“Great night despite the January deluge”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Short notice / late booking as had to be down in Barnstaple 1st thing, so after monsoon of M6 and M5 so glad we booked into here.

They've almost finished the extension/refurb, so just the Reception area to finish by the look of things.

Couldn't fault the bedroom, all quiet and comfy.

Didn't even use the wifi, though large flatscreen was a nice surprise.

No noise from corridor or outside either

We go to the Bristol HiFi Show every year and tend to put a few nights away into the equation. This year, Premier Inn had an exceptional offer of £29 per room, per night so we booked three nights. I don't know what it is about a Premier Inn room but as soon as I walk in I swear my blood pressure goes down a few notches.

Everything was predictably good. The room was a little less warm than we wanted but it warmed up to "our temperature" in just a few minutes. The room and bathroom were clean and well equipped - it's always lovely to get a decent cuppa as soon as you arrive. And it's so nice to be able to get extra supplies from reception.

We'd actually booked the room as a twin but when we got there the second bed was a single - and separate from the main double bed. This seemed unusual as we'd always found that a "double" bed, parted to create two singles alongside each other, was the norm. In the end we both slept in the double bed and found it wide enough and comfortable enough to give a good night's sleep.

As always, Premier Inn staff are fantastic; friendly, without being overly so, and efficient and helpful. We breakfasted at the Beefeater next door where the food and staff were, again, excellent. We do, however, always search out local Italian restaurants so only ate there on one evening but the food, prices and service were very good.

I haven't yet found a Premier Inn that I couldn't wholeheartedly recommend - as I say, predictably good.

Welcoming staff, rooms are clean, tidy and very up to date, bathroom (with over bath shower) were very clean and everything needed. Pub within 1 minute walk from reception served fantastic evening means and breakfast was so good I'd go again just for that.

We stayed for one night in a brand new room in the new extension to this hotel. It was a lovely big room with nice comfy bed and pillows, lovely new TV and lovely and quiet. The only problem was that the shower in the bathroom did not work. We reported this to the receptionist when we left the following day. She said she would report this to Housekeeping and offered us a refund but to date this has not been forthcoming. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel, lovely for the price.

Also, the adjoining Restaurant The White Lodge was very good value for money and lovely food.

Another great stay with Premier Inn. Taunton East is either new or recently refurbished, but either way it is a lovelyexample of how a motel should be; clean, comfortable, quiet and well located close to the M5. There is a link to the Beafeater restuarant next door which serves above average pub food in the evening and broad choice for breakfast. Staff at both sites are friendly and helpful, even when short staffed and run off their feet!

We went in to book ten rooms and were told we had to speak to the Manager about group bookings. The manager was standing 2 metres away from us talking to someone. She never acknowledged us, carried on talking about non business subjects, never looked at us, never said...'I'll be with you in a minute'. The receptionist didn't interrupt her either but said she would ask her to call us later.
No phone call, nothing. And apparently there are no group rates anyway.
We know Premier Inns are good but this one just lost our business. And for us to call them is 10p a minute!
