“Enchanting hotel and restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

This hotel in the atmospheric spa town of Bagnoles de lorne near Alencon in the Orne region is lovely and an excellent value. The restaurant has a michelin star restaurant and cooking classes are offered once a month.

We thoroughlz enjozed visiting this undiscovered part of France, especially in May when the apple trees were in blossum.

We found Le Manoir du Lys via a 'coffret smartbox' -
Very nice and very welcoming service - we even received a call from reception on our way to the hotel asking whether we'd like some advice on how to best reach it by car.
Excellent dinner (part of the coffret offer), very nice buffet breakfast. We did use the indoor swimming pool which is not very big, but sufficient to be able to relax.
Only suggestion I'd have is to add a fitness center.

Th room was a little small but very well equipped. The staff were friendly, efficient and warm all of the time. The restaurant experience was amazing, great food and excellent engagement with the staff. A little pricey but a great trip and stay

What a wonderful resort. Restful, quiet and we stayed in a beautiful chalet room. The staff were excellent, the restaurant would be hard to beat and seeing deer and foxes on one of our evening walks was magic. The cooking demonstration was fabulous. Would definitely stay here again.

Quiet location, just outside of Bagnoles, easy to find. Abrupt offhand reception on arrival. Had not made dinner reservation, as requested. Comfy room but cramped layout. Electrics failed in room in morning. But dinner took nearly 3 hours for 4 courses, of which 3 were cold. Kept waiting for 30 minutes for initial drink. Despite plenty staff, service was chaotic and extremely slow. Very disappointing and ruined both the meal, which was good (when it eventually came) and the hotel stay.

Stayed overnight at Le Manoir du Lys and really enjoyed the experience. The staff were all extremely attentive, polite and friendly. The hotel is in a lovely calm location and we felt thoroughly relaxed after our brief stay. We ate in the restaurant and it was a real culinary experience. The price seemed incredibly reasonable for such a high standard of food.
We paid 100 Euros for the room, which included a 20% discount, perhaps because we booked last minute. We found the accomodation standard quite disappointing and can't imagine how the hotel has its 4 star rating. The bathroom was dated and not good quality at all. The toilet smelt. Not the standard of a 4 star hotel at all. The area leading to the indoor part of the swimming pool (tiny) was very shabby and not at all up to standard.
I've seen pictures of rooms that were obviously much better than ours, but with a price to match.
Breakfast was pleasant, but overpriced at 16 Euros each.
I've pointed out the things I really didn't like, but I would stay there again as overall, it was a very pleasant stay.

Stayed there for 2 nights in a superior room. Nice hotel, extremely quiet and lovely decoration. The staff is also very nice.
We were in room #12. The point is that the room was extremely small although with very modern decoration, wich I like. The only bad thing is that there is almost no space to store your luggages or clothes.
So I would recomment this hotel for a relaxing week end trip with very light luggage!
