“Impossibly perfect......”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

This is going to be the most difficult review I have ever written.....I travel ( a lot) and I am lucky to have stayed in some of the best hotels on the planet ( most of whom I don't review because I don't see the point) and I get to eat in some of the best restaurants. I have never been to a location where you literally get 2 Michelin star service in both the hotel and the restaurant. This hotel is simply the best I have every stayed at. The level of attention to detail is frightening, the quality of the staff and the service is outstanding. We also ate in the restaurant and had the nine course tasting menu - one of my best meals ever and a true rival to three start establishments such Royal Hospital Road

Room Tip: The dovecote is an amazing suite

"Heaven in a DreamBoat", The little girl said, she had tasted real dairy Ice cream for the first time, she had a child's vocabulary but that is all she needed. I have always remembered that word picture, I have chosen it to describe Le Manoir.
Le Manoir aux Quat' saisons has beautiful grounds, Japanese garden, croquet lawn, and lavender walks, the amazing thing is that beauty has been brought inside the Manoir with it's themed rooms, lighting and inspirational sculptures.
The staff are all genuine caring individuals they are professionals that take pride in their skills, they taught me something during my stay, they taught me that hospitality is an art.
The Restaurant is the reason for everything, formal but intimate room setting, telepathic table waiting and every dish is ambrosia
I am glad we chose to stay here, the experience has given me a wonderful memory that will last a lifetime and when I do remember Le Manoir aux Quat saisons I will think.......

My wife and I have just celebrated our Pearl Wedding Anniversary in the most beautiful hotel and restaurant we have ever experienced. The staff were absolutely superb, and as you would expect the food was just out of this world. Whilst it is far from cheap to stay there it is well worth saving for to enjoy such a fantastic place. We will definitely be returning at some time in the future.

From the moment we parked our car until the time of our departure we experienced the best service, enjoyed the most fantastic cuisine and relaxed in extreme comfort. Every attention is given by the team at Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons to ensure a guest's comfort. We stayed for just one night, to celebrate our wedding anniversary, how I wish we had booked for longer. Set in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside and near to many places of interest I can highly recommend this fantastic hotel.

We went for my wife's 50th birthday. To keep it short it's all you expect, great room, service and food. One point - if you pay so much why do they charge you extra for a hot breakfast - it's mean and is a petty add on and obviously sticks in your head. Please remove it Raymond.

The title says it all, my wife and I are lucky to have eaten in some of the best restaurants in the old but this tops them, and the hotel is sublime. We stayed I the amethyst room and it was just pectin.

Lunch at Le Manoir, a superb occasion to celebrate Spring but the weather let us down. Thankfully, and predictably, Le Manoir didn't, the staff, setting and food are all faultless, peerless. Such a beautiful setting, always a pleasure to wile away a day or two with Le Manoir.
