Madame Catherine is the heart and soul of the Manoir. She provides the warmest of welcomes and nothing is too much trouble. Franglais is the language of the day so don't worry if you don't speak much French, a few gestures go a long way and its part of the fun.

If you're after a cheap B&B, this isn't the place for you. If you want excellent rooms with quirky character, cosy beds with crisp ironed sheets and duvets, and quirky ensuite batrooms then it is. (No baths only showers but they're very good) Try the "Tour" room, it's circular within a turret! There's also free WiFi and dinner if you book in dvance.

The Manior is an old building of various ages, all the wooden floors are a bit uneven and creak a bit but that's part of the charm. Off street parking is available for a few cars.

Breakfast offers an array of cold continental breakfast items plus the option of a boiled egg from local chickens. I think they're the ones in the back garden. Dinner if booked in advance is a long drawn out affair. An aperitif at about 8pm followed by starter, main course, cheese and dessert. (The starter might not arrive for a while, but we're on holiday!) All the food is cooked by Catherine and is of restaurant quality or better. We had 3 dinners on our break and the dishes included roasted pork fillet, asparagus in horseradish sauce, wild salmon in hollandaise sauce, pan fried duck breasts in plum sauce, strawberries infused with mint, madagascan vanilla ice cream and various tarts and cakes etc

The Manoir is well placed for an overnight stay on the way to or back from the channel ports or tunnel. Remy is a sleepy village but the busy town of Compiegne is a few miles away as is the interesting town of Chantilly and its heritage. Paris and even various parts of the coast are also doable. You need a car to get around and see the sights but without one you probably wouldn't stay here anyway.

We are definitely going to return in August for a stopover when we drive to the south of France. It'll be great to experience the Manoir again and experience Catherine's cooking.

Room Tip: Ask for the "Tour" for the room in the turret. It's not the biggest but how many times will you sleep in a circular room?

Stayed here for one night on our way to Limousin to break up the journey. The room was lovely and quiet - had a great nights sleep! Off road parking available, which was good since our car was packed. We had dinner and I was 7 months pregnant and nothing was too much trouble. Dinner was a traditional French fare all served lovely and no complaints - my husband is a trained chef so that is good for me!!! Breakfast was lovely - a variety of yoghurts, breads, jams, eggs, croissants etc. the place is pricey, however I thought it was well worth it. Will definitely return.

When we go to France we always stay in chambres d'hotes. In the past we have stayed in places that were similar or better/nicer than this one and where we paid a lot less.
The room is nice but does not justify 140 €. Bathroom could have been cleaner. Very good bed: we did sleep very well. Breakfast is good.
We had dinner there as well. Food was OK. Nothing more, nothing less. Bear in mind that water/wine are not included in the price and that they charge restaurant prices for it, while the choice is quite limited. Aperitif and coffee are included. After all we paid 86€ for dinner.
Will we go back to this place? No
Do I recommend this place? No

I had the chance to return to Manoir St Ch after a couple of years as my business brought me to the area again, and was curious to know if the place lived up to my happy memories of the previous stay.

Same friendly welcome, same well furnished comfortable room, same superb home cooking and same great value (Eu115 per night DBB including wine).

Personally I dont think this place can be bettered - having rediscovered it I plan to come back with the family in the summer.

Stayed here two nights while visiting the chateau used for Merlin TV series, and the forest where the first world war armistice and the French capitulation to Hitler in 1940 were signed. Quiet village and lots of parking.
Excellent welcome and a beautiful looking room with some style and personality with a shared balcony running across back of house, although very steep stairs to negotiate, again good in that only this room was served by them. Very comfortable and good quality bed and furnishings, although room not totally clean as would be expected for the rate. However during meals and as the kitchen cleared up, the noise and telltale smells of smoking waft up to the room.
Shame that torrential rain arrived about 2 hours after us - had time for a drink by the pool though and chat with other Brits on tour.
Then dinner - huge salmon steak with vibrant yellow (saffron I assume) sauce which had absolutely no flavour. Way too large a portion for pretty much anyone, and such slow service - had to agree an 8.00pm time (as for everyone else) but then it began about 8.40pm and took ages so we didn't have a dessert - after a long day driving and sightseeing this was not a great experience. Breakfast was limited but OK and the room charming.
Final moan - overnight the WC began to smell dreadfully - had to close up the bathroom door and not go in until could open up the french doors and the twin bathroom windows to let the air flow through.
Our hostess was so charming that we couldn't bring ourselves to discuss the faults at the time - others may be less critical it seems, but it is not as brilliant as the review scores suggest, although preferable to a chain hotel for a stopover.
