Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Farlington Very Good
Stayed here a couple of times before and the hotel is of a high standard. On this occasion my only minor niggle is that one of the two rooms booked was not executive standard.
Otherwise the hotel is of a very good standard with some additional details which I noticed , such as the fruit in reception were an excellent gesture
And like your other reviews, the lady on check in was delightful.
Happy New year to you all

We regularly stay at this hotel and it has never disappointed us, staff are always helpful and friendly ( especially Sophie). If I had to look for one gripe it would have to be the charge for Internet access, not good in such a high profile group!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hutch Family Christmas Day at the Holiday Inn
My family and I had a wonderful stay at the Holiday Inn @ Taunton Deane, we stayed Christmas Eve and night, we woke Christmas morning to selection boxes for each of the 3 children and the adults were given terry`s chocolate orange each. On return to the hotel late afternoon our children were treated to freshly baked cookies with milk, a staff member (Sophie) then proceeded to entertain our and other children with various games which they thoroughly enjoyed, what a lovely touch, of course this was in addition to all of the other excellent services that we have come to expect from the holiday inn`s. On another note a local elderly couple had their house burnt down (23/12) and were left with nothing other than the clothes they were in, the holiday inn gave them complimentary room/meals and endeavoured to make their Christmas as comfortable as possible, keep up the good work : )

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NunoftheAbove Hope chef doesn't have an off day
Although I stay here regularly, I don't always eat dinner on site, however for this two night stay I included a dinner booking. Had I not pre-booked it I would not have eaten here on night two as the first night was a bit of a disaster. The starter was cold in the middle, the main course was only fair and the pudding was overcooked and inedible. The second night was an improvement so I just hope that this was a one-off.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Andrew68 Nice hotel but.......
Every time I stay at Taunton, I don't get my rewards points and continually have to chase. 3 times I have stayed since October, 3 times I have had to chase via rewards points for a curt response. Stayed at the Express in Cardiff, points added within a day. Seems to a problem at Taunton and having to chase all of the time is annoying me. When you then further analyse (which I wouldn't do if wasn't having to email rewards points and moan), actually, from a food and beverage perspective - it's not great value...£11.35 for a sandwich and a few skinny fries in the bar.....and beer prices...Think I might be looking elsewhere next time down. The internet situation re. having to pay for it...is a farce in 2013.
Staff are genuinely friendly though and it's clean.

Rooms here are very basic, bed pillows need replacing as they are not up to standard.
On the other hand, the staff made-up for any negatives with their happy go lucky professional attitude toward their guest's.

No complaints............do not change a thing.............one thought..how about Priority Club members being offered reduced room rates., perhaps along the lines of the Friends & Family scheme for employees., food vouchers or room upgrades......????????

Really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Taunton Holiday Inn. The room was very clean, tidy and well equipped. Even though we didn't use the pool or gym , it was nice to know they were there to use if we wanted. Food was average, although we only ordered room service one evening, so can't comment on breakfast.
All in all a nice hotel, friendly staff and some nice touches, like a coffee, fruit & biscuits by the entrance in the morning to take away if we wished. Would stay again and highly recommend!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Workingtohard Relaxing stay
This Hotel is ideal for those who want to relax and be waited on but be close to the motorway so you are able to explore the West Country.
Staff were very friendly and nothing to much trouble.
Good gym plenty of free weights and machines along with a good size swimming pool.
Restaurant food is expensive but right next door is a Harvester for those who are happy with less choice on the menu.

We stayed for two nights on a half board package. The rooms and bathrooms were a little on the small side, but, overall, we were very pleased with the experience. The hotel was very clean, the staff were all friendly and efficient and the food was to a high standard. The location was convenient to the M5 and parking was easy. We did not use the health suite.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Maybury46 Good nights sleep
Yes, despite very close proximity of M5 had a good night sleep, though found pillows quite uncomfortable, the soft was very soft, ie seemed like a pillowcase with very little else, and firm was very firm, however this is nit picking, overall excellent value for money, disappointed no free wifi in this day and age, pool was a welcome escape, bar could do with some decent real ale on tap and not bottled! Will visit again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Then Friendly and helpful staff
We were in Taunton for 2 nights for the West Somerset Railway Rover travel on the Somerset train.
We were delighted to learn the Carnival was on that weekend on19/10. Being strangers, the helpful staff/s mapped out directions for us to attend. Enjoyed the carnival very much. Freshly cooked porridge is just what i always wished for in an hotel, instead of dry porridge on a hotplate, and it's excellent. A bit too much for me and couldn't finish it. Eggs cooked to perfection and not rubbery. Compliments to the chef/cook.
We will return again to any Holiday Inn Hotel. Having a car park was the deciding factor.
Thank you for a comfortable stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by brekkiefan Amazingly friendly staff and fab for relaxing :)
My husband and I stayed for a long weekend and didn't want to check out! Literally every single member of staff was so friendly and helpful throughout our stay, that I even asked to see the manager at the check out desk to thank them and pass on our thanks to everyone there. From the reception staff, gym staff, restaurant staff and the cleaners, we were constantly greeted with smiles and "good morning". We enjoyed the gym, pool, sauna and jacuzzi every day - twice! But our absolute favourite thing was the spectacular buffet breakfast! We have never eaten such a good breakfast anywhere else we have stayed:cereals; juices; fruits; pastries; deli; cooked food and even a mini pancake maker. It was our first experience at a Holiday Inn, but we'll definitely visit one again :)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Speedy2 Super room; wonderful leisure centre
The staff were very friendly and welcomining and helpful. The room, which was an executive one, was lovely, comfy bed, large t.v. iron and ironing board, trouser press, fridge and room safe. The bathroom was extremely clean and was supplied with toiletries. The Service in the restaurant on the Saturday evening was very poor. Whilst the staff were pleasant, they appeared to have insufficient training. We waited 15 minutes for drinks after arriving at our table. We had to requested tap water 3 times. Our meal seemed to take a long time to arrive, which caused us problems as we had time constraints. We received no apology, and was told twice, with gaps inbetween, that it was "being plated up." We felt that if there was a problem in the kitchen, we should have been told, because if you are informed of a problem, that makes it easier to understand. Also for breakfast we saw staff setting tables and holding beakers with their fingers inside the beakers before placing them on the table. As I say the staff were friendly, but I think more training needs to be undertaken.
The air con made it draughty and our table was staight in line for when the outer doors to the hotel opened which was unfortunate as it was a cold night.

We stayed here last week (22/9) for the first time and were very impressed with this hotel and would like to go back there again. Our standard room was very spacious and comfortable. The swimming pool was a good size and the gym well equipped. The breakfast was excellent with a good choice and the cooked breakfast was really tasty. My wife was advised of other food and had a mushroom omelette which was of good size, plenty of mushrooms and cooked perfectly. In all departments, the staff were so friendly, helpful and efficient. Well impressed!
