“Wonderful welcome and stay”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

This is a regular overnight stop for us, we never fail to be given a good welcome with friendly and courteous treatment by any member of staff we encounter. Always, we look forward to enjoying the food both at dinner and breakfast.
Of course we do not expect to be fed English style meals and appreciate the fact the we have local and hotel speciallitoes available. Whatever possible is home grown. One reviewer writes rather rudely about others in the dining room, not an experience we have ever encoutered in many stays, so I wonder what sort of behaviour the reviewer displays! Excellent use is made of the rooms available in an old Manoir, where one cannot expect the size etc. of a modern purpose built 'box hotel'. Character, comfort, courtesy, care and fine dining sum up 'The Manoir'.

Having read all the good reviews we were really looking forward to staying here. The manoir looks very nice from the outside but didn't come up to scratch inside. We were allocated an attic room with lots of 'ducking' on the way up. The room and bathroom were very clean but the towels provided were very small (hand towels) and thin. The lady who checked us in was very friendly and pleasant but rushed off her feet all the time. In the dining room in the evening the serving staff seemed almost sullen and walked past our table numerous times without taking our dirty dishes. We made the mistake of choosing the smoked pork cooked in cidre and then grilled, it seemed nothing more than a large rasher of bacon totally overcooked, dry and almost inedible served with copious amounts of sauted apples and one floret of broccoli but no potatoes of any kind. for starters we had the duo of terrines, which was nothing special and served with a ' mean' amount of bread and some gherkins. Certainly not the gourmet standard I had read about. We weren't told of a 'lounge' but as the weather was pleasant had a drink outside. We also felt the breakfast was overpriced for what it was 9,50 Euros for a very basic continental breakfast and 14,50 if you wanted to add a slice of ham, slice of cheese and a boiled egg. Our one night stay with the cheaper of the two set meals and the basic breakfast came to almost 200 euros. We definitely won't be going back.

The hotel is in a lovely quiet location and is very peaceful. It's very clean and the annex we stayed in smelled of washing powder - not unpleasant - reminded me of washing day at my grandmother's. The main manor house has two dining rooms on the ground floor and a very small reception. We did not find the lounge until the second night and purely by accident as it was hidden behind a curtain off the dining room. There were some wicker chairs and hard dining chairs. It was not really a functional lounge. The staff were polite and pleasant. Two girls seemed to be doing everything and were clearly struggling to keep up with manning reception, serving dinner, serving breakfast, fetching wine etc. Dinner was reasonably priced - about 20 euros for three good courses and generally very nice -although steak at that price is never going to be the best. Breakfast however was very disappointing. I couldn't eat the muesli and don't consider myself particularly fussy - so some albeit nice pastries and a cup of tea was somewhat overpriced at 9 euros 50. You could also have fresh white cheese and a compote with that too and fresh fruit, but all in all not a very good breakfast for the price. It did take rather a long time for a jug of milk to arrive on the table too, but I couldn't fault the staff as they were run ragged. It really needs the provision of milk on the table with the cereal like other hotels.
The room was very comfortable apart from the angled ceiling in the toilet where I bumped my head three times and kept very clean.
Be aware that the hotel closes access to the bedrooms after 11:30 pm in the summer and 10:30 pm in the winter (check the times as I'm writing this from memory). I have to say that I would stay here again (avoiding breakfast) because Villedieu looked sadly run down and not necessarily pleasant for an evening meal, but I do think that the hotel could do better. Maybe they would have to charge a little more because the price is very reasonable but a few extra staff and a pleasant lounge would make a lot of difference.

Room Tip: If you are tall you are going to have problems in a converted attic room in the annex.

The hotel was quiet but easy to find. It looks gorgeous and the food is wonderful. We only stayed one night. Next time it will be for longer. The staff were friendly and helpful. Very relaxing. Drinks on the lawn were welcome. Atmosphere very pleasant.

Our car broke down on the French motorway on a Saturday evening and they couldn't fix it until Monday at the earliest. We were really stressed out, didn't want to have to stay somewhere over night, but in the end we had no choice. We found a hotel round the corner and decided to make the best of it. In fact, it turned out to be a wonderful - if unexpected - weekend break.

The room was enormous with a big comfy bed and well-appointed bathroom. The house is set in large grounds and in a very quiet and peaceful location. We stayed in an outbuilding that may have been an old stable block or barn, which had been converted to a high standard. The food was amazing and they went out of their way to accommodate my coeliac diet and even had gluten free breakfast cereal available. We've marked this on the map for an overnight stay next time we're travelling, it was exceptional and we are really looking forward to going back again.

Very good overnight stay here. Had a large double room on the ground floor in what looked like a converted barn/coach house. Room was spotless and decorated in a French style. Bathroom enormous, clean with separate WC. As this hotel is located quite near the English Channel thought we may be able to pick up English TV but was not possible. Food quite good, menu all in french (take your dictionary). The waitress (I think she was the owner) spoke good English.
Could not see a lounge which is a nice feature if you dislike sitting in your room.
Disliked all the notices everywhere asking you to save water and/or electricity.

Room Tip: Breakfast not served until 8 o'clock in the restaurant - difficult for early starts.
