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

I was down in Minehead for business and decided to take my wife for a night away. Hotel was very convenient for Minehead and in winter Dunster is not full of tourists. We had a nice large room with a comfortable bed. My wife had dinner which she said was good and we both had an excellent breakfast. The staff... More

My husband and I came to this "hotel" to celebrate my birthday and could not have been more disappointed. The room had dirty carpets, so much furniture you could barely open the bathroom door, an extractor fan for the restaurant kitchen right next to our bedroom window which was so loud it sounded like we were staying on the runway...

OldYarn, General Manager at The Dunster Castle Hotel, responded to this review

I am not in anyway surprised by this negative review. The customer call in the morning to advise that he made a mistake and booked a twin room instead of a double for his wifes birthday and could we help... we advised him that the only room left for that night was a standard double at the rear of the...
