Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a car park?

We offer free car parking to guests at the front of the hotel.
The post code for the Talbot is YO17 7AJ. To access the car park, drive down Yorkersgate with the hotel on your right and turn in just in front of the building. There are a small number of spaces, including an EV charging point close to the front door, and additional parking to the right as you enter the car park.

Are you dog friendly?

Your four-legged friends are very welcome to visit the Talbot, however we do have a few house rules.
Firstly, dogs are welcome in all areas excluding the hotel’s main restaurant. You are welcome to dine with your well behaved dog in the Bar or outside in our courtyard.

In regards to staying with us, we do have several rooms which we allow dogs to stay in, please phone us direct to book a dog friendly room on 01858 438300.

There is a charge of £20 for up to two dogs, per night.


Due to the age of the building we are unable to fit a lift into the hotel. We only have two ground floor rooms at the hotel which are both situated in the Annex building behind the hotel. Please do get in touch if you need to request a ground floor room/lower floor in the main hotel.

Our restaurant and bar facilities are all on the ground floor.

What time is check in and check out?

Check in time is from 3pm on the day of your arrival. You can upgrade to an early check in for £20, however, if your room is ready before 3pm you are welcome to check in early at no charge.

Check out is by 11am on the day of departure.

What time is breakfast served for residents?

Monday – Friday              07:30am – 09:00am
Saturday & Sunday         08:00am – 10:00am



The Talbot sits imposingly on the main route from York to Scarborough and is impossible to miss as you head towards to the town centre. The hotel has large grounds and sits next to the River Derwent. Close by you will find many charming independent shops and tearooms, as well as many world class attractions such as Castle Howard and Flamingo Land.
