“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

I stayed in this hotel last December, and to this day it remains one of my favourite hotels. We stayed here overnight for a family party and it was truly sublime! The room was fantastically equipped! Plenty of natural light, and large mirrors (perfect for a girl like me who loves her makeup) and even an iPod docking station (which was a VERY nice touch!) the beds were huge and unbelievably comfortable, and I just can't rate this place high enough! Would definitely love to stay again!

Hi Charlotte,
Thank you for your great review, yes the beds are amazing..... so many guests ask where we got them and the duvets and pillows too.
Our business relies on word of mouth and were delighted your spreading the word.
We hope you get a chance to return soon.

Myself and my other half recently had the pleasure of staying for two nights in the Talbot Hotel - We had such a super time and were so sad when we had to check out! We stayed in one of the suites - The bath in the bedroom was fab! The decor is simply stunning throughout the hotel! It's clear to be seen that a massive amount of love and attention went into the design and the selection of fantastic furnishings! We had dinner in the The Barony Restaurant on one of the nights and the food was delicious! My favourite part of the meal was the amazing chocolate dessert which I would highly recommend! The staff were very friendly and helpful esp. the lovely Mary who looked after us so well at breakfast each morning.
The Talbot Hotel is a great base for exploring the coast and we were fortunate enough to get some nice sunny weather as we drove around and could enjoy the stunning North Mayo scenery in all its glory. We would highly recommend the Talbot hotel and hope to visit again. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Decor is fabulous and the rooms were really comfortable.Staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. Food in restaurant was very good although vegetarians beware that there is not much choice here for you. Very disappointed to see NO vegetarian option for main meal in the restaurant.(suggests to me an unimaginative chef) The receptionist even suggested some fish dishes and was very surprised to hear that vegetarians don't eat fish ??( crazy!) Also be advised that if you are a light sleeper that there is a nightclub attached to the hotel and you will hear this music until club ends,

Thank you for your review.
We thought we had a great choice for vegetarians with 3 main courses on lounge menu and 2 in the restaurant but its great to get fresh eyes on it ...because although they are written in black & white in the lounge upstairs vegetarian dishes change very often so they were not written down but offered by the waitress..who if you hadn't stopped her at the second choice was also going to offer you any of the 3 dishes from the lounge..but that is a failing on our behalf and thank you for pointing it out. I am going to rectify this and put one dish on the menu constantly and 1 as a special add the 3 from the lounge , that's 5 Main Courses available.
Forgive the receptionist we have had many pesco vegetarians, vegans and some very restrictive diets.....everyone is different...even 1 family with kids who when they come in with the mother they were vegetarians and with the father they were meat eaters...now that was a little confusing.
We are never going to get everything complete faultless but with your help we have tackled another problem where we though we were better than most places but we did not communicate this well with our customers.
My poor chef getting the blame for my mistakes.....
Your review will help me to improve how we let customers know what we are offering for vegetarians, its great to get this constructive criticism...because we were doing the hard work of making the dishes but not letting the customer know this was a major flaw.
Thank you Orla Talbot

Thank you for your great review .
I'm delighted you enjoyed the hotel and the design as that's my baby and i took some risks....the builders thought i was a little touched in the beginning but they doubted me less as we approached the end. People have been very surprised by the hotel in a nice way so that's great.
All the best,

Stayed Saturday until Sunday for my sisters hen night in a self catering apartment with 3 large bedrooms. Apartment had a huge glass window in kitchen/dining area with a beautiful view overlooking bay. Decor in apartment was gorgeous. Had such a good nights sleep as beds were so comfortable. Bathrooms even had under floor heating. Doreen even had a plate of chocolate covered strawberries ready for my sister when she arrived back from getting her hair and makeup done. Everything was so convienent with hairdressers and beauticians next door to hotel. Breakfast was so good with so much choice. The staff were so attentive and friendly. We were all in agreement we will definately stay here again. Great location for girls weekend, romatic getaway or family seaside holiday.

Thank you for your kind review, we're glad you enjoyed your stay.
Doreen told me the strawberries were a gift from one of the girls in your party so you must find out who and thank them.
Yes Belmullet is a great location with so much to offer. They call us the hidded Gem because no one knows where we are, but were thankful you found us and we hope to see you back in Belmullet in the near future.

Words can not do justice to my recent stay in the Talbot for a hen weekend. From arriving on Friday evening to our departure Sunday morning the staff couldn't do enough for us. From receptionist, barman, and restaurant staff they were all so helpful and no request was too much.

the rooms were very spacious and the beds extremely comfortable- in fact i think its been the best nights sleep I've ever had in a hotel. Everyone of the group commented on how comfortable the beds actually were!

the food for breakfast and dinner was amazing. As it was a hen weekend we were not expecting a 5 star experience for dinner that we got. the service was fantastic from Breakfast "Mary" and her extra portions of mushrooms and continuous supply of toast and Tea! to Steven's supply of sandwiches after the nightclub!

Nobody was rushing us either on Sunday morning which was a brilliant relief-as after a few too many drinks on Saturday night meant everyone could relax and ensure that they were fit to drive Sunday morning-Great relief and not many hotels make people feel as welcome and comfortable as the Talbot.

Everyone who came had a great weekend and couldn't stop praising the staff and I will definitely be recommending the Talbot to all my friends and family in the future!

In fact I'd like to get away for a total relaxation weekend with the future hubby :)
