    Breakfast and bar are good. The pool and fitness are great. Close to shopping mall.

    The rooms were big, but the older carpets give a little bit a bad (ans smelly) impression.

    Asked for an Irish coffee at the bar on the Sunday evening after a day out and was told they had no cream....the next day we ordered an irish coffee...the worst I have ever had...sent it back once and it came back just the same...an irish coffee should be black and white...both ours looked like muddy water....absolutely dreadful

    Not enough bar facilities for residents when a function is being held. The Bistro ought to be separate as it can be very noisy when the bar is full and chairs from the eating area are removed by quests to be taken into the bar.

  • Older travelers

    There was not much to do. We went bowling and went to the town but not many shops.

    The double bed was very small for me and my partner. He had to sleep in the dingle bs as there was a dip in the middle of the bed that one turn and you fell into it. Mattress was very hard and uncomfortable.

    Nice Hotel. Rooms clean and well kept. Excellent food and service. Staff very efficient and helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel

    A lot of steps at the main front entrance therefore wheel chair users have to use alternative entrance.

    We had requested an early check in as we were attending a wedding and the hotel had the room ready when we arrived. The check in was quick & efficient leaving us plenty of time to get ready.

    We stayed at the talbot on sat 11th june. Really enjoyed our stay. Staff excellent, bar food very good, rooms spacious and very clean. Would stay here again.

    Hotel is a bit outside the town but not a problem as we got a taxi into town centre (10 euro for 4 people). Strong smell of smoke in hotel corridors.

  • Older travelers

    very good accomidation and room were lovely just a bit far out of town to walk.

  • Family with children

    On the 1st floor there's a bigger area for people to relax and take time out from the bar,there was 16 adults and 7 children so thanks god we had that space because there was an a guitar player there and the kids wanted to run around

    We stayed on the 1st floor and there was a weird smell in the corridors

    The staff were probably the best I've experienced in a hotel for a long time. I use hotels regularly through work and have never had a more helpful and positive staff over the two day stay.
