Four of us went for afternoon tea. Wonderful choice of teas and a lovely spread consisting of scones with cream and jam of course, finger sandwiches of white and brown bread, various cakes and a dessert each. A thoroughly decadent and enjoyable time was enjoyed by all.

We went here for my eldest daughters 18th. What can I say, food was superb, staff dedicated, attentive and went the extra mile, Definitely a place to revisit and even just for a meal versus the average restaurant scene of the town. The Castle Hotel is like Buzz Lightyear.... it goes above and beyond! Thanks Castle Hotel for making my...

What a magnificent hotel, staff were very friendly and helpful, room was spacious with good quality toiletries. The bed was really comfy and lovely bedding. Had room service in the morning for breakfast, and the breakfast was really good, so much to choose from and of really good quality.

The hotel is a wonderment all on its own. The rooms are a good size, the accommodations are very plush and there is a tremendous amount of rich history in the castle itself. It is, without a doubt a must stay location. Pricing isn't terrible either.

Another wonderful stay at The Castle for the New Year celebrations. We arrived a few days early to enjoy the whole Castle experience. Excellent dinner in Brazz, and outstanding food and wine in the Bow restaurant. The New Year Gala dinner was huge fun with a great 'wine flight' . We also treated ourselves to a very indulgent and memorable...

We held our Wedding Reception at The Castle Hotel on Christmas Eve and it was truly magical. From the moment I arrived the night before, the staff could not do enough for me. The hotel was decorated beautifully for Christmas with an amazing chandelier of lights down the staircase - perfect for photos. The day ran so smoothly. Staff were...

Great food and service in the Bow room; but evening totally spoilt by presentation of charge on departure for £3 parking. The owner of this hotel was at one point a leader in the revolution in West Country eating standards. Sadly, now a lost leader. How anyone could choose to sour a great £100+ eating evening by presenting a three...

Dear Richard K Thank you for posting a review. I would advise joining our Castle Card program which would have given you £10 back on your card if you spent £100. This would have more than covered your parking charge. If you contract me at the hotel I would be delighted to arrange a card for you. Best regards Marc

4 of us visited the Castle hotel in mid December for afternoon high tea as a special treat for my mother's 80th birthday. This was without doubt a very civilised affair, set in a small but beautifully decorated art deco room, warm and comfortable. We were shown to our table and seated by a very nice young man (Gabriel) and...

We arrived as a party of 9 to be sat straightaway. We had booked 3 months ago fearing it would be busy in The holiday Christmas period but, they claimed to have no booking but lots of space! The bread and real butter was really fresh. The food was delicious. The steaks were cooked really well to individual's preferences and...

We attended a wedding on Christmas Eve and it was truly magical. From the moment we arrived the staff were lovely and so welcoming. Rooms were spotlessly clean and the food was amazing.
