Condé Nast Traveller Johansens-recommended Talbot Hotel is a 17th-century inn that has been fetured in The Guardian, The Independent and The Daily Telegraph. The 17th-century inn is on the Fitzwilliam Estate and is on the outskirts of Malton, five minutes’ walk from the high street shops and the train station. The 17th-century inn is 10 minutes' drive from Castle Howard -- stately home and backdrop to 1980s TV saga "Brideshead Revisited" -- and the grounds and house are open most of the year for tours (March-December).

The restaurant, originally set up by British TV chef and local boy James Martin, has two AA Rosettes. The succinct menu highlights local Yorkshire produce and "the flavours are special" according to Olive magazine.

The hotel’s landscaped gardens overlook the valley and provide farm-fresh produce for the restaurant. There's also a cosy bar for local bitter, or you can retire to the conservatory lounge for Yorkshire parkin cake and a cup of tea. Further afield, guests can go for a hike in the North York Moors National Park (10 miles away), attend the races in neighbouring York or join one of the local, world-class game shoots (a secure gun room is available on site).

Floral prints and quilted bedspreads decorate the country manor-style bedrooms, each of which is unique. Generally speaking, the higher the room type, the larger the bed. Bathrooms in the entry-level rooms have walk-in showers; upgrade for a bath tub. Most rooms are dog friendly (on request, extra charge applies) and blankets, bowls and chew treats are provided.

Other Comments
Reception staff was un-experienced, had to asked for everything ( dinner, when, where, castle ticket). The food was exceptionally good, friendly restaurant staffs and efficient. When you arrived to the reception (which is the first contact with the hotel) the registration should be prepared with all informations etc.. this did not happen.
