Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2014

I stayed for a 3 night break in Talbot , Carlow, in Feb 2014.
I came with my partner, as a treat, while recovering from surgery. It was the best medicine.
I honestly don't know how they can provide such a service for the economical price we paid.
It was a midweek booking, 3 nights, B&B & Evening Dinner each night in the 4th floor Liberty Restaurant. I was amazed that each night the menu was changed, The food was presented in a style the chef should be proud of.
The accommodation, was a really spacious room, clean & comfortable, with all you would expect re: Tea, Coffee , TV etc .
The staff, from the moment we checked in, to the moment we left, were outstanding in their willingness to accommodate.
Although a quiet period, mid week/mid Feb, the hotel did have live music and a quiz night to entertain the guests.
A really fun night as it turned out, not too taxing on the brain .
This hotel also had a swimming pool , sauna and steam room.
While I would compliment all the staff for their attentiveness, I would like to say a particular Thank you to Victorija, in Liberty, she had the good grace to say," I remember meeting you before", . She had remembered meeting me before, in a different hotel, & when she worked in my hometown.
Talbot Hotel , you are doing a great job, providing such service, in difficult times.
But you will do well, with the staff and service and facilities you provide.

I look forward to my return visit!

Thank you to the Talbot Hotel staff for a warm welcome and friendly and courteous service during our recent 2-night stay. Wherever we went we were greeted with a smile and given great service. Special thanks to Lisa and the team on receptions or being so helpful.
We had a lovely time. The hotel is a little bit out of the town but a pleasant walk through the park makes it a reasonable stroll. The rooms were surprisingly spacious. All in all our break was great value for money.

Thank you so much to the Talbot Hotel for a super relaxing and enjoyable night stay. From reception staff to restaurant staff and bar staff...you are all doing a fantastic job. The room was great and the food was gorgeous. The live music in the bar afterwards was very enjoyable. Have stayed here lots of times and it is definitely my favourite, highly recommended.

As a regular to The Talbot we went there in March for 3 days. This is our second visit this year so far and the standard that the staff set on our last visit we thought would never being matched let along being exceeded.
We had our little girl with us and the comfort we got knowing that the kids club kept our girl busy and there was always different activities happening.
The food excellent, complaints to the Chef!
Thanks to all the staff for looking after us and making us feel welcoming and we hope to be returning soon.

There was a college ball on the same night I stayed there, I had to ask security to move them on from outside my window which they did no hassle and the rest of the night was blissfully quiet! Very comfy beds, room was spotless.
Food in the bar was faultless, really recommend it.
Receptionist and bar staff were really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, would like pancakes but that's probably just me! Wish I'd known there was a spa there before going, it looked lovely from what I saw.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask about events or balls in the hotel to avoid noise

Stayed in the Talbot Hotel for 3 nights from March 29th this year, and what a super deal.... three night B+B and 3 evening meals all for only E238 for both of us...

All the staff are super , from Lorraine and her team on reception, who were great from the time we checked in until we left.. Connor in the bar, who is only there a short time was super efficient. and Michael the bar manager who made the Monday nite pub quiz so much fun.

The food choice for breakfast and dinner were fab, and all of the restaurant staff were so friendly and obliging.

Will DEFINITELY be going back again for more of the same .
