4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Loved the hotel, the food was great, the bed was comfortable and the bath and shower worked well. The town is wonderful, lovely for a wander before or after dinner, and ideal for a walk along the river during the day. The couple of things that could be improved were the attention to detail. Most of the staff (not all,... More

We found our room luxurious and very comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful. Staff were friendly and helpful, chatting to us about the history of the building. And leading us to search out Fotheringay Castle.

My parents used to stay here in the 1970s, when I was a prisoner (sorry pupil) at Oundle School. The Talbot was a wonderful bolthole. Every Sunday, dressed in our best suits, my friends and I pitched up at the public bar and, on the basis we were awaiting our parents, managed to get in a beer or two. In... More

My husband had planned a surprise 70th birthday celebration for 20 members of our family. We all loved the hotel and had a wonderful time. The rooms were spacious and wanted for nothing. The food was excellent and we had a private room for the evening celebration. The breakfasts were brilliant and we all loved the courtyard area where we... More

We always feel quite privileged having stayed on what is now our 3rd time in this marvelous historic building. The beds are comfortable with good facilities and on the food & drink front it is excellent quality, adequate quantity and very well priced. The staff are quite thorough and approachable without being invasive.

I have stayed at this hotel several times over the last 4 years. Sadly not the best stay I have had. The rooms are nice but the restaurant staff let the whole thing down. This hotel could be really good with a bit more focus on customer service.

We held our wedding at The Talbot in June and our day ran like clockwork. The staff were very attentive to each detail of our day and the food was excellent, especially our evening hog roast. We could relax knowing that everything was in good hands and could enjoy the company of our friends and family, many of whom also... More

I never stayed here because the hotel called me on the evening of my booking, whilst I was flying south from Scotland, to cancel my room citing some intractable problem with the room itself. Alternative accommodation was offered some miles away but my meeting was in Oundle, so I declined. This hotel and their poor management then turned a difficult... More

Delightful staff and great food and drink. I would highly recommend this hotel and would also add that the location is excellent. This would be a really enjoyable weekend break with family and/or friends.

Excellent hotel and service in general, except for one who was obviously having a bad day . Breakfast was excellent and a very good choice Did not like the shower in the bath as this was no good for elderly guest.
