About the hotel
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.

Poor value for money
This hotel tries to be what, in our experience, it is not.
Only offered a room only booking. Our room was compact and had very little storage space for clothes, etc. Just a couple of shelves, two small drawers in the bedside unit plus a medium hanging space. Once we had opened the curtains and windows in our room, builders were outside our window shovelling cement when we arrived. No warning was given to us about this prior to our arrival. On complaining we were offered another room but this would have been no better. The presence of builders had a negative impact on the rooms ambience and our privacy
The food was only average. We could not get a table in the bar to eat so had to eat in the restaurant, using the a la carte menu. Some other hotel residents ate in the restaurant using the bar menu. We were not given this option. Breakfast was poor. The menu seemed generous but what arrived was small and not well prepared. One meal had to go back as it was not cooked properly. Breakfast was charged as an extra
The hotel would have fared better in our review had they been proactive with issues - building and booking for bar meals, rather than belatedly reactive
The Luttrell Arms was a excellent choice for a break, the staff were extremely welcoming and helpful, the bar and restaurant provided excellent service.
Will definitely be back again.
