The hotel has ample parking available as you arrive just off the M5, and rooms are fairly spacious with good sized clean bathrooms. Rooms very quiet and wifi was strong too. There is a pub 100m away from the hotel but was a 30 minute wait when I was there (Friday night) but there are ample dining opportunities a short... More

The quality of this HIEX is above the usual HIEX standards. The rooms are modern and have quality mattresses and bedding. There is a nice bar area with soft chairs where you can relax after your journey. The staff are welcoming. The location is close to motorway, but also there are some eating options within a short distance. The free... More

I stayed here for 1 night at the end of May. The Hotel is modern, well furnished and immaculately clean. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included in the room rate - the standard Holiday Inn Express meal. Breakfast was generally good but I would have appreciated a better quality sausage. The hotel is adjacent... More

If I had to choose a budget hotel chain in Taunton (which this is compared to local rates) I'd come here every time. The staff are friendly, efficient and down to earth unlike the bowing and scrapping you are subjected to in the more expensive Holiday Inn across the road. Eggs at breakfast are powdered so that is a negative... More

This place is an absolute must if you're looking to break up a long journey with a dog. Firstly, make sure you book the Holiday Inn Express and not the Holiday Inn as they are very near each other. The hotel is excellent value for money and the facilities for a budget hotel are way above what you would expect.... More

Bog standard Holiday Inn - once in the room you could be in Hong Kong, New Zealand etc etc - in fact anywhere in the world. They all look the same, same fittings, same shower facilities etc . This location was very handy for the M5 for arriving & getting away early the following morning.
