Love this place. As a member have stayed multiple times.

Just close enough to London to warrant a 1/2 night stay, but far enough to feel truly away from the city life.

Great food, great facilities, gorgeous country surroundings. Staff exceptional. A few different places to eat, drink & relax.

Various fitness classes on offer - would recommend booking in advance.

Pools, gym and spa all 5 star.

This was our first visit to Babington with children. We stayed for 2 nights in Stable Block accommodation which is all that is available if you're travelling as a family. And it's all you need. Each unit is like a small barn conversion with the front door opening onto a living area with TV and discreetly hidden kitchen appliances. A short hall leads to the kids bunk beds with separate wet room and WC. Upstairs is the master suite with very large bed and bathroom with standalone bath and large head shower and WC. The Stable Blocks are directly opposite the swimming pools which, unlike many competing country hotels, is open to children in the morning and afternoon. What we'd forgotten about Babington was the quality of the staff. So a shout out to Fish and Marco who couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating as well as Christian the barman. It's the little things that make a difference, such as Marco bumping into our young daughter the next morning and remembering her name and stopping to talk with her. So great accommodation, facilities, staff and service. And of course the food and drink at any Soho House property is always first rate. A really fun, relaxing, exciting and indulgent place to spend a couple of cold, grey days in January. See you whenever we can get a room again!

Room Tip: Stable Block just for families. Rooms in the house are wonderful for couples - working fireplaces & roll top baths in some.

Have just returned from one night break at Babington House. We absolutely loved it!

When we arrived we were greeted warmly by the receptionist and they told us although our room wasnt ready (we were an hour and a half early) they were prioritising our room. They offered to park our car and take our bags to the room, perfect. We were then given a tour of the property, the main house, spa, pool, gym etc. The grounds are really well kept, as are the communal areas, the property was very clean and tidy.

We had a swim in the outdoor and indoor pools, both of which were really well heated and despite it being a cold January day, swimming outside was amazing! Just a note that we were told by the receptionist that they would provide robes at the pool, but they didnt have any. The first day the guy working at the pool said they would send for some from the spa, and he appeared with them 10 mins later which was great, but this morning when we went, it was a different lady and she didn't offer this so we had to go back to our room to get them. So if you do want to relax in your robe by the pool, take yours from your room!

When we went back to our room (attic room 10) we were so impressed, it was beautifully decorated, there was an old style radio playing background music and there was every amenity you could wish for! They have thought of everything, hairdryer, straighteners, hot water bottle, and every beauty product you could need for a one night stay! So dont worry about forgetting toiletries, it will be in your room I am sure!

We went to the bar for a few drinks and although we had a dinner reservation in the Orangery, we decided to cancel that and eat in the bar. The fire was roaring and there was a great atmosphere. We had also eaten at afternoon tea - which was lovely, although scones and cakes only, not sandwiches/savoury. The bar staff were great and even made me a Pornstar Martini that wasnt on the menu, but they did some serious improvising on ingredients - they are definitely mixologists!!!! I was very impressed with their skills and they were very friendly, great service!

Breakfast was lovely, you can either have the deli/continental options which I went for, it was delicious. My husband had the avocado and poached eggs on toast and it was amazing. We had a table in the corner by the window so had the most beautiful view.

Overall, we had such a relaxing time here and were so impressed with the property, staff, food, drink, amenities and special touches. If you are thinking of visiting Babington House for a relaxing treat, then do... you wont be disappointed!!!!

Reception staff who think they are doing you a favour by letting you stay.
On check in they were so arrogant, did no keep us updated on when room would be ready. Suppose if you pay peanuts you get monkeys.

No one to help with bags at all. Manager very pushy asking was I ok several times when waiting on table being cleaned.

Place is a rip off for drinks, even trying to charge you for drinks included in the wedding package. Add things to your bill you didn’t order. Make sure check your bill.

Champagne toast was actually the worst prosseco I’ve ever drank.

Don’t get this place at all and the jumped up no body’s who run it. Place is crumbling apart and it’s the worst “upmarket” establishment I’ve ever had the misplaced luck to be in. Would definitely never venture back.

As sadly we won’t be returning. Maybe I should have done more research but it just wasn’t what we expected. We stayed for 3 nights over a bank holiday weekend and as we arrived I was struck by 2 things: a beautiful building basking in a lovely evening sunshine and secondly, children absolutely everywhere. Now I have nothing against children in hotels, but working with 500 of them each day, I didn’t expect a 3 day break that cost us in excess of £2000 to include children running around....everywhere. Luckily we arrived with lots of walking gear to explore the stunning local countryside so we got out a lot but the garden and pool area were more like a summer camp than a luxury retreat. Our room was large with a mezzanine, but it was a lot more shabby than chic, and very very hot. The gym was great and also provided a great view of people walking down to the spa in wellies - honestly- which was very odd as the whole grounds are immaculate and tended to with detail. This is absolutely not a ‘country hotel’. Lots of men in raspberry chinos and suede loafers. In fact, I think all the men were. There was music in the bar one night but we (and other guests) simply gave up as it seemed to be full of people who weren’t staying in the hotel. Breakfast was very nice, dinner was ok. I asked a member of staff if they would take a photo of me and my partner - it was explained that this was not allowed due to the high volumes of famous people who visit - actually none were visible, maybe due to high volume of children running around the hotel? We only wanted a photo of us, with a tree in the background. This ‘ban’ was ridiculous but also symbolic of the whole vibe. Come here for mock countryside experience and instead of enjoying the local natural beauty, sit around the (very odd) pool and who knows, you may get a glimpse of Christopher Biggins or Babs Windsor.....
