Old hotel and with a distinctive Wisteria covered frontage just off the main high street in Taunton. Staff very friendly and helpful, room was a good size with a sizable bathroom. Shower over bath was very good. Breakfast very good and we ate an evening meal in Brazz, which was also very good and notable for local fresh produce. Overall...

In May 2017 we had our wedding reception at The Castle Hotel. Louise was great, very happy to organise everything that we needed – including menu choices, seating plan and name place settings. We were able to bring our own music, cake and flowers. The food was fantastic – everyone enjoyed it and they catered for all dietary requirements. The...

Excellent staff - courteous, helpful and eager to please. A little bit old fashioned, "faded glory" but comfortable, clean and accommodating. Outside, the front was covered in wisteria, which framed all of the guest room windows ! My room was very pleasant and comfortable. Supposedly rather good restaurant was closed for half the week [ the half we were there!]....

A brief visit confirmed my expectations. Quaint old style hotel set in it's ways offering plush style. Catering was good, personal attention to service was good well located in Town Centre. Only negative being the limited car park if the hotel is full with a function and traffic access first thing rush hour. A quality establishment requiring a little modernisation...

Many thanks to the staff at The Castle, Taunton for their amazing hospitality today. We had a fabulous afternoon in the Wisteria Room, the sandwiches and cakes were plenty and very yummy!! Staff were on hand with top-ups of tea and coffee throughout the afternoon and were accommodating and helpful throughout. Thank you again!!

The rooms are comfortable and clean and the location is right in the middle of town with easy access to local restaurants. I have eaten in the brasserie in the hotel and this has been...

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...
