I was very nervous about going so far away from home and not in self catering with my immune issues but due to breaking wrist this was not possible after checking with a few hotels in the area I was happiest after speaking with Gilbert! I needn't have worried, Gilbert and Julie looked after me, checked all the things I... More

Fabulous jazz evening at the Talbot Hotel. The food and the acts were great and we were looked after by all the excellent staff. Gilbert and Julie are the perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. Wish there had been a dance floor as the music was so good. We didn't stay overnight so can't comment on the accommodation.

My husband and myself both stayed here as part of a coach tour. The standard of the room excellent. Nothing too much trouble for the owner and staff. The food was excellent and plentiful and if something wasn't to your liking on the menu you only had to ask and they were happy to make alterations,

Once again my wife and I have had another superb Christmas Jazz weekend at the Talbot Hotel. We cannot praise Gilbert, Julie and their fabulous staff enough for the service and efficiency they show, and also the hard work they put in to making these events so special. The accommodation is very comfortable, the food is second to none, and... More

Four friends and I were fortunate to get a table for this lunch time Christmas Event, where over 70 people had paid £12 per head. Shown to our table, we had time to take in the ambiance, which was decorated in a traditional way for the festive season. We had the most delicious cream of vegetable soup served piping hot... More
