The best hotels with Michelin-starred restaurants 

The best hotels know that the way to a guest’s heart is through their stomach, turning loyal customers into outspoken devotees, one gourmet tasting menu at a time. While many of the world’s great hotels have at least one on-site restaurant that could stand alone as a worthy eatery, there are a few pairings that we just have to mention, all of them hosting Michelin-starred restaurants and all of them offering prestige stays to remember. Without further ado, here are our top 13 Michelin star restaurant hotels.

Boasting two Michelin stars, The Yeatman Gastronomic Restaurant is an attraction in itself, thanks to its gourmet take on Portuguese classics, made using the freshest seafood and paired to perfection with speciality wines

1. Trianon Palace Versailles, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Versailles, France

Not the only Waldorf Astoria hotel in this list, the Trianon Palace Versailles is both a gift to French hospitality and a testament to its cuisine. If the hotel’s location – right next door to the Palace of Versailles – and its 1907 neoclassic architecture aren’t enough to win you over, then Gordon Ramsay’s Au Trianon kitchen just might be, where a blend of baroque and modern French cuisine comes prepared and served beside an impeccable wine list to meet all your 5-star needs. No, Gordon is not French, but it’s easy to forgive him as one of the world’s top chefs with most Michelin stars ever known. Elsewhere in Trianon Palace Versailles, enjoy a sun-kissed breakfast on La Véranda and an afternoon tea at Bar Galeria, before retreating to Spa Guerlain for a treatment or two.

2. Atrio Restaurante Hotel, Cáceres, Spain

With foodie priorities laid out in its name, the Atrio Restaurante Hotel flips the script by putting its food above all else, with lodging a secondary – though still exceptional – measure. Atrio – the Spanish for atrium – is also a central element of this restaurant hotel, allowing the owners to create a culinary landmark in the centre of Cáceres, harking back to traditional Mediterranean architecture and Iberian family lifestyles. More than its setting, the Atrio Restaurante Hotel has earnt not one but two Michelin stars, thanks to its flavourful and technical cuisine sourced from the region’s finest ingredients (Iberian pork, seafood and paprika) and all paired with wines from its vast wine cellar.

3. SingleThread Farm Restaurant & Inn, Healdsburg, US

Keeping things homely with its 5-room farmhouse in downtown Healdsburg (Sonoma County, California), SingleThread Farm Restaurant & Inn subverts expectations with an authentic Japanese kitchen using seasonal ingredients sourced from its farm down the road. The restaurant here has three Michelin stars, due in no small part to its kaiseki-inspired menu, on which you’ll find dishes such as black-truffle omelette (with local Cowgirl Creamery cheese) and cheddar-roasted salmon served with yuzu scented rice. After going for 11 courses, rest up in comfort knowing that Sonoma and its famed wineries still await your discovery.

4. The Yeatman, Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal

Though Lisbon Michelin star restaurants are more in number, it’s Porto hotel The Yeatman that we can’t stop raving about, a frequent mention on our tours of the best wine hotels throughout Portugal and the world at large. The Yeatman also happens to be one of the best hotels with Michelin starred restaurants found anywhere. Boasting two Michelin stars, in fact, The Yeatman Gastronomic Restaurant is an attraction in itself, thanks to its gourmet take on Portuguese classics, made using the freshest seafood and paired to perfection with speciality wines, some of which have legacies dating back to 2000BC. Enjoy a meal overlooking the Douro River in the UNESCO-listed medieval town of Porto, booking a tasting session to sample wines from the 25,000 bottle cellar.

5. The Chedi Andermatt, Switzerland

Putting the Swiss alpine village of Andermatt on the map among those who don’t ski, is The Chedi Andermatt, an unusual addition to the skyline, dwarfing the chalets and homes around it with its vast resort complex of 123 luxury rooms, a health club, spa and as many as five restaurants. Get lost in the Asian-inspired space, moving between cosy fireplaces to the Wine and Cigar Library before trying the Michelin-starred sushi and sashimi at The Japanese Restaurant. The hotel’s swiss and international offering, plainly labelled The Restaurant also features a loaded cheese cellar for guests’ admiration.

Managing to simultaneously outdo Gordon Ramsey, Wolfgang Puck and Mario Batali all at once, is the two-Michelin-starred chef at Waku Ghin, Tetsuya Wakuda, who serves up Japanese-European fusion fare to perfection

6. Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

One of the more iconic hotels on this list is Marina Bay Sands which dominates Singapore’s entire skyline with the world’s largest rooftop infinity pool raised some 207 metres into the sky atop three futuristic skyscrapers. Based in Singapore’s most central and expensive areas, Marina Bay Sands has a whopping 2,561 rooms, convention centre, museum, skating rink, casino and two large theatres, but the reason we come is to try any of its 10 celebrity-run restaurants. Managing to simultaneously outdo Gordon Ramsey, Wolfgang Puck and Mario Batali all at once however is the two-Michelin-starred chef at Waku Ghin, Tetsuya Wakuda, who serves up Japanese-European fusion fare to perfection.

