Stayed here for one night only in room18, on the top floor. A good basic hotel at a reasonable cost. It was much better than the holiday inn nr the m5. Breakfast was everything that you need to get you going for the day. I would definately use this again next time I am in Taunton.

Having read your review I am dismayed. You checked in alone, a girl later joined you. Having had several drinks at the bar you left mid afternoon with your key with which we entrusted you to take care of it to let yourself in as explained. I am shocked to learn that you put the hotel door key into some...

I had the need for a central location hotel and the Taunton House fitted the bill perfectly . A warm greeting from the receptionist , clean well appointed rooms with comfortable beds , a hearty breakfast , ample parking and not much traffic noise for a central location . I would certainly recommend .

The hotel is clean, comfortable and well staffed with good mannered employees. My room was large but my colleagues small. There is no restaurant so you have to eat out. The breakfast is okay but limited so if you want continental you've missed out. The hotel does suffer from traffic noise and the car park is small, so if you...

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...
