The Talbot is second to none. Friendly, efficient staff, outstanding service all round, and to top it all, a top class standard of food. Prepare to be pampered! Try The Talbot once, and you"ll want to go back. We try to plan, at least 3 visits a year. Surprisingly, we"re only about 25 minutes away. We"d gladly travel 10 times...

Oundle is a lovely place, and the Talbot lives up to the rest of the town. Excellent service, good food and ultra comfortable and clean room. If we are anywhere near, we will go again. Already recommended to friends.

The whole town and the hotel is beautiful and historical. The services of the hotel is a kind of slow especially when serving the breakfast but it should the way of their leisure attitude. For me it is acceptable but not my husband.

Friendly staff, good facilities, rooms were fine. Dinner service was not the best but acceptable. Breakfast was great. Overall stay was fine but BEWARE of hidden charges if you want a room which caters for children.

Fantastic setting, great location. Very comfortable room. Breakfast service disappointing but food quality superb. On arrival at breakfast there were no clean tables and we were not seated or asked whether we wanted tea or coffee and I after a 15 min wait I had to get up and ask for menus and drinks which was annoying.

We thought this was excellent value for money and a lovely old hotel with lots of charm. Friendly staff and good location in Oundle , we stayed in winter and it was quiet but possibly rooms overlooking the courtyard might be noisy in the summer.
