Just stayed at the Taunton house hotel. Would recommend. Lovely hotel.. convenient for restaurants and if you like very noisy there is a Witherspoons in the town centre. Eat at bill's seems very popular always looked busy at night. Had a meal there was ok. Would definitely recommend the Taunton house hotel lovely and clean. Good breakfast. Beautiful building!!!

We stayed here for one night. When we arrived, we couldn't find anyone to check in and eventually found someone in the kitchen who didn't seem completely up to speed with the check in procedure. There was a bar which was OK, nothing special. The room was OK, but a bit tired with rather old floral carpet and tired furniture....

Upon arrival found the bed broken. Breakfast there wasn't any space available to sit down so having to wait, whilst waiting asked if it was possible for a cup of coffee to be told no as cups were on the tables. Very poor service. At the end of our stay asked if everything was satisfactory, we said no but the...

We were made welcome by the friendly and efficient reception staff and shown to an upgraded room, which was extremely comfortable. The comprehensive breakfast was served with efficiency and was very tasty; the waiting staff positively acceded to our request for a variation to the set breakfast. Despite poor Wi-Fi performance in our room, I would certainly recommend this hotel...

My friend found this hotel for an overnight stay in Taunton. Recently refurbished, tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. Our twin room had all the facilities you'd expect and very comfy beds with quality bedlinen. Relaxing bar area (which unfortunately we didn't have time to use) and lovely breakfast. Excellent position close to main shopping centre and bars/restaurants. Really enjoyed our...

My first time in Taunton and a pleasant stay at the Taunton House Hotel. Well-appointed large bedroom with a comfortable bed. Good breakfast with yoghurt and muesli available and also a fry-up with choice of eggs, etc. Delicious. Good central location too.

Clean well looked after hotel, average breakfast, average price. However the staff weren't very welcoming and gave the impression that our stay in the hotel was an inconvenience to them. Wouldn't recommend as a getaway but would be okay if you were in the area and needed a place to stay for the night!

This hotel is walking distance to most in Taunton. The room was okay, the bed was comfortable. I love the English breakfast every morning, it was very good. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was very quiet. I would stay here again if visiting Taunton again.
