We had a lovely big room, slept no problem, well until the bin men arrived but you can get that anywhere. We had the full exmoor breakfast which although didn't look much on the plate was very filling, very good and we didn't need to eat again til late. Evening meal choice was very good and so much more than... More

We were given a friendly welcome and a lovely bedroom with everything one would expect from a more expensive hotel. The dinner was a wonderful meal. The chef trained somewhere like the Savoy London (or similar). We had such a lovely time we wished we had stayed another night. We chatted to the local business people in the bar after... More

We've just spent an excellent long weekend at The Dunster Castle Hotel. The hotel is a lovely old building, full of character, lots of different levels and the obligatory sloping floors! As well as being picturesque the location makes it an ideal base for exploring the area. It's nice to walk out of the hotel and take a stroll around... More

Stayed here in February for the night this is a lovely little hotel, the staff were really friendly the rooms were top quality and the food was excellent. Dunster's a lovely little place and this hotel makes a great place for exploring beautiful Exmoor from I would recommend this for a few nights stay.

Was sceptical about eating here as the reviews were not great however we took the risk and went here for Valentines day. The food was delicious and the duck breast was one of the nicest I had ever had. Would recommend.

Booked a table of 17, in which we had asked for Sunday carvery in the evening. Was absolutely brilliant, got extra bowls of vegetables and extra jus without even having to ask for it. As for the desserts they were out standing! The head chef Kyle seems very talented!! Thank you for a great night night!!

We were in Dunster between Christmas and New Year and as everywhere else was busy we decided to call in for a cream tea as advertised on a blackboard outside. We had barely got in the door when a young waitress hurried over and asked if she could help, when we said we would like a cream tea she said... More

Stopped here for beverages following a visit to the castle. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The atmosphere was relaxed and the service was excellent, with particular attention paid to a child in our company. The interior was very clean and welcoming decor.
