The Castle at Taunton
Ranked #6 of 17 Hotels in Taunton
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Really good stay in the Castle, I felt that I was in a historic building (rather than a tacky revamp) with appropriate comforts. The staff were very helpful, I was on business in Taunton so I had a good rest before a busy day, the evening meal with my colleagues was in the Brazz but I returned in the evening to the restaurant inside the hotel for an Anniversary meal, the staff really worked hard and made a happy event, we had well presented and lovely food. Well done, highly recommended.

Stayed: July 2014, traveled on business

The Castle hotel is a great hotel with loads of history and truly a fantastic service. This was my second overnight stay at the hotel for work purposes so I looked forward to the room service, comfortable bed and good nights sleep. Its based in the centre of Taunton and there is a nice little square outside that leads into town if you fancy a walk after dinner.

Returned to this hotel as a married woman, having stayed here with my parents and brother in 1978 for christmas.


A little run down , but only a little.

Everything else is just as good as I remembered.
Very comfortable very quiet and just a very good breakfast.

Room Tip: Chose a garden room.

This hotel is quite simply superb, and truly one of a kind. Our room was beautifully made up, and the bathroom was spotlessly clean. The hotel itself is in the centre of town, just a short walk to the main shopping streets, and the wonderful Museum of Somerset is right outside. We ate both dinner and breakfast at the stylish BRAZZ restaurant, and both meals were fantastic, with excellent service. This hotel really was the icing on the cake for our stay in Taunton - thank you!

A really nice hotel, a really nice location on the square and a beautiful summer evening thrown in for good measure. The Castle was a very pleasant surprise for an overnight stay for a business trip to Taunton. Comfortable room and bed. Hotel bar and braserie restaurant lack a bit of character but plenty of other options nearby.

Room Tip: Looking onto square at front was nice

Needs TLC throughout.
Rooms are basic with mattresses that have had a lot of use.
Very noisy at night till about 1am as there is a popular pub un front.
No aircon unless you consider opening the window wide open zircon.
Lunch was very good, dinner was a disaster (need to rethink it seriously)
Staff were very pleasant and helpful.

this was our fifith visit to The Castle. Every one of the staff were charming and could not do enough for us.
We ate twice in the Brazz and the food was excellent as always.
The bedrooms do vary in standard, but even the lower standard are very clean and comfortable.
We want to go back as often as possible !
