The Castle is a well mantained hotel with bags of period charm. It is a very beautiful building. There is an excellent choice for breakfast with cereals, fruit, yogurts, fruit juices, tea, coffee and a cooked breakfast. Dinner is of very high quality. The rooms are nicely decorated. The hotel is centrally located at the heart of Taunton.

A warm welcome from the reception team. Lovely spacious room that was beautifully equipped and comfortable. Public rooms and spaces in the classy old style. There's nothing to criticise - a real haven of calm and excellent value for money. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly and professional staff. Thank you to you all !!

I booked here a year in advance to stay the night before and evening of my wedding which was took place in Taunton. I recommended the hotel to guests travelling to the wedding and a few members of the wedding party and one of my friends booked to stay during the weekend of the wedding. From the outside the hotel... More

Firstly, the good news! The staff were excellent and couldn't do enough for the wedding party. However, our room was nowhere near the standard I would expect from the price we were charged, not enough storage space bearing in mind that we were staying for a wedding and all the extra clothing that entailed. The food wasn't brilliant, had Eggs... More

A great weekend stay on my birthday - good service, comfortatble rooms and excellent meals at the Castle Bow Restaurant. Only yards from the centre of the busy market town of Taunton - but away from traffic and other noise. The hotel is full of period features - but this is matched by a more up to date feel in...

We stayed as a party of 10 across 5 rooms on 14th and 15th August. Our stay was absolutely brilliant with excellent facilities and rooms. The food was fantastic and on the Friday evening we had a private dining room which made the experience very special. Above all the staff were first class, courteous, helpful and willing to go the...

Situation: Good location, easy access to Taunton centre. Accomodation: As with any individual old building the rooms will vary. We had one of the few Garden Rooms - more of a Suite with sitting and desk areas and a window seat. The Garden Rooms do actually overlook the enclosed garden and are quiet, being away from the busy noisy front... More

My partner and I popped in today to have some lunch and to view the museum. We had a club sandwich and a salmon platter. The food was delicious and very well presented. Scrummy homemade bread too! We also had a pot of tea for two (generous size) and a slice of gorgeously moist lemon cake YUM YUM. We didn't... More

Bed mattress was so bad, I wondered whether it was actually older than the hotel itself. When I asked if it can be exchanged, I was told there was nothing that they could do. Breakfasts were also average.

Dear Rainbow2018 Thank you for posting a review. I am very sorry that there were issues with your mattress. I believe that some solutions were offered. Unfortunately we were unable to offer you an alternative room as the hotel was fully booked. Please contact me at the hotel if you would like to discuss further. Best regards Marc More
