My birthday treat. My daughters surprise.
The ambiance was fabulous, the staff were attentive without being over the top. The food was so full of wonderful flavours and superb presentation.
I will definitely visit again as soon as I possibly can

Not sure I can add anything to what's been said. Everything was just perfect. Amazing room, fantastic food, lovely grounds, delicious breakfast. One teeny weeny negative is that I did find one or two of the staff a bit over the top obsequious!

Room Tip: No such thing as a bad room here!!

We booked a one night stay at Le Manoir to celebrate my husband's 50th. The visit was very pleasant but we left slightly underwhelmed by the experience. It must be difficult to live up to people's expectations but at around £1500 for one night we have had better value for money. The staff were very numerous and attentive so no complaints there at all. Yes we would go again perhaps just for dinner next time.

We stopped at Le Manoir with friends on Friday into Saturday and had a Junior suite with the 7 course taster menu. The room was first class as was the quality of the food, the presentation, and the shear professionalism of all the staff. Cannot wait to go again.
Thanks again Le Manior you did us proud.

It has been over 15 years since I last visited le Manoir and we went there full of expectation.As we left we all agreed that it had been a very good day.We had visited the now mature gardens,drank champagne on the lawn,been treated with the utmost but friendly courtesy and been cossetted BUT not one of us could remember a truly memorable dish that we had been served.
This restaurant was founded on the intensity of the flavours of its dishes but now the food is but a shadow of what it used to be-it lacks flavour and the magic ingredient of being memorable!

The wine flights were excellent including the vegetarian wine flight carefully put together for one of my guests.Sadly the house "pink"champagne tasted of cherryade and was almost that colour!

It is still a wonderful experience to go to le Manoir but I suggest that Raymond should taste more of the food that leaves his once hallowed kitchen.

ps.The specially ordered Birthday cake was the best cake we have ever eaten-thank you.

Dear gareth47

Thank you for leaving this feedback.

All of the dishes that Raymond and the chefs cook are classical Manoir dishes. They are constantly tasted and reviewed and it is such a shame that they did not match your previous experience

Your comments with regard to service and ambiance are appreciated.

We are certain you will have noticed many differences in the garden over the 15 years since your previous visit (as it continually evolves year in year out).

We do hope that this experience will not deter you from returning in the future.

We realised you have to go to Le Manoir to really understand the quality it provides as recommendations and marketing material do not do it justice.
A 25th wedding anniversary gave us the excuse and from the first minute it exceeded all expectations from:

Being met at the carpark - friendly and very helpful
An upgrade to a suite!
The initial intro to the hotel, grounds and room
Afternoon tea (are there really that many tea's in the world - very relaxing
Gardner stopping his lawnmower as we passed - nice touch
The fantastic Jade suite
The gardens
The risotto
and lots lots more

If you can just do it.

It was our first visit to Le Manoir. We stayed in the Snow Queen room which was exquiste and had everything you could possibly require. We ordered a bottle of house Champagne which was promptly delivered by room service.
The meal was superb as was the breakfast. It certainly lived upto expectations and we will return again possibly in Summer time so to appreciate the gardens in full bloom.

Dear Michele143

We all agree that Snow Queen is a magical room (which Raymond designed around the fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen). Thank you for leaving this review following your stay here.

The gardens certainly change dramatically with the seasons so hope you will return in the Summer time to see them in full bloom.
