Discover our rooms

Berat room (double room)

A tribute to caretakers René & Alida Berat who, after the reopening of Talbot House in 1931, maintained the House with great love and dedication. Together with the Talbotousians, they managed to keep the House out of the hands of the German occupiers during WWII. The Berat room is also known as The Bullet Room. During your visit, don't forget to ask about the story behind this nickname.

Blanckaert room (twin room)

An ode to Rolande Blanckaert, the driving force behind the 'Belgian Friends of Talbot House'. Thanks to her, today we can rely on a large network of volunteers and a thriving circle of friends, the Talbotousians.

General’s room (signle room))

Officers on leave were housed in this room. A small room for big men, and that was for a reason. In Talbot House everyone is equal, those who wanted to take advantage of their higher military degree were assigned the smallest room. No handouts.

Dunkirk room (quadruple room)

A room full of history that was originally called 'The British Army Liberation Room'. In May 1940, Talbot House was again ready to serve the British army during the retreat to Dunkirk, and many soldiers were housed in this room at the time.

Pettifer's Den (single room)

The residence of Arthur Pettifer, a memorable figure within Talbot House. From 1915 until his death, Pettifer was the right-hand man of the founder, Tubby, and assisted him with advice and assistance. His room is still as it was back then.

Trefusis room (quadruple room)

A room named after Jack Trefusis, a shining example of peaceful devotion. A driven man who took on the chairmanship in a stylish manner. A figure to which Talbot House owes a lot.

Vandewalle room (twin room)

A tribute to Angèle Suffys and her husband Sylvain Vandewalle, who have worked for the House enthusiastically and with a great sense of care for many years.
