I left it late to book to stay in Taunton over Easter, just wanted a fairly central place to stay. This place fitted the bill nicely. Nothing plush or fancy, may look a bit aged but actual a well refurbished old building. Good facilities, good rooms, bit of a climb to the top floor for those who have trouble with...

Stayed for just one night with a few other couples. Chose this hotel because of its central location for us to shop whilst the men played golf locally. Impressed by the decor and cleanliness of the hotel, main area and our room. It was quieter than I expected despite it being located on a main road. Breakfast was freshly cooked...

Good breakfast served promptly by friendly staff. Is handy location for town and lots of nearby restaurants for dinner or a Sainsbury's if staying in. Room was a good size and here's on site parking which is a boon in Taunton where some other hotels even charge residents to park.

I stayed here for a single night. The location was great and the bedroom itself looks quite pretty. Unfortunately reception never answered it's phone so if you want anything you have to walk down. Which wasn't great as we received no toiletries and I require a crutch to walk, after calling multiple times I gave up and had to head...

Stayed here on Saturday night, room clean, hotel clean. Greeted politely, however, I feel a staff uniform policy would help, the young man who checked me in was wearing an old grey t-shirt. Breakfast was good, coffee strong would stay again
