About the hotel
Dunster Castle Hotel combines contemporary style with traditional comfort at the foot of the historic National Trust property of Dunster Castle, in Exmoor National Park. With the convenience of medieval Dunster's only private car park, guests can choose between 3 dining areas serving local produce in a mix of traditional, modern and fusion styles, then retreat to the sumptuously designed en-suite bedrooms to look over Dunsters cobbled street or tuck into bed and watch a film on your SMART TV. The 8 beautifully appointed bedrooms range from our premier rooms with views over Dunsters cobbled street through to more economical options for budget conscious travellers who still wish to have the facilities of our hotel.
The Dunster Castle Hotel has the cosy snug bar where guests can relax on leather sofas in low beamed medieval comfort or drink and dine in our Piano Restaurant & Cocktail Bar all of which serve exciting locally produced food and drink to order, making adjustments where possible to cater for our guests’ dietary requirements. The Dunster Castle Hotel prides itself on its menu where local beef, lamb, pork, fish and fresh vegetables are transformed into culinary delights by our team of chefs' led by Head Chef Lauren Smith. There is a large function room called The Great hall which is serviced by the steam carriage bar and soon to be completed Station Courtyard. Off The Great Hall is the conservatory which opens out onto our beer garden area with views towards Dunster Castle, Conyger Tower and the church. The hotel has a large, free for guests, private car park with monitored parking for 26 cars. The hotel is ideal for couples, families, walkers and business guests alike, and is ideally positioned to explore the beautiful area of Exmoor National Park with many Exmoor pubs and restaurants close by. Excellent base for walkers, cyclists and varied outdoor activities why not try us for a short break. We have a ground floor room which allows for guests' dogs.

This was a very good weekend away.
From the warm welcome on arrival to the time of departure it was a pleasant experience. Dunster is a gem, a time warp, and the hotel is right in the middle of it, offering comfort, good food and friendliness.
You get what you pay for
We paid £70 for a nights accommodation, as this was for one night only we did not wish to upgrade to £125.
The room was incredibly small and the double bed filled the room. The bed itself was most uncomfortable - the mattress being past its best. We have dinner in the restaurant which was lovely but the table was not clean being really sticky. The young man who checked us in was very helpful but he seemed to be jack of all trades doing everything.
