Stayed here a while back (April 2016) but only just gotten into writing Travelzoo reviews so wanted to go back and get this one in as it was such a fantastic weekend. We got a deal for dinner, room and breakfast at a really reasonable price considering the standard of the room and the food. Dunster is a lovely place...

There were 5 of us and we all chose either roast beef or pork. The starter was excellent followed by one of the worst roast lunches we have ever had. The pork was dry. It was served with Yorkshire pudding (!!!??) all were huge but leathery and difficult to cut into. None of us ate them. There were two very...

It doesn't look like much from the road. The typical Hotel without much of a frontage. But as you enter - it is a quaint old hotel with plenty of nookes and crannies. They are still extending it but don't seem to be spoiling the old charm of the place. It isn't the cheapest but there is a good choice...

Special Indian meal evening at £33 per head. This is supposed to be the best hotel/restaurant in the area. When we arrived the carpet in the restaurant was 'rucked' up, a danger for people to trip up, guests arrived to earth in the restaurant dressed in shorts, and the food 'well' absolute rubbishy, and seriously quantity over quality. Do not...

Visited the beautiful village and castle and having stayed at its sister hotel in Dartmouth last year, we were keen to explore the Luttrell. We knew all would be well when as we arrived the owner was carrying a guests luggage and less than five minutes he was supervising the removal of water from a pathway to the lovely garden....

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
