“Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here whilst visiting family between Xmas and new year. Great value as I got the room for £35. Rooms are nicely furnished with a large screen tv. Staff are really nice and helpful. Breakfast is included with a help yourself continental offering as well as beans, sausage and scrambled eggs from the hot plate. Lots of free parking on site too. There is a harvester pub/restaurant next door.

This is our third year at this Hotel as a family break visiting our family in Axminster. We travel from Newcastle Upon Tyne a long drive but we know when we get to the Hotel we get a friendly and warm welcome, never too much and especially the friendly help we got from Tom to arrange for a travel cot, bedding for the spare sofa bed and spare towels.
The room is excellent and spacious and spotless cleaned. We have to do a bit of driving every day, their are other Hotels near Axminster but staying in Holiday Inn Express worth the driving for the excellent stay and a good night sleep, Breakfast is included basic but more than adequate, the only down side this year was keeping run out of bread rolls, cheese slices etc. but I believe was the high level of residents than usual for this time of the year, but their should be prepare for that, but did not spoiled our stay we definitely will stay again next year.
Overall I would recommend this Hotel to anyone for a short Holiday break, well situated just off the M5 J25 and there is a nice Harvester Restaurant next door and plenty of free parking good Hotel.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are large, we stayed in room 203 I assume 103 and 003 will be the same.

We. Stayed one night en route to Cornwall December 22nd nice big room lovely welcome from gentleman at Reception. The heating wasn't working but whilst we went to the Harvester 2 mins walk across the car park brilliant, the guy had checked the problem and had put an independent heater in the room so we didn't have to move rooms. It was very toasty when we got back impressive ++. The breakfast was self service but with hot food as well once again this was very good and plenty of choice - would definitely stay at this sort of hotel again

Located just off M5 very easy to get to.For the price I would rather have stayed in normal Holiday Inn as the choices are greater and its the same price! Breakfast had sausages eggs and beans but no bacon :(. Not a bad hotel but next time in Taunton will choose another hotel.

Dear Stuart F

Thank you for your review, although I am sorry that you would chose not to stay with us again in the future.

You mentioned the rate you paid during your stay was similar to our sister hotel, however breakfast is complimentary for all our guest as is standard Wi-Fi, were as you would be paying extra for both of these at other competitors. Also our rate do vary depending on time of year and availability so I would suggest checking our prices again when making your discussion on accommodation as we do have some fantastic deal available throughout the year.

Once again, thank you for your review and we hope we will see you again in the future.

Kind Regards

Robert Holmes
General Manager

Stayed here over night on way to Bristol airport easy to find just off junction 25 of the M5 motorway I was travelling up from Cornwall. The room was fine very comfortable the tea/coffee making facilities was a bonus there is an harvester on site if you require a meal the breakfast was plentiful with cereal/fruit a hot selection is available should you wish. There was plenty of free parking.

Room Tip: worth staying here and if you book seven days or more in advance it will save you more money

I spend one night in this hotel on business trip. My room was double room with two beds. Room was quite small for continental room and typical for UK. Bathroom was nice organised and spacious. Air-condition was quite noisy. Breakfast was ok not great. There was nice local restaurant next door to this hotel. Lobby bar was ok. Nice place to stay for short time.

I was looking for a hotel to crash in with my wife and son while we were in Taunton visiting friends.After many hours searching for the best rate for a hotel in the area I came across the Holiday Inn Express for £44 a night through Trivago.
The hotel was great, it was exceptionally clean, and all the staff we came in contact with were very friendly.
We had the breakfast one morning which is included in the room rate. It was fine for an included breakfast. Their was a range of cereal and fruit.The hot items included Egg, Sausage and Beans but they don't do Bacon.
Their is a Harvester in the same car park as the hotel which is convenient for an evening meal.
Reading many of the reviews of this hotel people mention a bus lane. Seriously if you take this then perhaps you should get your eyes tested. It is clearly sign posted. A little tip is when you drive into the business park and see the Holiday Inn Express sign go to the left and use the mini roundabout.
All things considered it was a great stay at a great rate and I will certainly consider going back next time i am in Taunton.
