Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Great Milton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 February 2014

I had the pleasure of staying here for five nights in early February and attended the residential 4 day cookery course in the hotel's cookery school. This was very successful...a mixture of fun and learning which surpassed my expectations in every department due in no small way to the expertise of Mark the head tutor and his talented team. If you love food and learning then you will not be disappointed and there are a whole variety of shorter courses available should a longer course not be your thing.

The actual stay at the hotel was wonderful in terms of service, comfort, attention to detail and the standard of food and drink provided. The staff were all friendly, helpful and professional from welcome to departure. The breakfasts are superb with a wide choice for every palate and the evening meals provided during the week were a gastronomic delight: seafood, fish, game , offal. meat and desserts beautifully prepared and presented. Apart from a fine wine cellar and knowledgeable and helpful sommeliers, the bar also stocks some fine ales including bottle conditioned Worthington White Shield, rarely found these days.

The numerous log fires more than compensated for damp February weather and one felt truly cosseted throughout the stay.

A wonderful property in which we had a comfortable suite with log fire . Staff were warm and attentive . But for an establishment which has gained its notoriety on the quality of its food that was excactly the area which disappointed - nothing wrong but just just nothing to excite .

This wonderful hotel lived up to and even surpassed our expectations. The service is impeccable without it feeling too intrusive. The staff at all times were very friendly and attentive. It was a very special weekend and one that my husband and I will remember for a very long time. I cannot speak higlhly enoughof this place.

don't expect the food to be a gastronomic experience. It isn't.. It is good but not outstanding and the menus are restricting. No beef, pork , lamb etc. game or fish or veggie. At least there is more food offered than at Cliveden.
But the accommodation and the staff were absolutely delightful and charming.

The location is idyllic, the rooms fabulous, the staff delightful and the food out of this world. Has room service not slipped up (one order wrong and one not materialising at all) I could have scored it100%.
Even so 99.9 has been sufficient for a memorable weekend to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.
All the food has been excellent and I particularly recommend the "Menu Decouvert" which does what it says on the tin, taking you on a culinary trip of discovery.
Definite recommend for that special occasion. Thanks to the staff for their kind attention.

We wanted somewhere special to stay to celebrate my birthday and as a couple who enjoy good food this seemed a good choice. Well it was a perfect choice!

From the moment we pulled into the car park we were perfectly looked after. Our luggage was taken and when we reached reception they were waiting for us and were shown to our room. This was ‘Passion Flower’ one of the courtyard rooms beautifully furnished with its own outdoor space which unfortunately we could not take advantage of due to the weather!

After a walk around the magnificent gardens we enjoyed tea and pastries in front of a blazing log fire.

Dinner that evening was a truly fantastic event. A pre-dinner aperitif while we looked at the menu for our five course dinner. We also chose the wine package where each course has a specially paired glass of wine. As you would expect each course was exceptional in terms of presentation and flavours. Service was attentive but unobtrusive. We finished with coffee in the lounge having experienced a memorable dining experience.

After a comfortable night’s sleep morning tea was served in our room. Breakfast in the dining room was again perfect. I had what was probably the best ‘full English’ ever.

Checkout was quick and friendly with water and biscuits for the journey home. Our car was delivered to reception, bags loaded and we were on our way after a birthday experience we will remember for a long time.
