First thing I seen was...

We stayed in the Talbot for 2 nights. We were warmly greeted in the reception. Although we arrived late, the restaurant staff happily accommodated us. And although we were the last guests to leave the restaurant, we never felt rushed or in the way. Everything about the place was lovely...especially the staff. The room was spacious, clean and warm.

Stayed for three nights and can honestly say this is one of the friendliest and best staffed hotel around. Every single member of staff was polite helpful and had a smile without fail. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Special mention to Jamiul in corries bar and bistros who gave outstanding service and attention. Rooms are comfortable and spacious...
