This is the best hotel I have ever stayed at. Possibly the most expensive also but I couldn't care less. The experience was so phenomenal that I would happily pay it all over again. I would need to save first though! I took my husband here for his birthday. The grounds and gardens are stunning. When you arrive, the scenery takes your breath away. The service was extremely attentive and personal. We were upgraded to a suite for the special occasion which was superb. Dinner was a one of a kind experience which lasted over three hours. Our waitresses, an amazing duo, made sure that everything ran seamlessly and that we were happy. The sommelier was attentive and recommended wines that were perfectly suited to our tastes. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to Le Manoir.

Took my wife to Belmond Le Manoir to celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary and glad I did. From the moment we arrived it was sheer joy, from being shown to our room, Kiki, to eating the 7 course tasting menu accompanied by a wonderful bottle of Chablis, 2 actually. We stayed 2 night and glad we did, having time to view the extensive gardens containing an amazing variety of vegetables which are used by the kitchen. Our second evening meal was just as sumptuous as the first evening and included jacobs ladder and salt crust baked pigeon. Will definitely return.

Attended the Bastille and the Celebration of 35 years of Le Manoir aux quaint saeson. The Champagne and small plates of food I. e. Cavier, Scallops etc were continuous for hours ending with a spectacular array of deserts made by Benoit and his excellent team. Raymond was exuberant as usual mingling excitingly with the guests. The Hotel and grounds are a marvellous with the staff attending to your every need. Well worth saving up for a Special occasion

Dining here is a life must. Choose the 7 course tasting menu Take full advantage of the sommelier's guidance. Sure it's a little more expensive than others but this is an experience you'll remember for years to come. Find the time, find the money, make a reservation. You will not be anything less than in awe. Well done Monsieur Blanc and all your personnel. Tremendous.

Another amazing visit as usual. We stayed overnight, had dinner and this time included a tour of the wine cellar. Lukas the Chef Sommelier who looked after us on the wine tour was excellent. Great food, wine, accommodation and of course staff. The following morning at breakfast Raymond Blanc took the time to visit the dining room to chat to us which was very nice. Be back soon!

Been waiting to visit le manoir for years and my wife's birthday was the perfect time. Superb setting, excellent staff and food was stunning. Sure it's not cheap but this is Raymond Blanc and worth every penny. The attention to detail from being greeted when we arrived in the car park to a bag of goodies on our departure was faultless

Try hard to find any faults ! You could nitpick but then you would be missing the point. This hotel has been at the top of its game for some time & never disappoints. The service, food & accommodation are excellent. Staff are friendly & professional. Whats not to like ?

The staff was attentive without being overbearing, the food was beyond delicious, the service superb and the setting and grounds beyond compare. I went there for a cookery class and a two night stay and it was the experience of a lifetime.
