The historic hotel just oozes English-ness as you approach the rather grand facade which is draped in a giant wisteria and the interior has the feel and atmosphere of a country house. The teams of young staff are all very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. We were attending a private function and the food was just exquisite, prepared and served to the highest quality. Our room was twice the size expected, huge queen size bed, the quietest flushing loo on the planet and the room seemed to be soundproofed to the rest of the world, sleep was not a problem. Breakfast was either full service or help yourself. My solitary croissant was soon replaced by a panic attack to choose between eggs Florentine or a full English when I started seeing fellow guests choices arriving. Great hotel, Great staff, Great weekend, Great host, thank you Kit and all your staff.GOOGLE REVIEW

This hotel is located in the heart of Taunton in a quadrangle surrounded by an old castle. The hotels stone facade is stunning,covered in ivy and medieval in origin. The interior is beautifully appointed with antique furnishings enhanced by vaulted ceilings, giving a feeling of opulence. The restaurants, bars and hospitality areas are again of a very high standard. The bedrooms are a little outdated with a distinct 80’s feel but have comfortable beds with clean bathrooms featuring a shower and bath. There was a space heater, iron and tea making facilities in the wardrobe. Avoid front facing rooms as late night revellers are noisy and can keep you awake. The buffet breakfast was comprehensive and delicious with full English and continental options. The restaurant offered food to a high culinary standard in delightful surroundings. My only criticism was the slow service in the bar. The staff seem to be predominantly young and possibly not as experience as senior staff. Regardless, I loved this hotel with its county feel redolent of the old Trust House Forte hotels of my youth!GOOGLE REVIEW

Delightful historic building part of the castle buildings, even has a portcullis. Beautiful inside and out. Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are incredible! Not a bad price for a luxury stay either.GOOGLE REVIEW
