I booked this restaurant for a Christmas day dinner for four of us. The service was first rate with very attentive staff. The food was delicious and of a high standard. The decor and fittings are in really good condition. I will certainly book here for a meal again in the near future.

We recently stayed at The Dunster Castle Hotel from Friday to Sunday for my Sister’s wedding. Jo and her team were absolutely incredible, nothing was too much trouble and they literally went above and beyond to make the wedding as special as it could be. The reception room itself was decorated beautifully, the bedrooms are a good size with very... More

We had a marvelous couple of nights in Dunster. We took advantage of the two night half board offer and cannot fault it. Fantastic large room, helpful staff, great food, and even my fussy boyfriend loved the cider. Would recommend the Dunster Castle to everyone. Will definitely come again.

My husband and I stayed at the Dunster Cstle Hotel last weekend for a break away from the kids. We arrived to a fantastic warm welcome and instantly felt relaxed. We were to the beautiful Aville room and I knew that we had made the right choice. Wonderful food, great staff. Cannot wait to come back.

We did not stay at the hotel, but stopped off for lunch whilst in the area. The owners were very pleasant people who took the time to stop what they were doing to have a chat, which in my book goes a long way. the food itself was nothing spectacular, but filled a hole and was not too pricey. We... More

We booked a "Value Double En-suite room" through a booking site at £90 for one night. Only afterwards did we look in more detail at the hotel website later to work out exactly which room we'd get. We thought we might be in 'The Stables' but guessed that as we were only a couple, we'd be in the Attic room... More
