The Travelodge Taunton hotel is a good budget accommodation option next to the Riverside Retail Park on the outskirts of Taunton.
Rooms at the Travelodge Taunton are a mix of double and family rooms. All rooms include comfortable king-size beds, a television, a work desk, tea and coffee making facilities and an en suite bathroom with a shower. Some of the rooms are wheelchair accessible.
Unlike most other hotels, only your first 30 minutes of Wi-Fi wireless internet is free. If you need more internet you have to pay £3 for 24 hours.
The hotel is located in a retail park on the edge of Taunton, which includes a Sainsbury’s supermarket, branches of Costa Coffee and Pizza Hut and a pub (the Hankridge Arms).
It is a six-minute drive into the centre of Taunton and only two minutes to junction 25 of the M5 motorway, which makes it well suited if you’re driving. However, it is a 45-minute walk into the town centre so it is not as convenient if you don’t have a car.
Limited free parking is available at this hotel.
There are over 500 Travelodge hotels in the United Kingdom. Travelodges in Great Britain, Ireland and Spain are a separate business to the Travelodge hotels that operate in Canada and the USA (which are run by Wyndham) and the Travelodge hotel chain in Australia and New Zealand (which is part of TFE Hotels). Although all Travelodge hotels worldwide serve the same ‘quality budget’ end of the market, if you’re used to Travelodge hotels in Australia, New Zealand or North America their hotels in the UK may be a little different to what you are used to.
