Stayed for 2 nights last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. Reception staff not particularly welcoming at first but once she had established we were staying and found our booking much friendlier. We had dinner on Friday evening which couldn`t be faulted and young waiters very efficient, professional and knowledgeable about wine etc. There is a 12.5% service charge. Breakfast next... More

One of the things I really don't like about the Castle is the charge to leave one's car in their cap park overnight. All car park in the rest of the town do not charge after 18.00. It just strikes me as greedy. Having said that, the place really is the best in Taunton. If you are a cricket fan... More

Lovely, and excellent value for money. Highly recommended, tho a few minor niggles but nothing to really mar your experience. Do stay there, and eat there too. Wifi in the rooms works fairly well (not for streaming tho!) Input from someone like Alex Polizzi for a few days would resolve all the minor niggles, which includes staff not realising that... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the Castle Hotel for our wedding anniversary and to attend a family party, while taking the opportunity to visit the local area. The hotel is superbly located in the centre of Taunton with parking directly in front of the building (at an extra but extremely reasonable cost). The layout of the building is both... More

Stayed for one night only while visiting my mother in hospital. The position could not be better with pedestrian access directly through a gateway from the main High Street but overlooking a large pedestrianised square with vehicle access to the hotel car park. An interesting buiding and the square itself is magnificent containing both The historic castle and The Museum... More

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
