We ate at the Castle Hotel today and Pam looked after us. She was so helpful that I had to write a review for her. Thank you Pam, it was so good to get out after being locked down all year and you were super friendly and professional. Thank you for sorting out some fabulous vegan options for us and looking after us so well.

The Castle is a beautiful building & even more so when the Christmas decorations are up. It has a superb ambience with every staff member we encountered friendly & helpful. Our room was spotlessly clean and whilst a little dated, perfectly comfortable. The food in the connected Brazz restaurant was faultless. The monkfish in particular was delicious. Throughout our stay we felt the Covid precautions were spot on. We're already planning our next stay & investigating things to do locally.

This is truly a loverly hotel to stay at. My check-in was meet with a big smile and welcome. The staff member who booked me in was so kind, friendly, helpful, and polite, it was a pleasure to book in. I was given an upgrade on top of that loverly welcome . Thank you so much. All the staff were very nice and friendly could not do enough for me. Food was great, and perfectly cooked, hot and looked very nice and tasted even better. The room was warm, very clean well layed out and my request that I had asked for had been done as well, thanks housekeeping. I must say this hotel has a magnificent feel about the place, it feels so peaceful. I would recommend this hotel to everyone it's truly a hidden gem in Taunton. I will without doubt be staying here again as its worth every penny you pay for it. A big thank you to all the staff, you should be so proud of what you all do at the castle as its working well, it's so simple, Happy staff. Happy guest's. The management should also be proud of their staff as they are representing you perfectly. Kind regards Gary.
