Our room was large at the front of the hotel so overlooked the road which was great and had plenty to look at. Pretty village too. Staff friendly and helpful and breakfast was cooked to order so piping hot. Their evening menu we thought was rather fancy as we are quite plain eaters so we ate in the pub across...

We stayed overnight here on our way down to Cornwall. I do not think this hotel represents good value for money. At this price, I would expect a higher standard of offer. For example: the room facilities and bathroom were not as good as other hotels I have stayed in at this price; the shower in our bathroom was not...

Thank you for your comments about your stay here - we do try to respond to guests' comments and suggestions. I am sorry you felt your one-night stay was overpriced, but our tariff does reduce per night for stays of two nights or more. We have an on-going programme of refurbishment, and the stairs and corridors are on the list...

We stayed here for one night in March to go and explore the coast. We stayed on a Friday night and were impressed with how polite everyone was working there. 11/10 for breakfast amazing buffet type English breakfast and cold breakfasts also! Big enough room for one night and simple fixtures, will be returning! Dunster is beautiful!

I was due to stay at another Dunster hotel but was let down by them just as I pulled into their car park at 4.30pm, alone and with my dogs in the back of the car (see an other review!)! And no mobile signal. Yarn Market (where I had stayed before a number of years ago), kindly jumped in and...

We stayed at The Yarn Market hotel for a few days over the Easter period, and what a beautiful warm welcome we received. The hotel looks newly refurbished and is very clean. The food and service is excellent. Unfortunately our car broke down and they helped us tremendously with the issues that we faced. Nothing seems too much trouble for...

Lovely hotel: clean, comfortable, spacious, beautiful location. Food good (breakfast and dinner). But the USP is the attentive hosting. All staff friendly and helpful, looking after my children and me. Real family feel. Thoroughly recommend the Stargazing Break with Steve Owens - fun, informative, beautiful and mind-boggling!

Managed to find a room here at the last moment on a very cold January night! Staff were friendly and welcoming and the room was warm and comfortable. Lovely view from the window too. Perfectly situated on the Main Street in Dunster which is a wonderful place to explore. Lots of places to eat round and about too. Would happily...

We booked the Yarn Market Hotel fairly last minute as a quick getaway from it all for New Year. It was important that we could take our dog as we wanted to be able to walk across Exmoor. The Hotel was very dog friendly, no problem having her in our room, We ate with her by our side and the...
