We rather like this hotel because it means we can bring our dogs but not end up in some doggy old dive. There's nothing particularly glamorous about it - it's a typical corporate chain on an unassuming office park right on the junction of the motorway - but that makes it incredibly convenient. Air conditioning meant we could regulate the temperature (nice and straightforward - nothing complicated), comfortable pillows & beds, and a decent breakfast all made this incredible value (and if you're n...

As per previous reviews it's a very good budget hotel, perfect for a stop over. Good value, friendly staff and the refurb makes for lovely rooms. Very quiet being well back from the M5. Just ashame the harvester was closed while we were there.

We booked an overnight stay via the Internet. The process was very easy and we were expected. The staff were very polite and helpful and allocated us a room on the ground floor as we have as all dog. Our room was great and the bathroom had an ingenious use of the door (double use). I think the hotel has had a recent refurb as everywhere was smart and clean.

Stayed here over the Radio 1's Big weekend which was the ideal place to stay just off the M5 as we were travelling down from the North. The room was big enough for our needs and the bed was comfy. It was a bit noisy on the Saturday night in the early hours but I guess that was due to people coming back from the big weekend. I didn't personally eat the breakfast but my family enjoyed the cold things but said the hot food wasn't that great. We couldn't get the wifi to work in our room which w... Read more

My wife and I recently spent four nights here, using it as a base to watch Somerset cricket (or shop). We had a good welcome - the staff were exceptionally friendly throughout. The rooms were not enormous, and strangely coloured fairly dark. The beds were very comfortable, if a little hard. The bathroom had everything you would want. There was a walk in shower, and bath gel etc provided. It was good to have the breakfast in the same building - cooked if you like it - the sausages were way abov... Read more

We broke our journey to Cornwall at this hotel, primarily because of the location - just off the M5. Very friendly welcome from the reception team. Good standard as one would expect from this chain. Limited evening menu but other places are a few minutes walk away e.g. Harvester. The Manager suggested a local pub and rang them to try to secure a booking for us. The staff are superb - very professional and friendly.

This Holiday Express give an assurance even in the car park were a sense of security is experienced. The reception staff were very welcoming and cheerful and gave us a great upgrade to a vast family room. The hotel appeared very new but was in fact an excellent renovation. The room was ver quiet and everything was stocked complete with tea, coffee etc, Breakfast was typical for Holiday Inn Express and there was plenty of space, Certainly recommend this Hotel.

Stayed just for 1 night as a stopover. Room/bed/bathroom was very nice - clean and comfortable (as you would expect for HI) and there was PLENTY of onsite parking available. We were allocated a ground floor room, which if I'm honest, I was a little concerned would be noisy due to other guests coming and going, but there was no issue at all.

Pleasant staff, a more than adequate air conditioned room which was well serviced and came with a very comfortable bed, a breakfast which exceeded expectation all added up to a pleasant overnight stopover. A Harvester eatery very close by meant we could stay on site to eat and drink. This was my first experience of H I Express and I was impressed.

Really could not fault it. Bed was especially comfortable and the place was very clean. Plenty of free parking if you have a car. Staff were also friendly at check-in and departure. On the edge of Taunton and the option to eat onsite was the Harvester next door (I opted for a 10 minute walk instead). See separate review. Did not try breakfast, though the free breakfast seems to be exactly the same at every HIE and is limited.

We have used this hotel for many years end route to our holiday in Cornwall. Even though it was a little expensive than in the past (although we did book only a week ago) it always represents great value. After a horrible 7 and half hour journey from Essex it is always nice to know that there is a great nights stay ahead. The breakfast that is included is brilliant value with great choice for all tastes. We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

I find that holiday inn express can vary depending on where you are, but this is a fine example. The desk team were spot on, acknowledged my membership and had me checked in before I knew it making for a pleasant experience. The room was brilliant. Already made up for the four of us and the air conditioning running to ensure it was at a good temperature. The harvester, a few minutes walk, I would thoroughly recommend visiting.

Great Christmas decorations & warm welcome, off to a great start! Loved the room, it felt comfortable & had a great bathroom. Lovely space at reception for a relaxing drink in the evening. Breakfast is a weak point though. The coffee & pastry selection were good but the cooked options weren't great. I don't eat sausages & the scrambled egg just wasn't appetising. Having said that, we did enjoy our stay & were very comfortable despite the freezing outdoor conditions.
