Guests are welcome to use our repurposed comfortable dining and restaurant areas to relax and unwind comfortable in the knowledge that it open to nobody other than residents and staff.  We also have an elegant ballroom where you may wish to play on our baby grand piano (only if you can play, please) or watch TV or a movie on the giant 86″ screen.  Alternatively, you may wish to sit in our beautiful garden whilst taking in the stunning Dunster views, again, exclusive to guests.

Discover Dunster Castle Hotel

At the gateway to Exmoor park lies the medieval village of Dunster, and at the very heart of Dunster lies the Dunster Castle Hotel. Set at the foot of the castle just 20 metres from the castle entrance itself, guests couldn’t be closer to the beauty and attractions that Dunster has to offer. The location, however is just the start of your Dunster Castle Hotel experience. We want is to make the guest feel they’ve made the right decision as soon as they enter the property. The grade 2 listed building, dating from the 1700’s, is a visual treat that announces to visitors that preserving tradition is paramount to the hotel. However, upon entering the hotel, guests will see and feel that tradition has been perfectly matched with modern comforts and styling.

The Castle Coffee House is a short walking distance from Dunster Castle. We had a lovely cream tea here.The menu was adapted to suit our requirements. The setting is in a lovely garden area which is under cover.Therefore it is still pleasant if the weather is not good. Staff are very helpful and obliging.

Very nice place. Staff attentive. Breakfast lovely would recommend this place. Menu for rest of day good, would have stayed longer but had to return home , long drive to Yorkshire.Dunster very quaint and steeped in history. We will definitely return and visit more. Did not get to the castle but will next time.
We have just returned from Dunster Castle Hotel and have to say what a beautiful hotel this is. We stayed in the Conyger room which was the Bridal suite which was a lovely big room with a huge Super King Size bed which was sooooo comfortable. We would like to say a special thank you to Paul & Haley
