Reviews for Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons
We stayed one night at the Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons & the experience was wonderful from start to finish. Our room was beautifully furnished & the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was also gorgeous with a large bath & seperate shower. We had 2 huge bath towels each, hand towels & flannels. The toiletries are in full-size bottles, not the usual hotel size. There was even a TV set in the wall at the end of the bath. Lots of lovely details in the room, such as pillow spray, a decanter of madeira & fresh fruit. The staff were friendly & helpful, making us feel very welcome. We ate in the restaurant & had the 7 course taster menu. It was simply wonderful - beautifully presented & delicious. We chose a wine flight to go with our food as we wanted to try different wines.The sommelier & waiting staff looked after us really well. Breakfast was excellent. This hotel is expensive, but it is value for money when celebrating a special occasion.

Visited for my wifeâ€™s birthday, booked a suite and the dining experience. Everything was just as it should be, which at these prices is a reasonable expectation. For a special occasion it would take some beating, and although obviously not cheap didnâ€™t at the time feel poor value for money. Attention to detail and the pursuit of excellence are subtly obvious everywhere and the result is just about flawless. My only gripe is that I now feel slightly cheated as suddenly there are offers in the national press and on TA offering very significant discounts which werenâ€™t available when I booked. To me discounts like this significantly devalue the brand and the experience and leave a slightly sour taste. It didnâ€™t feel poor value for money at the time but now it rather does. But if youâ€™re fortunate to able to take advantage of these deals then you are doubly lucky, you certainly wonâ€™t be disappointed.
From start to first a first class experience had been before for afternoon tea this time had lunch for our anniversary what a treat ! Relaxed atomosphere attention to detail 1st class food and staff ! go you will not be disappointed

I stayed in a lot of top hotels but this was probably one of the best. Absolutely loved it. We stayed in the L'Orangerie (garden suite) and it was awesome. Such a beautiful room. We went for the 7 course tasting menu and the wine pairing and it was heaven. The food was excellent and so was the service. The Front of House team was also amazing, great welcome and perfect check-in. the little village near by is so cute, great for an afternoon walk. I so want to go back.

Just one night at this beautiful place was enough to see how the effortless impeccable service makes this such a delight to visit. From the greeting at the gate, to all the staff knowing our name and that it was my birthday, to the bar service and restaurant service, nothing was too much trouble. We arrived on Friday afternoon and were showed to our room which was the Snow Queen. Absolutely stunning. The restaurant and taster menu with paired wine was sublime and left no room for the additional optional cheese course. Our personal wake up call with coffee and tea was a lovely touch, and a lovely stroll around the beautiful gardens finished our stay there. Ladies in heels, beware of the paving stones on the little walk to the restaurant but thatâ€™s the only thing youâ€™ll need to be aware of at this outstanding place. I canâ€™t wait to return in the summer to see the garden in bloom.
