Negative Reviews

Restaurant meals not quite up to scratch.

The restaurants at this hotel claim to serve high quality meals, but you may find yourself disagreeing with this view. You might be of the opinion that the food is not great value for money at all.

Rooms are not fitted with a safe.

If you are taking valuables with you during your stay at this hotel you’ll be disappointed to know that no rooms feature a safe. To avoid any possible upsets you will have to carry your prized possessions around with you.

For some reason The Castle at Taunton think it is appropriate to charge you to park your vehicle in the on-site car park. If you plan to drive here make sure you ask what the hotel is charging for a parking space when you book.
