Premier Inn Taunton Ruishton (M5, J25) Hotel
Ranked #5 of 17 Hotels in Taunton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Perfectly positioned just off the M5. So close, but never heard the traffic in the room. Wonderful old pub next door, just a shame the food wasn't quite as wonderful! Didn't spoil our stay though, we will use this hotel again when in that area.

Exactly what you should expect, clean, tidy, recently decorated, reasonably modern refit, not as tired as the Taunton East Premier Inn but your located on a far busier road. Situated in two two story blocks one in an older building and the other a modern purpose built block called the "annex", we stayed in two rooms (at the £29.00 per room rate) on the second floor at the front of the older Buidling, very good sized rooms, double aspect windows, (39a and 37) and double glazed. Traveling as a family of four we take two rooms but they were unable to locate these next to each other and with two young children there were several heavy fire doors and stairs to be overcome which we've never experienced in a Premier Inn previously, normally families are located on the ground floor but you get what you pay for so no complaints, nice base to break a journey or visit family, older block nearer the road, newer blok nearer the pub, rooms at the rear of either would be the quietest. Breakfast served in adjacent pub, buffet style, (compared to Taunton Easts cooked to order, so a less personal experience) and as to be expected, lots of it and of reasonably good quality and child friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room located to the rear of the annex if you want a week day lie in

My wife and i have just returned home from a lovely weekend here. We use Premier Inn as a base and travel around for the day time, We did use the Carvery next to this Inn and found it very good value for money. The maitre d` "Bertrand" was great his organisational skills are second to none, he was very polite and quick. Also the two female receptionists on this weekend were very helpfull and friendly a credit to the Premier Inn chain.

this prem inn as most of them you stay inn is very good. reception very friendly and helpful. very clean lovely big beds, stayed in annex tripple glaze windows no traffic noise. we have come away for my husbands 66th birthday we are going on the bishops lydiard- minehead steam train today. last night we ate in the ajoining carvery wel omg.arrived at pub about 5 was told no carvery until 6 so we waited with a drink. seated ourself and went up for the carvery,most of it was reheated from earlier in the day, nobody came to ask are you enjoying your meal? everything ok? no nothing after waiting nearly 30 mins for plates to be collected and to be asked would we like sweets no nothing so my husband asked please may we have a pudding. after a nother 25-30mins wait my husband asked what was happening with our pudding and they appeared just like that, i must say had it not been reheated and not waited so very long it would have been exellent value.i think the problem is staff shortage running about like headless chickens. 2 staff in a very large resturant trying to seat people,take money, take orders get drinks come on get it together you can be a great place to eat. i think the secret at the moment is to eat in the bar area b 4 carvery opens looked lovely steaks etc and good servce.

Room Tip: i think you will find most rooms good as lets face it, its a prem inn ive stayed in them for a long...

This was our first stay at a Premier Inn. We were down in Somerset for our daughter's birthday. She has recently moved down to the area so we were a bit unsure where to stay. Read some good reviews for the Premier Inn and decided to give it a go - we had no real expectations. What a jewel. This was undoubtedly one of the nicest hotel experiences we have had. The room was super, the bed and pillows marvellous, the hotel spotless and the staff wonderful - professional and friendly. Would I recommend it? Definitely. Will we be returning? You bet!

Standard Premier Inn to be honest. Bathroom was a bit tired but I'm sure that will change if enough people comment on it.
Would have given it a 2/3 star rating but Zoe was great, really friendly. Encouraged us to book meals early. Breakfast was cooked to order....best poached eggs ever next door.

Would be nice to have a covered walk way to the pub next door

Stopped at this site from the 1/02/13 to 3/02/13. First time in a Premier Inn. The room was very spacious as was the bed. We didn't expect to find a hair drier or drink making facilities. The room was clean and serviced every day. The bed is awesome, very comfortable. The only gripe was that the bathroom did look as if a ten year old had grouted the tiles around the shower and that the sink was cracked, obviously from having the taps fitted over tightly. Would stay again. We had breakfast on the last day, hit the right time as the eggs were just being replaced with one's that didn't look like rubber. Didn't have evening meals as we were eating out with relatives. Acceptable place to stay. Staff are great.

Room Tip: Ask for one in the old building
