My husband & I spend a few days at the Talbot Hotel recently with our two toddlers (aged 15months & 2.5 years). From the moment we were greeted at reception to the time we checked out, we had a great experience at the hotel where the staff are definitely the key to the success of this hotel. Even though there was clearly alot of functions being held in the hotel between Communions and Confirmations; the staff still have time to chat, smile & interact with our toddlers. This hotel is one of the best child friendly hotels we have stayed in where the staff welcome young children and make it their business to make them feel welcome at all times.
The food in this hotel as well is excellent; from the large selection for the breakfast buffet; to the extensive lunch menu and a mouth-watering dining experience at night time; I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is interested in tasting good cuisine. If there is something not on the menu that you would like do mention it to the Staff who are very obliging and will try to faciliate.
The Dome is conveniently located next door where our toddlers spend many a happy giggling hour interacting with other toddlers in two designated sections designed with them in mind. Look up the details of the Dome online to available of their toddler mornings & 2for1 deals.
Unfortunately my youngest son is going through a phase of being afraid of water at the moment so I didn't take him into the swimming pool but our 2.5 year old loved the pool and was asking every morning after breakfast to go to the pool :-)
I would totally recommend this hotel to anyone but especially families with children of all ages; we are planning our next return trip. (Member of Staff I would recommend is the blonde waitress in the restaurant who remembered all our details/drink orders/room number after the first night as well as the manger called Richard who we met in the restaurant & lobby who went out of his way to interact with our toddlers & to be hospitable )
