Girlfriend and I took this a a one nighter with 5 course taster menu. On arrival we were offered an upgrade to a 4 poster bed and room with a beautiful view. The receptionist could not have been more friendly and less snobby. This, indeed applies to all the staff who served us and made us thoroughly welcome. Dinner was excellent and supremely presented by the waitress...we'll even forgive her starting every sentence with "So..." It seems to be in fashion right now. Breakfast was stupendous. Reading some of the other comments on here we are appalled at just how mealy-mouthed some people can be.
We have recommended our visit to more than a couple we know and we hope they take up the offer. They surely wont be disappointed. If I could give you six stars, then I would. Thank you for everything. We had a wonderful time at the Old Manor.
- 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
