Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons hotel

Church Road, Great Milton, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX44 7PD

Situated in the picturesque Oxfordshire village of Great Milton, Belmond Le Manoir is one of the country’s most intimate and original hotels. One of the UK’s most celebrated chefs, Raymond Blanc’s many successes have culminated in the dreamlike Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. The hotel has 32 individually designed guest rooms and suites, drawing inspiration from Raymond Blanc’s travels to delight all of the senses. Belmond Le Manoir is proudly the first Michelin starred kitchen in the UK to have its own cookery school, remaining the best centre of culinary knowledge.

Boasting some of the finest gardens in Oxfordshire, the outdoor spaces at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons add another dimension to your culinary adventure. Surrounded by lawns, flower borders and orchards, the luxury hotel enjoys an idyllic, typically English setting.

Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons also has a Restaurant:

Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons is part of the following Travel Ideas:

Top ten UK hotels and Inns with cookery classes by Adrian Mourby

"The best-known hotel cookery school in Britain has been running at Le Manoir since 1991. The Raymond Blanc Cookery School offers the rare opportunity to learn and practice in the kitchens of a two Michelin-starred restaurant. Under the guidance of head tutor Mark Peregrine - who was working in the kitchen with M Blanc when he won his first Michelin star nearly 30 years ago - students are given plenty of hands-on opportunities to develop their skills on courses such as Kitchen Secrets, Sauces for Courses, Wine & Dine, and Artisanal Bread Making. Some courses are for those with a lot of experience under their culinary belt, but there is also a Learn to Cook in One Day for beginners, a Garden to Plate course (using the 90 vegetables and 70 herbs in Le Manoir’s garden), and Blanc Vite, which Raymond Blanc developed to teach students how to create fast, simple, and delicious dinner parties. Courses don’t have to be residential, but after spending a day in this foodie heaven you’re unlikely to want to go home. From £185 (half day) £365 (full day)"

Ten Fantastic Food and Drink Attractions by Dinah Hatch

"Despite Monsieur Blanc’s seriously impressive chef pedigree, his restaurant’s cookery lessons led by head tutor Mark Peregrine are known for being a lot of fun whilst at the same time making sure you know your al dente from your au gratin. Courses run over one day, two days or four days and there are even ones for the children (well, got to start them early). Book the wine and dine package for a real one-off treat."

The First Few Years of Your Relationship by Hotel by Amanda Statham

"Meeting in-laws for the first time is always daunting and mother-in-laws are particularly intimidating, so start off on the right foot by getting together on neutral ground, preferably somewhere with fantastic food, so there’s a distraction if they don’t find your jokes/job/manners/face (delete as appropriate) as good as you’d hoped. Lunch at Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons, celeb chef Raymond Blanc’s gorgeous two-Michelin star escape in Oxfordshire, is spot on. It’s suitably special (and pricey), but Monsieur Blanc has made sure that it’s not stuffy, so you’ll be able to get to know each other without worrying about which fork to use or what half the menu means. What’s more, the garden, with its lavender beds, vast veggie plot with labels for all the produce and croquet lawn, makes a great place to stroll around together/escape from interrogation post-lunch."

Top Ten Historic Hotels in the Midlands by Adrian Mourby

"Most hotels acquire history as the years go by, but Oxfordshire’s Manoir has actually made history by turning a 15th-century Chiltern manor house into one of England’s top restaurants. In 1984 the self-taught chef, Raymond Blanc opened the Manoir. Ever since it has held two Michelin stars and five AA Rosettes, a unique achievement for a hotel restaurant."

The Ten Best Honeymoon Hotels in Britain by Liz Coggins

"Set in quintessentially English gardens it’s individually designed rooms and suites range from contemporary to classical. Some have their own private terrace gardens and there’s even a suite that features a stunning bathroom with a Botticelli mural and twin bathtubs for decadent bathing. Candlelit dining in the intimate setting of the award winning restaurant is a romantic experience to savour."

Put this wonderful hotel and restaurant on your bucket list! It's an experience from the moment you walk in the door. The staff are there to anticipate your every wish. The rooms are individually decorated and have every luxury imaginable - down to a Christmas tree! The food is as good as reported - maybe better! The gardens are beautiful. The public rooms welcoming and comfortable. During the pre dinner aperitif we were entertained by a magician - who performed tricks that left our mouths open! It's a must stay for all food and luxury lovers.

I booked this as a surprise for our 25th wedding anniversary, initially I just booked the restaurant but I was concerned that after such a wonderful meal it would be a let down to stay anywhere else so I then booked an overnight stay.
This was the best decision I have made. This is a wonderful place for any celebration, the team are amazing from the moment you arrive. The meal was outstanding, the timing of every course was perfect. We stayed in the Emily room which is incredible and we have already rebooked.

Thank you for making our anniversary so special.

