We stayed here in January when high winds and floods were battering the country. We couldn't think of a better place to be holed up for a few days.
Like many of the other reviews, we agree that it's the many small touches that make this a cut above other 5 star hotels we have stayed in and warrant the very expensive price tag.
These touches can be seen eveywhere from the decor and furnishings of the hotel (rustic, stylish and luxurious yet not bling or OTT), the attentive service, the cinema and spa, free afternoon tea and cakes, the Wellington boots for walking, the bycicles, to the fantastic breakfast in bed. The wooden trunk arrives with basically a full scale breakfast buffet inside it and is a real treat.
We stayed in one of the upstairs stable room which was a beautiful split level room consisting of a Lounge and bathroom downstairs with a bath and shower and loads of cowshed products, and a mezzanine level in the eaves with a massive bed with several cushions. Lovely decor in keeping with a luxury country house plus modern touches like sky and a DVD blue ray player in the lounge and bedroom and a retro Roberts radio.
We has dinner in the restaurant. Very nice and very reasonably priced.
We also used the cinema one evening, the pool area and the spa where my wife had 2 treatments which we absolutely loved.
The hotel was packed and there were plenty of families so seems very family friendly.
Overall, would definitely recommend babington house for a special treat. It really is a fabulous place for some rest and relaxation.
