“Excellent weekend stay”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

Stayed 2 nights with my 2 children - age 5 years and 5 months, and my friend with her 7 year old, whilst visiting family nearby. A family suite was big enough for us all (incl. travel cot) and was very clean and comfortable. The staff in the hotel were fantastic, very child friendly - especially the waitresses and waiters in the restaurant, they made eating there with children actually enjoyable! Breakfast offered a very good selection and the kids loved the 'make your own' pancakes. Dinner was rather pricey however with the 'kids eat free' it evened the bill out to an acceptable level. There were games to play in the bar area to keep the kids amused and the swimming pool was an added bonus. I would highly recommend this hotel especially if you have children (including babies!) and can't thank the staff enough for making it that extra bit relaxing.

This stopover was en route to Tiverton after a day out on the Cambrian Rally in North wales.
Welcome was warm and very friendly and the booking in process was swift and efficient. Receptionist did good job in selling me an evening meal reservation and breakfast but to be honest not difficult.
Room was spotless and just what I needed after over 5 hours of driving, warm, welcoming and above all comfortable.
Having booked on the Booking.com website got a really good deal at £64 plus £10.95 for breakfast which I probably would not have had if I had paid full price for the room.

Breakfast was not included and was expensive. Breakfast was stressful as we were put right in the way of the waitress diving out tea and coffee and the host receiving the breakfast customers, even though there were plenty of other tables. Plus point was the pool.

Stayed 2 nights at this hotel - Room and bathroom clean and well appointed. Staff generally are helpful and cheerful. Breakfasts were very good but not terribly impressed with dinner. Menu not extensive and wine list was too expensive.

Very nice hotel, clean, very good service and breakfast would definitely use again when in area.
Only downfall was no free internet access available not even in lounge.
If this important suggest you use the holiday inn express across the road, where access is free.

Thank you so much.

The great news is that our guests who are Gold and Platinum IHG Rewards Club members are now entitled to complimentary internet use. This rewards our loyal guests in the short term and the probability is that this will be extended to all Rewards Club members at some point next year.

Thank you so much for your feedback and we hope that we see you again soon.

Typical holiday inn. Staff we very welcoming. Good room sizes furnishings are quite functional although not luxurious. Good breakfast and good gym. There is a holiday inn express almost next door but i would recommend this hotel. Hotel was good value and very close to motorway so easy to find and access. Would certainly use again if staying in this area.

We used this hotel as a transit point on our way to Devon. From arrival to departure we were well looked after - reception was welcoming, fast and friendly.
The room we were allocated was faultless in terms of cleanliness and facilities, including a large flat screen TV on which to watch England play.
We had dinner in the restaurant and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food for a very reasonable cost. Service was excellent including wine and beer recommendations.
Drinks are not hugely expensive for this standard of hotel and if you like to try different beers have a go at their Quantock Brewery bottled beer especially the "Wills Neck".
No hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Room Tip: The executive rooms are very well specified - ask if there's any chance of an upgrade when you a...

Fantastic to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much.
The local ales have certainly been well received since we introduced them earlier in the year (and Wills Neck is my personal favourite too)!
Hope to see you again soon.
