For what P.I. is known for, this branch is pretty good. Its the most 'budget' we have ever stayed in and we do use P.I.'s a lot. I mean in terms is room. Bathroom is so squeezed that you have to come in then close the door to access to access bathtab. Only had one coffee even though we booked... More

We love the principal of these Premier Inns but just wish they would sort their pillows out! I do feel that their idea of soft is certainly not ours, and they squidge down so flat too. Yes I could have gone to reception and asked for replacement pillows ( I would have needed 4 SOFT pillows...)But the room we had... More

We stayed here for one night whilst travelling to visit friends in Devon. The hotel receptionist was lovely, polite and very knowledgeable. Our room was lovely. We were in the new part of the building so everything was absolutely immaculate. We asked he receptionist the best place for evening drinks and she recommended Handsome Harry's bar. We highly recommend the... More

We were on Taunton for a family party and used this hotel as a base as it was near to the M5 and a short drive to the town. A clean, welcoming hotel with excellent rooms and the option of breakfast and meals at next door Beefeater which we used for breakfast. Couldn't fault our stay.

My 2 sons and I travelled late Friday evening headed west to Exeter to visit family. Travelling during the evening we broke our journey as weary "end of the week" travellers at the Premier Inn Taunton East.

Quick and efficient check in by friendly staff. Easy to park. Room was clean, plenty of space and fine - standard I expect for premier inn. Paid for breakfast, which again was of the expected standard. Would stay here again if passing by and need a stopover

We stayed here for a couple of nights while on a fishing trip. The check in staff were really friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Couple this with the price for the room it makes it a decent place to stay. Will definitely stay here again.

We had a really enjoyable stay in the run up to Christmas, Santa even joined us for breakfast! Clean and comfortable room, quiet, very pleasant staff in the hotel. I left my purse on the reception desk and thankfully the receptionist spotted it and bought it to our room - thank you :-)

Wifi doesn't work - nightmare to connect and could barely open any web pages. The breakfast was awful I asked for a bacon toasted sandwich which seemed to really confuse every member of staff there.
