Overview

A rural escape to a French manor house in Normandy, including breakfast and optional dinner

The Lowdown

A four-star boutique hotel nestled in the heart of the Andaine Forest, Le Manoir du Lys is surrounded by a beautiful natural habitat made up of leafy parkland and French orchards. A member of the Relais du Silence group, the hotel makes for an idyllic destination in the Bagnoles de L’Orne region of Normandy, amid gorgeous natural scenery. Emulating the feel of an authentic hunters’ lodge, it sits on three hectares of private land, completely immersed in the surrounding forest.
The hotel retains many of its period features among the bright color scheme throughout. Each room is individually decorated and features a view of the adjoining orchard. Cool yourself after a game of tennis in the nearby outdoor pool (open June to September), and enjoy leisurely laps in the indoor pool throughout the year. The hotel’s restaurant was awarded a Michelin star for its regional cuisine inspired by local flavors. It goes without saying that Le Manoir du Lys boasts a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Fabulous find

We have never been to this area before and were very surprised at the charm of the surrounding picturesque village and beautiful woodland area. The hotel was a great find very welcoming and lovely to have a heated pool on a 36c day. Set in a forest area the hotel is very charming with nice staff. We will definitely return.
Staff were very friendly but there was a shortage of them, so we had to go and find them for service.

Upper level hotel with less than upper level rooms & ditto dinner

The room we stayed in was fine, but not to the extent the price made us expect. The breakfast proved great, and the outdoor terrace where it can be sampled is wonderful in summer, The indoor/outdoor pool is an asset. It took us some pains to get served a drink there, though.

Perhaps it's also that I feel slightly uncomfortable when there is so much staff around, watching my every move and possible wish.

Sorry, Le Manoir was not for me.

disappointing

We had a very positive recommendation to stay here so we went, but regrettably it proved a disappointment. The staff were absolutely charming however the facilities were pretty poor. Our room was a 'superior' but was really not very good at all with dubious plumbing, inadequate curtains and a very uncomfortable hard bed. For this price I had expected a great deal more.

We had the tasting menu. Like the room it was colossally expensive but nonetheless disappointed us.

I'm really sorry to have to report that this - our big treat at the end of a holiday - was such a flop.
