Nice clean hotel. Lovely staff. Really so helpful and pleasant. Good food particularly the brown bread. Nice pool and leisure facility. Only downside was time we were there was full of children of whom there were a lot of them unsupervised by parents and running around like lunatics day and night. This of course is not the hotels fault. Would...

We stayed here for 3 nights with my young family and husband. The leisure facilities were good we used the pool each day. However the showers in the ladies changing room were not always cleaned out with hair on the floor and empty bottles of shampoo etc left seating. Our hotel room was something else. First thing I seen was...

We stayed in the Talbot for 2 nights. We were warmly greeted in the reception. Although we arrived late, the restaurant staff happily accommodated us. And although we were the last guests to leave the restaurant, we never felt rushed or in the way. Everything about the place was lovely...especially the staff. The room was spacious, clean and warm. The...

Stayed for three nights and can honestly say this is one of the friendliest and best staffed hotel around. Every single member of staff was polite helpful and had a smile without fail. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Special mention to Jamiul in corries bar and bistros who gave outstanding service and attention. Rooms are comfortable and spacious...

I attended the Talbot on 2 weekends Feb/March for a hen party and then a wedding. Rooms were fab, food was great, reception was very helpful and professional, waiting staff were very good. It was excellent value and I would definitely use it again. The only reason I didn't give this hotel a 5 was because of the bar staff!...

Stayed one night, would loved to have stayed longer. The staff were very friendly , efficient and helpful. Check-in was pleasant and fast . The room was spotlessly clean and plenty space for 3, the beds were extremely comfortable. I requested an extra towel and tea cup, which arrived to the room within minutes. The leisure center was well equipped,...
