I enjoyed my stay. The room was large, neat, recently decorated and very clean. The bathroom was also neat and clean, though the bath had a very obvious water stain in the enamel. The room was facing the square, but with its double glazing was absolutely quiet at night. The imposing entrance hall looked ideal for a setting of an... More

The Castle has always had a great reputation and returning to the town where I grew up and staying their for the first time , it delivered an old world charm - it does after all date back to the 12th century. Its location in town could not be more central . The staff were helpful and friendly . The... More

The Castle is well located in the centre of town. In most ways it's olde worlde with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Our room was large and the bed very comfortable. It had all the amenities but was old fashioned in style. We overlooked the car park (which even residents have to pay for - a negative) and a pub... More

The Castle was cozy and charming. The room was spacious, clean and (again I say it) charming. As I was traveling with my sister who needed to get some work done on the road, it was especially nice to have a desk and chair for her to work at as well as a small sitting area for me. Excellent location... More

My sister and I were on a tour and stayed one night in Taunton; very glad we chose The Castle. The decor is homey and welcoming, the staff were very pleasant and helpful, and the room was very nice. Loved it.

I stayed in this lovely historic building for the first time and initially was impressed. The setting is ideal. The surroundings are lovely and picturesque. The hotel has character and is situated very well for visits to this West Country town. The staff at The Castle are very friendly and efficient. When entering my bedroom I was, however, very disappointed.... More

After ordering two weeks ago for four adults and two children we got a seat in the lobby on a small table with no room for the children. Btw one of the seats smells of wee. After a quiet word with tony they put some tables together in the tea room so that we had space for the high chair.... More

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
