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!

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marpa27 Excellent hotel
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!

The only problem I would have is that as my husband is disabled we could not park in a disabled bay due to a non blue badge holder parking in 3 out of the 5 spaces.
The staff and hotel are great and will use again

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MissK72 Great Hotel
Myself and family (4 adults/4children) stayed in the Holiday Inn, Taunton for a 3 day bank holiday break, The hotel was beautiful! It was a very clean and tidy hotel. (From pulling into the carpark, the garden, Reception/Bar and Restuarant Areas). I was impressed before i had even checked in. The reception staff were the most pleasant and friendly people i have dealt with before. They gave the kids a gift on check in, which i have never seen before. After check in, we went to our family rooms which was lovely and clean. We had everything we needed in the rooms we booked. Having children, its hard to keep them occupied, but not here! We had free access to the pool in the Spirit Club, right next door. The hotel also provided the kids with a early evening movie, with milk and cookies in the evening, (with a small play area for the children to play). The evening food was very nice too. I would seriously consider returning to this beautful hotel. Very Happy with my stay and impressed because i didn't expect this service with the prices paid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by theresa13 Good value
dinner bed and breakfast was good value for money
room clean and comfortable
pool very good -especially for children
food was good overall -dinner the first night was a little overcooked and the pork dish was not very pleasant- we were told many people complained about it and they -the staff- didn't want it on the menu!!!
I would suggest therefore it be removed.
I had a massage which was very good -masseur excellent

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by snuggy Overnight stay
Myself and my partner have stayed at this hotel for a few times now. On our latest visit we had booked into an Executive Suite. All mod cons but the bed was very uncomfortable, several times we woke with numbness down our arms and legs.
Another disappointment was that there was a rugby team in. And we were woken at 4.00 a.m. in the morning to loud chit chat in the room next door which went on for about 1.5hrs. We eventually got back to sleep at 5.30 a.m.
I reported it in the morning to reception and they were very apologetic and we received 10,000 IHG points.
This has not put me off visiting again. Just hope we getter a quieter room!!!

This hotel is a super place to stay if you have young children in tow. The staff were so helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were excellent. The leisure facilities and the games area in the lounge were much appreciated by us all. Will happily use this Holiday Inn again when we need to collect the grandchildren.

Ideally located just off M5. Used as a base for visiting friends and sightseeing Exmoor and Somerset.
Facilities were good although not necessarily cheap to eat there so chose to eat out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jemmi Comfortable stay
This hotel is close to the M5 J25, although you would not know it. The rooms are reasonably large, although my room was not refurbished to the latest Holiday Inn standards.
The bar had a wide selection of drinks, and bottled Ales from a local brewery which was good. The breakfast selection was good.
The health suite is reasonably well catered for with a useful length swimming pool.
I would return.

We have stayed on more than one occasion here. The hotel is immaculate the staff are more than friendly and certainly accommodating fantastic bar area loved the children's corner we sat and played games all night with the children and it was lovely to be able to feel like the children were welcomed with open arms. Cannot thank the staff for making all of us feel relaxed and welcome and would certainly recommend this hotel to anybody.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pauline4264 Disappointed as we have used holiday Inn for ver 25 years
This is the first time we have stayed at this hotel and t did not touch other holiday Inn's we have stayed at. On check in the man was not very friendly and did not offer us a dinner table as it has the guess's in front of us who he went over board with as they stayed there regularly. We booked a double room and was asked when we booked what we wanted, was phoned by the hotel to ask a couple of days before but we given a twin and as my husband and I had booked a nice weekend away we did not want to sleep in twins. The beds and pillows were very uncomfortable and every time you slightly moved on the bed the headboard made noises which woke you up. Breakfast was not as good as other places and lacked some of the choice the same grade hotels have, however on the Saturday you were offered co taint tea/coffee but on the Sunday struggled to even get one cup and never was asked would we like another, it's fair to say we would not return. We also not offered any of the benefits that go with our reward card.

We have stopped at this Holiday Inn a number of times in the past. It remains one of our favourite places when travelling to the south west.
On this visit the staff excelled themselves with helpfulness. Check-in was a very smooth operation and the lady on duty was very friendly, welcoming and gave lots of information to help our stay. A big thank you.
