Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve b77 Great service but sofa bed for my 13 year daughter was terrible.
This was a weekend for my daughters and wife's birthday could not fault the service and the hotel but my daughter was sleeping on one of your sofa beds and the mattress was so thin that you could feel all the springs which was very uncomfortable and unacceptable so she didn't sleep very well the first night we told reception in the morning and came up with putting another quilt on top of the mattress which was better but not great think this needs looking into as I think this is really poor for the money I spent.

I was really tired when I arrived, but soon relaxed, enjoyed the surroundings and had a refreshing night's sleep. Everything I could have wished for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Leander Help under pressure
We made a mistake in our emergency on-line booking and arrived exactly a month early during Glastonbury, County Cricket match, a major cycling event and plenty of other visitors. Reception made a strong effort to rebuild our stay with the help of Holiday Inn Express within walking distance. Incidentally, the satnav knew which was which! They got the blood pressure down from dangerous levels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IANC55 One of the better Holiday Inns
Have used this Hotel twice this year and it is one of the better Holiday Inns. Staff are attentive and competent and service is generally very good. Breakfast excellent. Rooms comfortable and clean and all in all would recommend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rachers Comfortable stay but breakfasts disappointing
Staff first class, a very comfortable stay but the breakfasts were disappointing (dry, warm, tasteless). A shame because ALL other Holiday Inns I have stayed at the breakfasts have been lovely.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnP63 Good hotel in a good location
Hotel is very conveniently located just off the M5. Easy access to North and South. Good size comfortable room. Restaurant is fine, my only comment was the number of wines on the short list that were not available. I would use the hotel again.

We stayed for one night - two adults, two kids and had a great time. The staff were attentive and couldn't have been more helpful at breakfast time - the kids had a ball. The pool was a real bonus. All in all no complaints for the money we paid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by archrads Great room & all comfortable
There was 7 ladies staying at the Holiday Inn Taunton. We had a lovely stay & couldn't believe the value for money that we had. Service, staff & accommodation were absolutely brilliant. Great as there is a swimming pool, sauna & jacuzzi to use too. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kath76 Great pool and comfortable room.
We stayed in a family room, there was enough space to put everything and it was clean and comfortable. We made full use of the swimming pool which was definitely the main reason we chose this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was lovely. Overall, we enjoyed our stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jean M Easy access and restful stay
The Holiday Inn Hotel M5 Taunton provides high quality and easy accessible accommodation for those not wanting to venture far from the motorway.
Rooms are exceptionally quiet and the leisure facilities, including pool, make the journey far more enjoyable and relaxing.
Staff were very efficient and genuinely friendly and I would definitely use this hotel again if travelling in this direction.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lyon-man hottest pool + sauna i have ever experienced! :)
As it was the 6th visit in a couple of months, I did feel well known to many of the staff and about as 'at home' as one can in such circumstances.
The usual rooms were not available so we had to have pricier 'executive' rooms which appeared to mean, bath robes were supplied for the stay, along with free bottled water and Mars bar - and the choice of drinks from a pay-mini-bar.
The gym/pool/sauna was the highlight again for spending time before the reason for the trip - a series of training days.
The food was good - although the new menu presented some challenges when we had got used to the other and knew what we wanted.
I found it slightly bemusing that a hotel offer to provide lots of details such as razor etc. if you have forgotten one - and then not be able to supply it when requested.
Breakfast - possibly the biggest I have encountered - was so busy we were asked to wait for a table to be cleared and then that took a little while longer than one would hope. I did feel that 2 -weeks notice would have been long enough to ensure they had defrosted some gluten-free rolls - but apparently not!
I really don't feel i'm that fussy, but when one is asked for feedback and one has paid so high a rate for a room, I will mention certain things. My mate's pint was not charged for as an apology; I then wished I had had a glass of the extortionately priced wine!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Toolie First visit.
Just a brief stay here, efficient reception. Good room, we stay in a lot
of Holiday Inns and wish that the dinner menu was different in each place. Otherwise food and service good.
Busy hotel, lots of families but really liked the atmosphere.

The Hotel was busy, so you've booked a double but we're busy so you've got a twin, not much we can do. Breakfast voucher here it's £10.95 at Birmingham Airport its £10.00 and in Bassingstoke it's £9.50 where is the consystancy. Pool was nice though

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PYGB Excellent bed and v. good service
Comments: only one chair for dining table and no bedside table due to location of radiator - extractor fan in bathroom did not work - room service v. good as was the food - have stayed before and would finitely book again.
Cannot understand how points system works and do I need to fill in form which I took with me?

Stayed here before and, just as last time, had a very pleasant stay. Beds comfortable and the rooms are nice and quiet. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and cooked well. Made full use of the swimming pool which is a good size and not crowded. Staff and manager all very helpful and friendly. Really would recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jabuka Top class!
Have stayed at various Holiday Inn's and whilst we have always been pleased ,this one was certainly the best we have stayed in. The staff were so helpful , courteous and attentive even at busy times. Also made use of the excellent gym and swimming pool facilities. Changing rooms very clean. Would recommend a stay here.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jamiejamie Lacking some basic style and comfort
A little tired and sad looking Hol Inn. Needs some attention to rooms and probably Hol Inn Express is more modern. Not the best Hol Inn I've ever stayed in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Louise66 Superb value for money.
We booked two rooms online and the hotel called us the night before to see how we wanted the rooms made up which I thought was excellent. They also accommodated us with adjacent rooms. Friendly staff ,great service, we didn't eat as it was a quick stopover but did have a free. coffee and an apple.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whistleblower A great Holiday Inn
Stayed before over a decade ago & pleased to return. Staff are excellent & really helpful (thank you for the Easter Egg!). Room was excellent and very clean. Breakfast was usual Holiday Inn fayre & all-in-all good. Great location right next to J25 of the M5... so perfect if going to or from Cornwall & Devon - some road noise but all OK. I will be back!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wendy63 Small issues that add up
We were greeted beautifully and looked forward to a good night's sleep after a long day, unfortunately my son's bed was literally the sofa with sheets and a quilt added. It was rock hard and very uncomfortable. The shower was barely a trickle, even with the 'power button' pushed. There was soap from the previous guests left in the shower. We were offered a newspaper and had assumed it was complementary, and were shocked when we were asked to pay when we left. We didn't eat there as the prices were very high, and were extremely disappointed at the cost of wifi, which was complimentary everywhere else we stayed. It was a ridiculous price on top of the room rate. We wouldn't recommend this hotel when there are so many other choices.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mutt14 very disappointing
the hotel and room were tired and out of date - compared to a premier inn I stayed in the previous night it was less modern, less comfortable and worse value by a mile.
the check out person was most put out that I was checking out a bit late and was rude
wont be back
