Just the one night in our usual suite, as always a warm welcome from Reception. Dinner in the Castle Bow Restaurant, was exceptional, the mains of Turbot, arguably the King of fish, were beautifully prepared, with the lightest of touches.... Breakfast in the "Brazz" did not disappoint, with perfect eggs Benedict. The "Castle" always invokes a sense of well being,... More

Gone were the alcoves with the log fires etcetera to be replaced with a big modern eating and... More

We arrived at the castle and were met by an efficient and friendly receptionist who told us that our room had been upgraded to a suite. Since we had booked on a special deal this was very unexpected and very welcome. Unknown to the hotel we were celebrating a special occasion and the upgrade was the icing on the cake.... More

I stayed in a single room and was very pleasantly surprised at how spacious it was. The staff were welcoming, the decor is charming and the shower was wonderful! The location is great too, being in the middle of town and a 10-15minute walk from the train station. I would definitely stay here again!

I enjoyed my stay. The room was large, neat, recently decorated and very clean. The bathroom was also neat and clean, though the bath had a very obvious water stain in the enamel. The room was facing the square, but with its double glazing was absolutely quiet at night. The imposing entrance hall looked ideal for a setting of an... More

The Castle has always had a great reputation and returning to the town where I grew up and staying their for the first time , it delivered an old world charm - it does after all date back to the 12th century. Its location in town could not be more central . The staff were helpful and friendly . The... More

The Castle is well located in the centre of town. In most ways it's olde worlde with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Our room was large and the bed very comfortable. It had all the amenities but was old fashioned in style. We overlooked the car park (which even residents have to pay for - a negative) and a pub... More

The Castle was cozy and charming. The room was spacious, clean and (again I say it) charming. As I was traveling with my sister who needed to get some work done on the road, it was especially nice to have a desk and chair for her to work at as well as a small sitting area for me. Excellent location... More

My sister and I were on a tour and stayed one night in Taunton; very glad we chose The Castle. The decor is homey and welcoming, the staff were very pleasant and helpful, and the room was very nice. Loved it.
