              Welcoming staff, very good facilities, value for money and good food.

            • Single
              8.0

              Beautiful building set in good location. Helpful and friendly staff.

              Very small car park - once in its hard to manoevre round if its full.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              We visited Taunton for a family event.

              The hotel was superb. The traditional luxury, service, ambience was excellent. The staff really cared about your experience with the hotel. If only other hotels behaved like this one !,

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              Staff very good and friendly. Room and en suite great quality. Brasserie good but sorry that the main restaurant has been closed

            • Older travelers
              6.2

              Unfortunately the resident restaurant is now closed and a non resident bistro is the only place for dinner that is available. This has the knock on effect of making the hotel appear empty with no buzz or ambience at all. The staff could "sell" the facilities better such as the garden and make the guests feel a lot more pampered than they do currently.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              Comfort of room and tasteful furnishings. Good room service and variety of drinks on hospitality tray. It was lovely to stay in such a historic building.

              Room service needed due to health problems of some of the party during stay. Would have liked a little more choice on room service menu.

            • Older travelers
              6.2

              Easy place to get where we wished to go

              Standards have dropped over last year, breakfast is poor and expensive.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              Very nice location, beautiful hotel, very comfortable room and excellent breakfast! We would come back there anytime. It's a favourite.

            • Single
              6.2

              Great location on Castle Green (not green anymore but a car park) with a good outlook and had a lot of old world charm. Very spacious reception area

              You cannot, I suppose, have old world charm and bang up to date facilities at the same location, but the room in which I stayed, a single, was rather small. £15 for breakfast is quite expensive for Taunton - I had an evening meal at a very good local French restaurant for only £2 more!!!

            • Couple
              6.2

              impressive buildung, nice & big room,

              very noisy to the street, toliet flush out of order, troubles during check-out because of false price, breakfast too expensive (offer was very lousy for 16 GBP)

            • Couple
              5.8

              We booked the hotel because of the excellent michelin-star restaurant. This does not exist any more.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Bedroom and bathroom immaculately clean, nice decor in bedroom, nice view. Hotel very impressive to look at from outside. Plenty of car parking space. Can not comment on food as didn't dine there. Very pretty garden to side.

            • Single
              10.0

              Excellent meal in the Brasserie , and breakfat was very good indeed. Hotel well appointed. Good location in Taunton

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              Wonderful location and a wonderful building full of history and located on the High Street

              Although my breakfast was fantastic (I always have the freshly cooked smoked haddock ) my friends said their cooked breakfast off the range wasn't hot enough.

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              Excellent location.

              No dining facilities on the Saturday evening due to the restaurant being closed for a wedding.
