Excellent accommodation in walking distance from town centre with Tesco store on the corner. I booked a single but I had a very comfortable double bed. Breakfast was excellent - raspberries were included too! Very nice, helpful owners. I will definitely return.

Nice little place, bed was comfy & clean, shower needs some attention, I had it on full and it only just dribbled out, any less and it would proberbly suck the water back up.
Excellent breakfast. This is a no thrills clean, warm and friendly place to stay, very nice people and only 2 mins walk to the town center.
Would stay again.

We only stayed here one night to break up an otherwise lengthy journey elsewhere. We were unfamiliar with Taunton but were pleased with our choice of Lowdens' House. The Tesco closeby enabled us to conveniently buy things for our onward journey and we were near to the river by which we had a pleasant walk. A lovely park within easy walking distance with some unexpected sunshine was a bonus.

We were made to feel very welcome even though our stay was a short one. The breakfast was wonderful and cooked to perfection. From this aspect, we were sorry to be moving on.

Very convenient location to town (via carpark across from Tesco's) and National Express bus station 5-10 mins walk max and also Musgrove Park Hospital (5 mins walk) and of course - Tesco's across the road for supplies! Great to have microwave available for guests with plates and cutlery for a late Tesco meal. Very handy for a late dinner after the 6-8pm hospital visiting hours! Breakfast was excellent - not only an English cooked breakfast - all or your choice, but cereal, yoghurt, fruit, croissants etc - great start to the day!!
Our room was number 8 - up 32 stairs, located at the front with the window - low roof but spacious with small tv, chair, 2 single comfy beds and low storage with drawers either side and kettle with Tea / coffee supplies - replenished daily with a kit/kat or twitz bar!!
A bit confused about when the room was serviced and when towels / bath mat /hand towel were replaced.... not a daily change....not advised!
Ensuite bathroom was fine - individual hot water service in shower and sink. Very low pressure but hot water for shower was fine. Clean, bright and spacious.
Very convenient to Musgrove Park hospital - 5 mins walk max.
Safe parking at front for 1 or 2 cars - many spaces at rear (around the corner - opposite Tesco)
Excellent to have internet access - wifi - no hassles!!
Stayed nearly 3 weeks while Mother was in hospital - owners not particularly interested in our situation or very friendly - but polite and amiable.
Would certainly recommend - for price, facilities and convenient location!!

Room Tip: Nice view from front rooms but traffic noise if window left open! 32 stairs to top floor rooms.

Very friendly, helpful owners and located a convenient 5 mins walk from town. Comfortable bed, nice breakfast and ample parking. A couple of points...the en suite was a bit tired and some cosmetic changes would make a big difference to the look and feel of the room. Function wise, the bedroom was fine but again the decor didn't overly impress compared to other similar priced b&b's we've stayed in. Overall though, a good budget b&b but with potential to be brilliant.

We had a very positive experience staying at Lowdens House, from start to finish. Booking on line was easy and followed up with a personal email. We rceived a very warm welcome. Our room was pleasant and quiet and newly decorated with a good-sized bathroom. We had an excellent cooked breakfast and were able to walk to the centre of town in less than 10 minutes. Any time we are in Taunton, we shall certainly stay at Lowdens House.
