Holiday Inn Express Taunton M5, Jct.25

Reviewed July 20, 2014

Stayed here for one night only. It is a very convenient location being just off the M5. The room was spacious and very comfortable - the air conditioning made it even better on a very muggy July night. There were tea and coffee making facilities which you could replenish from the reception area. A tasty breakfast was included; there was a mixture of continental style buffet and hot food - sausages and scrambled egg.
Overall, very good value for money and I would definately stay in a Holiday Inn Express again.

Stayed here overnight on our way to the South Coast. Welcome was friendly and room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great! A good choice of hot buffet and cold buffet style which was replenished frequently. Would definitely stay again.

Used this hotel before because its location is ideal for breaking up the long trip to Cornwall. Checking in was friendly and went smoothly. Rooms are ok but beds are standard size and the bathroom whilst looking clean did have a smell that wasn't pleasant. The big letdown was breakfast, it was a shambles as only a few items were available. No scrambled egg (this is the only egg on the buffet); no sausages (this is the only cooked meat on the buffet); and some of the usual bread options were unavailable. I overheard the reason given for the poor availability and this was that they were busy. Just not good enough I'm afraid someone should be checking to see what needs topping up. Assuming that all breakfast items are available then the breakfast would be adequate, no better. Had some issues with the A/C but these seem to sort themselves out. Overall value on this occasion was below average. Given my experience this time I may look for somewhere else to stay on my next trip.

Room Tip: All rooms are similar, being quite and furnished the same.

We just got back from a one night stay at the Holiday Inn Express. A good value stay, with a nice breakfast thrown in. We stayed to break up a long trip to Cornwall, ideally located just off the motorway but still a few minute drive into the town centre. The hotel shares a car park with a Harvester pub which we ate and drank at,so we cant really rate the bar but it looked good and everything was nice and clean. Basic, but we would recommend.

My husband and I spent Saturday July 5th and had breakfast on the Sunday here. Total satisfaction, staff, rooms, breakfast etc. One teeny complaint, the quality of the toilet paper is awful, didn't realize that it was possible to buy loo rolls with such thin paper!!! Would fully recommend this hotel..

Room Tip: Our room faced the car park.. No noise.

We usually stay at the Holiday Inn but on this occasion they were full and book the express instead. Very different but will stay again. The location is perfect in that it is just off j25 M5. There is a frequent park and ride which picks up just outside the hotel and drops you in the town centre for £2.20 all day up until around half seven. The hotel offers a variety of take away menus to guests and they don't mind if you have food delivered. There is a complimentary breakfast in the morning, which offers something for everyone. Yoghuts to fruit, toast and rolls withe cheese or marmalade, scrambled egg or sausage or baked beans. The reception staff are very helpful Nd friendly. It was a pleasure to stay. Will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the reception. We had a ground floor room and could smell cigarette smoke f...
