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.

I stayed in this lovely historic building for the first time and initially was impressed. The setting is ideal. The surroundings are lovely and picturesque. The hotel has character and is situated very well for visits to this West Country town. The staff at The Castle are very friendly and efficient. When entering my bedroom I was, however, very disappointed.... More

After ordering two weeks ago for four adults and two children we got a seat in the lobby on a small table with no room for the children. Btw one of the seats smells of wee. After a quiet word with tony they put some tables together in the tea room so that we had space for the high chair.... More

Dear Rick R Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to read that you had such a poor experience. Perhaps you could contact me at the hotel to discuss it in more detail. It sounds like we failed to deliver our usual high standards of food and service so I would really appreciate the opportunity to make it... More

We arrived at The Castle after a tortuous drive down the M4/M5 and it was like a breath of fresh air. The staff gave a very warm welcome and made sure we had everything we needed. Our room was very nice, overlooking the Castle Green. The whole building is slightly dated but in very good condition and very clean. Breakfast... More

Stated at this hotel on 28th August. Room was very nice but well overpriced £189 for 1 night. Evening meal was OK but nothing to shout home about. Then we come to breakfast the following morning, the waitress was rude and ignorant, asked her to bring condiments which never turned up, ended up going and fetching them myself. The waitress...

I was given a gift voucher on Mothering Sunday, for Afternoon tea and I went there with the 'other' mum last Thursday. We were treated like royalty and enjoyed a delicious tea of sandwiches, cakes and desserts. The tea which was loose leaf was served in pretty bone china crockery. We could take as much time as we wanted and... More

It is a long time since I last visited. The grand entrance and splendour of the this old place had not changed, but inside there are quite a few. Please bring back the old world ambience, modern and trendy does not suit here at all. Staff are rushed off their feet...hence service was slow. We were only here for a... More

My wife & I stayed a Friday night. The location & character of the hotel is ideal & right in the centre of town. Our room was delightful and the staff friendly & helpful. Our bathroom was a good size. Top marks all round. We will certainly be back.
