Called this evening to see if the hotel took dogs. I was told yes at a charge of £20. I asked if that was per stay or per night and was told it was per night!!!!
Hotel looked lovely and I really wanted to book, but the dog comes too or we don't go. We love our dog but paying £20 per night ..... This seems more of a prohibitive charge rather than a 'we welcome dogs' extra charge. I understand the need to charge extra for guests who have dogs, but most hotels we have stayed in have rooms set aside specifically for guests who bring their canine family members. The room is only going to be completely cleaned at the end of the stay so am not sure why the charge is per night.
It's a shame but this is one hotel we won't be visiting.
- 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
