Where to start? Having seen a review for a "Weekend of Jazz" at the Talbot, Southport, I spotted that Andy Cooper and the Euro Top 8 were finishing the weekend off - and I HAD to go. Only being 19, this might seem strange, but he's a musical inspiration. I contacted the Talbot to see if it were possible to... More

We have just returned from the second fantastic Jazz Weekend this year at the Talbot Hotel. The first weekend 6th, 7th, and 8th February included Keith Nichol and Enricco Thomasso, 52 Skiddoo, and culminated with the fantastic Jive Aces on the Sunday night. An outstanding weekend of music. The second weekend was equally as good with Frank Brookers Happy Chappies... More

The food and entertainment was excellent, nothing was too much trouble for the very polite and friendly staff. Gilbert saved the day when my husbands bow tie snapped by lending him one of his own! Thankyou for a thoroughly... More

We visited on Saturday to attend a club dinner held in the hotel and booked a room for the night. The whole place was clean and tidy and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The dinner and breakfast were very nice and owner Gilbert made sure everyone was really well looked after. The whole stay really exceeded our expectations.

Had my birthday party at the Talbot Hotel on 4th April, 2015. Everything was brilliant. Gilbert arranged room, decoration, disco and buffet. All of which were excellent. Everyone commented on the quality and quantity of the buffet. Family and friends travelled to the party and took the opportunity of discounted room rates to stay at the Talbot. All said the... More

I needn't have worried, Gilbert and Julie looked after me, checked all the things I... More
