The Welcome It would have been helpful if the e-mail confirming my booking had specific directions as to how to find the hotel - the point to leave the A34 - then the detailed directions
The quality of the room Didnt appear on the satnav and apparently it is a common problem according to the staff
Food was excellent, staff all very nice, the bed was clean & comfortable, but the bathroom was rather cramped, I dont know how very large people, would manage, Our stay fitted the bill for us, the only complaint was the bathroom,
Teh ambience of the rooms was nice, the meals were fantastic though a little pricy.
I was really very pleasantly surprised to find my room so comfortable and welcoming, and the restaurant menu so inviting. I'd certainly come again. Its location isn't perfect for north of Newbury meetings but ok if you factor in the distance.
One of the staff kept saying 'no problem' when more appropriate responses would be 'very good' or 'you're welcome'
Comfortable bed The room was very small and you had to squeeze round the edge of the bed to get to the other side. No chairs to put your clothes on at all, hence on the floor overnight and stained towels and bathmat. Overall clean though.
breakfast, bathroom, flat screen tv annex room vey small, road noise
Friendliness of the staff and their ability to adapt to changing arrival time due to delays on motorway. They could not do enough. The room was comfortable and very quite despite being near a major road. Poor breakfast choice and had to pay extra for cooked english breakfast. Then the scrambled eggs where grey and luke warm...not nice!! This detracted from an otherwise very enjoyable stay.
Quiet location, comfortable rooms, great food! No fan in the room - it was very hot outside & the room could have benefited from an electric fan.
Very friendly and homely hotel with good food and bags of character in an appealing location. Approach to rear car park was in poor repair.
Fantastic food, host was very attentive nothing to much trouble None
Small and friendly with very high standards, good food, clean rooms, situated in a pretty rural area. The only problem seems to be finding the Crown & Garter, although satnav probably solves this one.
Attentiveness of the manager. Grouting in bathroom showed some mould and shower was erratic.
We found the room to be very clean and the staff to be cheerful and helpful. Overall a friendly atmosphere.
Friendly staff,comfortable room,good choice of beers and great breakfast.
Breakfast was a bit meagre
The warmeth and friendliness to the bar area. The landlord Gilbert was more than helpful the shower in the room did not control the water temperature correctly
I enjoyed a good lunch The shower was poor, little pressure unless the water temerature was too hot for comfort. And to finish serving breakfast at 9am on Sunday is ridiculous. We missed breakfast!
The staff were very friendly, the food was excellent and it is in a tiny quiet village. Our bathroom was very small
The hotel had changed hands only three days before we arrived - and the new owners were clearly trying to get things (which had clearly slipped down) back under control swiftly. The place was a bit disappointing but, that said, they were very responsive to our requests, acknowledging our suggestions as to how they might improve to ensure that this remains a four star destination of choice. It would be nice to have cotton sheets. The plumbing needs sorting and a daily service would be good. And some local information would not go astray.
Very quiet. Few other guests. Stand-in manager was great. Sad loss when he moves on. The flush in the en-suite lavatory was pitiful, the room was in need of redecoration and the bed was past its best.
Lunch and breakfast well cooked and enjoyable, though the service was extremely slow. Notable lack of staff the probable answer to this. Helpful answers to our enquiries re routes back to civilisation. Water in bathroom not very hot and beds rather hard. We have had better accommodation in a variety of hotels over the years and feel that the Star Inn is run down and in need of more staff and greater professional management.
Convenient location for our purpose The initial welcome was a bit offhand and the introduction to our room and the facilities was a bit cursory.The bathroom had a fusty smell. However, the room was warm and clean and the staff we met the next morning were a disntinct improvement!
Friendliness of staff, good food, cottagey feel to the room,very clean.Quiet surroundings. Rather untidy area between accommodation and main Inn gave a bad first impression. A dog being allowed on the bar counter, no objection to it otherwise.
A warm welcome awaited us. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean and extremely comfortable with an en suite shower room and plenty of space. Our stay was excellent value for money and provided a super overnight stay for a family wedding just 10 minutes or so up the road.
Location, Location, Location! Staff were excellent, approachable & informative. Took care of all our needs. The owner took time to seek out our opinion. Bathroom, whilst a little on the small side, was quite adequate with the shower the highlight - very comfortable. Bed very comfortable and duvet was great to snuggle under. Peaceful, quiet and lovely location at a very affordable price. Compared to other similar accommodation, the Star Inn is close to the very top, would recommend it for anyone wishing to stay in a rural and beautiful location. Lack of storage space for two people, e.g. a chest of drawers or similar would have eased this, hanging space adequate. Not an undue issue though, wish the towel heater was switched on from the start, though once it was realized we were from a much warmer climate the offer was made immediately and apologies given.
Good food good accommadation friendly service very relaxed atmosphere Shower water pressure weak
Ecellent area for everything .nice people and very friendly pub lovely surroundings. A bit of noise from traffic ,but that could not be helped you got used to it.
Warm welcome, friendly staff. Bed was to soft.
The staff was very helpful with directions. Nice proximity to Avebury. This is not a negative, but because this hotel is so old, be prepared for comfortable and quaint.
The owners were very friendly and helpful and tried to make our stay as enjoyable as they could.
Friendliness of the staff, and customers: good food, good wine, altogether a pleasant atmosphere. I know it sounds unfair, but, being slightly deaf, young children screaming does not go down well!
staff friendly and food very good proximity to main road meant sleep disturbed. \shower not working properly.
Nice pub atmosphere with well kept beers. Small but good menu. Friendly staff. Warm, clean room with modern en-suite. On site car parking for guests. Short drive to Marlborough, Swindon and local historic sites. No dislikes.
Peace and quiet in a nice size room with adequate facilities
Good comfortable room separatate from main part of the inn. Food very good and reasoably priced. This is not a complaint on y part but anyone not comfortable with animals might not like the fact that a large labrador dog and a cat appear to have the run of the restaurant area. having said that the dog gave us some moments of amusement as it has trained its owners well to do its bidding by devious means.
Very comfortable modern good sized room.
Friendly Staff, Good Selection of food No shower in the room and a lack of hot water for the bath, so on 4 out of 7 mornings I had to have a cold bath, bed was slightly uncomfortable, poor tv reception
Pleasant stay First floor mid corridor needs airing due to cooking smells from kitchen below. Better light blocking curtains/blinds over window (Rm 6) needed. Passing cars light the room up!
Very friendly staff. Excellent food. Comfortable and quiet room. None
None Dirty, Nothing worked, could not have a shower, because wall fixing broken. Carpet in bathroom (Who has carpet in bathroom)? Worn and smelly. Cobwebs hanging from light fittings.
Good evening meals
Good value;good food;friendly staff;comfortable rooms.
Food was excellent, staff were friendly and efficient Rooms were adequate but no hiardryer, bin or glasses in bathroom. Carpet on the stairs was worn in places.
Staff friendly and helpful All areas such as stairwell,corridor,car park etc were scruffy and unkempt.The room whilst adequate was in need of a complete makeover.
