We have just returned from a long weekend at The Old Manor Hotel.This is the first time we have been to Bradford on Avon & what a lovely part of the country.We were a party of 10 cousins getting together for a reunion & we couldn't have picked a better place to stay.We all had different grades of rooms & there wasn't one complaint about anything.The rooms were all lovely,clean,bright, lovely bathrooms,in our case we stayed in room 48 which had a bath & walk in shower.Everything was spotless.Furnishings were very much in keeping with the period of the Grade 11 building.Very comfortable beds & very clean.
Staff were very welcoming & informative,nothing was too much bother for them.Breakfast staff were extremely attentive & very quick when any of us requested anything.Breakfast buffet plentiful,the full English came hot & on hot plates(can't stand hot food on cold plates)serving ten of us at a time was no mean feat,but we all ate at the same time.Evening dining was also a pleasure.We occupied a private room so could all talk without disturbing other guests.We were spoilt for choice with the dinner menu,again everything we ordered came exactly as we requested,good choice of wines,and after we retired to the lounge where we had tea or coffee.There were no objections to us rearranging furniture for our party(by the time we retired to the lounge other guests had already retired to their rooms,so we didn't upset anyone)We did return furniture to it's rightful place!
The weather was awful the whole weekend,but this made no difference to us as the hotel was warm & comfortable.If you go int Bradford on Avon visit the Bridge Tea House,lovely cream teas,!
We went on a KGB offer, great value for money £99 including the upgrade to Superior room.We would definately go back to The Old Manor Hotel.
- 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
