Whilst visiting family over Christmas in the Taunton area we stayed 3 nights at the Holiday Inn (not the near bye Holiday Inn Express). For our stay the hotel should have been 5 Star apart from the price required for Internet access. £5.00 per hour which would appear from the tariff to be an hour continuous - so don't log in twice in the day. The staff explanation was that they are 'locked in' to a supply contract for the service. We think that this will cause us in the future to look at other hotels who don't make such a charge.
On the good side the room, bathroom, cleanliness, staff attitude, price, and facilities were all great and deserving of 5 stars. If the internet access charge is fixed then it's back on my list.
