Located in the very heart of Somerset’s county town of Taunton, The Castle offers the perfect base from which to explore the magnificent sea and landscapes that surround.

Filled with the romanticism of the past, this historic hotel has been run by the Chapman family for the past 60 years and offers all that you would expect from an independent four star hotel - comfortable accommodation, excellent restaurants and bars, private meeting and dining rooms, a tranquil and picturesque garden and free WiFi! But most importantly the staff are friendly, knowledgeable and courteous, ensuring your stay is one you’ll remember fondly.


Renowned for its food, the Castle Hotel boasts two bars and restaurants. The Art Deco Bow Bar & Grill using the very freshest of local ingredients and BRAZZ, the Castle’s brasserie, offering a fun place to eat and drink. You’ll find local beers and ciders, homemade pies, fishcakes, and award winning bangers to name a few.


The Castle Hotel offers 44 sympathetically decorated bedrooms, all of which are ensuite. Warmth and comfort are paramount. We want you to throw your shoes off and put your feet up!
