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.

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

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.
