My wife and I had stayed had the Talbot before and very much enjoyed the stay. Although the town has minimal Voadone coverage (and I could certainly never get 3G there), I was reassured by the hotel's free wifi. Sadly this let us down. The manager and receptionists tried to organise a fix but this didn't come through for our... More

Went to a wedding reception here and it was a really nice place the food was nice and the rooms were nice to. The beds were big and so comfortable. I only had one problem with this hotel and that was it seemed badly managed! There was a private garden area which was really nice but it wasn't till we... More

Spent 2 nights here on a voucher which was excellent value. Wouldn't normally stay in a place as relatively expensive as this so we really appreciated it. Wonderful, old coaching inn with a courtyard passage through the arch. Sensitively restored a couple of years age, the whole place oozes comfort and history- from the ancient roof tiles to the staircase... More

Had a two night break here last week. Good room, helpful staff, excellent food (scrambled eggs and sausages to die for!) ... what more could one ask? And excellent value too. We did not know this area but found plenty to do in the vicinity. We would have no hesitation in returning for another short break.

My nephew and his bride booked this for their wedding, the service and the reception (afternoon and evening). Not sure about the package they had or prices etc but from a guest point of view we had a lovely day, the service was nice in a private upstairs room. Then we had some photographs in the grounds, still private and... More

Even though the hotel is nicely placed the service is poor. For example at dinner the staff start their preparation for breakfast by loudly clearing and setting the tables for the following morning. This seems to be so they can get away quickly after the last order. If you come to the restaurant at 9 the staff don't look too... More

Dear Marty0001, Thank you very much indeed for posting a review following your recent visit at the Talbot Hotel. I very much appreciate your time to explain your experience in our restaurant which I am very disappointed to hear about. Our customers should never be made to feel rushed or unwelcomed and should always take priority against any preparation work... More

Popped in for a light lunch - 20 minutes to serve the drinks - tea with dirty cups and dessert spoons because no tea spoons were clean. Asked when order would be ready - didn't know. Got up and walked out - the place felt badly managed, dirty and unwelcoming. Even the entertainment of watch a waiter spend 10 minutes... More

We attended the wedding of my niece over the bank holiday weekend and had an amazing time. The venue was fabulous, steeped in history and full of character. The actual wedding was in a building away from the main hotel so it didn't impact on other guests. Our room was fabulous - The Ashton Suite. But do mind your head... More

I was so impressed with my stay at the Talbot. The hotel is v old but with all mod- cons. The restaurant area is most impressive and the food and service both at dinner and breakfast were excellent. Parking was easy. The reception staff very helpful and knowledgable and nothing was too much trouble. I will definitely visit again.

There was a mix up with the booking my friend made for our stay but the Talbot solved the problem and gave us alternative accommodation at no additional cost. The room I stayed in, the Ashton Suite was beautiful. This is a gem of a hotel, and having the opportunity to stay in such an old and historic building was... More
