My husband booked this hotel as a surprise for our anniversary, and our friends, who all seem to have visited the place already, have been raving about it. The place surely lived up to expectations, being a short drive into the beautiful village of Dedham with spectacular views over Dedham vale.
Staff were very welcoming, the weather was warm, even for July, and we were able to make good use of the warm swimming pool and even warmer jacuzzi! We had booked the Betjeman room right at the top of the hotel under the eaves, and the bed was placed central to the room in line with the eaves window, so we awoke to wonderful views of Constable country and Dedham church. Our bed was comfortable, the room clean and well appointed, the towels fluffy, and the shower was powerful with plenty of hot water. We were given lifts to and from Le Talbooth restaurant, and the breakfast was beautifully cooked and served. There were a couple of quirks: There was no safe in the room for valuables, the house is old, so the floor tiles in the bathroom had cracked owing to old house movement, and this being a country house hotel, there was no lift. However, we are still agile, our stay was wonderful, and I am left wondering how I can wangle a swift return!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- When Maison Talbooth opened 40 years ago, it did so with a huge amount of publicity andit certainly had the WOW factor. At that time, there were very few quality hotels in the country, hardly any en–suite bathrooms and certainly no televisions in the rooms. We have since added 3 fabulous new bedrooms, the Garden Room restaurant, a swimming pool (open all year and heated to a sizzling 30 deg) with outside hot tub, pool house and tennis court.During your stay with us, be sure to book in for a relaxing massage, facial, manicure, or range of other treatments, in our Day Spa. A highlight of your stay will be lunch or dinner at Le Talbooth restaurant, a minute away by courtesy car. ... more less
