Top 10 Dog Friendly Hotels by Dinah Hatch

"Run by the Chapman family for 65 years, the Castle is a Taunton institution. It has won a host of awards for its great food and welcoming hospitality – and that extends to dogs, of course (£15 extra). Don’t miss the much talked about brasserie BRAZZ with its passion for provenance and family friendliness. There’s also fine dining in the Castle Bow, with local produce served up by head chef Liam Finnegan (past chefs include Gary Rhodes and Phil Vickery.)"

Ten West Country Hotels of Character by Adrian Mourby

"The Castle Hotel is 300 years old but it was originally part of the inner ward of Taunton Castle, a building that dates back to the twelfth century. That castle has seen a lot of history, including civil wars in the twelfth and seventeeth centuries. Today however under its owners, the Chapman family, it is best-known for its brasserie, Brazz which features great food, a starlit dome and a cobalt blue fish tank."
