Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great place to stay by the M5 at Taunton
Stayed overnight with the family. Plenty of parking. Despite being only minutes from the motorway it is very quiet. There is a restaurant on the other side of the car park that is very good. Reception if smart and efficient. Got two interconnecting rooms. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was surprisingly good. Check-out was painless.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Poor Hotel with Dirty Rooms and Poor quality Food
The room was filthy.
The food quality was poor.
The table at breakfast was filthy and I had to ask more than once for it to be cleaned.
Generally, this is a poor hotel

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jiffyxx Great breakfast
Even though it was very busy, the staff worked really hard so there was always lots of choice available. The cooked breakfast was excellent, and the variety of bread options was delicious . Will definitely consider staying at holiday inn express in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great service
This was our 2nd stay at this hotel and each visit has been relaxing and very comfortable. Good breakfast, clean and tidy rooms.
The fact that the hotel is pet friendly is a huge bonus, our well behaved dog has been with us on both occasions and we have all been made very welcome.
The hotel is in an excellent position off the M5 and we will certainly be staying again.

There is no control by Hotel staff over noisy guests that smoke at the front door.
This has happened on various occations at this hotel, even though i mentioned this when i checked in. The night staff failed to keep disrespectful guests in place.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mummy MIgCHE Good enough stay
As my title says it was a good enough stay, The last time i stayed was slightly better. The ceiling was covered in cobwebs this time and the aircon was tempermental. (I didnt complain about either!) Staff were very friendly, polie, helpful and efficient. Excellent location for M5 junction 25 and good parking.

Stayed here for one night for business, and enjoyed it immensely. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. Upon check out, I forgot my iPhone and iPad charger in my room. Once I realised this, one phone call to their front desk and the issue was sorted out. They sent me everything by post, easily and quickly. Very appreciative for this, and will definitely be coming back!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jacobs6 Very clean and comfortable
We arrived very late with two sleepy children aged 1and 3. All we wanted was to get to our room and sleep. Reception was perfect easy and so quick. We were on ground floor, perfect. Opened room door and everything was set out ready for our arrival. Children in bed and fast asleep within 20 mins. Couldn't ask for more. In the morning went for breakfast, more available than we thought there would be. Lots of choice, babies ate very well. Check out was super fast and very pleasant. Couldn't praise it anymore really, well done.

Had a last minute trip to Taunton and booked the Holiday Inn Express for one night. The reception staff were really friendly and helpful; and the room was comfortable. I thought that there was plenty of choice at breakfast time. Thank you Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by YG150 Perfect Business Stop Over for the South West
I have stayed at this hotel several times and each time it has been up to the same high standards. Clean rooms, helpful friendly staff and a good location just off the M5 for business travel to any part of the S.West. A decent jog route nearby and a equally decent pub across the rood for a simple evening meal. Will be staying again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Malc23 Good Value Basic Accommodation
Good value basic accommodation on the motorway junction, obviously some distance from the town with a Harvester Pub and Restaurant on site and close to a large Sainsbury - including fuel, Retail Park with various outlets, Hollywood Bowl, Entertainment Centre - with cinema, McDonalds etc.
Bedrooms and bathrooms were clean/well maintained and of usual adequate HIE size, public area included small bar and lounge area plus a snack/drink vending machine and microwave all very much HIE standard. Large reception area with excellent service from a very welcoming staff the only downside was the small breakfast area serving the usual poor quality HIE breakfast - NOT FREE as the cost is included in the price of the room, I personally wish they would make a separate modest charge and serve a reasonable hot or continental breakfast.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rainedrop Room Not Serviced
I have stayed in MANY HIE's so was shocked to come back to my room after a hard day to find it had nt been serviced. I called reception and was then questioned as to if I was sure that I left my towels on the floor! the guy on the desk did not believe me! the bed was not made and my towels were on the bathroom floor. As it happens it took me a few minutes to sort out the room but the missing out on the ahhhhhh feeling when opening the door to a pristine room was a disappointment. As stated I stay in lots of IHG hotels and this is the first time it had happened to me.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hornet250 Nice but..
Stayed for one night alone early March 2014. Unless you get a "family room" with a folding sofa bed there is unfortunately nowhere really comfortable to sit in the room to e.g. watch TV (apart from lie on the bed of course)
Was awakened by horrendous din about 3 am from louts shouting and banging in the carpark.
The breakfast choices are good once you've figured out the self-service layout.
Ok for an overnight. Having to log on to the wireless connection each time you use the broadband - and enter the code as well as home address etc is un-necessarily complicated/ time consuming.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jag1313 Comfortable & freindly but not as clean as I had hoped.
Comfortable bed, friendly and helpful staff but room was not as clean as needed. One of bath towels had some stains on it and the sink had some shaved hairs in it - not a lot but still enough to notice and make me feel uncomfortable. Also free internet service doesn't work on phone devices which isn't helpful. Would be great to have access on laptops, ipads and phones please.

My wife and I stayed for one night to break a long journey. Despite arriving early the very helpful and welcoming reception staff checked us in to a very convenient room on the ground floor.
Our stay was comfortable and relaxing and we would love to stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by casandra holly Good value comfort and great breakfast with excellent bed mattress.
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Taunton for a Sunday night as we were visiting relatives. There is plenty of space in the room.There is a comfortable lounge area and very good parking with also the Harvester next door for a meal if you need it. The breakfast is buffet style so you can help yourself to hot and cold items.The range is impressive. The hotel is easily accessed from the Motorway and near to the big Sainsburys and other shops nearby. We also came at Christmas and had an enormous family room which could not be bettered in terms of size value for money and comfort too.The hotel then had a good festive atmosphere.The hotel has free newspapers and plenty of tea and coffee avaiable at breakfast aswell as tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms.If you need a clean and well resourced place to stay you can not go wrong with this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kennack10 Much much better stay this time!
This is our second review for this hotel... 1st visit was not good at all..so much so that we said we would not stay here again. But following a response from the manager we decided to give it another go, as we do usually enjoy our stays at 'Holiday Inn'. Last visit, we were put in a very uncomfortable room-bed's-awful, room was on the corridor where the designated smoking area is. It was very cold as the doors were always open, and unfortunately we could smell cigarettes! Whether you are a smoker or not, it was not pleasant. Anyway, we have to be fair and write about this experience, which was so much better. We requested a room that was not on the ground floor, which we were granted. But the room seemed so much better- well furnished, comfortable beds, and quieter... Breakfast service was efficient, and all item's were kept well stocked. So, based on this visit we would definitely stay here again. As we regularly travel on the M5, the location of this hotel is a pleasant break from the mundane journey down South.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mr Smith Not up to Express Standards
Very noisy next to motorway & room heating did not work making a very cold and uncomfortable stay un-helped by the fact that the room smelt of wet dog/dead rodent.
Did not get much sleep & ended up with a cold & headache.
Not up to usual Express standards
