Great location for walking and sightseeing all within 10 mile radius. The Talbooth has another hotel 1 mile away which is more Bistro and buzzy at night but also have great rooms this is a much more modern hotel, great for brunch with outside courtyard to sip your coffee. The third hotel is also less than a mile away, this is chocolate box restaurant/hotel nestled by The River with superb menus and wines of the three this is the fine dining one. So i recommend you stay for three nights and try each restuarant. They will chauffeur you to and from the restauarants. London by car is only 90 minutes away, quicker if traffic light.

Room Tip: All rooms have similar outlook into the rolling countryside at Tailbooth

My husband took me here for a lazy Sunday package and it didnt let us down. We got there early so we could have a peak at most of the bedrooms and they are all lovely and have amazing en suite bathrooms. They are all very individual and I would make particular mention of the family suite... which is probably one of the best I have ever seen. We had a number of treatments as well in the spa which were all equally good and the girls they have working there are so friendly.
We had lunch and dinner in our room which was actually sent up from Le Talbooth. It was the best in service food I have ever had and it wasnt cold..... they even kept back the pudding until we were ready.

Overrall fab stay, will definately be back......

Cannot find fault anywhere,from staff, rooms, food and the ambiance of Maison Talbooth.We were made welcome also at Le Talbooth where my wife and 19 other friends and family were treated to a meal with accompanying wines and given an informative talk about the wines by William, the Maitre d",whose expertise and knowledge made our meal even more special.
My wife and I enjoyed it so much we are thinking of returning for my bithday at the end of November.

We stayed at Maison Talbooth for my partner's birthday. Booked the Shakespeare Suite which definitely has the 'wow factor'. The his and hers bathroom with rainfall shower and sunken bath as a centrepiece is pretty special. Loved the private outdoor hot tub, although being on the ground floor there is no view of Dedham Vale. You have to choose between the hot tub and a larger room or smaller room on a higher floor with a view. Had a peek at a few other rooms and they all looked amazing. Arrived 3 hours before official check-in and our room was ready and waiting (called ahead to warn them)... especially liked the added touches of soft jazz music playing the room.. immediate relaxation. Pool and jacuzzi in the pool house were virtually empty and even though the day was a bit cloudy with a few spots of rain we could still enjoy it. Dinner at Le Talbooth was oustanding. Have experienced many London restaurants and this certainly comes up to scratch. Great wine list with reasonably priced half bottles of wine and champagne if you just want a few glasses. Delicious food and brilliant service. Would highly recomend the Colchester crab ravioli. Sublime! Don't even get me started on the Banoffee Souffle!! Scrumptious! A chocolate 'Happy Birthday' was piped on my boyfriend's dessert plate which he loved. The chauffuer service in the hotel's Range Rover to and from the restaurant is a nice touch. Tasty breakfast the next day which is included in the price of the room (rare these days!) Sunny day the next day and we were encouraged to use the swimming pool and jacuzzi even though we'd checked out. Didn't feel rushed to leave. It is expensive, but for a special occasion it's worth pushing the boat out. Keep track of the offers on their website to keep the cost down.

Room Tip: The roomy suites have gorgeous private hot tubs, but the smaller rooms on higher floors have the ama...
