I've been going to the restaurant at Oustau de Baumaniere for many years, and stayed at Le Manoir several years ago........it is a place that I love love love! This year, we rented a suite at Le Manoir de Baumaniere which was ideal for a 5 night stay. The decor is tasteful in the provencal style, and the gardens are peaceful & beautiful. What I love most is that the hotel is nestled down under the Alpilles and you really feel cut off from the world, which is what I'm looking for in a vacation. The only thing that was a bit annoying is that the housekeeping service was very weak!!! On our first day there, at the end of the day, we put our "Do NOT Disturb" sign on so we could rest, HOWEVER the housekeeper decided to come in despite this! After this, there was very minimal service. 1st night NO turn down service (please note they are a 5 star hotel), had to request the 2nd night (was average), 3rd night (bed done but curtains left open), 4th night (like 3rd), 5th night (bed done and pile of our dirty towels left in the middle of our room near the bed). We did speak to the reception at the beginning of our stay regarding the do not disturb issue & the lack of turn down service the 1st night, but we were made to feel that we were a bit difficult so we didn't mention all these other annoyances. At 640€ a night I don't think we were out of line. Anyway, housekeeping is their weakness. And I should mention bed comfort inadequate and towels are pathetic. The towels are thin and rough, and do not belong in a 5 star hotel. Their pool towels are 100 times better than the ones in the room.
We also "treated" ourselves to dinner at the Oustau restaurant 2 times during our stay. Both nights we had a great table on the terrace with a view of the hills (gorgeous!) Service warm, friendly, and exact. They were like a well oiled machine. As for the food, I enjoyed it but not more. Wine list was fantastic, and we loved our choice!!
Our other meals (lunch & dinner) were at Le Cabro d'Or, which is connected with Oustau de Baumaniere. Good food, but service extremely long. Extrememly! One night we had been there 40 minutes and we didn't even have wine or water on the table. And just to get the menu, is probably 15 minutes. Besides the housekeeping, this was truly unbearable. The staff very nice & friendly, most seem like locals from the area. The food was inventive, fresh, and a pleasure.