7. The Cottage In The Wood, Cumbria, UK

Whoever said English food was rubbish certainly had never set foot in Cumbria’s Cottage In The Wood, a Michelin star UK kitchen-cum-lodging enfolded in woodland, 10 minutes from Keswick. All the dishes prepared by chef Ben Wilkinson are put together from the locally sourced larder, with elderberry, monkfish and venison heavily featured. Dine in the sun-dappled conservatory looking out at the wildlife of Whinlatter Forest, walking to Bassenthwaite Lake and Lorton Vale if the feeling takes you. On return to the house for a kip, you’ll notice that the traditional 17th-century architecture of slate roofing and black beam trims actually gives way to plush contemporary interiors.

8. Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin, Germany

A legendary Berlin property hosting its own two-Michelin-starred restaurant is Hotel Adlon Kempinski, a 1907 lodging with a prestigious former guest list that includes Kaiser Wilhelm II, Charlie Chaplin and even Einstein. Since its heyday the hotel has been rebuilt and demolished more than once, today standing as a symbol of reunification between East and West Berlin in the Mitte commercial centre. Come for the 5-star facilities as well as the European haute cuisine from the masterful hands of chef Hendrik Otto, dining in view of the iconic Brandenburg Gate, just one of the many landmarks in the area.

9. Hotel Akelarre, San Sebastián, Spain

Not one, not two but three Michelin stars decorate the triumph that is Hotel Akelarre, a property reigning upon the coastal hills just outside Spain’s San Sebastián and overlooking the Bay of Biscay. As well as its sea-view setting, Hotel Akelarre’s modernist design concept melds with black marble, pale oak and filitia stone interiors to provide the perfect environment to enhance chef Pedro Subijana’s cutting-edge gastronomy. Come for Subijana’s magical plays on traditional Basque cuisine, choosing from three tasting menus while snacking on gorgeous tapas appetizers and sampling wines from the 650-bottle wine cellar.

10. Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Rome, Italy

As well as having the prestige of its Waldorf Astoria proprietors on the hill of Monte Mario, Rome Cavalieri is deserving of having a trumpet blown in its own name, for both its unmatched views over Rome and its sublime dinnertime set-up. The hotel’s on-site restaurant, La Pergola, run by celebrity chef Heinz Beck, is Rome’s first and only three-Michelin-star restaurant and a glittering addition to an already acclaimed lodging. Besides an art collection to rival some museums, the hotel also comes complete with four swimming pools, two red-clay tennis courts and an award-winning spa, elevated by an amethyst Turkish Bath, for days when the five kilometres to the Vatican seem like too much effort.

11. Le Brittany & Spa, Roscoff, France

Choosing among the 119 Michelin star restaurants Paris has to offer can be overwhelming, but in Roscoff, it’s a simple toss-up between Le Brittany’s Le Yachtman and L’hôtel de Carantec’s Restaurant Nicolas Carro. International Relais & Châteaux hotel, Le Brittany & Spa wins our vote, owing to its 17th-century manor setting decked out in contemporary Breton styles by the beach. Within the manor, guests can be spoilt by French hospitality across the spa, hearthside bar or sea-view terrace, working up an appetite for gourmet seafood mains at Le Yachtman, framed by rustic stone walls and vaulted windows that look out over the bay.

12. Relais & Chateaux Villa Crespi, Italy

The penultimate mention on our list of best hotels with Michelin starred restaurants is the Relais & Châteaux-associated Villa Crespi, a Moorish-style palace set on the shores of Lake Orta. An hour from Milan, the eccentric Villa Crespi is well worth the journey, allowing guests to live in 19th-century luxury, in the style of the nobles, rulers and poets who once resided here. If that illustrious history wasn’t enough, then the property’s two-star Michelin restaurant operated by chef Antonino Cannavacciuolo just might be, where a Mediterranean gourmet menu comes paired with the finest Italian and international wines.

13. Number One at The Balmoral, Edinburgh, UK

First, on the list of Michelin star restaurants, Scotland is Number One at The Balmoral, making up for Edinburgh’s grey weather with a hearty menu of contemporary French-Scottish bistro fare. Seasonal and local ingredients at The Balmoral include BBQ Orkney scallop, North Sea cod, Shetland mussel and Highland Wagyu beef, all served up amid an elegant Olga Pollizi-designed basement strung with art. Above ground, the hotel features another highlight; its clocktower views of both new and old Edinburgh, all overseen by Edinburgh Castle looming large in the background. There are only nine other Michelin star restaurants in Scotland, notably the Restaurant Andrew Fairlie with two stars of its own.
