Premier Inn Taunton East
Ranked #3 of 17 Hotels in Taunton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 April 2012

Bit of a dump, normally I like Premier Inn's but this one needs an update.

TV was a small portable tube telly in the room, various freeview channels not working (may sound trivial, but when stuck in a hotel for several days away from home, tv can be the only entertainment).

Anyway, looks dated, restaurant is a "local pub" next door on the main road, food and staff was OK though, but the "hotel" needs a facelift. Walls are paper thin and very noisey with other loud drunk occupants. I ended up changing hotel.

My companion and I stayed at this Premier Inn for 2 nights last week. We were given a family room (with sofa bed) so it's slightly more spacious than the normal double room. Clean, comfy room, and welcoming staff... just as we would expect from Premier Inn.

This Premier Inn doesnt have a lift, but it didn't bother us. And my companion was happy as there was ample parking space (off road) for his toy.

The adjacent Beefeater restaurant serves dinner till 10pm. Try their rack of ribs... they're to die for!

After negotiating a busy roundabout we found this Premier Inn well placed for access to M5 and routes heading towards North Devon. The staff were polite and friendly and the rooms were to a good clean standard. The Beefeater restaurant next door although rather dark provided a generous sized evening meal and a well cooked breakfast, The service was good and staff were friendly and efficient.

Room Tip: Most of the bedrooms are overlooking the car park
