We came as a couple (using a groupon voucher) for 2 nights to this very pretty location, the hotel is nestled within a steep sided combe with an attractive garden with some fine specimen trees.
The hotel had previously been a house and adjoining industrial buildings. All carefully restored to retain features where appropriate.
We arrived early for check-in, but no problem as we were offered tea and coffee while we waited for the few minutes it took for the room to be completed. We had been upgraded to the 'Garden Suite' (thank you!), which used to be an old tannery, we were very comfortable there.
Breakfast was excellent, as was the cream tea with champagne, (the best scones I've ever had). The evening meal was a bit mixed as our order was lost and we had to wait ages. I guess accidents happen, they were very apologetic.
All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. We didn't see the rooms in the main part of the hotel so can't say anything about staying there. I'd be surprised if the floors didn't creak though, it's that sort of a building. We enjoyed our brief stay and would consider a return visit when we are in the area again.
The Groupon offer price seemed about right, the 'discounted from' price on Groupon would be excessive. I note that actual prices (from a web search) are nearer to the price we paid.
Dunster Castle is a 'must visit' if you're in the area, we also went to Coleridge's House, we'd expected it to be a short visit, but stayed an hour and a half, mainly due to the great welcome from the National Trust volunteers.
