The Star Hotel

The Star Hotel is the former Cromwell (Temperance) Hotel. The original Star Hotel, next door to the south, was demolished to make way for the former post office in 1930, and its 16th century panelling was sold and is currently in the Metropolitan Museum in New York. The current Star Hotel was a single-storey 17th century building. In the 1890’s, when it was being converted into the Cromwell Hotel, the timbered upper floors and the enclosed balcony were added. There is 18th century panelling in the front lounge, which possibly comes from the demolished hotel next door. There is a modern extension at the rear.
