Hotel description Castle at Taunton

Run by the Chapman family for the past 60 years, the historic Castle at Taunton has in this time won a host of awards for the warmth of its hospitality and the excellence of its kitchens.

In an age where hotels are links in a chain, The Castle is one of a kind and remains determindly independent - its individuality founded on the best traditions of warm hospitality and personal attention.

The Castle has been welcoming travellers for over a thousand years and today is more family and home than hotel and business. The theme being warmth and a sense of welcome rather than anodyne designer chic.

"Local" is the watchword with fish and seafood from Brixham, and game - feathered and furred from Exmoor and the Quantocks.  All served in BRAZZ, the unbuttoned, modern brasserie.

All of this in the heart of Somerset, England's magnificent West Country. Discover Lorna Doone's Exmoor, King Arthur's Glastonbury and the cathedrals of Wells and Exeter.



car parking is charged at £5.00 per night for guests and complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the hotel bedrooms, meeting rooms and pubic areas. Reception hours: Every day: from 12:00 AM to 12:00 AM

Beautiful building - superb location. Being told we could be fitted in to eat in Castle Bow restaurant by the manager when told at reception it was fully booked.

The noise outside the front in the early hours (people shouting in courtyard). Delivery lorries noise too but that's understandable if this is the only way they can reach the hotel to deliver.
