I'm not usually one to write reviews on trip advisor, but after seeing the recent write ups on here I thought it was only fair. I have stayed here on several occasions in a number of rooms! Clean and tidy with towels, water and tea/coffee refreshed every day! Beds are comfortable and large, the grabbist room comes highly recommended with... More

You did not book a superior room. Our superior rooms are charged at £130 onwards based on two people sharing. We explained to you that we have... More

Me and my partner came here for a one night get away and paid £90 for a double room. When we got to the room we found that there as cracks all over the walls, the bed was hanging together with a bit of ply wood and the bed sheets tied around it! The headboard wasn't secured either so couldn't... More

Another fantastic night at the hotel.... We booked a party for 6 in the restaurant and had the most fabulous meal and service. The 321 menu is an absolute bargain and the wine delicious. We stayed in the grabbiest room and wow the bed is fantastic and the room so beautiful and clean. This hotel and the management deserve the... More

The staff were very welcoming & offered us a choice of seating. We had a cream tea which was delicious and the price was very reasonable. They did not rush you and the hotel was a great place to relax

Lovely location close to castle and very close to minehead, easy to find as just off the main road in to minehead. friendly people and great value room, full of character but clean and functional well worth a visit if staying in the area. Menu had regional specials.

We had a meal for 13 guests to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday. Every one had a really good time the meal and service was excellent. My wife and I would like to thank every one at the Dunster Castle Hotel for helping to making it a memorable night. Highly recommended

We have just stayed here, I will start by saying that they cant do enough for you whilst you are there, the owners are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Now the not so good. The larger rooms are located at the front of the hotel and so are the set of traffic lights that control the traffic through... More
