They report that their expectations of a luxury experience were not only fully met but sometimes even surpassed. They love the hotel's rooms - the beds are very comfortable and the free snacks and drinks are much appreciated. Also, the rooms are quiet and the views of the surrounding countryside are stunning.

Superb food

The food served at Maison Talbooth's Garden Room and its sister restaurant Le Talbooth comes highly recommended. The complimentary breakfast is delicious, well-cooked and generous in quantity. Guests can choose from a wide range of items including a traditional English breakfast as well as more healthy options. Also, Le Talbooth Restaurant is only a two-minute drive via a courtesy car and occupies an enviable position beside the River Stour which provides a stunning backdrop for an amazing meal.

Negative Reviews

Le Talbooth Restaurant is closed on Sunday

A few guests didn't realise that Le Talbooth Restaurant is shut on Sunday evenings. However, guests are instead taken to Milsoms Restaurant which serves equally delicious food.
