The surroundings are beautiful. The furnishings and appointments are lovely. But the ambiance, service and attitude were terrible. There was no effort at cordiality, Very disappointing. The charges were exorbitant.

It's not the location - gorgeous - or the staff or service - impeccable. It's the deadly dull menu and the wrist-slashing price. We paid nearly $600 per couple for dinner and 2 very average bottles of wine, some dry tasteless sweetbreads the size of...More

Dear barbara0000744, Thank you so much for your kind review of our property. Blantyre is the ideal place to de-stress, in fact, the word Blantyre translates from Gaelic into "warm retreat", a term our guests find uniquely applicable as they approach the Main House from...More

Description
Dining is a very special event at Blantyre, Relais & Châteaux. Late every afternoon, the Main House undergoes a lovely transformation as we prepare for the delightful dining experience to come that evening. Linens are brought out, tables are set with sterling silver, fine china, crystal, and fresh flowers. Beautiful music fills the air and candles are lit. Under the knowing eye of Chef Arnaud Cotar, the kitchen is a hive of activity as the finest ingredients are used to create a memorable, outstanding dining experience. When you arrive, you can enjoy a pre-dinner glass of Champagne and canapés on the Covered Terrace or in the Main Hall, or sample one of our rich red wines in the Music Room. When your first course is ready our host will escort you to the dining room where your delicious dinner begins. Enjoy a glass of wine from our Wine Cellar, the recipient of the 2011 Grand Award Wine Spectator. Should your evening plans include a Friday or Saturday performance at Tanglewood or Jacob's Pillow, you may wish to postpone dessert. Upon your return, coffee, an assortment of cheeses and a beautifully prepared dessert buffet is served in the Music Room. In keeping with our house tradition, we require gentlemen to wear a jacket and tie. We also offer 24-hour room service.
