Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons, A Belmond Hotel
Winner of the C&TH x Polestar award for sustainability 2023, this is one of the best- known manor house hotels in the country – and for good reason. With the unequivocal gastronomic vision of Chef Patron Raymond Blanc OBE, the restaurant here received two Michelin stars in the first year of opening, in 1984, and has held them ever since. More recently, a Green Michelin Star has been added, acknowledging the seasonality, foraging and no waste approach that are integral to the dining experience. The good news is that guests staying overnight are guaranteed a table for dinner. Afterwards, retire to one of the 32 individually designed rooms and suites, each one drawing inspiration from Blanc’s travels – with it’s toile de jouy wallpaper that evokes a sense of France. Stroll through manicured gardens to discover the magnificent orchards, ponds and sculptures, or book into classes at The Raymond Blanc Cookery and Gardening Schools. ‘Everyone aspires to one moment of luxury: here is the place to have it,’ says Blanc. We couldn’t agree more.