We spent Christmas at Le Manoir this being a surprise retirement treat for me, arriving on Christmas Eve and departing on Boxing day. We stayed in the Mimosa room which was beautifully presented complete with it's own Christmas tree. The festive menus were exquisite and absolutely delicious and the service impeccable. Christmas Eve dinner consisted of canapes in the lounge followed by a lavish six course meal which was well paced. As each course was served the waiter gave a detailed explanation of the culinary delights before us. Christmas lunch was fantastic once again commencing with champagne and canapes and then an eight course meal. By the time our main course arrived ( course five) l was beginning to feel rather full but l'm no quitter so managed to finish all eight!! A big thankful to all the management, chefs and staff who made this occasion so very special.

We stayed for 2 nights just after new year with our 3 children, all under 12 years. I was a little worried that young children were possibly not the 'norm' at a magnificent hotel like this, and we didn't see many other children whilst we were there, but my worries were unfounded. From the moment we arrived, they were made to feel welcome, and each had a teddy on their bed, with a personalized note attached. We stayed in Provence, which had a separate lounge and dining room, the children's beds were placed between the couch and dining room table, but we still had plenty of space. We even had our own Christmas tree! The children were supplied with a box of brand new toys and beautiful books. The staff throughout our stay were faultless, unobtrusive and yet there when we needed them. Our children came to breakfast with us, there was a lovely buffet plus a la carte menu to choose from. Food was delicious. For dinner however, the hotel arranged a babysitter for us - she was really lovely, and our children liked her -the children had in-room dining about an hour before we went to the restaurant, and their food was so delicious we were tempted to have some. we then headed off to the lounge for an aperitif and some light (delicious) canapés, and had a chance to look through the menu. The first night we chose the 5 course menu with wine pairing - every single course was absolutely delicious, and the wine to match was perfect too. We were very full afterwards! the second night we chose the a la carte menu, with wine recommendations from the sommelier. Once again, the food was sublime and wine pairing perfect. The buildings and grounds are magnificent, our children loved wandering around them with us and really enjoyed looking for all the sculptures. It was overall a fantastic and relaxing stay, we will definitely be back, with all 3 kids again!

I took my wife here for her birthday and I can say it is perfect the attention to detail is incredible. Nothing is too much trouble the staff are very well trained and clearly enjoy what they do and are very proud of the hotel, the gardens and the food.
If you stay here you almost take for granted the standard of cuisine but it surpassed our idea of what a 2* Michelin would be like.
RB is building a legacy for which he should be very proud, the gardens and the new orchard will be here for future generations to enjoy!
The rooms are very tastefully decorated as are all the public rooms.
This place deserves all the praise it gets on tripadvisor and we cant wait to go back.
Probably the best place we have ever stayed at.

Before you die, you HAVE to have eaten at Le Manoir. The food is just divine, the service is personal and the whole experience is just out of this world! We dined from the 7 course tasting menu and there really are no words to explain how wonderful it was, other than my title, exquisite!

Every aspect of Le Manoir is outstanding - food, service, atmosphere and surroundings. We had the 5 course October tasting menu and every course exceeded our expectations. Dishes look beautiful, every separate part of the dish has distinctive flavours. You really can't beat it for a special occasion.

Everything here is sublime, from your welcome right through to the moment you leave you are continually treated like you matter. I eat out a lot and it is actually extremely rare to have that feeling. The food is exceptional, the setting, utterly beautiful and it is definitely something you should do at some point if you are a foodie. There are restaurants where you pay a lot of money and feel it wasn't worth it at all. Here, you feel like you had great value.

We had an instructive conducted tour of the gardens and were impressed with the dedication to natural cultivation processes and conservation. The dining was sublime and the Staff had their heart in making us feel welcome and creating a unique experience. We have to say that we could not fault it and we would certainly go again.

Took the family here to celebrate our Golden Wedding, and it could not have been better. We all (5 of us) opted for the 5-course dinner, which was exquisite. One of our party is allergic to eggs, and they went out of their way to accommodate this, providing alternative dishes where necessary, of more than comparable quality and standard. A nice touch at the end was a little addition to my wife's dessert - an edible plaque saying Happy Anniversary.
It's expensive, yes, but it's something really rather special, too, and well worth it for the experience.
We've dined here before, on rare occasions, and they remembered!

Booked to stay in one of the suites for a night with my wife for her birthday and ordered the degustation menu for dinner - it was all absolutely brilliant. I'm not a foodie but the meal was fantastic. Service is just the right balance of explaining what you're eating (if you want them to) and leaving you to enjoy it. We will be back

We visited Le Manoir for our 35th wedding anniversary and stayed on the Dining Experience and what an experience! The hotel, the staff, the service, our room, THE FOOD, everything was was delightful. We even had an anniversary card signed by Raymond Blanc waiting in our room along with a gift wrapped cookery book - such a lovely touch. It was a very special experience to celebrate our special day, thank you Team Le Manoir, you're amazing!

Wow!!! What an experience.
The hotel, the staff, the service - nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed in an "Oxford Experience" weekend for 2 nights and had on 5 course and on 7 course Chefs Special dinner, both of which were outstanding.

We also got taken for a tour of the kitchen which was very interesting and the garden are also well worth a wander round, as a lot of the produce is grown in the gardens!!

