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

We were very well looked after by reception when we arrived, the bar staff on duty who arranged a table in the restaurant, and the staff who served our meals. We met the lovely Suzie who made us feel at home and we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the Talbot. We were visiting Rutland Waters on Saturday and the... More

Although we only booked the hotel for one night for a short break, we both now wish we had booked for at least another night or two. We both thought the hotel was absolutely beautiful, and the breakfast first class. We also booked a table for an evening meal and once again were so pleased that we did; it was... More

We have visited The Talbot twice and I am sure we will be back soon. We live about an hour away so it is an ideal location for a short break. We love the hotel as it is so well run but also very friendly and the staff are always happy to help. The rooms are clean and comfortable and... More

Stopped by for a quick coffee, we sat in the courtyard which was a real suntrap on an otherwise breezy day. Really nice coffee served with a few maltesers which was a nice touch. My daughter had the hot chocolate which was beautifully presented with a pattern on the top of the froth. Good selection of cakes to accompany it... More

We stayed for 1 night, as we were meeting friends. Rooms are very clean - beds very comfortable, staff very friendly, and the atmosphere is very pleasant. We didn't eat there in the evening as our friends wanted us to try a local restaurant, so can't review the evening food, but the breakfast came up to expectations and better. Car... More

Just stayed at the Talbot for 2 nights on an Amazon Local deal. What a beautiful hotel. Recently renovated and is a good mix of historical and with modern facilities. The staff made us very welcome and our room was large, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were lovely, from a full English to Eggs Benedict to Smoked salmon with... More

Charming historical hotel in the heart of a Northamptonshire market town. A mix of modern and original features this hotel has a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere without being too posh. Bedroom was comfortable and clean with tea and coffee making facilities and bottled water replaced each day. The beds were very comfortable although the pillows were not too great. The... More

We have just come back from a one night stay at The Talbot. This is the second time I have stayed here using The £59 Amazon Deal. Last time, my daughter and I stayed. This time I paid £45 to upgrade to The Fotheringhay Suite so that we could stay as a family of 4. The room was at the... More
