“Got what we paid for”
Reviewed August 6, 2011

My family and I are just back from a three night stay at the Talbot which was quite reasonably priced for 3 nights B & B with two evening meals for two rooms as they had run out of family rooms (booked at last minute). The hotel itself could not have been more central. It's front door faces the sea with just a small but busy road in front of it, parking was not a problem with two different car parking areas to the front and to the side. The main shopping street is just around the corner and to the back of the hotel with lots of lovely bars and restaurants. The hotel lobby was lovely as were the bar and restaurant areas. We booked two nights evening meals for the adults but asked the staff if we could combine the two nights adult meals and give same to our children (hardly children at 14 and 15) which was absolutely no problem with the hotel. We also had our meals in the bar rather than the restaurant choosing anything we wished on the menu (once it was three courses of course) but one of us had the steak which I thought they would charge extra for but they did not. The food in the bar was delicious. They have a full gym and leisure centre which was more than adequate for our needs and everything was clean and comfortable. The rooms were adequate space wise but I did think (as in other reviews) that the carpets and furnishings could do with a facelift. I hate to give a negative as we really enjoyed our stay, the reception staff were lovely and overall a good experience.

Room Tip: High floor and towards the sea

Very disappointed with size of room 316 really only suitable for one person. Bathroom tiny ....Certainly not in keeping with other four star hotels we have stayed in over the years. Room very warm,.and noisy due to traffic. Carpet in lift very stained. Stair carpet worn and stairway in need of a face lift. On a positive note the food was very good and nothing was a problem for our waiter Trevor, I have special dietary requirements and this was catered for perfectly and without a fuss. We also encountered Trevor later in the bar...he has a great personality and we really enjoyed the chat with him .chatting but not neglecting his work or other customers.

We have returned to the Talbot for many years now. The staff welcome you with open arms and are always at hand to help you in anyway they can. We have had different rooms over the years all with a sea view never been disappointed and the hotel is situated in a perfectly quiet spot but only minutes from the shops. Eating at the hotel is a must the food is excellent and vaired. Great hotel will be back next year.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel recently for one night. Our room was good but we were quite shocked by the breakfast service. The waitress serving us was not interested and laid two tables before she decided to ask us if we wanted tea/coffee etc. The cooked breakfast was a buffet service and the eggs and bacon were like rubber! Worst of all the fruit was from a tin and was frankly inedible. Wouldn't rate this as a four star hotel for this reason.

The Talbot is my favourite place to stay when in Wexford. The location is perfect. You can park up and walk anywhere in the town. The staff are warm and courteous - nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in room 530 this time. It has a full length window with stunnig views of the harbour, bridge and boardwalk. I would definitely recommend it. And that great pub, The Sky and the Ground is just 3 minutes walk from the hotel.

My wife and I and two friends tayed on a seniors deal three nights B&B and three dinners €159 best value in the country,
Staff were great had a small problem in the room ,there was someone up to correct it in less then ten minutes,
The food was as good as any of the top restaurants they had a great variety to suit all tastes.
Centre of town within a few minutes walk of the hotel, plenty of old style pubs with music just around the corner.
We were there to play golf so we did not see much of the town during the day we believe there was plenty to do.
The hotel was full and the staff did a great job very polite with so many to look after.
The room small but clean. Tv a little small (not there to watch telly)
Lift a little slow (we were in no hurry)
The room we stayed in was looking out at back of the hotel so the view was not great, (so what! we were not there for the views)
I will be in the Talbot Wexford at the end of August with a group of golfers and I am looking forward to being looked after as well as the last time.
Worth every penny will be back.
