Just returned from 4 night Easter break at La Babarie, this was booked on the basis purely of Tripadvisor reviews and as usual, this wonderful community of people came up trumps!.
La Barbarie is a small, quiet, very personal hotel tucked away in the lanes of St Martins but retains an air of professionalism, courtesy and personal service that a lot of the major chain hotels seem to have lost over the years. I always say that what impresses me most about a hotel is when they play to their strengths, be as good as you can be at what you do and don't pretend you are something you are not. La Barabarie does this perfectly well, they excel at what they are good at and don't try to impress with things they can't offer well, just focus on what they are good at, mainly this relies around quality of service, and quality of product, specifically food. the restaurant is superb, food fresh, inventive and high quality and there is also ample parking ( without charge I might add!), all adding up to a high quality experience.
Of course, this hotel is not perfect, the décor was a little too 1970's for my liking and the housekeeping was not always great, The bed was not the most comfortable I have slept in and the pillows were awful!!
However, I cannot fault this hotel on its service standards or its staff, both are worthy of bigger, more expensive hotels taking a look at and learning a thing or two. One specific mention, the receptionist who checked us in on ( very early) arrival and then helped me print our boarding passes was superb, friendly, helpful and always happy
