“Good family value”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Reception staff friendly but hotel a bit tired.

We reserved 2 family rooms for 4 adults and 3 kids great value , all beds comfortable everything was fine no complaints at all

If you have phoned ahead to the Beefeater reserve a table in the resturant check on arrival at the hotel as our table reservations were not recorded for either breakfast or the evening meal. Had to sent the steak back as it was not acceptable but the next one was perfect.

Room Tip: If you are a poor sleeper best to be on the back of the hotel although even at the front it seems fa...

We have stayed here several times and always found the staff very warm and friendly. The hotel is located next to a Beefeater that serves good pub grub. The only aspect that lets the hotel down is that it could do will some upgrading. Compared to other Premier Inns it is starting to look a little tired around the edges. It's still a great value hotel all the same.

Would give this hotel a higher rating if it was re-furbished. The location is good, the hotel is quiet with no road noise. The beds were comfortable enough for a low cost hotel and the shower is powerful, with plenty of large towels. The rooms were clean and the price was reasonable for a family room.

So everything is premier except the décor! The rooms need re-painting the carpet replacing and the TV's upgrading.

Another bug bear is internet access, why can't English hotels just let everyone have free wifi it is essential nowadays and is not a luxury you would expect to pay for. It is too much hassle to create an account and login to every hotel that you visit. In the USA all hotels have free wifi with no hassle.

Room Tip: On side of the corridor facing the nursery / playground rather than the car park for the quietest ro...

I have to admit it, I am a big fan of the Premier Inn, I know a lot of people can't stand them but I've stayed in quite a few and though they are repetitive they do the job for one or two nights. This one in Tauton is exception, the usual purple decor and the obligatory pub next door. It's quite a walk into Taunton but staff will call a taxi if needed.

Especially great if you get the right price.

Having stayed just one night at the premier in, i found it to be great value for money, friendly people and a very comfortable bed. What more could i ask for. I did use the Beefeater which was located in another building just a short walk away and i found the staff there equally as friendly and helpfull.

Firstly let me say the staff are excellent, actually better than excellent ... my normal hotel choices are 4/5 star across the world and I've had far, far worse experiences.
The hotel is spotlessly clean, but it's basic as hell !! Decor isn't quite as nice as other PI's and probably due for an update soon. When they do, i hope that they install a reasonable TV (I've not seen a 14" CRT for a very long time !)
Bed was OK but i'm sure other PI's have been better.

The Premier Inn on the Bridgewater Road was well up to standard. The staff were friendly and helpful. Although the rooms weren't of the new layout, they were clean and the heating wasn't noisy.

There's an approx 100m uncovered walk to the Beefeater for Breakfast which is worth remembering for those with mobility issues.

The hotel is close to the M5 a convenient to local facilities including the Odeon Cinema which is nearby.
