On arrival I thought what a pretty hotel, the outside is quite mysterious, especially in the dark. The welcome was friendly and so was the staff. The room wasn't. Little box at the end of the Hotel. So all in all £140/night seems to be quite a lot for what you get and the rooms were very hot. The breakfast... More

We stayed here for a Friday and Saturday night in a deluxe double. The building is beautiful. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The decor in the rooms was dated and lampshades were falling apart when trying to turn the light on. We had a very pleasant stay, but thought it was very expensive for what you get. We... More

Booked 2 rooms, a double & a twin and asked for them to be close together. Rooms were huge, and had a lobby which made them into a two bedroom suite. The twin had a sofa and still loads of room. We stayed two nights on the 'Somerset cream tea' deal which included breakfast (£150'ish per room) Brilliant value for... More

Beautiful hotel situated in the middle of Taunton. We had a wonderfully light and airy (Garden) room which, at £200 per night (inc breaklfast), was not cheap, but pretty good value. The place runs like clockwork and the staff are genuinely friendly and helpful. They were particularly wecoming of our 2 dogs. My only gripe is paying £5 per night... More

We stayed for two nights to break up our journey to Cornwall and my partner had a business meeting in Taunton and Barnstaple. Our room was enormous! We stayed in 120 which I think was called the Seymour suite. As we have an 8 week old baby this was perfect, plenty of room for a travel cot and all the... More

Fabulous hotel in a central location. Good sized, comfortable and well serviced rooms. Dining experiences were of the highest quality, particularly Gerry's breakfasts in Brazz, with his delicious breads. Staff extremely attentive and polite with a level of service sadly missing from many other hotels. We would revisit without a doubt as our brief stay was most enjoyable. Many thanks

Excellent service, the building well maintained, food and staff great , but an insult having to pay to use their private carpark! This really left a bitter taste, as we couldn't fault the hotel itself.

The staff in this hotel are the best part of the stay as they are good humoured, informative and nothing was too much trouble. Ten out of ten for customer services. The room was absolutely great as far as the size, very generous with a huge bathroom. Great towels and robes, a fabulous bath followed by lounging getting ready for... More

I remember the Castle from times past when I was often in taunton on business but it was beyond my company budget. I was surprised to find it on offer by the corporate booking company that books hotels for my current employer as often the hotels offered leave a lot to be desired. I was not at all disappointed and... More