Well worth a visit for a special romantic weekend away with the other half!!!!

From the moment one arrives... the ambience created to the real reason we are there (the food!) it is sheer perfection.
Before lunch we were treated to a tour of the gardens and grounds which proved to be both informative and extremely interesting.
Luncheon was an absolute delight and I would defy anyone to find fault.
The staff are to be congratulated on their courteous, friendly, attentive nature. Nothing is too much trouble.
It is, without doubt, one of the finest dining experiences you will encounter... anywhere!

We stayed two nights to celebrate my wife's birthday and right from the start with the chap taking our luggage from the car wishing my wife a happy birthday to our departure perfection reigned. The room was excellent and the service and food was, as always, absolutely outstanding. It really is the most marvellous place to go for a special occasion. An experience to savour!


Review of Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons

Posted on by Carolyn TCustomer stayed Nov 2016

The fabulous food, the impeccable service, the rooms that are perfect down to the smallest of detail - these things are well documented and we certainly found no reason to disagree. So what else made it so memorable for us ?

Firstly, it was the generosity of spirit of the whole establishment - the standard response to any request was " of course sir " and you felt as if it was meant. Guests are addressed by name , not referred to by room number, immediately personalizing service, making you and your needs the most important thing.
The sheer beauty of everything from the minute you arrived, was quite amazing.The gardens, the sculptures, the room decorations, all had the feel of being individually selected by someone who loved and appreciated the environment. It felt like Raymond Blanc's personal mission, but one he wanted you to share and enjoy too. And we certainly did !

So yes, the food, the rooms, the staff, are all wonderful - and the rarely mentioned breakfast is absolutely fabulous too. But it is the warm heart of the Manoir that will stay with me forever. Thank you.

Lunch at Le Manoir was such a wonderful experience. My friend treated us for my 'special' birthday. It was amazing. The surroundings and the attentive service not to mention the truly beautiful food. A treat I'll always remember.

This was booked for a friends 60th birthday and it was an amazing experience, it is such a relaxing atmosphere, nothing is to much bother for anyone, from the first time I phoned and booked to use leaving the staff were so slick and professional, the food is brilliant we had the 7 course taster menu and they catered for my 'no nuts' request excellently. The hotel is furnished to high standards and each of the rooms was different. Love having the turn back service when we are at dinner and they did not disappoint us. Breakfast is fresh and laid out attractively with a great choice. They were able to accommodate our request for a birds of prey experience try it you will not be disappointed, Clive and his birds from Wheatley birds of prey along with Harvey was an experience to remember. The grounds are laid out with lots of nocks and crannies for you to find and enjoy. I just wished we could have stayed longer but we will go back again hopefully before to long.


Review of Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons

Posted on by Adrian CCustomer stayed Sep 2016

Without doubt our visit to Le Manoir to celebrate our Ruby wedding anniversary on 25th September, 2016 was the best decision we've made for a very long time.

The experience is an absolute must. From the moment that you enter the car park and a member of staff arrives at your door, unannounced, before the ignition is turned off, too the moment that you leave, you can rest assured that nothing, absolutely nothing, is too much trouble.

The service level is second to none and the staff to guest ratio is the highest that we have experienced anywhere in the world. There is the greatest level of attention paid to every aspect of your stay, and whilst there are so many staff, they are not at all intrusive and just wish to give you the best service that they can (and they succeed in that in every way).

We enjoyed a tour of the kitchens, which as you would expect were absolutely spotless despite so many staff working there. Everybody, without fail, were so accommodating and knowledgeable. We were at no time made to feel as though we were intruding or were a necessary evil - we were made welcome at each and every stage.

All of the facilities are a real pleasure. Every detail has been subject to the highest level of scrutiny, from the exterior decorations to the internal ambiance, tasteful and elegant, restful and relaxing, nothing is left to chance and the attitude of 'That will do', clearly evidenced from every aspect of our stay 'Just will not do!'

Our one regret - simply that we have not visited sooner!

Our next good decision - to return!

Stayed September 2016

Everything about this place is class. We stayed in the '' snow queen'' junior suite and it was incredible. We had the most amazing meal which was the 7 course tasting dinner with wine. Breakfast was also wonderful. I really can't emphasise how good this place is and how comfortable every member of staff makes you feel. Special mention to our sommelier Martin from Galway who was fantastic. As I say this is really special.

Posted on by Julie -Customer stayed Oct 2016

Think this was our 6th visit over the last few years and yet again they excelled.
From the walk around the beautiful gardens, service and food, it's an experience we will not forget. It's fantastic that people like ourselves that save up to go for a special treat get the same attentive service as those people that may go on a regular basis and drive there in their Rolls Royce cars or fly there in their helicopters.

The service from every member of staff was exceptionally good. Food -Wow -what can we say. Raymond, Gary and staff get the menu just right. My husband is diabetic so they went the extra mile to change some sections of the menu to accommodate him, from the canapés to the petits fours. Our 15 year old daughter just loved going to such a lovely place and to be treated like the young woman she is. Can't wait for the next time.
Stayed October 2016, travelled with family.
