Have no worries in staying here - a top notch hotel that does everything right. On arrival was offered a free upgrade to a suite (room 48) which I highly recommend. We received a warm welcome and explanation of the layout of the hotel - very welcoming and efficient. The room was immaculate. Ultra clean and comfortable bed. Totally quiet with no noises from adjacent rooms. Dinner & Breakfast served in very nice dining room. Dinner portion was if anything overlarge and if you like your steak rare ask for blue as chef plays safe and slightly overdoes the meat. Full english breakfast was a delight. All in all cannot commend highly enough. Both the male evening waiter and the morning female waitress were top notch and attentive. Checkout was smooth, bill 100% accurate and the checkout lady was very pleasant. All in all a fantastic stay - and I'm not easily pleased. Well done everyone at the Manor - I'm going to book for my birthday in September.
- 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
