In a pleasant and calm setting on the fringes of Bagnoles, this hotel offers excellent facilities.The reception staff is welcoming, pleasant and speaks good English. The decor is smart without being pretentious or vulgar. The bedrooms are well appointed, spacious, and flanked by immaculate bathrooms.
We found the dinner service initially a little slow as they were busy with a large group of motor enthusiasts from Jersey in an adjoining dining room, but once our order was taken the food which materialised on the package menu was very pleasant, and Madame and the waitresses were absolutely charming.
The breakfast buffet was faultless and generous.
My husband is very absent minded and left his swimming trunks in the bathroom. I subsequently approached the hotel by e-mail upon our return home, and this morning the postman has delivered an enveloppe containing the said shorts immaculately laundered. We are immensely grateful and he is delighted as he disliked the replacement we bought in the intervening period.
I have visited many hotels in my time as as an inspector and have no qualms about recommending Manoir du Lys. We shall certaily use it again as a stop-over in the future.
