Came here with the boyfriend our first official out the house date. Very friendly staff and atmoshere. I order elderflower press for drink but unfortunately they had none left in stock which is understandable, they offered me a cordial instead which was just as tasty.. Food was of very high standard, i had a warm chicken and bacon salad and... More

We spent one night at this hotel as passing through area -the staff were very welcoming. Food was very good (the salmon and scrambled egg for breakfast was amazing). The room was spacious but very warm. A fan was provided and was on when we arrived. The windows opened onto a very noisy road, which didn't really bother us for... More

We visited the Dunster Castle Hotel after being told there were no places at the Stags Head. We weren't sure if they were able to fit us in but the staff were very helpful and didn't change all the way through our meals. We had starters and mains and each were just as great as the other. My boyfriend had... More

After having a thoroughly enjoyable stay here last year I decided to try and book in again for our trip to Dunster. I telephoned late morning on Saturday July 6th and told the person who answered the phone that I would like to book in on Monday and Tuesday nights with my husband and our two dogs. The person who...

I only booked for one night as I was passing through the area. The hotel is fairly small scale only having about half a dozen rooms. The service was good and I was shown to the room which was quite warm being at the front on the sunny side of the street. I could find no fan but one of... More

This small,quirky hotel is in a great position for exploring the surrounding area. We bought a steam train rover ticket online and spent a day completely car free. The hotel has it's own car park, which is unusual in Dunster. Our room was large and everything worked as expected. Yes, there were a few marks on the carpet, undoubtedly caused... More

Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was smaller than expected and had to boil the kettle on the floor because there wasn't a suitable space for it - not particularly convenient or safe. The bridal suite was massive and stunning, great for wedding day preparations. Breakfast was great, well cooked local produce. No gluten free bread available on our first... More

The rooms were clean and welcoming.. a review has mentioned the sash windows but there married to the property. They could be opened in our room which was Dowry.. The staff were what you would expect of a boutique hotel. I call it boutique because there are not hundred of rooms. We were a mixed crowd who had primarily taken... More

Stayed here because we fancied being out of Minehead and in a historic location. Good points: location, car park, comfy bed, spacious room. Not so good points: carpet in room (Avill) was very grubby, noise from traffic, sash windows took a real effort to close, sink taps loose, toilet flush very iffy. Food was OK but felt it expensive for... More
