Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kiwi10 Great Value
Despite close to the M5 the room was very quiet and exceptionally clean. Staff all very attentive, polite and responsive. Breakfast was a feast and the staff were constantly monitoring and refreshing the options when stock looked low.
At the rate we booked this hotel is an absolute winner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TQ57 Well done!
We were a late check in at 11.15pm - travelling, traffic, etc. Staff helpful and check in very quick. Glass of wine to toast start of a long weekend was great value and way above the average house wine. Bedroom way surpassed our expectations - space, comfort, clean and excellent decor. Breakfast the next morning was a good choice - possibly limited for those wanting a full fry up - but again everything tasted great and was well presented. It is on our list of definitely will stop at again. Ideal for those en route to Devon/Cornwall . The only downside is that we would probably only stay there for one night at a time as we would be heading further down south on holiday. Keep up the good work......your competitors should take note!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LINDA16 lovely room, shame about breakfast
We really liked our bedroom - smart, modern, stylish - and the beds were very comfortable. The only downside to our stay was breakfast - scrambled eggs looked inedible, no orange juice etc. Is the breakfast area/service large enough for the hotel? Liked the complementary newspaper and the ice machine in the lobby.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Christine1954 Excellent Experience
We have used this establishment on 3 or 4 different occasions now and each time have found it to be excellent. Staff are usually busy but always manage to excel in effort and politeness. Effieciency is key. Excellent value, a league above other well know establishments of similar price. I don't usually give feedback but felt the team at Taunton deserve a pat on the back for getting it exactly right.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rachael1962 comfortable & quiet room
We stayed at Holiday Inn Express to break up a long journey down to Cornwall. We were travelling with our dog who was also made to feel very welcome. I was a little unsure about staying so close to the motorway in case there was a lot of motorway noise, however I could not have been more wrong. The hotel was very quiet & we had a lovely nights sleep.
Breakfast time soon arrived & the selection on offer was great.
Would definatley recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mosey06 nice place for a break in our journey
We also stayed one night for a break in our journey to Cornwall. Good location,close to M5 but not noisy, everywhere was clean and tidy. The staff were professional but very friendly. Only expecting a small continental breakfast, we were pleasantly surprised at the breakfast on offer, a good mix of hot and cold choices. A Harvester restaurant next door provided us with somewhere to eat and relax which was a bonus.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sundowner121 Good Night Sleep
On arrival the friendly staff greeted me with politness and a friendly smile. Booked in and On arrival at my room, which was clean and tidy. The One thing I noticed and appreciated was how quit it was, being situated on the edge of a small office block complex, and even though the M5 was very near , there was no noise. I Had a nice meal in the adjacent reasterant, and then had a good sleep. after a long and tiring journey.
I would like to thank all the hotel staff for there hard work and helpfulnss. Well Done to All.
I Certainly Would Reccomend This Hotel .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don45 Comfortable rooms with excellent staff
What can I say, the Holliday Inn Express, Taunton was extremely clean throughout. Rooms are ample, comfortable, good shower room and extremely clean - as is the rest of the hotel.
The young staff are all on the ball, well turned out, smiling and polite at all times.
Breakfast was absolutely fine, self service in a well designed kitchen area.
The free wifi was a nice touch, and the room TV was a good size flat screen.
Reception staff excellent and very helpful.
Small but adequate bar with a very polite and helpful barman.
Thank you to all the staff, you are indeed a credit to your selves and Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kalaharimel good all round
the only problem we had during our weeks stay, was that the bed was never made up, the duvet was just thrown back each day.I must point out though that in all our years of staying in Holiday Express this is the first time that we have had to make a complaint.......which spoilt a pleasant stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DDalgarve One small point
The hotel comfortably met my requirements for a base while visiting the Taunton / Yeovil area for a long weekend. My only adverse comment was that my bed was not properly made up during the stay; The bottom sheets were not straightened at all, and the duvet and pillows were just roughly arranged. Small point, but it just took the edge off.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LARADENE Welcoming and efficient staff
Loved the hotel. Slept well helped by the choice of feather pillows. Breakfast a bit hit and miss, had to wait for items to be replenished and a few items unavailable. Staff were superb, room very good, only missing a fridge. Spotlessly clean.

My stay was brief, late arrival all accommodated without hassle and early breakfast and departure. Equally hassle free. Very convenient location for M5 but no significant road noise.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Globear Designed by someone with no hair
Easy to find and very convenient for the M5. Good clean rooms with a reasonable sized bathroom. One real issue, the hair dryer was wired into the wall at the end of the beds, next to the mirror. This meant that my husband couldn't move around the room! Then came the difficult part, like many other ladies I wanted to use a straightner, but how? There was no plug next to the mirror, the only plug was on the other side of the room next to the TV. Not a well thought out room design at all, very glad we only stayed one night!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jojo85 Breakfast poor and services need reviewing
Needed to contact reception tired on my occasions to later find out that my room telephone was broken.
When mentioned to hotel staff I was offered no acknowledgement or even a sorry.
I also don't think offering scrambled egg and sausages qualify as a English breakfast.
However hotel was very clean and bed was comfortable.

Comfortable beds/pillows, good shower facilties, would stay here again. Breakfast being included was a bonus. Only complaint is drinks at the bar are very expensive.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HoseAli Very thin walls
Will avoid staying here is possible a the walls are very thin. I could hear everything going on next door and above me. not a pleasant nights sleep at all. Harvester on the car park was great though if you need want to leave your car behind. Breakfast was good too for a change within HI and HIE

Very welcoming, quiet and enjoyable stay. Breakfast times could be a little later which would help those like myself who do not arrive at hotel until around 2am in the morning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BowlerHuw Excellent facilities and good value
Holiday Inn Express was Clean and Comfortable with the Bedrooms and public areas tastefully decorated. All staff were pleasant, polite and helpful. The breakfast which was included in the price was far superior to that provided by your competitor on the other side of the roundabout, who charges £7.99. The price for staying two nights was very good value for money. We will be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joy21 Lovely room, friendly staff and great value
Hotel is easy to find, has ample parking & the reception staff were friendly & welcoming. We had requested a top floor room & that is what we got. The room was very clean, bright & comfortable. Breakfast was good with everything well stocked. The staff made sure tables were soon cleared & cleaned.
We go away for the weekend about 4 times a year & always stay at a Holiday Inn or Express. Great value for money, in the right spot & just what we want.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DandyHH Freezing room and noisy night
This is the first time we have stayed in an express by Holiday Inn. the room was clean and comfortable, once we had switched the air conditioning off. It was a cold day, and the room was freezing. The air con was quite noisy immedaitely above the bed and would have made sleep impossible. We were astonished at the size of the place, but thankful for the lift as we were on the top floor.
The bed was quite comfortable, but I was unable to sleep for ages, as there seemed to be some sort of fan going most of the time which made a loud noise every time it wound down.
However once I managed to get to sleep it was ok. The toilet door arrangement seemed a bit odd, we weren't sure if it was supposed to close in both doorways, but never succeeded in closing it to the outside door.
The breakfast was ok, seemed a bit haphazard, all help yourself, could have done with fewer kelloggs cereals,and a wider choice. Keeping pre cooked food hot as always a bit hazardous and husband said the scrambled egg left a lot to be desired.
