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.

A night at the Castle is still a real treat. While the decor is beginning to look a bit tired, the Castle's reputation has always depended on the quality of its food, which in recent years has been variable. Be in no doubt though, the food in the Castle Bow restaurant is now outstanding. In Liam Finnegan they have discovered... More

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...

Great service, great room, wonderful staff, fantastic breakfast ! Thought the surroundings and the characteristics of the building were outstanding. The check-in and check-out was efficient. The staff were very helpful.
