“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We stayed on a short break deal. Cannot fault the care and attention we received for the whole stay. Delightful well appointed rooms (bit noisy facing the street), superb breakfasts cooked and presented to perfection. Evening dining was a treat with wide selection of wines and a small but ecletic menu deal. All this in a wonderful historic village.

Excellent food, welcoming staff. Did not feel rushed. Good value two course lunch. Thoroughly enjoyed the cider. Comfortable dining room. Toilets clean and well kept. The hotel was quiet but as it was Ferbruary and we deliberately chose to visit before the kids holidays it's what we expected.

Room Tip: Certainly go for the lunch menu offer.

A very comfortable hotel with delicious food. Very helpful staff and a quiet night! Will be visiting again soon. Staff reorganised rooms so that my elderly aunt could be in the next room to my husband and I. Nothing too much trouble for them.

Saturday 26th Jan we held my husbands 80th Birhday bash here, our family range in age from 80 to 10 yrs old, all 35 of us gave 10 out of 10 for the whole evening, food fabulous, bar prices reasonable, staff wonderful from Tim (manager ) James ( chef ) to waitresses, bar staff, oh everybody. We took over hotel ( all rooms ) people travelled from all parts of country, I can honestly say this hotel can in no way be faulted. THANK YOU so much for the best evening and stay ever. may you go from strength to strength.

If you are looking for lovely homely food and a nice roaring fire to go with it then you will go to the right place if you call in here. We didn't arrive for lunch until after 3 but that wasn't a problem and the meals were excellent.

Our crowd took over the hotel for the weekend, and were delighted by the experience. The manager and his wife are charming, and certainly know how to party! The rooms are spotless, beds comfortable, warm and welcoming. The bar, into which locals come, has pub prices (rare in my experience) and breakfast was very good indeed. I will definitely stay here again, and cannot recommend the place highly enough. Outstanding!

Called in to see advertised bar menu as we were in Dunster but didn`t want to eat in a restaurant necessarily. We were surprised to be told that the bar meals in the evening were the same as those in the restaurant and the same price, despite the different surroundings. Its a shame they don`t provide reasonably priced bar meals in the evenings for those of us who want something simple.
