Premier Inn Taunton East
Ranked #4 of 17 Hotels in Taunton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 December 2011

We used this Premier Inn as we were going to Cornwall and broke the journey with an overnight stay. All the staff were lovely, dissapointed that the real ale was off and apparently had been the day before also, an oversight by management??
Nice place, nice food and cheerful staff. somewhat unusual :-)

Room Tip: Make a call and speak to the reception staff before arrival

Arrived at approx 7pm 26th Nov, to be greeted by a very cold bedroom. I have stayed at many Premier Inns before as a guest and a paying customer but this bedroom was just very tired looking. The additional sofa bed was very uncomfortable to sit on when watching a very old television. Woken up during the night by noise outside in the car park and then twice with party goers inside the corridor and in their bedroom which was 2 or 3 rooms away! Complained to receptionist in the morning and she just apologised saying 'sorry'. Lack of customer service.. Mr Lenny Henry has alot to answer - with the good night promise!
Overall I would never use this one again but to be fair I have found other Premier Inns better quality and more attentive towards customers.

Room Tip: Do not book a room over looking the large carpark esp on a saturday night

I was lucky to benefit from two nights on very good offers when taking my husband away for the weekend for his birthday and at the same time visiting relatives. This Premier Inn was comfortable, spotlessly clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast at the Beefeater was very good value and the staff here were also very helpful and cheerful.

We have stayed at Taunton East on a few occasions now, the last occasion relations came with us, they were as impressed as we have been in the past. The hotel is clean and comfortable, relatively quiet as it is not too near main roads. The adjacent Beefeater has a good selection of food and the breakfast is excellent value. We have allways found the staff and service to be very good. The hotel is close to the M5, Taunton shopping centre and lovely walks along the Bridgewater canal. I have no hesitation in recommending this particular Permier Inn.

Room Tip: Preferably at the back

When traveling I tend to stay in Premier Inn.

We arrived late due to traffic but the reception staff didn't mind and we were told about the breakfast bar and what other options we had for the morning. Our room was easy to locate and very clean. Unfortunately we had no hand soap or shower gel provided both of them were empty or broken. The walls were very thin and we could hear the person in the room next to us talking and showering and the person adjacent snoring.

We walked down to the breakfast bar and were seated by a large window with a view of the gardem, The table was too small for me and my family so the waitress moved a few tables together to make a larger one for us, which we were very grateful for. We waited 20 minutes to be asked what we wanted to eat and then it arrived 15 minutes later.

Over all Not the best, nor the worst stay I've had in a Premier Inn but it's best to stick to the continental breakfast bar.

We stayed here on the 30th October 2011, for one night, and found it excellent value, clean and comfy. No problem with noise, and the staff were friendly and efficient. Have stayed in lots of Premier Inns and never really have any problems. The Beefeeater restaurant attached is great for food and drink, and the ultimate breakfast for £7.99 is all you can eat and will set you up for the day. We would definitely stay here again.

the premier inn taunton east is a quiet secluded hotel situated just off bridgwater road just 1.5 miles from the centre of my county town, with a beefeater restaurant adjacent it makes the perfect place to stay, just minutes away is the main line railway, m5 motorway and the A30 main route between the west country and london, truly the perfect place to stay.
