"Elegance and charm, nature and calm, great flavours and great taste." All the sweetness of Normandy. Welcome to the Quinton and Lebailly families' hotel.
"These families will welcome you to their own home. And you’re sure to be satisfied thanks to the quality welcome, beautiful decor, flavoursome food and irreproachable service."
We tell a different story every day, the Quintons and Lebaillys explain. This authentic hunting lodge situated in Normandy close to the Grand Domaine de Bagnoles-de-l'Orne is straight out of an adventure book. A sensory adventure for its guests thanks, in particular, to a Michelin-starred restaurant. The Hotel Le Manoir du Lys, The Originals Relais, with its 23 rooms and 7 suites, not to mention its magnificent swimming pool, is a charming 4-star hotel in Lower Normandy dedicated to relaxation and well-being. A haven of peace nestled in the heart of a large estate, where life is lived at a gentle pace, presided over by the Quinton and Lebailly families.
The decoration was dreamt up by Yvon Lebailly, who’s also chef sommelier. Every room is different, but they’re all inspired by the surrounding nature. The 23 rooms - attic, duplex or ultra-contemporary - have a unique atmosphere combining tradition and modernity. "We want to offer our guests a unique experience, really allowing them to get away from it all," explain the owners. There are also 7 apartments with their own terraces, raised on stilts at the edge of the forest. These bucolic living spaces can accommodate 2 to 5 people in absolute comfort.

What our customers say
"Good hotel, great people"
Great place to stop when touring in France. Warm welcome, peaceful location, comfortable rooms and excellent food. What more to ask for?
Loved the welcome on arrival and the departure. Everyone seemed v well trained in hospitality which is often not the case. Room v comfortable and food delicious. Perhaps the real difference was that ‘we felt comfortably at home’ as it seemed did the other guests.
"Great stay for the whole family"
We had a wonderful stay in August with our young children. The staff were friendly, the food and wine was delicious and the facilities were perfect for a young family (pool, playground, lots of space). We thought the rooms were well appointed and very private. Overall, a great experience.
