We booked this as a short notice trip away - 3 night Bath stay with breakfast and an evening meal on one of the evenings. Superb value for money. We coined the term quirky to the hotel but what do you expect for a Georgian property. Yes it creaks and yes it's full of old furniture and paintings but that is what old places are about. If you want modern and corporate go elsewhere. All of the staff were attentive and friendly but a special mention has to go to Stacey who made the trip for us worthwhile. Knowledgeable about the local area and always smiling, she is an asset to the hotel.
The bar is nice, the food was good and hot and the surrounding area has plenty to keep you occupied as well. Get the bus to Bath as it makes the day less stressful looking for somewhere to park.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Moonraker hotel, a grade 2 listed 21 bedrooms Manor house situated on the outskirts of Bradford on Avon/ Trowbridge and a 15 minute drive from the Bath Spa. Mentioned in the Domesday book as being part of the Abbess of Glastonbury's estate, the Manor house was originally build in Queen Ann Style before being upgraded in the 17th century to Bath stone. Purchased by Tudor & Lucy Hopkins in July 2013 the hotel has undergone a full refurbishment including transforming the restaurant into a relaxed informal dining space. Head Chef Matthew Briddon (River cafe, Paul Heathcotes) joined the team in September 2013 and has created menus around the hotels kitchen garden and onsite smokery. Nine bee hives provide the hotel honey and rare breed pigs live on the grounds. Kathy Lette (writer and author) stayed at The Old Manor and wrote an article for the Express where she said: 'The bedrooms, with their four poster beds and wide wooden roof beams, are so Jane Austen-esque I kept expecting Mr Darcy to get down on bended knee' The Moonraker oozes old world charm and is a relaxed cotsworld escape with some of the UK's top attractions on its doorstep. ... more less
