When planning your wedding I would highly recommend The Talbot, Oundle. They made our special day the most perfect day that we could ever wish for and more! The staff were brilliant and made us feel totally stress free from the start of planning to the day itself! The food was amazing and there was plenty of it! The organisation of the day was faultless and would highly recommend this venue! Thank you for making our day so special!

Talbot Hotel review After looking at and checking several venues for our civil partnership in March 2014 we decided on The Talbot Hotel in Oundle. We wanted a venue that had character and would be flexible and welcoming to our needs. We had two meetings with the manager, Bruno, before we made our choice of venue. We were concerned that as we were only 16 in number The Talbot may not have been appropriate for a small group and we may not have received the personal service a large party may have received. We are delighted to say that our concerns were inappropriate. From the very start of our planning (which was only 2 months earlier) we could not have ... Read more

We had our wedding in August 2013 at the Talbot hotel. The day went so well as all staff were so helpful, and went out of their way to make the day extra special. The whole thing was very reasonable on price and it was a 5 star venue. The hotel was beautiful, especially as it was summer and we was able to use the garden area. The food was michelin style in both our eyes and many guests were amazed by the food. I would highly recommend this place as a wedding venue!

We got married in October 2013 at the talbot hotel in oundle. I have to start with the staff, who honestly made our day. A very special mention to Andrew who made our day run smoothly and without a hitch. He was on hand through the whole process and on the day when timings went off slightly (as they do) he adjusted everything only quickly checking with us to make sure that it was ok to do so. As you will see, on your special day you can suddenly forget what you are supposed to be doing after the vows have been said and all the staff made sure everything happened around us and took all stress and worry out ...

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Talbot Hotel last September and were very happy with every aspect of our day. The hotel looks modern and fresh whilst still retaining it's character and style. There were lots of interesting spots for photos to be taken both inside the hotel and in the garden. I think the pathway from the front reception to the back of the hotel looked especially nice in our photos. The food was delicious - many of our guests said it was the nicest meal that they had ever had at a wedding. In particular, I loved the Eton Mess we had as the dessert. The room we used was just right for a medium ... Read more

We searched everywhere for that 'perfect' venue for our wedding and came across The Talbot whilst it was undergoing some renovation work. We loved the place when it was still under construction, it still had an amazing charm about it so we had high hopes for when the work was completed and it did not disappoint us! It is a beautiful place and is full of character. All of the staff are welcoming and could not be more helpful. We met with Bruno and he put us at ease straight away. He was able to offer guidance about every detail of wedding planning. The expertise of the staff at The Talbot meant that our wedding day in September 2013 went ... Read more

We got married at The Talbot Hotel in April 2013 and we had the most amazing day. We booked and arranged the wedding in only 8 weeks and the manager and team bent over backwards to help us organise everything in this short time frame without skimping on the detail. Despite the frantic panic the manager ensured that I was kept stress free and I felt that she had everything totally under control. And I was right as the day went without a hitch! The venue was perfect for us as it felt special but relaxed, had plenty of old world charm but with a modern finish, had beautiful rooms for our guests to stay in and was great value ... Read more

We originally loved the Talbot when we were searching for our wedding venue. It is the most stunning place, and exactly what we were looking for. The only reason we didnt originally book was due to our numbers. We were subsequently let down by another venue with 4 months to go and so approached the Talbot once more. They welcomed us back with open arms and quickly resolved our space issue by opening up another part of the hotel. In fact, The Talbot bent over backwards to accommodate everything we needed. The whole process of organising the finer details was made simple and easy and nothing was too much trouble. We were really made to feel like our day was ... Read more

We got married at the Talbot Hotel in May. The staff at this fabulous hotel were brilliant and could not do enough for us and our wedding guests. I stayed at the hotel the night before the big day and from the moment I arrived I was made to feel so welcome and the staff were as excited as I was. The food (wedding breakfast & buffet) was excellent, the wedding day was perfect and stress free with staff on hand at all times and our guests are still talking about how fantastic everything was to this day. We wish we could do it all over again!

Having being married before I wanted something small friendly and personal for my second go at married life! The Talbot was all that and more. Jonathon and I had three children who we made just as welcome as we were and anything we requested was no problem for the team to meet. We found their professionalism was spot on without being intimidating in any way. All staff were very good, clearly well trained, no matter what their age. The venue was clean and the rooms were very nice, especially the suites. The food is lovely, we have returned several times for meals and find nothing to complain about. We had several comments from our guests saying that it was one ... Read more

If you picked this hotel for your wedding you won't be disappointed. All the staff are friendly and helpful. We had a very small intimate wedding at the local registry office and then a meal back at The Talbot. Andrew the wedding co-ordinator for us was amazing, funny, relaxed and professional, he really knows his job. The Manager Bruno was great as well. We had little details that we needed the assistance of staff with and they couldn't do enough for us. I really felt that's their way and nothing to do with the fact we were getting married. At our meal the staff were friendly and not over the top. The food was fantastic, great portion sizes and great ... Read more
