After an unfortunate stay in the height of Christmas party season we were able to review this hotel now as first class in every department. The food is of outstanding quality and the restaurant staff are extremely well trained in the presentation of it . It is a rare treat to be able to have dogs stay and we certainly...

Booked through a hotel comparison site so got a great value deal. Had got married from the Castle Hotel 14 years ago so jumped at the chance of a night away from family responsibilities to catch up with old friends and see a concert at the nearby fantastic Brewhouse Theatre. Lovely room overlooking the rooftops of Taunton and distant views...

Surroundings wonderful. Reception staff exceptional. Service in both bar and restaurant excellent. We arrived to use a gift of Afternoon Tea. How special we felt. The dining room plush, silver teapots, quality white linen and excellent waiter service. The food was glorious (and I am very particular). Good selection of sandwiches, then both plain and fruited scones with a very...

Excellent location and very nice property. The staff are great and make you feel welcome. I booked a deluxe double as it was on offer, and it is very comfortable and spacious. Maybe the rooms are due for a refurb but that would be my only negative, but they are clean and tidy, it is an old castle after all,...

Moved out of a horrendous hotel and into this one. Such a pleasant experience. Lovely room, nice bathroom, welcoming bar & a great location. My room was very spacious and comfortable. Restaurant a bit old so went out for supper but would definitely recommend.

We hold 4 meetings a year in The Castle, the staff are always very accommodating, friendly and polite, the facilities are excellent and the atmosphere and location is second to none. There are various bars and restaurants in the hotel to choose from, the food is well know to be one of the best in the area.

I booked the Castle as the location was so central whilst the building having character. Great parking facilities unfortunately they have had to put a recent charge of £5 per night due to misuse. But they take your registration number so why do you still have to pay when your a resident? Seems a bit unfair. Reception staff were friendly...

Yes, perhaps grand many years back but seriously in need of refurb. Staff are friendly and food is okay, but..... Very cold rooms with draft coming through windows, very worn carpets and furniture. Bed certainly in urgent need of new mattress. The lights in my bathroom were not working and I had no hot water... If all that is of...

Went for afternoon tea here, which was lovely and they catered really well for the different eating likes in our group! Lovely sandwiches and scones - but no cake!!! There were some nice enough little mini desert like things, which were incredibly sweet. Weirdly the vegetarian had cake - but not the rest of us that had the usual basic...

Very disappointed with the managements attitude after celebrating the wife's birthday at the castle bow restaurant due to brazz being refurbished, all our party hung their coats on the one stand outside the restaurant as there was no where to put them safe inside the restaurant, when we was ready to leave we found that the wife's new grey coat...
