Four of us enjoyed an excellent lunch, in the dining room, on a lovely table , by a window, overlooking the main street. The service by a very friendly and helpful waitress, namely Mandy, was most gratefully received. The food was to a very high standard and beautifully hot. We have made another lunch time booking for 14th May, when...

We were planning on staying in Winsford but it was too quiet for us so we were on the way to Minehead when we drove through Dunster. It was such a beautiful village we decided to stay and they had a room available at the Lutterell Arms. What a find! This is a beautiful, quintessentially English hotel. The staff were...

Visited while staying in Dunster for an evening meal. We were greeted when we arrived by a very pleasant young man who showed us to our table. The menu was a special one, two courses for £15 or three for £20. The choice of courses was very good and the food beautifully cooked and well presented. It was delicious. The...

I came here with my husband for our one year wedding anniversary. It was a very last minute booking so we weren't sure what to expect. ...Absolutely everything was perfect! The lovely sun trap of a garden with beautiful views of rooftops leading to the castle, the quirky hidden seating areas, the log fire in the lounge, the bar oozing...

We really enjoyed our stay, if you are taking a dog it could not be better, lovely setting. We ate both breakfast and evening meal, food in the evening was very good in the bar. However our breakfast on Saturday morning was not up their usual standard, the food was not hot enough and the sausages where undercooked. We have...

We arrived on spec for an evening meal and were warmly welcomed by efficient, friendly staff despite them having a large number of people in for a special wine evening. I had seafood risotto which was very good & my husband had pie of the day which he said was excellent. Staff offered extra gravy without being asked. Lovely atmospheric...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Luttrell Arms is a 3 star, 28 room hotel. Set in the medieval village of Dunster with its many interesting buildings, under the shadow of the Castle and within the Exmoor National Park. The privately owned 14th century Luttrell Arms is surrounded by beautiful countryside making it the ideal destination for that weekend break or midweek getaway. Stroll around the village, walk the moor, or just sit by a log fire in a building where hospitality has been a way of life for hundreds of years. Heritage "If you could bottle the air in the bar at the Luttrell Arms and sell it you'd clean up" so wrote a local journalist. The smell of logs burning on the fire, a hint of hops from the pints of ale, add to this the smell of something aromatic being cooked in the kitchen, and the most essential element - the smell of history, it oozes out of the walls which have stood for 800 years. There are many outstanding architectural features, the medieval hall with its hammer beam roof (room 17) and twelve light window. History seeps out of the blackened frames, which had their glass rattled loose as Cromwell’s gunners laid siege to Dunster Castle from a defended strong point at the end of the garden. Cromwell’s Commander, Col. Robert Blake walked the corridors of the hotel, it was then called the Ship Inn and was used as his headquarters throughout the siege of the castle. Also of note is some very fine plasterwork on the ceiling of the lounge downstairs, and the plaster over mantle in room 12, showing Actaeon being devoured by hounds. The Arms of Luttrell that we use today carry us back to a Gentleman of 1261, the crest takes us only back to 1621, but the supporters are directly derived from one of the Barons who coerced King John into sealing Magna Carta. A more modern visitor is Hercule Poirot. In "The Cornish Mystery" he confronts the murderer in one of the hotel’s bedrooms. ... more   less
