Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Geoff47 Enjoyable stay
Had a very enjoyable stay at Holiday Inn Express Taunton. The staff were very helpful and the bedroom and facilities were excellent. The only slight disappointment was the choice of dishes for the cooked breakfast which was restricted to scrambled eggs, sausage and baked beans. It would have been nice to have had a larger selection to include bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms etc. Nevertheless I would strongly recommend the hotel and would definitely stay there again in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BJAYB Clean comfortable room
Good location for my purposes - one day visit to visit relatives. Handy for town and also for touring if you wanted this. Quiet location with excellent free car parking. Room was a good size ,clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was good and other meals taken at the adjoining Harvester which was good value. I would use this hotel again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by family27 Would stay again
The car park was right outside and plenty of space. Booking in was easy and the receptionist explained everything to us - we had to log the car registration for overnight parking. The beds were made up ready for us and although there was not much space it was clean and reasonable. There was plenty of coffee and tea available although it was a bit odd that the kettle and tray was nowhere near a socket. There was a socket by the desk which I wanted for my laptop and the other sockets we eventually found were behind the bed settee. The shower was quite powerful and a good size. The Harvester next door was ideal for our evening meal and they even gave us a pager to call us when our table was ready and it worked even when we had gone back to our room. We had been warned that the motel was full and to bear with them at breakfast. The buffet area was quite small but it was well stocked and we had no problems getting somewhere to sit. There was cereal, muffins, croissants, toast (brown and white bread), orange juice, coffees, tea, sausage, scrambled eggs and beans. as mentioned in previous reviews there was no bacon but that was a minor thing. I would choose HI express in the future for overnight stay but for longer stays would probably prefer to get separate rooms as it was cramped with 2 adults and 2 teenagers.

Stopped off for a night on the way to the West Country! Great welcome from the 2 girls on reception! Platinum member 'perk' was a drink and snack. Quiet room. Good breakfast. What more can one expect at Holiday Inn Express??? Already booked for next journey south!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SandraV59 A good nights rest with great staff
We stayed here for one night in August 2013. The check in and check out staff were very welcoming and professional.
We had room 211 and had no problems with noise, considering we were in a very busy area.
The family room we had was a little cramped but it was only for one night.
The beds were comfortable as were the pillow choices.
All in all a well recommended stop over when traveling to the south west area.

Our overnight stay on route to Cornwall was a pleasure , the hotel was excellent - staff very helpful and the breakfast just the 'ticket'
We have already recommended the hotel to a number of friends

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Neilh Computer says no
After fours hours on the road with two tired children in the car, the last thing you need at 11pm when you're ten minutes away from your hotel is a phone call from the manager to say there are no rooms available! The "computer" had overbooked, meaning the room we had booked was already taken. Translation: someone arrived on spec and as we were a late arrival, they sold the room again to make a few extra quid (i checked prior to booking and was told it was a 24-hour check-in, so 11pm should not be a problem). The solution? Another hotel 5 miles away. No way. I dug my heels in and insisted on a room. SOMEONE, would have had to do without their room that night - possibly another family I saw arrive after us. The manager's response? It was the "computer's" fault and not his. Absolutely appalling.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tex74 Lovely location; Busy at weekends
We stay here regularly, it's a great location for touring around. Usual Holiday Inn Express standards of comfort and cleanliness (good). The hotel bar is adequate and has a basic menu for evening meals - pizza, noodles, etc. Pub next door (Harvester) is very popular with families with children, especially weekends in summer. Be aware of this and sometimes it's best to get sandwiches, etc, from nearby Sainsbury's, or use the Hotel bar, if you'd rather avoid feral kids in a pub with OK food and fairly high prices. Taunton is good for shopping.

This was the first time that we had used the Holiday inn Express for an overnight or short stay stop. I have to say we were very happy with what we got and will used the Express again. We thought that the room standard was very good and better than another brand hotel. Thank you very much.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tim147 Delightful bedroom, good service but disappointing breakfast
The room and facilities in the hotel were modern and well maintained. We had a very comfortable stay and enjoyed our break. The staff were very helpful and could not be faulted.The only disappointment was the breakfast where a lot of debris was left on the tables as we went into the dining area and the cooked breakfast options were disappointing and not very tasty. I would be happy to wait for someone to cook my breakfast from fresh. The approach adopted by the Old English Inns to breakfast could be a possible solution. They have a wide range of breakfast options and they are all cooked fresh, e.g. eggs benedict, full cooked breakfast etc. I would happily a few pounds extra for an improved breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bob111 One night stopover
Exceeded expectations. My partner and I just wanted a functional, easy to find room for the night at a reasonable price. This ticked all the boxs and more. Nice well designed room - all very clean - better than expected breakfast. I shall certainly be putting Express at Holiday Inns on the top of my list for similar trips in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ShinyTig3r Not all that basic
Lots of reviews say very minimalist - well I call flat screen tv, coffee and tea facilities, ensuite shower and very comfortable beds more than the minimum requirement! Breakfast is a bit underwhelming if you con't like sausages but scrambled egg on toast was very nice.
Walls a bit on the thin side; the room next door had a bit of a party and I felt as though I was in the same room at one point! I like the door lock though, as I was on my own I felt quite safe.
Very reasonably priced too. Very clean.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sinbadnpg A shade dissappointed.
Godd location for this hotel. A shade dissappointed on two three fronts compared to their counterparts at the holiday Inn which is only yards away.
Firstly, dissappointed in how elite customers are treated. There seems to be little or no recognition of this fact. Most other IHG hotels offer complimentary drinks some even a bottle of water, chocolates etc.Especially at the Holiday a few yards away.
Here there is nothing
secondly, the pricing of the hotel is not too disimilar to the holiday Inn where the rooms are better there is food availability in house and a much larger selection of choice at breakfast time. At the same price which would you go for?
Thirdly, the staff at the Holiday Inn are much more cheerful who make the effort to want to help you. this isn't meant as a maliceful comment. its just that they are more appraochable etc an altogether different culture. Lessons to be learnt i think.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 17Bobby17 Clean room and comfortable bed
Good hotel to stay at. The breakfast was basic though (no bacon or choice of how you want your egg done). The area was a bit boring being situated in the middle of a business park. I stayed here during the Taunton cricket festival, so a good comfortable room was all I needed and got it.

value for money hotel; bedding too small for bed so spent time trying to re-fit sheets and mattress cover! Disappointed with breakfast service- had to wait ages for eggs, sausages and beans to be replenished - family breakfast did not happen - 10 minutes waiting for food to be replenished. Staff friendly and helpful.

The staff were always on hand to make everything as friendly and as welcoming as possible. the appearence of the hotel is lovely, and situated just minutes form the M5. Comfy beds, great bar and lounge area, but again the thing that makes this hotel special is the staff.
