We booked a room on line and went though all the correct procedures. If you want to check in before 3 you have to pay a fee of £10. When we arrived at the travelodge it was 3.05pm and we heard the manager say they can not have that room because Mr so and so has called and asked for this room especially. We though this was very rude and also against protocol.We were then told by the receptionist that the manager had given keys out to customers at 2.30 and had not been charged any extra. This is out of order, as I am sure other people just like us went though the correct procedures. Also the 30 minutes free internet is a complete con, as you don't get your full minutes we kept getting cut off after 10 minutes & were unable to gain access for 24 hours. Would not recommend this place, also due to lack of air in rooms as we were unable to open enough windows to get a free flow of air. It was like being in an oven.

Room Tip: Rooms do not have any sound proofing what's so ever. Windows don't open wide enough to let a...

I got a family room for my daughter and I for £75.
Good:
- Decor is nice and fresh
- Clean fresh bedlinen
- Good value WiFi which worked well
Not so good:
- Unpleasant smell in the downstairs corridor
- Receptionist so stern we though we had done something wrong!
- They have not changed the bathroom suit so toilet and shower look a little used!
Would I stay again? Yes but I would still look for other deals in the area

Recently refurbished Ilminster Travelodge is now excellent. In the past the furniture and bedding had let down the excellent location and service, now it offers a super place to stay whilst visiting family.

Just be warned that Travelodge will routinely overbook their hotels. This means that if everyone turns up and you are the last to check in then you will not get your room. Are you prepared to risk that?

Thank you for your review 001001001010101. On rare occasions we do have unexpected take up of arrivals at our hotels. Our hotel staff are fully trained on how to deal with such situations and will always reduce the impact by informing the customer beforehand and by finding alternative accommodation as close by the hotel as possible, we will then cover the cost of any additional travel expenses.

this had to be one of the best travelodges we have stayed in, the new beds and bedding were excellent, and the little chef next door was very nice, plenty of parking too, we would recommend this lodge.

If you choose the Illminster Travelodge do not accept room 114. The extractor fan from the restaurant is just outside the window. It is very noisy and smelly and we had to have the window open as the room was so hot. The refurbishment of this Travelodge seems to have down-graded the rooms. Although the bed was comfortable, the room was clean etc. there was no where to put your suitcase except the floor. There were no comfy chairs or sofa to sit on and the TV was small and wasn't even widescreen.

Stayed at this Travelodge for a couple of nights in June, Firstly - the positives. Location is good and convenient. Ample car park space, adjacent Little Chef restaurant/ Burger King - also a Shell garage with limited supplies of snacks etc.
As for the hotel itself - its a "re furbished" Travelodge. That means brighter rooms, better beds etc. The room itself was of a good size, bathroom adequate.
Some minor issues with cleaning / housekeeping - the bathroom had clearly not been cleaned fully on check in - there was a distinct edge of dust around the perimeter of the floor, and I found the plastic cover of a razor in the floor, when I stood on it!

I was interested to note from a previous review that reception offered a fan for the rooms - if I had only known that! The room was very hot - as was the weather - throughout my stay, and this would have been very welcome. Please - when its hot and stuffy - make fans complimentary, not optional. The windows only have the usual restricted opening, for fresh air ventilation.

Now - if you are thinking of taking advantage of Wi -Fi ( payable, although I can never understand why ), be aware. Its slow, and the room I was in really struggled to get reception. I had to pop out into the corridor to get re connected, frequently. Not acceptable really,
I have emailed Travelodge about this - sadly, no response. Disappointing. Interestingly - reception staff let it slip that they have issues themselves with Wi - Fi connectivity.
Overall - a reasonable Travelodge. Could easily be a brilliant Travelodge with just a few remedial touches.
