Interesting old building (reputed to be haunted by Mary, Queen of Scots) modernised to a high standard. Comfortable and well equipped room, good food - imaginative dinner menu and great cooked breakfast - and pleasant staff. Only small niggle is that at breakfast time, staff do not clear the table as you go along - I'd rather eat my toast... More

Came for an overnight stay after the Guineas at Newmarket. Excellent value for a Sunday night. Quirky room in a 16th/17th Century building but well furnished, comfortable and very spacious bathroom. Very good dinner and breakfast. Good location and enjoyed a wander round the town

The Talbot has been a hotel for hundreds of years...as the sign indicates. I have stayed at The Talbot several times in the last 15 years. It has recently been remodeled and has lovely new bathrooms and a great dinning area and lounge. If you want lots of room, get the Mary Queen of Scots suite. Hotel staff is very... More

We stayed at this lovely Oundle hotel during the towns music week. We started our stay in one of the modern bedrooms, over looking the garden, which was well appointed and comfortable. Due to a problem with the shower we were moved to a suite with a four poster bed, which overlooked the noisy road. Dinner and breakfast were very... More

Stayed in Oundle because my son was playing in a cricket festival at the school. Amazing town and area which would be ideal for a short break and the hotel is very good. The food is fantastic and it has a very nice pub style bar. The hotel itself is very good too with loads of character and a lovely... More

The hotel is in a great location. The accomodation inside was very tired. Windows in the room all closed on a hot summer day and the room was incredibly hot and very stuffy on arrival. Limited choice at breakfast buffet. Inconsistent messages re cancellation policy when we made the booking. Couldnt dial even a local number using the phone in... More

I stayed for two nights in this hotel on business and due to the booking, spent one night in a double room and the second in a twin room. The double room was nicely appointed with a comfortable bed, good bathroom and also good, complimentary wifi. The second night, in the twin room, was the complete opposite with the room... More

Recently stopped here with friends whilst on a cross country cycle ride. Accommodation good without being exceptional - we were in a newer annexe which was well furnished but lacked the character of the older parts of the hotel. Wifi somewhat erratic. However staff very helpful and the breakfasts were exceptional. For the price we paid we though The Talbot... More
