After being given a small room for three nights I asked to be moved and this was no trouble. The staff were all very attentive and nothing was too much for them. The room overlooked fields with a rose bush in front of the window. Food was delicious and all herbs and veg came from the walled garden. Great place...

My wife, dog and I only stayed for one night, but to sum things up in one word...Outstanding! We really liked the old English feel to the hotel. The room we stayed in (with our dog) was clean, tidy, warm and dry - just how I like it. My wife was particularly impressed with the 'Neils Yard' toiletries (being a...

Our meal was fantastic, we had the meat board to start which is all smoked onsite - it was so so delicious! I had the...

Was really looking forward to staying here, especially as it is apparently dog friendly, the photos on the website looked really fab and the 'about the hotel' web page talked about a walled garden, rare breed pigs and chickens... Unfortunately, the hotel looks as though at one stage it offered everything you read about and see from the photos on...

Stayed here for one night. Lovely setting, quiet location. The room 11 has nice view out onto countryside field lovely to hear the birds singing in the dawn chorus. The only downside was the number of midges in the room. I think the windows were left open and there must be standing wster somewhere as there were a lot. Apart...

Big thank you to all the staff at the Moonraker. We had a great stay and I really enjoyed my birthday celebration. Special mention to a lovely Romanian lady who looked after us during our tasting menu. She was great.

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
