This hotel needs a good spring clean. It has clear potential but the cumulative effect of dirty carpets, dated decor and cosmetic blemishes creates an overall shabby impression. The buffet breakfast was an uninspiring experience both in terms of food quality and ambience. The place may be resting on the laurels of its superb location in historic Dunster, but £100 a night for a rather stuffy and small double room was too much. We felt like we were in an episode of the hotel inspector, before Ruth Watson has worked her magic.
