Reviews - The Luttrell Arms Hotel

3AA Assessed Hotel Ratings explained
Exmoor National Park , Dunster Nr Minehead, TA24 6SG
A beautiful 13th Century property set on a hillside in the quaint town of Dunster, located just 1 mile from the beach and even closer to the magnificent Dunster Castle. The hotel was used in medieval times as a guest house by the Abbots of Cleeve. Set in the only street in Dunster and within the Exmoor National Park, this sleepy hotel is an escapist’s paradise.

There are 28 bedrooms where guests enter and step back in time. Every room is unique and exquisitely furnished as if time had stood still. The magnificent four-poster beds are dwarfed by the high ceilings and exposed oak beams. In the winter the open fires glow and a very warm atmosphere is created throughout the hotel.

When dining there are two options to choose from in this intimate hotel. The Luttrell Arms Restaurant offers a more formal meal where the Head Chef has created some exciting meals based on the bests of modern British Cuisine. The bar which is styled as a traditional pub, serves meals that extend to the garden outside in the summer months for alfresco dining at its best.

Dunster is one of Somerset’s best kept secrets set between Exmoor National Park and The Bristol Channel. The village skyline is dominated by the castle standing on a hill that rises 85 metres above the sea. The home of the Luttrell family for over 600 years it is now a National Trust property. The Medieval village is a time capsule waiting to be discovered with history on every corner. There is even a steam railway to make sure the 21st Century is left well and truly behind.

Somerset offers much to see and do; there is something to suit every taste. There are a wealth of historic and famous castles and gardens, such as Dunster Castle, Wells Cathedral, Montacute House and Hestercombe Gardens. Great family attractions like Brean Leisure Park, Fleet Air Arms Museum, Haynes International Motor Museum, Wookey Hole and the Cheddar Caves. Plus stunning Natural Features such as Glastonbury Tor, Dunkery Beacon on Exmoor, Ham Hill Country Park and spectacular nature reserves such as Westhay, Ebbor Gorge and Tarr Steps.

Luttrell Arms Hotel ~ Dunster Week
We booked the hotel as a base while we were competing at Dunster Archery Week. The accommodation and food were of a very good standard both in the restaurant and in the bar. The staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly.

A traditional hotel in a traditional village
Its a nice traditional english hotel: nothing ultra modern, but very welcoming and comfortable . We had a room in a cottage which was originally next door to the hotel, with its own garden. It was lovely. But getting to it, we did begin to wonder where we were going (passages and doors). But we should not have worried.
We ate in the bar and enjoyed the food and the beer. Breakfast was also very nice.
Dunster is a nice place as well! Castle and railway definately worth visiting.

The Luttrell Arms has plenty of character, currently the hotel is being refurbished but this did not in any way spoil our stay. Staff could not do enough for us. For the price we paid we got exceptional value.
We dined at the Luttrell Arms on our last night eating our meal in front of a roaring fire, with a pint of good ale - excellent. The only downfall is the restaurant, there is no atmosphere.
We would stay again!!!

Mountain Biking Trip based in Dunster
The Luttrell Arms hotel provided a fantastically atmospheric base for a very demanding mountain biking trip on Exmoor and the Brendon Hills. Whilst the new owners clearly had their hands full bedding in their new acquisition, the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. We very much enjoyed the food and would love to stay again some time, especially if it was in the four poster room that one of our party had.

Food & Castle fit for a King!
Very friendly, helpful and unpretentious staff. Great food! Very cold and wet outside but my partner and I left with a very warm feeling. Well done to the new team at the hotel!
