“Totally lives up to expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

I was taken here by my daughter for a late Mother's Day treat. The date happened to coincide with the 29th anniversary of the opening for which we all received a complimentary glass of champagne. The whole experience was a delight. When you arrive you are shown to a sitting room where pre lunch/dinner drinks are served whilst you browse the menu. Once you have made your choice you are taken to your table. It goes without saying that the food was excellent but it is the service and overall ambience where this restaurant excels. The staff are all friendly and helpful especially the sommelier who assisted with the wine choice. Once we had finished lunch, we were invited to take coffee/digestives in the sitting room where we could relax following the 7 course feast. The whole experience was one of unhurried luxury And I would certainly recommend it.

Having sampled most of raymond's brasseries with our best friends, we decided to go for the Le Manoir, WOW! An absolutley incredible day from start to finish, We were greeted like royalty & served like kings,
The attention to detail was outstanding, quality of food & drink superb.The staff were truly amazing & an absolute credit to raymond, we hope he is VERY proud of them all, from the porters to the head waiter, no-one could be faulted, what was going to be a once in a life-time experience, may now become so much more.

Our grateful thanks to all concerned

Stayed the night and had dinner here. The level of service is exemplary, rooms are delightful, ours was really gorgeous. Of course the fabulous gardens to walk around are always a joy. Wonderful afternoon tea with an overwhelming choice of different teas! Then dinner.......out of this world, had the 6 course menu, it was well balanced and scrummy, a wonderful risotto which I could eat over and over again.

This place has to be one of the best places to visit, it certainly isn't cheap but the standard in all things is so high, you really are made to feel special and all that comes at a price.

Definitely consider it for a special occasion or even go to the cookery school and stay over, whatever you do, don't pass up any chance you have to visit.

Words cannot describe how good this was, don't get me wrong it's very expensive but worth even if you went for the beet root terrine alone stunning, even though it was winter time the gardens are stunning and we even got chatting to one of the gardners who showed us how they grow the micro herbs

My husband and myself stayed at Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons for our anniversary. What a shame it was only for one night and we arrived a little late due to heavy traffic because it was one of the nicest hotels that we have ever stayed at. From the moment that we arrived the service was impeccable - we were given an upgrade to the Jade Suite which was a beautiful room.
We chose from the Tasting Menu, and as vegetarians were surprised to have so much choice, there were a number of courses available on the other menus. Throughout the meal all staff addressed us by name, in fact this happened throughout our stay.
We did not have time to views the gardens but they looked stunning and we will certainly be back.

Dear Gingersheep,

We like to offer our guests a wide selection of different varieties to choose from and I'm pleased that you feel the same.

It's a shame that you didn't have time to wander through the gardens but if you were to return, you should come and visit us in the summer. The gardens are in full bloom and simply look stunning.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

This was the most fantastic present my husband has ever bought for me! I spent the day at the fun and informative Cookery School with Tutor Jason Wood who was superb and the food demonstrated and made by us wannabe Chefs was a fantastic experience! Made more special by the appearance of M Blanc at lunchtime!! We then stayed the night in the sumptuous Sandalwood Room and the many special features in the room were much admired and the complimentary decanter of Maderia much enjoyed! The 6 course dinner was just superb and the knowledge and amazing service provided by all the staff was quite exceptional! Our stay was rounded off perfectly by a fantastic breakfast n the beautiful orangery before collecting our farewell goody bag complete with card wishing us a safe journey home! It's those little touches and wonderful staff that make Le Manoir a must go to destination!! Thank you to all at Le Manoir and my wonderful husband for a birthday treat I will long remember!

Room Tip: Every room is different but all totally charming!

A last minute celebration suggested by my daughter who is in her last year at Oxford. What a brilliant idea and special treat. My husband and I stayed the night and my daughter joined us for dinner.
Dinner was superb, the service was attentive but not intrusive and the room (Amethyst) was beautiful, which incidentally is my birthstone. Either a coincidence or exceptional attention to detail.
From the moment we arrived the way in which we were greeted at the car set the tone which only got better throughout the stay.
I do hope we have the excuse to treat ourselves again very soon.
