The Luttrell arms is one of my favourite hotels, and i always visit when in the area. Visited today, saturday lunch and it was really busy. The staff were great, as was the Emoor ale. Fish and chips was unfortunately poor, due to poor piece of fish being overcooked. Still really enjoy visiting hotel, but will avoid eating when busy.

We visit the luttrells a lot , we love the place ,the atmosphere,the staff and the food are always amazing so it was very disappointing to come for the exmoor food festival and find they had run out of certain things. We booked 2 weeks in advance but could only get an 8 30 booking, one of my party was...

Staying for 1 night we decided to arrive early for some lunch, greeted by attentive happy staff too show us the tables that where available, once decided what we where...

The booking was effortless and friendly, the rate was excellent for the quality of the Hotel, our rooms were large for an...

There are many beautiful little towns sprinkled throughout England and Dunster is one of the VERY BEST and The Luttrell Arms is the ideal place to stay. Dunster also contains an old market place with an easy walk to its impressive castle on the hill overlooking the town.

The Luttrell Arms exceeds expectations on every level. Great food, welcoming and friendly service, and gorgeous rooms. Great place to hunker down on a rainy day in a comfy armchair by the fireside! Can't wait to go back there!

We booked a table for four in order to participate in the Exmoor Food Festival. We enjoyed an excellent 3 course lunch for only £15.00 per head. Service was impeccable. If this was a 'lost leader' promotion to encourage us to re-visit it worked!! We will certainly be back.

Having stayed in this hotel many years ago, it was with memories of a superb hotel that surely couldn't be improved upon. Upon our recent visit we found a hotel that excelled in everything one could dream of in luxury. From entering the Luttrell Arms, to the ambience of every room, one (or in our case 2) couldn't wish for...

Yet another wonderful stay at the lovely Luttrell. It is difficult to prevent myself repeating from previous reviews. This time we stayed in Room 14 which was gorgeous, vast & beautifully appointed. Once again, we were able to have access to our room earlier than the offical check in time which is not expected but very much appreciated. Of course...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Luttrell Arms is a 3 star, 28 room hotel. Set in the medieval village of Dunster with its many interesting buildings, under the shadow of the Castle and within the Exmoor National Park. The privately owned 14th century Luttrell Arms is surrounded by beautiful countryside making it the ideal destination for that weekend break or midweek getaway. Stroll around the village, walk the moor, or just sit by a log fire in a building where hospitality has been a way of life for hundreds of years. Heritage "If you could bottle the air in the bar at the Luttrell Arms and sell it you'd clean up" so wrote a local journalist. The smell of logs burning on the fire, a hint of hops from the pints of ale, add to this the smell of something aromatic being cooked in the kitchen, and the most essential element - the smell of history, it oozes out of the walls which have stood for 800 years. There are many outstanding architectural features, the medieval hall with its hammer beam roof (room 17) and twelve light window. History seeps out of the blackened frames, which had their glass rattled loose as Cromwell’s gunners laid siege to Dunster Castle from a defended strong point at the end of the garden. Cromwell’s Commander, Col. Robert Blake walked the corridors of the hotel, it was then called the Ship Inn and was used as his headquarters throughout the siege of the castle. Also of note is some very fine plasterwork on the ceiling of the lounge downstairs, and the plaster over mantle in room 12, showing Actaeon being devoured by hounds. The Arms of Luttrell that we use today carry us back to a Gentleman of 1261, the crest takes us only back to 1621, but the supporters are directly derived from one of the Barons who coerced King John into sealing Magna Carta. A more modern visitor is Hercule Poirot. In "The Cornish Mystery" he confronts the murderer in one of the hotel’s bedrooms. ... more   less
