Reviews for Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons
I had wanted to visit here for many years and finally my hubby took the hint and booked it for my birthday. The setting is stunning - beautiful grounds to wander around and see where the seasonal vegetables and fruit are grown. The staff are attentive and made our day feel very special. We had the set lunch menu and it didn't disappoint! Beautiful crafted food with aromas and tastes to die for. Can't wait to return!

Stayed for 1 night and also did a private Souffle course. The Souffle course was with Mark Peregrine was amazing and the highlight of the stay. A really engaging and insightful chef who shared his years of knowledge and many anecdotes with us. A real highlight. Thank you Mark and also the staff at the Manoir who made the stay really enjoyable.

This was the most perfect birthday surprise! It is beautiful and luxurious, you are made very welcome and everyone looks after you very well. Our suite in the hotel was gorgeous, with a steam room in the bathroom. The grounds and the gardens are amazing, I never knew how many types of kale there were! Everything is home made with the produce from the garden. They grow all their own vegetables and as many fruits as possible. The food is superb, biscuits with morning coffee, cake with afternnoon tea, dinner, breakfast, and anything you would like sent to your room!

Extraordinary quality throughout. After dropping hints which fell on deaf ears for years, arranging a friendâ€™s significant birthday present was the excuse to experience Le Manoir for lunch. What a fantastic experience! The quality of service that distinguishes Le Manoir and sets it apart from other leading British hotels was obvious from the first telephone enquiry, reinforced when I called to book and continued through every point of contact. On the actual day, from the greeting at the door to leaving, every member of Le Manoir team was informed, attentive ( to just the right level) but also the attention to detail while creating a relaxed environment reinforced the experience. A quick tour of the garden (lots of quirky corners and sculptures as well as the perfectly ordered and labelled kitchen garden), followed by champagne, the tasting menu (accompanied by delicious and varied fresh rolls) and delicious sweets all added up to a long held dream turning into a perfect day. Definitely wonâ€™t leave it so long before my next visit.

The height of luxury undoubtedly the best special occasion we have experienced. Exceeded our expectations. Upgraded to suite and the dinner was exceptional. Service was of the highest order without being oppressive and the gardens even in February were highly impressive. We will return.
