    Fabulous

    Nice warm welcome, very pleasant over the 'phone too. (The guy said 'Fantastic!' about the prospect of our arrival.) Lovely room and bathroom, with plenty of space. There were blinds behind the curtains to ensure the room was dark.

    We were disappointed that the room didn't have air conditioning. It was a warm night and our hotness disturbed our sleep.

    Very good

    Really lovely large room with good sized bathroom

    The breakfast. It was extreemly expensive and too few staff in dining room/Kitchen to cope with the volume of guests. We waited 20-30 minutes for the tureens in the hot buffet to be filled with food and tyhen it disappeared in seconds as all the other guests in the breakfast room were experiencing the same problems.

    Amazing service from lovely helpful staff. Fabulous room, eventhough it was a single it was a reasonable size & had a large bathroom.

    The only problem was being able to hear the TV in the next room & people in the corridor - probably cos both were loud when people were drunk later in the evening!

    I had stayed at the Castle in 1987 on my honeymoon , I live in Dallas Texas, my wife loved the Hotel then, my mother is English, and I was married in Hatch Beauchamp. Since then the Hotel seems to have retained it's charm and class. I have written a book about my mother an evacuee during the war who was evacuated to Hatch and spent the war at Hatch Court. She often talked about how wonderful the dances were at the Castle during the war. My late father, an American soldier loved the Hotel. I included a few stories about the Hotel in the book. It has remained a fond memory for my family over 70 years. Well Done.

    Nothing, everything was excellant. The only comment I would have was I ordered a Grand Mariner to my room and got a straight brandy instead- a minor inconvienence at best.

    Very much enjoyed my stay at the Castle, and would certainly recommend. Welcoming and comfortable; a traditional family-run hotel of the highest quality. Bedroom was spacious and well-equipped, with a comfortable bed. Breakfast in the hotel was excellent. Location central and convenient parking just outside the front door.

    My only disappointment was the restaurant, Brazz - perhaps because I'd read so many positive reports. On-line booking was easy and efficient, and the atmosphere, layout and welcome were contemporary and relaxing. The menu looked fairly imaginative. However my seafood chowder starter, though fine, came minus a spoon, and when one finally arrived it was more chilled than I was then feeling. The main course venison faggots were tasty, but were swimming in half an inch of watery gravy (more water than gravy!) which appeared careless. Hopefully this was just an off-night, because overall the Castle Hotel scores highly.

    Superb

    Friendly staff. Lovely building. Hotel was very happy with my extremely late check in time. Nothing seemed to be a problem to them.

    I stayed on a Saturday night, and the noise from drunken Night Clubbers outside my window went on until around 5am! - Not the fault of the hotel but also not condusive to sleeping.

    Very pleasant hotel with friendly, helpful and informative staff. Has a pleasant old-time quality, but facilities are modern and clean. Main staircase a very impressive feature. Dinner in the brasserie was superb, and matched the standard of the Rick Stein places in Cornwall where we had dine for the previous two nights. Buffet breakfast very good too.

    Fabulous

    The location is ideal for visiting Taunton and surrounding areas. The attached restaurant has excellent food and the staff are very good indeed. Possibly one of the best breakfasts I have had in an hotel for a long time.

    It was difficult to get served in the small bar. One member of staff and he kept disappearing.

    Very good

    Hotel decor is lovely, lots of comfy places to sit in little nooks and crannies. Staff very friendly and helpful.

    didnt realise breakfast wasnt included in the price. so when came to check out had a bit of a shock when an extra 60 quid was added to the bill for 2 of us for 2 nights

    Fabulous

    It is well located for business visits in Taunton and the surrounding areas. Rooms and beds are very comfortable.

    Ongoing building work in the neighbouring buildings is rather noisy - you could not have a lie in if you wanted one! But fine for a business trip when you are up and out most of the day. The is a lack of assistance with suitcases and bags when checking in, I had to do two trips to my car and up a number of stairs to settle into my room, although I rang the reception on check out to ask for help and it was given happily. Brazz is a nice bistro for supper, and there are lots of other eateries nearby.

    We asked for a quiet room,we wre put in a room overlooking the car park ,a wedding was on we stayed in room 18 .At ioclock two drunk quests came into room 17 and carried on a noisy party in there room untill 5 oclock ,i could not find a porter and the occupants of room17 came out and told me to do one !!!!!they were young he said . So do not book the hotel if you were celebrating your 40th wedding anniversary like we were or were hoping for a quite weekend . When i conplained they said the had had problem with those quests,and gave us £50 of of our bill for a ruined anniversary and spoilt weekend.

    Superb

    Depending on the room it can be a bit noisy outside. Expensive when compared to other hotels I have stayed in where breakfast was included. To have breakfast was another £31.00. We had breakfast in a cafe for under £20.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location was excellent for the purposes of our trip

    Room comfort level was moderate and staffing of the bar often seemed problematic.
