nextdoor talking until nearly 4am and then even hear the light switches being turned off . The reception staff were dismissive, almost rude. We asked what time the bar closed before we went out , and was told 11pm. When we returned before 10pm it was closed. When we questioned this we were told to go to a bar down the street!

Last decorated in 1969, hasn't changed since. £57 for room, £7.99 for breakfast, £5 to park the car. Take some advice pay the £5 and sleep in the car. The only thing it has going for it is the location.

Unfortunately for us we got a room at the front of the hotel, the glazing was single and it sounded like the drunken yobs outside were in the room with us. Not to mention the cars racing up the road all night and wheel spinning. The front bedrooms urgently need upgrading to at least double glazing as this kept us up till 3am only to be woken at 6am by the road sweeper going back and forth!!! Staff were friendly and our room had been recently jazzed up with some nice wallpaper but the bathroom was incredibly dated and the "shower" was a naff mixer tap one over the bath that was either a scolding hot or freezing cold dribble. The toilet needed to be pumped. Luckily our neighbours on our floor were quiet at least because there was a 2 inch gap under our bedroom door so not a great deal of privacy. We used the cushions supplied to cover it but still found ourselves whispering. The car park is good if you can get a spot and it was a good location in terms of being near shops and pubs and the old wall. Our room was clean but we will only remember the noise afraid.

Room was old outdated and not clean. Plug sockets away from walls (not safe) , paint falling of walls. Bathroom taps did not work, the temperature of the shower was scolding hot even at lowest setting. We were charged £85.50 for one night and found out later that our friends only paid £50 for the same type of room which is alarming!! I would not advise anyone to stay here the hotel is clearly not being maintained properly.

Stayed 2 nights, worst place I've ever stayed ! Management did nothing about the drug taking in the other hotel rooms so that's all you could smell ! Furnishings poor, radiator didn't work and window broken. On the plus side the bathroom was decent.
