Premier Inn Taunton East
Ranked #4 of 17 Hotels in Taunton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Having left penzance at 7.20 pm to travel back to London via a30 we encountered a deep mist just past Exeter and stupidly we hadn't considered that the a30, although anextremely busy road, does not have lighting! 2 ladies alone - we were rreally frightened as despite bad lighting mother vehicles were exceeding the speed limit. We saw a sign for Staunton and drove 11 miles down a country lane before arriving in the city/town. By then it was almost midnight. We were desperate and thanks to mobile phone we tried Travelodge who had no rooms available and when asked if they knew of alternatives we were told that they didn't know of any other hotels in the area!!! Needless to say we will never attempt to muse them again. Premier Inn was the next call and we could not have had betternserice from Anthony who directed us from where we were and promised to hold the room form us. We then encountered major diversions in Staunton and what should have been a 5 minute journey took almost an hour!! What a sanctuary we found!! Anthony welcomed us and was very concerned for our welfare. Our room was absolutely lovely with great facilities and the most amazing bed. We set off again at 7.20 and headed for London again - this time in pouring rain but with daylight on our side!! I will not hesitate to recommend Premier Inn to many one who will listen!!! Anthony was a young man who is a great ambassador for the brand and I sincerely hopenthatnhe is recognised for his "talent". Food looked fantastic too but we set off early so didn't stop for breakfast. Than km you so much Premier Inns - you have got it right!!!

Room Tip: Any room - beds are amazing!

What more can you say about a premier inn ? Same old style. They advertise special offers and as we have family near by, we have never been able to secure one of these offers !! Have stayed in private hotels near by for same price and would recommend that as the stagnate is better

We stayed here for two nights. The place had been modernised, updated and redecorated so the rooms were clean & modern. Rooms were quiet with comfortable beds and there was plenty of hot water!

However, the receptionist was not particularly efficient and had messed up our reservations for dinner & breakfast.

Overall, generally it was very good.

Given how inexpensive this hotel is, it's surprisingly good. Very clean and comfy bedrooms, good breakfast (was a bit busy on the Bank Holiday Monday, but the breakfast was still good!), good location just off the main road (you'll have to drive if you want to get into Taunton) but not noisy inside.

Stayed at this premier inn whilst in Taunton on business. From the minute I went to reception I was made to feel very welcome and treat with respect and friendliness. The booking in process was seamless, dealt with by a very cheerful young girl in a very professional manner.
As is usually the case with premier inns the room was well fitted out, had an extremely comfortable bed, the bathroom was a newer design than others I have stayed in and I think it works better. Good wifi is available with the first half hour free. Food was at the Beefeater next door where again the service and quality was very good. Parking is free, which isn't always the case as I found last time I stayed in a premier inn in Birmingham. When next staying in Taunton I will use this hotel again.

We stayed two nights here & were VERY impressed with the hotel/room! We have stayed here before, but quite a few years ago, and so were surprised at the changes. Liked the idea of the lights coming on as you walk down the corridor & the new room decor was great. The new Hypnos bed was very comfy & the purple lights above the bed . . set the mood! ;) Only one slight thing - the extractor fan/system seems quite loud (in the bedroom!) once its been running a minute or two. Overall, if this is going to be the new standard of room, then bring it on!

Totally refurbished with very comfy bed and everything it says on the tin. The only disappointment was the lack of a grab and go breakfast. We just wanted a cup of tea and some toast, ended up at the nearest supermarket cafe as the full Premier Inn breakfast is expensive and not what we wanted.
