We had forty guests for my fathers wake, the hotel gave us a very good reception and were very attentive. The Room which they provided was very good and made all of us feel very relaxed. The food was excellent and the staff were exceptional, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you to all at The Castle for making such... More

Stayed here for a special birthday treat and had a great time. The hotel is a beautiful, classic building but perhaps a little dated in terms of decor and facilities. Having said that the garden room we stayed in was lovely and roomy with some lovely touches. Well worth a visit and we would stay again. Castle Bow restaurant absolutely... More

Situated in the middle of Taunton so well placed. My single room was a reasonable size. Plenty of power sockets, steam iron, and good shower. My evening meal was a steak and it was really good so no complaints about the food. The issue I has however was with the noise. I decided to go to bed about 11PM. First... More

We chose the castle to host our Christmas wedding in December 2014 and what a great choice this was. The events team were fantastic and ensured no detail was too small. The day went exactly as planned a formal but relaxed affair, amazing food, great atmosphere welcoming friendly staff. The castle hotel is a perfect wedding venue.

One night stay at the Castle in Taunton. Wish it had been longer. Beautiful building full of charm and character. The room was spacious, well appointed and very well serviced by housekeeping. Dinner in the hotel restaurant (Castle Bow) was first rate. The bar was comfortable and the barman very welcoming - in fact the staff overall that I encountered... More

Booked a weekend stay at the castle because of the location primarily, as it is right in the centre of the town. It is a very imposing and impressive building on the exterior, but I'm afraid the rooms are a little tired in places, and maybe need a facelift. Having said that, the facilities were excellent, and the size of... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel on Monday, just a flying business trip stay. I will certainly be staying again as from my first welcome by Kim at reception to the polite service at dinner to my check out in the morning, I found the Hotel a warm and welcoming location and certainly very comfortable and relaxing....

My wife and I stayed at the Castle on 7th March along with a number of friends attending a private birthday party. Getting there is interesting as any map directions or Satnav are not accurate and you can spend time driving around the town and then have to be confident enough to drive across an open public area in front...

I stayed for one night in February as part of a business trip to Somerset. The hotel is located in the centre of Taunton and is about a 20 minute walk (with case) from the rail station. I had a very spacious room with all the facilities I needed for an overnight stay. My evening meal was one of the... More
