We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here; the hotel is well placed to visit the many historical sites and is a lovely combination of the old and the new. Maureen and Iain made us feel like friends rather than guests and the food at both breakfast and dinner is very special.

Having seen the website I eagerly anticipated visiting Maureen and Iain's 16th century Manor House hotel. I was more than delighted to find it a perfect place for a relaxing time in the French countryside with its beautiful garden or to explore the beaches and historical towns all so close. Iain is an imaginative and expert chef using local produce... More

The property and house are lovely, as are the gracious hosts Maureen and Iain. Maureen made us feel right at home, and Iain prepared two delicious dinners for us, as well as incredibly generous and tasty breakfasts. We love cats, so this was a good spot for us, although there was a little bit of cat odor in the main... More

The owners of Manoir de la Riviere are phenomenal chefs - the breakfast was a beautiful combination of baked breads, the most bountiful fruit plate I've ever seen, home-made jams...and the two dinners we ate there were the best we had all vacation. The house is charming and beautifully appointed, with lovely gardens and farms/woods surrounding. It's lovely and quiet,... More

We have stayed once before at the Manoir and were pleased to find that nothing had changed. For us we the tranquility, the lovely surroundings and the delicious food makes this a wonderful place to recharge over 2 or 3 days. We dont often return to the same place twice, but the Manoir is an exception.

We found our hosts Maureen and Ian to be very friendly and accommodating of all our requests. Ian's food and cooking is phenomenal, we wished we could take him back to our home town in South Africa to open a restaurant. With English as their home language, we found it great to be able to communicate and find out all... More

We stayed here for two nights in mid October. When we arrived it was as if they weren't expecting us, even though we had reservations for a long time before then. When we arrived the Manoir was dark and cold. I did not feel comfortable. When the place finally warmed up, Iain finally appeared and said what we would be... More

After research and planning, we determined to stay in one place for all of our 6-7 nights in Normandy. With this very central location, we drove each day less than one hour to all the must-see sights. Booking was incredibly easy, and the owners were helpful and prompt with replies and information. Upon arrival, Iain greeted us warmly, carried our... More

We arrived from Giverny having stopped on the way to purchase cheeses and cider along the cheese and cider routes. Ian showed us to our top floor room (no elevator so he helped us with our bags) which was spacious, beautifully decorated and overlooking the trees and grounds below us and in the distance. I told Ian that the pictures... More

The Manoir de la Riviere in the tiny hamlet of St Louet sur Seulles, Normandy is a gem. The 16th Century staircase creaks a welcome ! Iain, the owner, manager and chef is a charming and thoughtful host. The meals are a truly memorable – among the best we’ve eaten anywhere. We had room 3 in the rafters. A huge... More
