Lords of the Manor Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in The Slaughters
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 July 2012

We have visited the hotel a few times now and on both occasions have had a superb time. The village is one of the prettiest in the UK which helps, but the hotel is refined and above all the food is superb and very good value for money. They are happy to swap dishes out of the set menu to accommodate dietary requirements etc. Every mouthful is an explosion of flavours. The hotel itself is lovely. The only comment I would make is that the breakfast is not overly exciting for someone who doesn't eat red meat. I mentioned this on my first visit and the second time I went I advised them in advance but the menu was still fairly uninspiring. Vege sausages and a few more vege options would be nice, not just tomato and mushrooms etc. Otherwise a very lovely place to go and I would definitely go back. If the breakfast were more accommodating I would have given this a 5 star. If you eat red meat then I'm sure the breakfast would also score 5. There is also one waitress/maitre D (?) who can be a little stand offish too. Very professional but not overly friendly. Also a good point to note was on our last visit it was to celebrate a silver and a ruby wedding anniversary and they upgraded our rooms which was really nice of them.

Room Tip: All rooms we have stayed in have been good.

We stayed for a 3 night stay, everything seemed fine at first, room was horrible, we had been promised one overlooking garden that i had requested, instead looked over main road! I asked to change room, but they did the old "we are full ploy"! mid week i doubt it!. food was quite good, but cluess eastern european staff had no interest in serving, dirty plates being left on our table for nearly 15 mins! menu choice was awful, two starters or two mains and everything was a supplement, so they could puff you into more expensive tasting menus! breakfast was not much better and we were rationed pastry and croissant which were under gaurd! joke. when we came to leave and i asked for bill i had seen that they had charged me for the times newspaper each day, i was never told there would be a charge, absolute disgrace. this place is all about making money, charge top dollar, employ cheap clueless european staff and milk it! defo never going back, go to devonshire arms in skipton, that is in a different leauge!

We first saw this hotel from a distance while on a country walk 2 years ago. We were so struck by the beauty of the building and setting that we decided then to stay there on our next UK trip. We did this year...and indeed loved the setting, the service and our room. The bathroom was one of the best we ever encountered and the room was very comfortable. Lovely sitting/bar rooms and a friendly, professional staff added to our enjoyment. A great place to relax and enjoy the Cotswolds,

We stayed at the hotel for one night in May, a last minute decision.
We were so lucky, it was a beautiful day when we arrived on the Sunday and we sat out to read the sunday papers. The grounds are beautiful and it's a stunning setting.
The evening meal in the restaurant was very good, we couldn't fault it.
Would definitely stay there again.

This is a very special place. Surrounded by some of the prettiest parts of the Cotswolds, this is a truly five star experience.

Our bedroom was large and well equipped with a good sized bathroom. The bed was possibly the most comfortable I've ever slept on. The restaurant served spectacular food, and the service was truly impeccable.

Really, I was left with the feeling that nothing was too much trouble. It was a true escape to the country.

This really is a most beautiful building in a tranquil village in one of the most beautiful parts of England. The jubilee weekend meant flags bedecked the buildings and a street party was underway by the brook, so English and lovely to see! We were upgraded to a fine spacious room with open timbered ceiling and well appointed, if a little low ceilinged, bathroom. Reception staff were polite and friendly.
Unfortunately we were quite disappointed with our dinner, having dined in many Michelin establishments we feel that this one is lacking the required finesse and were quite surprised. Whilst the staff were friendly they almost never managed to refill our empty water glasses (does this matter? In a sense no, we are very capable of doing so, BUT in a Michelin restaurant it does matter) and made some basic serving errors, there was nobody overseeing service. Tarnished cutlery does not help either.

The food was indeed tasty, well prepared and with local ingredients, however for a tasting menu the portions were actually far too big, the plates far too complicated and covered in sauces of all combinations to the point of looking a mess. Wine pairings were good but far too small for such large dishes and not served in a timely manner and when we asked for a top up for one course we were charged for it, something I have never seen before.

Finally on retiring to the empty bar for a digestive it took 30 minutes to find the Calvados, after realizing there was no Poire William (which we were charged for! Refunded), nor did they have the port we requested, to my mind this is really poor service and attitude in a Michelin restaurant. Compared to the likes of Tom Aiken it is not star material.

To top it all, despite having a kettle there was no milk or tea in the room, oh well!

Went for dinner party of 4 having previously stayed here a few times. Almost didnt come as took 3 calls to book
Reception busy and said they would call back didn't . On arrival met with blank stare and who are you? Despite call from hotel the day before to confirm the reservation . Very good food and wine
50 minute delay for desert which only arrived after a prompt not offered desert wine. Impression left hand didn't know what the right was doing but worth the trip for the food
