“Room for much improvement”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We did not find this venue good value for money.
The staff were generally very friendly. But the room and food were a major let down.

There was stale bread and pastries on offer for breakfast, while dinners were large but flavourless.
The door to our room would not lock and had to be replaced by staff.
There was no iron and when we asked for one the board was flimsy and had inadequate padding.
The wifi signal in our room was non-existent, so we had to stand in the hallway to use it.
It was extremely difficult to turn the shower tap off.
While the room was a great size the decor was extremely tired and worn. The TV did not work properly and we had to ask for a new remote.

Overall, it was a disappointing experience.

This was a quaint experience with it's uneven floors and wooden beamed ceilings. The room we had was clean and tidy but needed a little TLC, we gathered from the staff that renovations are taking place and it will be a nice hotel when these are completed. Breakfast was good with a wide choice. would stay here again.

I stayed last night, we were in room 8 cleanliness and decor let the building down. We had duct tape on the bath, duct tape on parts of the bathroom floor. The kettle the nearest Powerpoint meant the kettle had to be put on the floor. The ceiling had an ominous bulge in it with what looked like water damage, this had been painted over leaving a big patch. Such as shame it could be a beautiful hotel, but it needs a complete refurb very tatty

I feel sad reading the negative reviews about this lovely Hotel. We have just returned after a two night stay here and have had a lovely break. If anyone bothered to chat to the staff as we did they would discover the massive task the current owners have taken on to try and restore this beautiful building to its former glory. It still needs lots of work doing, but the people that have taken it on have said its a lifetime project and i wish them well,
If you dont like old, wonky floors, old furniture, or anything old then please dont come here, leave it to people who appriciate history.....just go to a travel lodge. But we,ll be back :)
ps the food is excellent as well !!!

I very much liked the old coaching station feel about this old period hotel with its interior wooden beams and real old world charm.
I also found its location in the centre of Stourbridge with easy access to the car park and the High Street an excellent asset and its location at the edge of the Birmingham conurbation makes it a good place from which to explore the west midland countryside.

This was once a great hotel to stay in. That however was along time ago. I booked in here primarily due to my budget. But cheap is not always the best. A lesson well enforced after this stay. It could be a great old traditional hotel yet again with a little talc, one to forget.

We stayed in the Talbot, reception no problem, staff very friendly and helpful, room good
and clean, it was over looking the high street no noise ,nice cooked breakfast , nice coffee, free wifi in fact no problems at all, may we suggest rather than drink in their bar and buy expensive American pop, go out the front entrance turn left walk about 80 yards until you get to Coventry street, pub at the top on the left called the Duke William best pub I have been in for a long time always 6 real ales, as for the bad reviews on the Talbot if you don’t want creaky floor boards uneven floors and 16 century atmosphere go stay in a face less modern hotel
