Maison Talbooth in Dedham named as a new entry in the Hoteliers' Hotels List for 2018.
Three years ago, Sky and The Caterer set out on a mission to create the most definitive list of the UK’s greatest hotels. Hoteliers’ Hotels is compiled by the people who know best – the hoteliers themselves and some of the UK’s pre-eminent hotel experts such as Fiona Duncan from The Telegraph and senior editors of The Caterer. Maison Talbooth has joined this elite list as a new entry and the hotel team couldn't be more delighted. The hotel was also given third place in the Boutique Hotel of the Year category.
So too was Peter Hancock, CEO of Pride of Britain Hotels who replied to the hotel's tweet 'We're not allowed to have favourites but Maison Talbooth was the very first hotel to join Pride of Britain Hotels in 1982 so will always be rather special to us'.
Paul Milsom, managing director of Milsom Hotels, said this week ‘Maison Talbooth opened in 1969 to a huge fanfare and immediately set the standard in luxury hotel keeping in rural England. We were therefore delighted that 50 years later we still remain one of the country’s leading boutique hotels. Being chosen by ones fellow hoteliers, ones peer group, is high praise indeed as they really understand the level of total commitment that is required to achieve these standards consistently. Congratulations go to all our talented team led by general manager Evan Marshall and to my wife Geraldine who’s interior design work has kept the hotel at the cutting edge of the our industry’.
