I was really surprised to see how expensive accommodation is in central Taunton. Nothing under £50 per night for single occupancy, and plenty over. Way over even. However I chanced upon Lowdens House on the Net, and they bucked this trend. £45 including breakfast, with £40 without breakfast being a nice option. Having said that I would recommend that you...

Excellent value (one of the least expensive in Taunton) & suited us perfectly. We arrived by bus and this place is an easy under-10-minute walk from the station by paved footpath (found it on map), dragging luggage. We had a twin room, not huge but adequate, with chair, small flatscreen TV, free wifi, lots of sockets for your chargers, and... More

Easy walking distance to town centre and cricket ground. Typical B & B, not luxurious but clean, functional and very helpful staff. Good breakfast. Road at front quite busy so if you are a light sleeper or not used to any noise you may want to request room at the back. Easy parking.

Lovely hosts, great location in the heart of Taunton. My room was very spacious and clean. The only small niggles I have is that the extractor fan in the bathroom stayed on a bit too long and the tv was very small. However free highspeed wifi, lots of plug sockets and tea and coffee making facility's more than make up... More

We were attending a wedding in Taunton and enquired to see if they would have three rooms available for mid-day. This would allow to check-in and get changed before the wedding. The owners obliged and they were actually ready at 11:30. The rooms were nice - although the en-suites were rather small. Some of the decor lets it down. In... More

We stayed in Lowdens House recently for one week. I don't think we could have chosen better. Very comfortable, firm beds. Friendly, accommodating host. Thanks, Jane! Room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Lovely extra touch of chocolate biscuits to go with the tea / coffee in room. Plenty of car parking spaces and within walking distance of town. What more...

This stay was our fourth at this excellent B&B. Nice room, very good breakfasts, friendly and accommodating hosts, terrific locations and reasonably priced. We've stayed here with four people, three people, and this time with two people. Every time it was perfect. There's a Tesco literally across the street that also has cash machines and a coin laundromat about one... More

Stayed three nights with friends for cricket match. All ensuite rooms clean and comfortable with TV and tea and coffee-making facilities. Plenty of off-road parking, great breakfast and friendly landlady. 5 minutes walk from town centre and ten from cricket. Great value.
