Stayed here for 2 nights recently. The hotel is located right in the centre of Taunton, a minute or two from the bus station and about 15 minutes from the railway station by foot. We had a free upgrade to a Garden Room which overlooks the green (actually a large paved area by the castle). The room was large, comfortable... More

Having had a private dining room within the hotel to hold a 21st birthday celebration, I would thoroughly recommend this venue to others. The decor is beautiful and creates a wonderful atmosphere. The food is excellent and service impeccable. Would definitely visit again.

Second time my family and I have held a function at The Castle, both times superb. We used the Penthouse, which is extremely comfortable. The staff were brilliant, the food good value but not exceptional this time. The terrine we chose needed something to lift it, either seasoning or a chutney to go with it. The main course of steak...

We stayed at The Castle for 2 nights, it was a lovely experience the staff were very nice and friendly, It was very clean an although there were two weddings going on it was not intrusive. The rooms were spacious and had everything you needed to make it very comfortable. We will definitely stay there again when we visit Taunton.

We had a lovely 2 night stay. The rooms were very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We ate in the Brazz restaurant on the first night and the food was delicious, the service was great. Breakfast was equally as good. The hotel contacted me on our journey home to inform me that I had left my kindle... More

I've been visiting Somerset for many years, as I have family living down there, so I feel I know the area well and I've known about the castle hotel for a while as other family members have stayed there. So for the price I paid (£149 + £5 parking) for 1 nights stay without breakfast was extremely disappointing, the room... More

We had our wedding ceremony, wedding breakfast and reception at The Castle Hotel and it was brilliant. The food was delicious, service was excellent and we all felt very well looked after. Anything we asked for, was done instantly. Thank you for making our special day even more special. I highly recommend!

Just an over night stay visiting friends. Single room ok sizewise, double also spacious just sad looking decoration. Hideous yellow/green/blue patterned fabric everwhere... looks very dated. Clean but bathroom needed ceiling repair and also annoying taps that require 3 or 4 turns to get any water flow and slowwwwww filling toilet cisterns. The hotel was difficult to book as it... More
