Stayed here over the August bank holiday. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast and a good night sleep. Only point for improvement is the bathroom. Needs a little refurbishment. There was no shower and the water pressure was very low. Apart from that would definitely recommend staying here.

I was part of a large group from southern Germany and we stayed in the hotel for just under a week with half board. My biggest compliment goes to the staff concerning their ability to deal with any situation e.g. it never fazed them that we sometimes came back for the evening meal over an hour late. The meals we... More

We had a lovely six days there walking the SW Coastal Path. The cheerful service, local information and advice were outstanding and I would highly recommend the hotel as a base for local walking and travel. The attention to small details made our walk very easy and enjoyable. Dunster is a charming village and worth seeing. It is worth remembering... More

Hotel located in a lovely small town of Dunster.A fine location with nice rooms and friendly staff. Our dogs were welcomed and there were several walks around the small Town to be enjoyed by dogs and us. Breakfast we had was a buffet style but perfectly acceptable. All around a good place to stay.

Stayed two nights with my wife and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Great room No2, and a very comfy bed. Anthony, the owner, was very helpful but not overpowering. The location is ideal. The only slight downside was that the breakfast was buffet style, not my ideal way to start the day. I would not hesitate to recommend the Yarn hotel... More

This hotel is a real gem. It is set in the middle of Dunster, a beautiful village, and covers 6 old buildings (so it is a bit of a rabbit warren!). The rooms are cosy and comfortable, with a lovely comfy bed and everything thought of. The service is great, I was part of a large group, which they handled... More

Cozy old hotel with great rooms. It feels like you're back in the 19th century with present day commodities. Great service in a lovely location. The restaurant is the downside of this hotel. Food could be better.

Six of us enjoyed a great few days here while we walked the first part of the South West Coastal Path. Anthony, the hotel owner, could not have been more helpful. Rooms were comfortable, breakfasts were generous and we always looked forward to the evening meals. Would recommend this hotel for walkers doing the SWCP or anyone lookibg for a... More

As with all our accommodation this trip we are generally booking just the night before and relying on good judgement to find a good place. The Yarn Market in Dunster was another excellent choice. We didn't eat there for dinner but the breakfast had the best bacon we have had in UK. A good crisp cooked bacon rind edge! The... More
