Somerset Reports

Taunton, Somerset

Review of Taunton by D Brock on June 1st, 2013
Disappointing. No signage in the shopping area to help visitors. Tourist Information office not evident. Some shops very run down. Last, the return Park and Ride shelter had been taken over by the taxi drivers from the nearby taxi rank so we were not able to use the shelter. Probably won't return even though this is our county town. Exeter and Bath knock spots off Taunton.

Review of Taunton by Topaz Summerfield on December 2nd, 2007
Blorenge House was clearly overpriced. The 2007 Tourist Information pamphlet stated 39pppn for a single standard, the internet site stated 44, but when I phoned to confirm same I was informed it would be 48, and this WITHOUT ensuite and WITHOUT the use of the heated pool, it having become winter. Shouldn't hotels without outdoor leisure facilities REDUCE their rates after 30 September?? The toilet room had not been cleaned or vacuumed (don't ask me how I know!); the beds had noisy, lumpy springs in them, the duvet cover and curtains did not match, facilities were very basic. It was tacky. Breakfast was VERY basic. I believe that 48 was a complete rip-off, given that the pool could not be used (reduced facilities), and that bathroom facilities were shared. Despite its convenient location, I would caution prospective guests to look around for a better deal.

Review of Taunton by Fenton on April 23rd, 2007
Taunton is a lovelly town ,but the road system is terrible and the local television news programmes seem to miss the town all together. I even tried out the bus system which I found expensive and only having the park and ride at one side of the town was not very good as all the hotels seem to be the other side??
