The Dunster rooms have king size beds, and are more spacious, and there are also four-poster rooms. Most rooms have either a view over the village or the surrounding countryside. Pets are most welcome at the hotel in the dog-friendly rooms.

The restaurant offers a wide variety of meals using local produce whenever possible, served by Gables Restaurantfriendly staff. There is a good wine list and locally brewed beers and ciders available to accompany your meal.
