Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Dunster is a great place to visit and stay AND Exmoor House in Dunster was great in every way. Comfortable bed, top notch facilities, no hassle with anything and perfect for our quiet weekend getaway. Could not fault it.

A really charming and well-run bed and breakfast in the best part of Dunster - a bit quieter than the main High street area and with two routes into the Castle grounds just over the road and viable (because generally there is a bit of a shortage in Dunster!) on road parking along the opposite side. There is a friendly pub right next door and a really lovely Italian restaurant next door but one. We had a good-sized room on the garden side of the house, it was extremely peaceful and comfortable and very good value for money. A great base from which to enjoy the delights of Dunster, the pretty villages around and the North Somerset coast. Highly recommend.

Lovely B&B in gorgeous village. Owners were so friendly and couldn’t do enough for you - added touches like assigned milk and water in the fridge. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice. Room was great and bed was very comfy. Definitely recommend and would go back. Dunster Castle and Gardens across the road are a must-visit while staying!

Great location in Dunster with a parking spot on the road opposite. It was an easy walk into town to local restaurants/hotels plus an easy walk to the castle...an attraction not to be missed. Dunster is a medieval village, but also a good spot to use as a base for trips to places such as Lynton/Lynmouth for the water powered railway. We would stay there again. Welcoming hosts.

Very warm welcome and a beautiful house. The room was large and well equipped, also a nice bathroom with everything you need. The breakfast table lovingly set with cloth napkins and the breakfast quite excellent. Really very charming hosts.

Excellent place to stay, right in the middle of Dunster. Loads to do in the area. The hosts (James and Jane) were very friendly and helpful. Lovely breakfasts. Very clean, comfortable bed. We has a room at the back of Exmoor House and it was the quietest room we have ever stayed in (I am a light sleeper).
