This was my second visit to The Castle, and yet I still had difficulty finding it by car. It would be really helpful if there was adequate signage to the hotel car park as Taunton isn't the easiest place to find your way around. I was visiting on business, so spent just one night there, but was delighted to find... More

We haven't spent a NYE in the UK for a decade, so we decided last minute (29th Dec) to book something local.The Castle Hotel is less than 2 miles from our house; We spent our wedding night there and used to visit it regularly for dinner when it still had an acclaimed formal restaurant.The evening started at 8pm with canapés...

On my last visit, I was disappointed in so many changes in this hotel. See 310814. We went this weekend and I have to say the food was very very good. About right price for this quality. Good service from the staff. Quiet and efficient. Reading the menu and the wine list made us quite sad we were only here... More

We have stayed here for 1 night as we sent the girl to school in Taunton, the location of the hotel is excellent, you can walk to the town centre within 3 minutes. We have booked 3 rooms and all of them are lovely, each room has its own styles and decorations. Even the outlook of the building is stunning... More

Great location, friendly staff and a well maintained hotel. An enjoyable stay for a business trip. Wifi fast and a large comfy bed. I will look to stay here when in Taunton again. Only negative was the difficulty in finding the car park through the pedestrian access...hardly a major problem!

Stayed here on New years eve. We were given a free up-grade to the Sedgemore suite and it was amazing! The room was beautiful, the bed was to die for and every aspect of our stay was great. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. The staff were really pleasant and helpful and the hotel is beautiful. A fantastic start to 2015!... More

I chose to celebrate my 18th Birthday at the castle and what a choice it was. Outstanding service, divine food and tremendous support through every step of organisation. I had a wonderful experience. Couldn't fault it.

Saturday 27th December lunch - very poor service and the barman quite rude. He was obviously very busy but not our fault! Not what we expect from The Castle.

I could not fault this Hotel in any shape or form. The Food was Fabulous and the Staff were excellent especially Ellie on Reception, who kindly gave me advice/ directions and even made sure that I could get some vital, urgent and essential Documents were e-mailed. Thank you everyone for a Great meal+

Excellent dinner in the Wysteria Room - set for nine of us and beautifully decorated. Very impressive. Looked after everyone's dietary requirements without fuss, food great, wine great, and the service was wonderful as well. Helen and her team really looked after us. Thanks everyone. The hotel interior (and exterior come to think of it) is beautiful. There was ample... More
