Which? reveals Bridgwater motorway services are worst in the UK

WHICH? has revealed the best and worst motorway services in the UK – and one Somerset stop has been ranked the worst in the UK.

Bridgwater services, junction 24 on the M5 motorway, has been named the worst rest stop in the country, while Gloucester (junction 11A-12) has come out top.

Bridgwater earned just one out of five stars, with customers describing it as “dirty, depressing and unsafe”.

A spokesperson for Which? said the services had a customer score of just 32 per cent.

“Don’t stop at Bridgwater,” they said.

“Even if you’re desperate for the toilet.

“Not only is it terrible, but by the time you’ve left the M5, navigated two roundabouts, found a space in the cramped split-level car park and contended with the confusing layout and crowds inside, you may as well have driven the extra 12 miles to either Sedgemoor (52%) or Taunton Dean (57%) services.

“Bridgwater earned one star in every category of our survey, including ease of social distancing and cleanliness, with recent visitors describing it as ‘dirty’, ‘depressing’ and ‘unsafe’, and others complaining of a urine smell and toilet paper strewn on the floor.

“Another simply said it ‘should be demolished’.

“There’s bad and then there’s Bridgwater.”
