We stayed at this hotel for one night on the way down to Ilfracombe. We had booked an Executive Room having had fabulous stays at the Holiday Inn Chester West Executive Rooms on many occasions. When we arrived we found that though it was an Executive Room it was half the size of the one in Wales and though it had been decorated recently we were underwhelmed. On the website it stated that we had bathrobes and slippers, but we only found slippers. We mentioned this to the man on the desk who looke... Read more

Large and comfortable room. Very comfortable beds and very quiet considering the proximity of the M5. We had a really comfortable night. The new refurbishment has worked and the hotel and its staff are to be commended. Breakfast is fresh and excellent quality. I have no hesitation in recommending it.

Great convenient position, modern, reasonably comfortable, but irritating problems from the beginning. Firstly the trolley available to take our heavy luggage to our room had a fault with its wheels so in the end the reception clerk had to help us. as it was impossible to wheel straight. The room was OK - typical room for a chain hotel, even though we had upgraded so it was a bit larger. Dinner was pretty dire - an accountant's menu - very boring, no sparkle in the menu at all - try our "priz... Read more

Recently stayed here on a work course in the area. The hotel is typical generic chain hotel but the rooms are modern, of a good size and spotless, The biggest complaint is the lack of fresh vegetables available on the restaurant menu. All food appears to be fried or griddled so after a 3 night stay it is a little tedious. All in all decent hotel and decent value.

Stayed here just for 1 night for a girls weekend away as we wanted to see Taunton & was a good location for the 4 of us that live in different parts of the country. The 2 x twin rooms we had were of a good standard, clean & comfy. The reception staff were very friendly, advising on taxi's, suitable places to eat etc. The Night porter was great (we thought he was the manager - so smart in a suit) giving us extra teabags, milks etc. The buffet breakfast was hot, great quality and the restaurant wa...

This is the third time we've stayed here over the past ten years as we have family nearby. The rooms have been upgraded and are very comfortable. The evening meal was good and breakfast was nice too. All the staff were very helpful, especially the gentleman on reception in the evening. Would definitely return and recommend.

From the grumpy greeting if your are unfortunate to check in late to the lost boiled eggs ordered at breakfast this place continues to disappoint. This time around I was offered a refurbished room which was OK. They also never acknowledge your status with their reward scheme and forget to log the welcome points. Shame the holiday Inn express next-door was fully booked again.

Booked this hotel for a business trip. Though the reception was a bit chaotic (wrong name) all the rest was fine: good AC in the room, new showers, ample gym (with pool) but most of all: quiet room. at least mine was. And that is surprising, as the hotel is next to the motorway: I could still sleep with the windows open. Obviously this not a leisure stay hotel: is business and mostly blue collar. But there's nothing wrong with that. Just fine. What stood out for me was the friendliness of the ... Read more

The hotel is in a great location for where I needed to be and to get to other destinations. You get what you expect from this Holiday Inn. Ticks all the average boxes and doesn't underwhelm! Bed, bath and service all ok. Handy for what I needed but it's not for the high rollers. This brand just offers what you need, where you need it.

We arranged a six nights stay to explore the area. The room was adequate but the general service in the hotel was very poor. For example we ordered a daily newspaper but mid stay it was forgotten. One night we were woken up at 2am by the fire alarm which provided to be a false alarm , no apology or explanations were given, no member of staff contacted us and we had to ring reception to find out what was happening.

Had an amazing stay, staff were very friendly and helpful, lovely idea that they put single females traveling alone on the ground floor, the only this with this was I was split from my coupled friends on the floor above, used the pool, jacuzzi and sauna towels provided which was a bonus, food in the restaurant was average, would definitely go back. One staff member in particular James was extremely Plesent and too the time to chat with myself and my friend while at the bar.

Stayed here on a stopover travelling West. Receptionist friendly and helpful. Room was clean and pretty much as you'd expect for a standard room, with all the usual amenities. Only thing that was not up to scratch (in my opinion) was the bed. One of those squidgy cheap feeling beds where every movement of the other half (and I'm sure vice versa) was amplified across the bed meaning a not too brilliant night's sleep. Didn't use any of the hotels other facilities, so not able to comment. Free wifi... Read more

I stay at this holiday Inn for a couple of nights on business trip.

Hotel is easily accessed and signposted just off the M5. Rooms and public areas have recently been decorated and recarpeted. Service was exceptionally friendly by all staff throughout the stay. If you intend to eat in the restaurant, I recommend you book a table when you check in. We had to wait almost an hour for a table as if was so busy, and many guests ate in the longe instead. The restaurant was typically overpriced with a small curry costing £14, but a double room was only £72, parking a... Read more

We have stayed at this hotel many times, from the moment you check in the staff make you feel really welcome. The decor in the rooms is modern and they are maintained to a high standard, the same can be said for all areas of the hotel. The health/spa centre is great, the pool was a big hit with the kids. We had an evening meal in the bar/lounge area and breakfast in the restaurant- the quality of the food and the service is superb. I can thoroughly recommend this hotel.

We regularly use this hotel as the location is perfect for visiting family nearby but we've literally given up expecting anything other than average.
