Once an ancient monastery, The Star and Eagle Hotel dates back to the 14th century. It offers charming accommodation in the Kent countryside, 20 minutes’ drive from Royal Tunbridge Wells. Much of the old stonework is still visible throughout the building, and guests can admire the exposed brickwork, wooden beams, and an open log fire while dining in the restaurant. A wide-ranging menu is available, including tapas, seafood and meat, and there are vegetarian options to choose from. Guests can also dine outdoors, with picturesque views of the surrounding Kentish Weald. Rooms at The Star and Eagle have carpeted floors, seating areas and TVs. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the building, and free private parking is possible on site. Situated just 3 miles from the A21, the hotel is a 35-minute drive from the historic coastal town of Hastings. Maidstone is just a 25-minute journey by car.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.0 for a two-person trip.

    This is a lovely pub hotel. Historic, quirky, well looked after. It feels beautifully maintained and fresh whilst being sympathetic to its age. Evening meal delicious. Not cheap, but when the plates arrived each entirely justified their pricing by...
