We had exclusive use of the house and it was such a wonderful day and night finishing off with breakfast in the morning before our guests checked out. The food and service was fabulous (our guests loved the beef wellington!).
We used the spa on our second day and the treatments where lovely. It was the perfect end to our wedding.
I cannot recommend the venue enough, if you are looking for a venue for a small, intimate wedding then this is the place to go.
Calm, relaxed, stunning
I was able to stay in the most beautiful cottage at Talbooth which was absolutely stunning, so spacious and luxurious, really kept me calm and relaxed before the big day!
On the day of the wedding, the wedding team were so organised, I had a car to pick me up, everyone was so friendly and they made our day run so smoothly!
The venue is so picturesque and we were able to capture such amazing photos. All our guests commented on what a beautiful venue it was and our photographer was in her element.
I cannot thank the team enough for bringing our vision to life, giving us a perfect, relaxed intimate wedding!!
your staff really are second to none!!
wish we could do it all again!
I just wanted to drop you a line to say what a fabulous time we all had at the weekend, and to extend my thanks to all of the staff working that day/evening. They were all so helpful, friendly and relaxed, there when they were needed and not when they weren't.
I think they all thought it was a bit wild, but hopefully they enjoyed it too.
I wish we could do it all again!!
absolutely wonderful day
Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for yesterday - we had an absolutely wonderful day (despite the rain)...the staff were EXCELLENT and so attentive. Barney and Sarah were great and really on it all the time. Really appreciated it.
Surpassed our expectations in every way
Its a month ago since our wedding at Le Talbooth and we wanted to send you a note to thank you sincerely for one of the best days of our lives, one we will remember forever. Your venue was perfect, and surpassed our expectations in every way. Your staff were faultless all day, the food amazing throughout, with careful attention paid to every detail. The Maison hotel was a perfect setting for our evening reception, and you even arranged perfect weather for us!! :)
You and your events team did a marvellous job, a BIG thank you from Renata and I for making our day very special indeed. See you for our wedding anniversary!

most amazing time
Anyway, just wanted to thank you and the team so much for everything, we all had the most amazing time. Everyone was blown away by the beautiful rooms, the food was fantastic, and most of all the service was superb, nothing was too much trouble and everyone was so friendly.
Thanks again and hope to see you again soon.
seemingly effortless anticipatory service
We have received a number of thank notes from our friends and family who attended they have all mentioned the great hotel and team, I am sure you will be seeing some of them again in the future and you will certainly see us again.
Graciousness and professionalism
I would just like to commend the entire staff at the wedding of Rob and Emma Jarocki last Monday. There was nothing they could not handle with graciousness and professionalism. It was a sheet delight to stay with you. The hotel is beautiful and we really appreciated the attention to detail and comfort that was afforded us.
I do hope we will be able to stay at the Maison Talbooth another of these days.
Everything was perfect!
Apologies for not emailing sooner – just been manic!
Both David and I just wanted to say what a fantastic day we had – everything was perfect. Just as we wanted it. The food was wonderful as was the evening at the pool house and at the Maison – we were extremely well looked after and nothing was too much trouble. We were so lucky with the weather too – the sun stayed out all day for us – which meant we could have photographs in the grounds.
Maryanne at Maison looked after us right from the moment we arrived on the Friday afternoon through to the Sunday lunch time when we left! She was an angel and worked so hard. Her skills are exemplary!
I would like to thank you all (and your teams) for an amazing event. The planning, the food and the service were all impeccable. Myself and my guests were ALL very impressed.
Great venue for celebrations and weddings!
Hope you had a nice weekend. I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you very much for helping to organise our mini house party last week. We all had an amazing time and thought the house, food, pool, service was all excellent. And a special thanks for arranging such amazing weather too!!
I just wanted to drop you a quick note with some feedback from today's meeting, not only was Emily very helpful and friendly but the service from the whole Le Talbooth staff was one of the best we've ever received. You have an amazing team coupled with great food and we just wanted to pass on our positive experience as usually people will only comment on negative experiences! Thanks again to all the team, we are very pleased that our wedding will be in your hands!
Very special memories
I hope to be able to come and stay in the future.
Claire and I want to thank you for organising everything so beautifully. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful and it was lovely. We couldn’t have been happier... The staff, in particular, were lovely, helpful and so hard working. A lot of our guests commented on them. Many thanks.
