We stayed here for four nights over half-term. The place itself is a large and sprawling French farm at a guess, though it is "just" a hotel now. Stairs are very wide and very creaky, furniture is all old in style and chintzy, but comfortable. It has apparently had some money spent on it, but could do with more -... More

From the moment the door opened and we were welcomed like old friends, Iain and Maureen let us feel as if their home was *our* home for the entire time we stayed..... which unfortunately was only two nights. We were in Room 2, which is extremely spacious, at the top of the stairs with views across the countryside at the... More

Picked this hotel from Tripadvisor. Can clearly see why it is ranked Number 1. Nothing was too much trouble for Ian and Maureen. Ian's food was excellent and even went out of his way to cook something which our very fussy kids would like. The kids now expect the food at home to be just like Ian's so when Ian... More

I found this Manoir whilst searching for somewhere to stay near to DDay memorials, and I cant say how pleased I was to arrive and see that all that had been previoulsy said was absolutely tru! We stayed for three nights in the most awful weather imaginable ( rain and wind/ gales and storms) but the comfort and hospitality of... More

There isn't enough space to rave enough about this hotel. It was pretty near perfect for us. We booked it as a base in Normandy near to Caen after 10 days in the Loire. We've stayed in a lot of hotels for business and leisure and have certainly never written a review like this before. Maureen and Iain are seasoned... More

Our expectations were high - we had been to Ian and Maureen's previous hotel in England, and we had heard great things of Le Manoir from other visitors, their website, and of course tripadvisor. I'd have to say that from arrival, things looked good - just the view exceeded our expectations. The rooms? their website doesn't do them justice. The... More

We found Manoir de la Riviere online and, bolstered by the positive reviews, made a reservation for a two night stay last month. We were not disappointed - it was a beautiful country location, a bit off the beaten track yet conveniently situated (Bayeux about 20-25 minutes, the WWII beaches another 20 minutes beyond that). We had the "Explorers" room,... More

My family of four including 2 children ages 9 and 12 recently stayed here for 3 nights. This was our base for visiting the WWII beaches, Mont St Michel, and the beautiful Normandy countryside. I found this Manor House randomly online and I really got lucky. Iain and Maureen welcomed us the minute we pulled up to the front door... More

We've done a lot of staying in this type of place in France but we absolutely loved this Hotel. In a peacful rural setting with large rooms and lots of character. What singles this place out though is the capability and attentiveness of the owners, Maureen and Iain. They could not have been more friendly or done more to make... More
