We wanted to be right in the centre of Dunster village and this Hotel run under the new ownership of John and Lisa Richardson is a credit to both of them. Well done. The helpfulness and quality of everything was a lesson hotels charging a lot more could take a lesson from. The French onion soup was excellent as was... More

Wow, this is the third time I have stopped at the castle, but the first time since John & Lisa have taken over, we stopped in the stables this time, just to the right of the arch, it has everything you need , it's not a massive bathroom, but perfectly adequate, has shower, and is functional, large bedroom, with large...

This hotel has a great central location in Dunster, very close to the castle’s pedestrian entrance. Dunster is a delightful medieval village; there are plenty of interesting places within an easy walk of the hotel. The hotel had been open for a few weeks; we had a most enjoyable one-night stay and didn’t really notice some things being work in... More

Had a lovely two night stay. Room was very clean and dinner in the restaurant was superb. All the staff were incredibly attentive and friendly. Once home I found out friends will be getting married in Dunster next year and so I am looking forward to staying once again at The Dunster Castle Hotel. I would highly recommend staying here.

We went there for dinner - it was a great evening , but dont go there for a Sunday lunch unfortunately not up to standard and quite expensive,but the staff are attentive and polite. Still a bit in early stages of refurb I think.

I visited this hotel with my family for a two night stay in mid-August. We had a lovely and very relaxed time. We had two bedrooms between the four of us, and both were clean, well-appointed and tastefully decorated. We ate in the restaurant for both nights of our stay, and the food was exceptional! The chefs are very talented,... More

We stayed in Dunster in mid-July and had two fabulous meals at The Dunster Castle Hotel. The desserts were particularly amazing. John and Lisa Richardson had taken it over only six weeks before and had done a wonderful job of the refurbishment, giving the bar and dining areas a welcoming, modern feel. We can't say enough good things about John... More

Dunster is a lovely chilled little town with some nice pubs and cafes and a few shops. Good base to visit Minehead and Porlock Weir. Lots to see in Dunster castle which also accesses the working water mill in the price. The hotel is in transition so be patient and you'll love it. The new owners are fabulous. Free parking... More

My teenage daughter and I stayed here for one night. Dunster itself is a stunning village and the hotel certainly lived up to the expectations of the village. We arrived quite weary, and once I had figured out where the car park (through the arch for anyone else shattered when they arrive!), the welcome was warm and most hospitable. The... More
