Autumn & Winter 2010 Wedding Testimonials

February 2011 – Caroline & Seamus

From the moment we started talking to the Talbot we knew that they were the venue for us!  The staff were so friendly and the place is so well looked after, clean, bright and brand new looking.  They have the most attentive staff I’ve ever seen.  The food was stunning any time we ate it there, and all our guests were raving about it and couldn’t believe that if they ordered Turkey they also got offered Salmon!  The room was beautifully decorated with candelabras and floral arrangements that I was expecting.  Anything I asked of was taken care of.  The Bridal Suite was gorgeous. Huge with a supersized bed and a fruit bowl and champagne and 2 TV’s!!  We stayed here sneekly before we booked the wedding and the staff were just as attentive to us after we booked.  There were so many touches, like the man playing the piano to entertain guests, played the wedding march as we entered the hotel.  The staff were very efficient picking up the meal and there was so much extra food offered to everyone I’m sure no one went hungry.  If I could do it all again, I’d still to it in the Talbot, I really haven’t anything negative to say.  They are the best value for money around, and with no hidden charges!!

December 2010 – Clodagh & Robert

Niamh, thank you for making our wedding so special for us.  From the first meeting with you and seeing the hotel we knew that we could rest assured that we were in the hands of experience.  As you are well aware, the weather which we had in the run up to and on the day played havoc with our wedding planning; from a snowed in wedding dress and cake to being unable to calculate how many of the wedding guests had to pull out as they were completely unable to travel due to treacherous road conditions.  Through all of these scenarios and more, you managed to put our minds at ease and keep us so calm and collected with your words of experience and friendly upbeat personality, even though you yourself were snowbound and couldn’t leave work for days!!  We were taken about and appreciated just how above and beyond the call of duty you could go to make sure everything was perfect, even suggesting that a replacement wedding cake could be made by the hotel staff if our wedding cake didn’t make it on time.  For a long time afterwards our guests were complementing us on the food, using words such as ‘delicious, fabulous and scrumptious’ and the hotel, service and staff was exceptions.  Front of house Trevor was charming and exceptionally helpful with no request too big or small for him to see to and we were reassured we were in yet more capable hands.  The pinnacle of our own experience of your hotel was when to our surprise, our dessert plates arrived to u and to all our guests with ‘Robert & Clodagh 03-12-10’’ written on them in chocolate.  Please pass on our thanks to the poor staff member(s) who must have spent so long carrying out this painstaking surprise task.  Dinner the following evening was just so delicious and a real treat to sit in the calm of your private dining room with just family.  We have been back to visit the hotel for dinner with family on a few occasions as the quality of service is always great and we hope to have many more happy occasions celebrated in style with you.  Finally, although we didn’t see you on the day itself, we suspect you were undoubtedly behind the scenes keeping everything running smoothly and thank you so very much.  You can never comprehend how much you helped us in every single way and we couldn’t have wished for a better person to deal with.

November 2010 – Lisa & Thomas

Just a quick email to say a massive thanks to yourself, Trevor and all the staff at the Talbot for a fantastic wedding day.  We have heard nothing but compliments about the hotel, the meal, the rooms and the staff from everyone who attended our wedding.  To be honest we knew we were going to have a great day on the night we had our tasting and we really couldn’t have been happier with the way everything worked out.  Trevor was basically the reason we booked the hotel initially as he was always so nice & helpful and nothing was ever too much trough and he was the one that sold us the hotel.  We called into the hotel several times before booking it just to see the function room and have a wander around and Trevor was always there to answer questions and show us around even one night when he was in the middle of a wedding.  You were fantastic also and always quick to reply to my emails and calls and did a fantastic job at setting up our sweet table and at setting out all our favours.  I’m just hoping our photographer got a good picture of it.  The waiting and bar staff were great and very fast to serve which was commented on and the reception staff were so nice and helpful.  Huge thanks has to go to the chef on the night, the meal was amazing, I don’t know how many people have said they’ve never eaten so well at a wedding and the sea bass in particular was a big hit along with the malteser cheesecake.  Very few of our guests had been to your hotel before our wedding and I know I’d always wanted to choose a venue where not many people had been before and even though I was nervous of choosing somewhere ‘different’ at the same time as I didn’t have much feedback on it I honestly couldn’t have been happier with the Talbot. We can’t thank you all enough; you all really helped make our day perfect.  Thanks again for everything.

November 2010 – Karen & Alan

Hi Niamh I just wanted to express my thank you to you and all the staff at the Talbot Hotel for making our Wedding Day amazing!  Ever one had full praise for how helpful and friendly the staff were on the day itself and also the day after.  We honestly couldn’t fault the hotel even if we tried, from the food, service or rooms we were all delighted.

October 2010 – Audrey & Sean

My wife and I recently got married in the Talbot Hotel, from the moment we made first enquiry we knew we didn’t have to look any further, the Talbot was the right place for us.  The price for our wedding package was very reasonable and we certainly felt it was worth every penny, especially with all the perks added in.  The management looked after our every need every step of the way, the wedding organisor met with us as many times as we needed, accommodating our very little whim.  The day itself passed off without a single hitch, all of the staff was as helpful, courteous and good fun too.  The food was exquisite, the service was top notch, the rooms were all fantastic and the facilities were all just great.  We had 30 or more of the bedrooms booked for our family and friends and we didn’t hear one complaint, so we would certainly have no hesitations in recommending the Talbot Hotel for any kind of function or holiday stay.
