Just returned from the best experience I have ever had at a hotel. From the minute we arrived the staff could not have been friendlier and more attentive, nothing is too much trouble at this hotel! We gratefully accepted a complimentary upgrade to the Junior Suite.... Again wow. The room was incredible, immaculately clean and luxurious with views to die for. We had dinner on both nights we stayed, every course was delicious, well presented and of highest quality. The service was fantastic from all staff. I don't have a bad word to say about this place. Well done to everybody involved and thank you for an amazing weekend!!

Went here last saturday for lunch, the starters were lovely but tiny portion size, i had goats cheese at around £7, i expected a bit more really, my daughter and i had the free range chicken main course which was superb, my husband had ox cheek main course, i tasted it and to be honest we both felt it was lacking in flavour so that was a bit of a shame.
The service was good, nice location, decor was a bit uninspiring and i would go back but not in a hurry.

We are sorry that you thought the beef dish bland, that is certainly not a comment we hear about that dish very often.

We all hope that you do return to us in the future and I would ask that you contact me personally and I will be delighted to look after your booking myself.

Great hotel from which to explore the Yorkshire Moors, located in the centre of Malton right on the main road. Lovely and recently refurbished décor and mostly friendly staff (the bar man was condescending and rude but most others were very good)).

Disappointed by the James Martin restaurant - service was good but the food was just OK....small portions and high prices and a very inflexible chef - no going off menu here! (and that assumes they have the food for the printed menu - they ran out one night!)....the food here is nothing like the TV show and am amazed James Martin would mess this up so badly!

Housekeeping was good but needs to improve - ceiling light in room was covered in thick dust!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms next to the road was this will be very noisy!

We arrived at the Talbot somewhat weary after a long day's travel only to find Expedia had dropped our reservation. The manager, Dominique, went out of his way to rearrange the fully booked rooms finding us a lovely suite. It was comfortable, clean and a delight. Service was wonderful and after freshening up we enjoyed a terrific meal in their restaurant. After a good night's sleep and a welcomed breakfast we strolled the lovely gardens and grounds. It was indeed a wonderful treat to stay at this hotel.

Upon our arrival we (two couples) were greeted in a very friendly way, invited to leave our bags at reception (we were early) and told that they would be put in our rooms when they were available. When we reached our rooms there had been no muddle and a loose jacket had been hung in the wardrobe. There were bright white bathrobes, as well as bath sheets, hand towels and face flannels. We had pre-dinner drinks in the drawing room in front of the fire when we were offered the menu and the extensive (but not too expensive) wine list. Each course for each of us, as well as wine, were all really deliciously memorable. The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was as good as the dinner. Throughout our stay the staff, from the general manager to the waiters, were all very efficient, friendly (without being over familiar) and thoroughly professional.

We chose to eat at the Talbot Hotel in Malton for Sunday lunch because my wife wanted to see if Chef James Martin’s Yorkshire puddings were as good as he makes out!
When we arrived, we were taken to the Hotel lounge and offered coffee (we were 30 minutes earlier than our booking). We leisurely perused the menu which had a choice of four starters, mains and puds all for the set price of £20 or £25 depending on how many courses you wanted.
I chose smoked haddock risotto and roast beef whilst my wife chose a crab dish and also the roast beef. We were offered a selection of warm breads but only a small amount of butter by James Martin standards. My starter was piping hot (essential) and the flavour was exceptional. My wife enthused about her starter which was beautifully decorated even down to the brown crab crisp that was propped up in the little quenelle of watercress sorbet (she thinks – didn’t read the menu properly). The roast beef dinner, was in fact served with a crisp, rather large Yorkshire pudding which could have done with a bit more gravy (they call it meat jucice’s) but was cooked in beef dripping so had a superior flavour to that of my wife’s – however I do like a bit of ‘give’ in my Yorkshire (this is the only time when a soggy bottom is required). As for the roast potatoes, my wife could definitely give the kitchen a lesson on those – they do require a crisp exterior and fluffy inside unlike those experienced on Sunday although flavour again was good. The beef was cooked extremely well and was very tender and considering the hotel had a wedding reception in another part of the hotel, and a full dining room, the friendly, attentive staff coped admirably which made our experience most enjoyable. I notice some not so good reviews on trip advisor – well get over the fact that James is the executive chef (but not necessarily in residence); consider the whole experience and the value for money. Think like a canny Yorkshireman!

Spent our anniversary weekend at the Talbot and it was an absolute delight. From the moment we walked through the door to the minute we left they could not do enough for us. Even our Choccie Lab Elena was made to feel part of the family.
I cannot recommend this Hotel highly enough. The James Martin restaurant was a perfect experience and the food was outstanding.
If you ever find yourself in Yorkshire and need a Hotel, treat yourself and stay here if only for one night. I am sure you deserve it.
