Summary

Maison Talbooth is a country house hotel looking out over the Dedham Vale. The hotel has 12 uniquely designed bedrooms. The hotel has an outdoor pool heated all year round, pool house and all weather tennis court. The Treatment Rooms is the in-house spa, providing a quiet and relaxed environment to step back, relax and indulge.

What makes a stay at Maison Talbooth unique?

The hotel is renowned for its fabulous hospitality, service and food - the highlight of any stay in Dedham is dinner (or lunch) at the award winning Le Talbooth restaurant. Set beside the river Stour, guests can dine on the terrace in the summer while the restaurant takes on a different atmosphere in the winter with a wealth of beams and log fires. The staff are keen to pass on their knowledge of the surrounding area, its a walkers paradise (no hills in Essex!) or arranging canoe or bike hire which is a great way to see the Stour Valley and Dedham Vale.

What are the rooms and facilities on offer at Maison Talbooth?

Maison Talbooth has 12 individual rooms which are all ensuite with complimentary mini bars, Sky HD in-room and free WiFi. Many rooms have fabulous views over the Vale while three of the rooms have private terraces. As mentioned all the rooms are individual in design and structure and are named after famous British poets such as Betjemen, Keats and Shakespeare.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Colchester area?

The local towns and villages offer great scope for discovering and shopping while Colchester (Britain's oldest recorded town) with its Castle and museums is just 15 minutes away. Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk is 15 minutes north, plenty of shopping and a fabulous waterfront community. The Suffolk Heritage Coast is an easy drive with towns such as Southwold, Aldeburgh and Woodbridge within easy reach. The hotel can also arrange picnics, bike and canoe hire for guests to explore at a more leisurely pace. Castle House, home to the painter Sir Alfred Munnings is in Dedham village while the whole of the are is the childhood home of John Constable.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

Guests can enjoy breakfast, light lunch and afternoon tea in the Garden Room or visit Le Talbooth for lunch or dinner. Also in Dedham, just down the road is Milsoms, a contemporary bar/brasserie. Further afield but only 20 minutes away is The Pier at Harwich serving the freshest of seafood (landed just 10 metres from the hotel). The neighbouring villages and towns all offer a good selection of cafes and pubs

Maison Talbooth also has a Spa and Venue:

Best hotels for a January Detox by Adrian Mourby

"For a healthy, active weekend in attractive rural surroundings it’s hard to beat Maison Talbooth, a converted nineteenth-century gentleman’s dwelling within easy walking distance of Dedham, one of Essex’s prettiest villages. The new outdoor swimming pool is open all year round so no matter how chilly January may prove, you can take a plunge before breakfast and see your breath rise in cold vapour on the waters in front of you. Dinner at Maison Talbooth is taken down by the River Stour at Le Talbooth, one of the best restaurants in the county, but you can enjoy healthy breakfasts and light lunches at the Maison itself in the Garden Room. In between times the hotel can help you hire cycles and canoes to explore the local area and build up an appetite. The essence of an effective detox is not just self-denial but also taking time out to live life at a quieter pace. In this respect Maison Talbooth is a perfect place to unwind and doze on a dark winter afternoon under a not-too-demanding book."

Top UK hotels to enjoy the Autumn Sun by Adrian Mourby

"Maison Talbooth sits on a bluff above the Stour river valley and enjoys the early morning sun that falls on open fields opposite and also some lovely evening sunshine at this time of year. A converted Victorian house in walking distance of lovely Dedham village, the hotel’s views stretch as far as the church of Stratford St Mary, a landscape painted on more than one occasion by John Constable. There are just twelve very spacious bedrooms at Maison Talbooth plus a delightful outdoor swimming pool that is well-protected from any Autumnal winds. Lunch and dinner is taken at Le Talbooth which is a gentle stroll away, although the hotel also runs a shuttle. Once a pair of cottages with their own quayside and lime kiln on the River Stour, Le Talbooth was turned into a first-class restaurant by Gerald Milsom. Its lawns run down to the river and are a lovely place for a pre-prandial drink during the last rays of sunshine."

Hotels for the half term to please the whole family by Dinah Hatch

"Overlooking Dedham Vale, made famous by local lad Constable, Maison Tolbooth should have every family member smiling. Just 12 impeccably designed suites make the hotel feel like your personal playground, complete with lovely garden room restaurant, heated swimming pool with a darling pool house, bubbling hot tub, tennis courts and a day spa with a wide range of treatments. There’s oodles of space for the kids to run around in and the tranquil rural setting allows for those magic moments when you shut your eyes in the sun and can hear a pin drop. Wonderful."

Ten Hotels for a Romantic Valentine's Break by Natasha Blair

"In the middle of Constable country the atmosphere of the Maison Talbooth is very much that of a private country house. Enjoy a cosy tea together in front of the open fire in the lounge. What can be more romantic than a dip in your own secluded hot tub if you are in one of the principal bedrooms or take a swim in the outdoor heated swimming pool. In the evening, cuddle together on the back seat while you are chauffeur driven to the nearby newly decorated Le Talbooth Restaurant on the banks of the River Stour for a 4-course dinner which includes a red rose for the lady. Extend the romance of the occasion by breakfasting in your room or enjoy sweeping views over Dedham Vale from the Garden Room."

Top Ten Escapes for Couples Under 25 by Amanda Statham

"This is the place to book if you want 24 hours away somewhere romantic and tranquil that won’t bankrupt you. All 12 rooms are named after poets at this country retreat and I particularly liked Shakespeare, with its sunken bath and outside garden and hot tub. However, my favourite part of the hotel was the separate pool house with heated outside pool, honesty bar, music and magazines: a little bit of LA in Essex. And dinner just down the road on the terrace at Le Talbooth overlooking the River Stour is a treat, particularly the Monday barbecue night."
