I stayed at the Talbot hotel with my mother and my sister last week. The hotel and the adjoining restaurant are not of 4 star quality. We ate in the restaurant the first night. Although the food was very nice the service was horrendous. We...were missing cutlery at our table and had to ask the waitresses on three separate occasions for cutlery. By the time the cutlery was delivered to our table the food needed to be reheated. We had ordered drinks at least 20 minutes before the issue with the cutlery and the drinks were not delivered either until we had to complain and ask for a supervisor. It seemed there were no allocation of servers to the different tables. There was a quite a large table the servers were paying quite a lot of attention to with 6 children who were then running around over and back past our table with no masks on and the staff really should have said something to the parents. With regards to the hotel there were stains on the mattress protector in the room. Although the lady on reception was very helpful and they changed it. The air con was not working in our room and the heat was so uncomfortable we were moved to another room. Again there were stains on the mattress protector in this room although the cleaning lady 'Anna' had left her card stating how proud she is in preparing the rooms for guests. I would expect that any mattress protectors with stains should be changed. At this stage there were so many issues I didn't have the heart to inform the reception of this again. In my mother's rooms with the air con on there was a very strong smell of sewage in the room so she had to be moved to another room. I have never stayed somewhere with so many issues. It was very disappointing. On a positive note the staff in the restaurant were apologetic and the staff on reception were very pleasant and friendly. Additionally there was a waitress called Aoife who worked during breakfast who was fantastic. The breakfast was also excellent. Although even with those positive points noted I would not recommend this hotel and would not return.More

Beautiful plush decor upstairs, we were 1st in at 6.30 on a Sat eve & at the start felt it might be too quiet for us...well soon after it filled up & was simply fabulous - the food was TOP CLASS, excellent standard- apart from...the delicious fish, the strawberry & white choc cheescake was divine, melt in the mouth ! Really quick & friendly service - if you are travelling around Mayo, make sure to stop in Belmullet for this place...beaches around here are beautifully unspoilt too - enjoy travellers !!More

We have eaten here almost every time we have visited Bellmullet. Food is great, atmosphere is relaxed with a designer boutique look. Staff are friendly, but do book as tables are in demand.

My family (2 adults and 4 kids) had breakfast here. Service was on the slow side and food was reasonable, however is was overpriced. The kids had pancakes and a glass of apple juice which were €9.10 per child. I saw the waitress pouring the...apple juice from one carton which in a shop would cost €2, but we were charged €12.80 for the 4 drinks. Very disappointing.More

Had dinner in the Barony while staying in the hotel. I’ve eaten here previously. The decor is certainly different and quirky and consistent with the rest of the hotel. The menu had a good selection of starters and mains. The difficult part was deciding on...choices!! For the starters, the mussels, chowder, goats cheese salad and the artisan breads with humus, olives and sun-dried tomatoes were all terrific. For the mains, the grilled salmon (special on the night), the Parmesan chicken, the chicken and smoked bacon tagliatelle and the seafood tagliatelle were all outstanding. The portion sizes were generous and the presentation and taste of the food were excellent. The service was efficient and the staff were pleasant and courteous. Highly recommended. This is a special place and a real treat!More
