Breakfast was excellent with a good selection and I checked out very satisfied with my stay....

The buildings speak for themselves. The common areas & the restaurant are lovely. The bar has 2 large wood burning fireplaces, quite enjoyable to sit by when you sip your gin cocktail. The rooms I stayed in were a bit dated and could use a bit of sprucing up. The bed wasn't very comfortable either. The staff definitely were super...

We were most impressed with this historic hotel in the centre of a very quaint market town. Service was first class from reception on arrival to service. Gail on reception and Matt in the bar were both very helpful.

Winchester, United Kingdom
Reviewed 18 March 2017

The hotel is very pretty in a charming location. The room was excellent; clean and quiet with a very comfortable bed. The staff were very good. The breakfast, unfortunately, was awful. Soggy croissants, truly vile orange juice from concentrate, and British Rail level coffee. A shame, such a simple thing to get right. Otherwise the hotel is excellent.

We couldn't fault it. Very generously sized room, super big bed, good bathroom, big towels. Excellent breakfast. Very helpful staff. Considering what we paid, £99 for 2 nights, it offered superb value.

The bedhead. Sounds strange but it was a huge dark brown padded monstrosity that was covered something that is made to look like leather but clearly wasn't. It may have been upholstered recently but it emitted a truly horrendous smell of plastic and chemicals which made for a very difficult nights sleep. The room was overly hot which meant having...

We needed a place for an overnight visit in Oundle - The Talbot was mentioned, we booked and were not disappointed in any way. If we have to return, we'll be booking there again. - and the local G&S Company put on a highly entertaining show into the bargain!
