The room was excellent,the food was good and all the staff were pleasant and polite.The television didn't work in our room and somebody came to fix it but could only get ITV channels but promised to get it working on BBC the following day----nothing happened.Apart from that I have no complaints.

Beautiful hotel, excellent service, great breakfast and overall fantastic value for money. We booked late in the day from the Motorway as were driving south and were delighted when we arrived at the quality of the hotel for the money. It really was a pleasure to stay here and breakfast was fantastic.

Our room was very spacious and the bed very comfortable, the bathroom contained plenty of towels and had all the little extras we needed. However the water was only just hot enough for a shower and not hot enough if... More

The Castle has much to commend it. There is an appealing exterior, and a period feel as you enter. The public areas, although relatively small, ooze an olde worlde charm. But look beyond the surface and there are cracks. The Brazz, where breakfast and some meals are served, is entirely out of keeping with the rest of the hotel, with... More

Booked B & B as a Birthday treat for my husband. Disappointed to find that the same room was advertised the evening before arrival and the day of arrival at £85 less than the price when I booked the room. Receptionists at check in and check out were most unhelpful and there was no movement on the price. A gesture... More

Booked for 2 night stay, with breakfast. 1st impressions from outside the hotel looks very impressive. Check in was fine. When I got to my room I had a tiny room with a single... More

Called in after watching Somerset play cricket. Just drinks so no hotel rating here. From what I saw it's an impressive building with very good customer service. Loved the bar area. Well stocked and efficient service. A very pleasant setting.

The grand entrance is lovely as is the restaurant. My (single) room was small but quirky and fun. Good value for money and friendly helpful reception staff who were happy to help with directions when I was a bit lost in the morning! Would be a nice spot for a couples weekend

Avoid this place!! The rooms are incredibly expensive for what they are (outdated and very small). As if this wasn't bad enough, all of the staff that even bothered speaking to us were very rude. Overall, entirely unimpressed
