We decided to have a 'holiday at home' weekend and booked into The Castle for 2 nights, despite living locally. Outstanding! 2 fabulous evening meals in Brazz and then the fine dining restaurant Castle Bow (quality locally-sourced ingredients make all the difference); breakfast eggs cooked to perfection; Mark the General Manager and Adam in Brazz both incredibly professional, attentive and...

Last evening we had dinner at The Castle Bow Restaurant and it was superb. From start to finish the food was exceptional and the service immaculate. If you are looking for great food in the South West, look no further. Well done to the whole team up and below stairs, it was a truly memorable evening and we will be...

Just spent a wonderfully indulgent weekend at The Castle. We ate wonderful food and were looked after by all the staff, they couldn't do enough for us. Would highly recommend a visit and can't wait till our next stay at The Castle.

We have met up with our friends from Cardiff, at The Castle, a number of times before, and have thoroughly enjoyed it, but were disappointed this time, not to be able to have lunch in the main restaurant. The brasserie wasn't nearly as special, and although the starters were good, and the main meal pasta dishes too, my lamb dish...

After an unfortunate stay in the height of Christmas party season we were able to review this hotel now as first class in every department. The food is of outstanding quality and the restaurant staff are extremely well trained in the presentation of it . It is a rare treat to be able to have dogs stay and we certainly...

Booked through a hotel comparison site so got a great value deal. Had got married from the Castle Hotel 14 years ago so jumped at the chance of a night away from family responsibilities to catch up with old friends and see a concert at the nearby fantastic Brewhouse Theatre. Lovely room overlooking the rooftops of Taunton and distant views...

Surroundings wonderful. Reception staff exceptional. Service in both bar and restaurant excellent. We arrived to use a gift of Afternoon Tea. How special we felt. The dining room plush, silver teapots, quality white linen and excellent waiter service. The food was glorious (and I am very particular). Good selection of sandwiches, then both plain and fruited scones with a very...

Excellent location and very nice property. The staff are great and make you feel welcome. I booked a deluxe double as it was on offer, and it is very comfortable and spacious. Maybe the rooms are due for a refurb but that would be my only negative, but they are clean and tidy, it is an old castle after all,...
