Concerts are given in The Old Chapel a few steps across from the hotel. Much careful restoration work has been done in recent years and the chapel is now an attractive and welcoming venue. The wooden interior and floor ensure that the chapel has a fine acoustic for chamber music.

The Hotel

Olga and Alex Polizzi unveiled their latest venture to enormous critical acclaim in the summer of 2021. Dating back to 1345, this was a historic hostelry on the route between Battle Abbey and Chichester, and its 15th Century façade remains unchanged, as does the extravagantly beamed bar. Behind this, a charming, leafy courtyard now leads to 30 comfortable and stylish bedrooms, each combining new and antique furniture alongside works by local artists. The hotel has an elegant restaurant and cosy lounges. There is no lift at The Star but staff are there to help you with your luggage. There is a gated private car park right behind the hotel. The Star is located on Alfriston’s famously picturesque high street with its selection of galleries and shops, notably the wonderful Much Ado bookshop, one of the finest in the country.
