Taunton Dean

Pros: Receptionist
Cons: Move smoking area SO OTHER GUESTS ARE CONSIDERED. Redecorate all bed and bathrooms and some kind of sound proofing.
Location: only meal option was a mcdonalds or costa. not really ideal for an evening meal at 10pm.
We arrived late and the receptionist couldn't have been nicer. Would return based on her services alone. Really friendly and welcoming after a 4 hour drive. hotel room however was tired, bathroom was grubby and tiling coming of walls in places. walls are so thin you can hear every time someone else urinates either side or above you. Very unpleasant. Smokers encourages to stand outside main entrance which was a few meters from our window on ground floor so we were disturbed till ate.

Value for Money

Posted 3-Nov-2013
Pros: Even though situated close to the M5 Southbound and my room facing the motorway, I had no problem with any traffic noise and was convenient for me.
Cons: Replacement of Bath and grouting on tiles around bath to be steam cleaned.
Location: I was only here for training, so had no reason to investigate the local area.
I was attending a 3 day course in the west of Taunton and rather than drive a 160 miles round trip each day, I decided to book a room at Days Inn, Taunton Deane Services for 2 nights. Bearing in mind I had booked-up in advance, I was able to enjoy a £30 per night rate and on arrival was greeted at the Reception and given the keys to my room, which turned out to be a family room on the ground floor. The room was clean, as were the bed clothes. The bath looked like it was rusting where the taps were fitted. However as I didn't have reason to use the bath or shower this didn't affect me, nor did what looked like staining on the bottom of the bath, which I would put down to wear and tear. On the first of the two evenings the picture on the Freeview TV seemed on occasions to have a problem with the signal from the aeriel, so I just watched TV via the free Wi-Fi on my laptop. There were ample supplies of Tea/Coffee/Sugar/Sweetener available on the tray beside the electric kettle and also a good supply of towels. I travelled into Taunton to eat on the Thursday night and settled for a "McDonalds" from the Service Area on the second, which was a bit of a novelty for me, as I don't normally visit "Ronald McDonald's". It was a 7 mile drive into Taunton via the M5 and a 4 mile drive back as I was able to travel back through the side lanes and access the Service Area via the Service Barrier. All in all, I was more than happy with the stay and would happily stay there again!!

Pros: The staff were Ok but didn't seem that interested as to why we were leaving at 2 am.
Cons: The bed, the decor, the noise levels the cleanliness, the size of the tv, some of the doors in the corridor had soft closers WHY NOT ALL OF THEM!!!
Location: Go down the road to the premier inn
When we got into our room on the first night and the heater was running, it was too warm so had to turn that off and open the window, which meant we had an aircon unit rumbling away all night instead, also there was a beep that went off every 2 minutes for the whole night, the bed was so old and bouncy anytime one of us moved the other would be bounced out of bed. The second night the beep had gone, but the bed was so uncomfortable we left the hotel at 2 am as I would rather drive for 3 hours to a comfortable bed and quiet room than stay there. DO NOT STAY HERE AT ANY COST!!! There was a premier inn down the road that was only £8 more for the 2 night, I will never skimp again!

Excellence and inconvenience

Posted 7-Aug-2013
Pros: Cleanliness and staff customer service
Cons: Queuing for a long time to buy b'kfast the place was packed at 8.30 am
Location: Not my kind of place very busy service area
I did not enjoy the experience of queuing up to buy b'fast. The place was packed on Saturday morning. I prefer somewhere where the hotel provide b'fast. The car park was a nightmare on Saturday lunch time . It was a bottleneck no one moving for 1 hour until a staff member assisted so that cars could get out to join motorway. I will not use Days Inn again unfortunately not a good experience I would like to commend the staff at the hotel on Friday Saturday and Sunday especially a gentleman working at the reception plus cleaning the rooms on sat & sun. He was very helpful and polite ,he turned down a tip. He is an excellent member of staff.

Good travellers Hotel

Posted 18-Jul-2013
Pros: The welcome
Cons: None
Location: As you would expect on a motorway
Eileen on reception is a diamond, welcoming, chatty and efficient. I have stayed before and even though she must have seen thousands since my last visit she remembered my name. I was re allocated a room at the back which I had requested and find Days Inn far better than other travel lodges.
