Stayed here on their winter break special -two nights half board for £120pppn. Room 2, which others have mentioned is lovely, a good sized, well equiped room with a double aspect overlooking the Yarn Market and up the High St. to the Castle. Lots of narrow stairs and doors to negociate, so those with heavy luggage or disabilities would struggle, but once there, well worth it! The Hotel does not have a Bar (ignore the door that says 'Bar' - it isn't!) and therefore it would be nice to have a small fridge in the room especilly in summer. Parking wasn't too bad as the Season hasn't started, in fact most shops and attractions are still closed, but I should imagine in summer it must be terrible, although the (paying) car park is a 5 minute walk away. We found breakfast to be both ample and good - if you leave here hungry it is your fault! However, the evening meals in the resturant were not so good. I would not recommend the half-board, eat else where, and there a quite a few alternatives. The starters and 'puds' are good but on each night the mains were poor and we were not alone in complaining about the quality. The staff are excellent, friendly and efficient. Would I stay in Duster again? most likely yes, at the Yarn - no. The Dunster Castle Hotel only has six rooms but beautifully done, has a bar with friendly locals and parking. Didn't eat there, but the food looked very good. I would like to give the Castle a go next time, but apart from the evening meal the Yarn was very good and most likely better suited for families and dogs!
