What a great Hotel, crisp and clean not at all tired and in need of freshening up. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble.
I felt more like a friend than a guest which is nice when your away from home. The facilities offered were excellent, a good selection of self service drinks and snacks available in the reception area and an ice machine which was a real blessing in the recent heat wave, the room was fresh and vibrant and all the common areas were the same. A big thank you to all the staff who made this a very pleasant stay.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I have stayed here many times with great experience but this time there was an intermittent knocking noise all night. I reported this to reception as it kept me awake all night, so far no response...
Also when I checked in I was given a different guy's room!

Second attempt at review.........
Confident of a clean, comfortable stay. Staff willing to help, never to busy to attend you.
Good, fresh breakfast, a few more vegetarian options would be nice!
Cleanliness is throughout the hotel.
As my visit was the culmination of a sad family situation, I had no interest in touring around the area so was happy to sit and relax in the general area.

We travelled to Taunton to attend a funeral, so the venue was not the first thing on our minds. Room was comfortable, very stylish and breakfast was very good. As the breakfast room was busy we were offered a conference room. We appreciated that as we had time and space to talk uninterrupted. Friendly helpful staff.
We weren't there to relax so cannot comment on facilities as we didn't experience them. Don't really know the difference between Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express, but we would recommend the Express as value for money. Well done.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by swimdave bar lounge area
I don't like piped music there is no need for it, there is a nice seated area that would be nice to relax and chat with friends, background music gets in the way.
As a frequent guest at HI express brand hotels, I would like to see some variety in the breakfast selection perhaps even some items that would be found in the USA for breakfast, when you stay up to 5 days the breakfast choice is too repetitive

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 One night stop over
Only booked for one night , received a text and email confirmation with all details. Arrived early just to check in and drop bags off , reception desk were very accommodating and were able to provide my room . Room cleanliness was excellent but had to ask for the double pull out bed to be made up. This was done within minutes. Had a great nights sleep and room temp was perfect. Breakfast was minimal but the choice was fine. Only criticism was the scrambled egg (yuk ). Overall a very pleasant stay , all the staff were professional and very helpful . Thanks for a great service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kimhb Comfotable bed, efficient and friendly staff
I stay at this hotel quite regularly because of its location, the staff, secure and clean but basic accommodation.
However, on my most recent visit the price was almost double because Rod Stewart was at the Cricket ground for a fund raiser, which meant rooms were almost double the usual charge, which is why I said value for money was very poor on that particular night

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by scubachick312 Pre booking service
I was travelling with my elderly mother (95) for a family wedding. I explained this when I booked asking if we might be able to have an early book in. I was told that it depended on how busy the hotel was but it might be possible. Phone back the day before to see what could be done. I phoned on the night before, again explaining why the early book in would be helpful. I was told that the hotel was busy and nothing could be guaranteed but if I wanted to book a room for the Friday night (30th) that would guarantee me a room for when we arrived (we were travelling from Hull). I didn't want to pay full price for a room that I would only use of an hour so I declined.
When I arrived the next day, my request had been passed to reception and they were able to book us in early. For which I was very grateful as my mother was tired and needed a quick sleep before going to the wedding. I saw the list of occupied rooms and it didn't look at busy. It would have been helpful if the person on the Friday night had been more positive when I was asking about booking in.
I also asked for a room that had easy access. While the room was wheelchair accessible it wasn't close to the lift which is what I had asked for. My mother is still able to walk and I did make this clear when booking the room. I wanted a room that would be close to the lift. My mother managed but it could have been easier for her.
One last point on the breakfast. There was only sausages, scrambled eggs and beans for a hot breakfast. Bacon would have been nice. Also one of the toasters was very slow and bread had to be put through twice for it to toast.

Have stayed at this hotel many times and have never had a problem.
Nicely situated away from the main road so quiet.
Would always use this hotel when in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Snorbens Man A good place to stay
Very convenient for the motorway with a pub/restaurant on the other side of the car park so an excellent overnight stop
The quality of the furniture (my bedroom chair had a broken arm) and the quality of the bathroom toiletries are at the bottom end of the market so don't rely on them and take your own
The staff were great and the breakfast was very good but if you are a light sleeper, external noise from the motorway and car park and internal noise from the other guests this might not be the hotel for you. I could hear other guests on the floor above and from the corridor outside

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 sleepless night
on entering the room I was pleasantly surprised,id asked for a quiet room and it seemed to be just that we weren't overlooking the carpark and we coulnt hear the motorway so happy at that stage.Went out for the evening and returned late at night,but when we went to bed there was a big dip in the middle so very uncomfortable and then the noise some sort of machine in the corridor meant we didn't sleep all night I did try to ring reception at 3.00am but no reply (I thought it was 24 hours) I was wreaked in the morning

We always choose this hotel for our stop-off for holidays. We were in no doubt where to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. The staff, as always, were friendly and VERY helpful on our arrival. We used Taunton as a base for a journey into Wales, which was wonderful. On checking out, once again the staff were very helpful. We will definitely be booking another stay. We would like to say Thank You for all their help and care, and well done to the staff who work so quickly and efficiently within the breakfast area, tables were cleared and cleaned so no one had too long to wait. Looking forward to our next visit. xx

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by W&W2014 Friendly and comfortable stay
Reception staff were friendly and informative, giving us advice and sharing their knowledge about the surrounding area.
The room was comfortable and even though we were next to the stairwell we were not disturbed too much.
We were even given a locked room to store our cycles in overnight.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mr Average Always friendly, rooms clean but don't bother with breakfast!
iI am a regular here; the staff are always helpful, friendly and polite, and the rooms are very clean.
Evening meals are eaten away from the hotel, in the Harvester next door. Food here is of a reasonable standard, although perhaps a little more attention should be paid to washing up the dishes provided for the salad. Waiting staff are courteous., even though they are clearly overstretched.
Eat a hearty meal in the evening because the hotel breakfast is to be avoided- its self service of cheap sausages, cheap baked beans and microwave scrambled egg is not what you'd expect from this type of hotel and falls a long way short of the nearby competitors including Premier Inn and local independents.
