Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Dear Elaine, Thank you so much for your 5 star review. I am delighted to see you found our facilities excellent and great to see you had the time to enjoy the full range of what we have to offer. There are some beautiful walking and running routes in the Graiguecullen area, give our proximity to the river barrow which is also such a beautiful attraction. Great to see you found the food and staff to be so good and I will enquire with our suppliers about the possibility of upgrading our TV package.

Dear Liam, Thank you for your review and great to have you back at Talbot Carlow. I am glad to see you found our team and food of such a high quality, we really do have such a wonderful team who go above and beyond for our guests. We put a lot of effort into our renovations and structure around same which have genuinely had excellent feedback. Our Rossmore Suite now opened as our residents lounge, our liberty tree for dining and our lobby bar & coffee dock have been well received. However, we fully take your comments on board and I will review with the team and discuss your feedback to see if we can step up and improve the offering even more. I look forward to seeing you back soon, it will be great to welcome you to our new offering very soon. Kind Regards, Daniel McCarthy, General Manager.

Dear Rachel, Thank you for your review and for choosing to stay at Talbot Hotel Carlow. Good to see you found your room big and as expected. Our pool temperature is gauged from our pool plant and we would actually have our pool slightly higher than some pools due to our swimming lessons, however I will notify our maintenance today to ensure everything is as it should be. I am disappointed in your food comments, we have done some super work with innovating our food of late so I know our kitchen team will be disappointed to read your review. Thank you again for your feedback. Kind Regards, Daniel McCarthy, General Manager.
