This is a great hotel in blissful surroundings. My wife and I held our wedding reception here many years ago and have also been back several times, either for weekend stays or just for long lunches and afternoon teas. In general the rooms and room service staff are fine. The restaurant is ok but don't expect brilliant food, just good. It's a bit "up itself" in this regard, as 'sailornipper' commented. The Manoir aux quat'Saisons it is not. The lounge to the right of reception is a wonderful place to while away the afternoon. A significant issue is that, apart from the bar, this not very large lounge is the only place to sit down and consequently it can go from peaceful bliss to total overcrowding in the space of a few minutes. Somewhat of a let down for a hotel of this advertised calibre. But nevertheless, an excellent place to be and relax.
