"Very pleasant stay"

I travelled to Wexford on business and chose to stay in one of the superior sea-view rooms. Upon arrival, the reception staff were very pleasant and professional, and although my room wasn't ready we were able to get all the formalities out of the way and they took my luggage so that I could crack on with the stuff I needed to do without having to drag my bags around. The room was huge! The view was gorgeous, and even though the main road was right outside, the room was quiet and restful. Room facilities were exactly as advertised, so I got exactly what I had paid for. I ordered room sevice breakfast twice, and on both occasions I asked for something that wasn't actually on the room service menu. Again, I got exactly what I asked for with no quibble. As an arachnaphobic, the sight of a spider renders me utterly useless. One appeared in my room, and so my only option was to call reception for help. Yes, I know, that's pretty sad! I was treated with respect and with compassion and less than 5 minutes after my call was placed, my room was intruder free and my sanity restored. I liked it here, and I will almost certainly stay again when I next visit the charming town on Wexford.

Returned to the talbot again and on arrivial we were greeted with a smile, we were given our seaview room which was again spotless and the view perfect. We spent the evening in the ballast bar where there was music and the staff again were just so pleasant. Thank you making our stay so great . Cant wait to get back . Maureen and selwyn (wilcox)
"Lovely stay but........"

Had a lovely stay down in the Talbot last week with my wife and 5 week old daughter. I had contacted the hotel prior to our arrival and the customer service team were really helpful in booking dinner, baby changing room, etc. Firstly, the food is really lovely. We had dinner in the restaurant on day one and in the bar on day too. Both were really lovely meals. The breakfast is your normal fare but again really nice. The best part of this hotel is the staff. From reception, to waiters, to the guy at the leisure centre desk, everyone was really welcoming and ready for a chat. I've stayed in far more expensive hotels and not enjoyed the atmosphere that the staff at the Talbot create. The pool, jacuzzi, steam are all spot on and worth a visit. We had my parents with us to babysit and loved the swin on both afternoons. Negatives: the shower was very unpredictable, had to be on our toes to jump when the temperature shot up. Maybe a lick of paint to modernise the room. Stayed at Whites last year and the Ferrycarrig at Christmas and I enjoyed the Talbot over these two. Be back again in October!

I stayed in the talbot with my best friend during July. From the moment we stepped in the hotel, we felt right 'at home'. We were greeted by the lovely professional ladies at reception and felt incredibly welcome. Aoife was our first point of contact and she was so accommodating in terms of making sure our needs were met with the bedroom and that we had absolutely everything we required. Bellita and Jenny were equally fantastic and helpful in providing us with all the tourist information we needed. We really had the impression that no matter what we needed, nothing was an issue or a problem. We were so impressed by the staff and felt that they genuinely cared about their customers as opposed to being sterile and just on the job and going through the motions of the daily hum drum. We really enjoyed the comfortable beds, the food, the leisure facilities. There was this lovely homely atmosphere in the hotel and staff were just ever so pleasant and cheerful. The ladies at reception really made our stay and most certainly deserve a pay rise or recognition for their efforts. I have stayed in many a hotel and lived in several countries. I can honestly say I never felt as at home as I did in this hotel. Thank you so much ladies. We will be back to you at some other point. Thanks again for a wonderful stay cation. Val and Elaine ( Cork girls)
"Expensive for an average hotel"

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here last Sunday to finish off his 30th birthday celebrations. I had heard great things about the Talbot so I was looking forward to it. I was however slightly disappointed when we arrived. There was a strange smell in the lobby and it took the lady on the desk a couple of minutes to acknowledge me even though she wasn't on a call. I had requested a room with a sea view and had to pay €10 extra. Our room was an even bigger let down. The view was unreal however that's it. The walls were marked and shabby. The furniture looked like something from a second hand shop. The wallpaper was peeling off the walls and the decor needs major revamping. Its all just thrown together nothing matches. Breakfast was nice the next morning and there's a good residents bar. Things were looking up until we were checking out and a lady at reception asked us how our stay was twice followed by a comment along the lines of "you get sick of asking guests the same thing all the time". An expensive night in a not so nice hotel. I don't think I would return.

My husband and I were on a bus tour and I got sick and had to be admitted to the hospital. Since we could not continue our tour we had to make our own arrangements to return home to America. Ruth Lehane was working that morning and helped us to make our plans for traveling to Dublin and plane reservations. We don't know what we would have done without her. We had to stay an extra 2 days and Ruth and the rest of the staff went out of their way to make our last two days in Ireland a lasting happy memory. I would recommend this hotel.

My husband and I had a Sunday overnight with dinner included. The food in the restaurant was gorgeous and the staff were very friendly. The bar on the sunday night was quiet so it was nice and relaxing. We will definitely return and would have no hesitation in recommending The Talbot for a nice break away.
