Dunster Castle Hotel Information


With the convenience of Medieval Dunster's only private car park, 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. Guests can relax in comfortable lounges or even watch a film in our ballroom on a giant 86" screen 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 9 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. Dunster Castle Hotel has a cosy snug area where guests can relax on leather sofas in low beamed medieval comfort or dine in our award winning partner restaurant, Reeves, and If you pre-book with us at time of room reservation we can offer £40pp credit for just £30pp. Our own restaurant and bar is currently closed due to Covid considerations so all areas are safer for our residents. Breakfast is included and not affected. Off the ballroom is the conservatory which opens out onto our picturesque garden area with petanque court and 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 a guests' dog at £10 per night.

The hotel is run by owners, John & Lisa Richardson. 'We'd like to think that we provide a service second to none in the village in stylish and comfortable environment. We're not career hoteliers and have a slightly different approach to our guests to the norm. We always have time for a chat and some advice as to where you can make the best of your break and our staff are always eager to help. Our rooms and public areas reflect our personalities and we always aim to put a smile on our guests faces with our quirky yet stylish approach'
