The Castle at Taunton
Ranked #7 of 17 Hotels in Taunton
Reviewed 6 October 2009

Hired 2 rooms at the castle for our wedding. I stayed the night before with my bridesmaid, from the very start the staff were really helpful and accomadating, with all our requests. I then stayed withh my husband for the next two nights. The staff did everyting the could to make our wedding perfect and the service continued to be exceptional until the moment we left. I was concerend about booking a venue so far from home, but I can not see how we could have choosen better. Yes it is expensive, but you get more than you pay for, the breakfast was excellent (and I'm fussy), the rooms are huge and very comfortable and the staff have a 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude. Throughly recommended, for weddings or holiday breaks.

We returned to the Castle to celebrate our Silver Wedding anniversary: the Service and Welcome we recived were second to none, and the Restaurant was equally of a very high standard. We won't be leaving it another 25 years before we return!

Just a short stay but enjoyable. The room was comfortable with a great view and good facilities. Restaurant was expensive and not perfect but the staff are attentive. Breakfast is excellent all organic, local etc etc. The decor is a bit incongrous with the age and style of building but it was clean and well presented. I would happily go back for longer.

I had long wanted to stay at this hotel on one of our regular visits to the West Country but not again. There are aspects of this hotel which are very pleasing but the noise from the function suite makes sleep before midnight - at least on a Friday and especially on a Saturday night - impossible. The disco blares out with every word of every song pounding through the hotel. And the staff think this is acceptable! "It only goes on until midnight!" was their response. So this is not a place to stay if you are hoping to sleep before the early hours..

We found the Castle Hotel at Taunton really very nice. It is a charming "old English style" hotel, very well kept. Rooms are very spacious and welcoming, beds are very confortable and bathrooms are big. Breakfast is absolutely high quality with very tasty food, all organic and locally produced. The home produced muesli, jams and marmelades are worth a detour. There is a beautiful garden with tables.

Chintzy overpriced stuffy hotel. Stayed there due to a recent visit to Taunton. Found service far short of what I expect from a four star hotel. Also nothing is complimentary including newspapers! Very chintzy and 1990s decor. Nothing modern. The only redeeming feature is the english breakfast which is above average.

One to avoid

The hotel facilities are good but the restaurant and bar are very disappointing.The bar seems to have been modernised but lacks charm and atmosphere.In the restaurant one is totally in the hand of staff whose English is very limited. There was no supervision by more experienced staff. It seems that they like to seat people closely together even when the restaurant was largely empty.Again there was a lack of atmosphere. Food was good but portions tiny, very nouvelle cuisine.Car parking is difficult and there is a lot of outside noise as the hotel is in the middle of a number of pubs nearby.One senses faded glory whose owners have lost interest.
