Very welcoming hotel. The owner, Gilbert, and his family and staff are second to none in the hospitality they show to all guests. My room was excellent in cleanliness and very comfortable. As I require a gluton free diet this was coped with without making me feel odd or a nuisance. I would definitely recommend the Talbot to friends and... More

We had the pleasure of being at a brilliant jazz weekend on May 2nd - 5th, at the Talbot Hotel, when the Temperance Seven were the star turn. They are still excellent musicians and true entertainers in their own right. We also visited again for another fantastic jazz weekend on the 6th - 9th June.We had a great time with... More

Just attended another amazing Jazz weekend at the Talbot. Great value, with meals and some top Jazz bands included in the package. Particularly enjoyed the Sunday night with the Temperance 7, (although there were 8 in the band, 1 extra free). Quite a lot of refurbishments going on I note, hope this not interfere with the next weekender for which... More

Went with a large group of adults with learning disabilities, third annual trip back to the Talbot Hotel. The owner, Gilbert really couldn't do enough to make sure we were happy. The hospitality shown from Gilbert and all his staff was extremely attentive and for such a specialist group with different needs than the average customer really made our weekend.... More

The owner greeted me on arrival and I experienced a genuinely warm reception. Despite being a 'budget' hotel, lacking gym/pool etc, The Talbot is possible the most genuinely welcoming hotel I've ever stayed in (inc the Al Bustan Palace, Raffles and many more worldwide). At breakfast, I overheard a group expressing the same views. This is a hotel which beats... More
