Recently stayed at this hotel, we received a warm welcome. The room was well appointed, clean and modern without losing the charm of the building. Everyone was helpful and friendly and we hope to return soon. It also has the added advantage of having its own car park.

Came here and sat in the beer garden as we had our two dogs. The beer garden was a great sun trap - sun still in the garden at 7.30pm. We had cajun chicken breast and normal chicken breast and really can't fault the food. Chicken was cooked perfectly and served with the best chips we have tasted. Service was... More

If you are fed up with big group hotels and think small and friendly establishments do not deliver, the Dunster Castle will change your mind. You will be met with a warm welcome by all the staff and stay in a well appointed en suite room. The food is first class and prepared to a very high standard by a... More

I was "very" impressed, and that is an understatement. Staying away with work and trying various establishments i must say this one ticks all the boxes. The food that came from the kitchen was a treat to eat and the restaurant surroundings lovely,so good in fact i even invited my partner out to dinner while i was staying. Having stayed... More

I recently stayed here for the first time when performing locally. I would defnitely stay again. The new owners Jo & Grant are both charming and hospitable. The room was very comfortable and tastefully/appropriately decorated in-keeping with the sweet, old building. In our room there was individual antique furniture, an elegant central glass chandelier and a huge, baroque style mirror,... More

My husband recently surprised me with a weekend away here and it was amazing. The room we stayed in was Conygar which is a super king - not only is the room huge it is stunning! We took advantage of the 3-2-1 menu which was 3 course for 2 people and a bottle of house wine. There was a lot... More

We found the Dunster castle friendly, good value for money and rooms clean and comfortable. We got the weekend deal which included breakfast and a evening meal. The breakfast was good and the evening meal surpassed my expectations. I would recommend this hotel and would definitely return.

We spent two nights here last weekend. The room was comfortable and well equipped with traditional charm. The attention we received from staff and management was first class. Great location for walking, a lovely relaxing weekend with good food. Quite a contrast to the review left by Sam A on 20 Feb. We overheard the exchange in the bar. The... More
