Excellent traditional style hotel which has been recently refurbished to provide modern facilities without losing its period charm. Efficient friendly service from the staff. Very good restaurant providing a wide selection of quality food for both breakfast and dinner. Comfortable, well furnished and spacious bedroom.

Lovely room, good quality food in restaurant, attentive and friendly staff. Good location in a lovely town. Car parking limited-you'd expect this though in a central location. Wi-Fi easy to log onto and quick enough for emails & internet.

Its been a few years since I last stayed here and the improvements have been considerable. The staff were polite and efficient, and the room I stayed in was of a high standard. The full English breakfast was very good quality cooked fresh and served quickly. Looking forward to staying again soon.

lovely hotel with fantastic restaurant. Room could have been better, didn't reflect the high standard of the hotel overall. The restaurant staff were very welcoming, informative and approachable. Lovely location

One of my favourite hotels. Always friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is first class, good coffee. Very good bar selection. Clean, well apportioned, modern rooms with good facilities in an old historic building. Go visit!

A very lovely old hotel staff very helpful food at the reception was amazing as was breakfast. The room was a little disappointing could do with an update very basic for the price. Oundle is a lovely historic town we would definitely return.

I last stayed here in 1986 and it has taken all this time to be back in this location, I won't leave it so long next time, just as remembered it, lots of history in a lovely location with great food and service

I've stayed many times at the Talbot, and generally been very happy. But something was up with the breakfast service on this day: the coffee didn't come, the poached eggs were full of water (I don't know how they did that), there was no brown bread for toasting, and butter seemed like it had just been taken out of the...
