Really impressed at arrival at this beautiful hotel. Looks a bit like Highgrove from the outside. Had a lovely stroll around the interesting gardens in the late afternoon sunshine and enjoyed a gin and tonic on the lawn before dinner. Ate a beautiful beef cottage pie with red cabbage and adjourned to my beautiful room in the old piggery building.... More

Lovely small guest house very friendly & accommodating staff, rooms basic but clean, not ver far from bath. Restuarant bijou, food very good, great value for money. We went on to stay at the 5 star royal bath, but staff much more friendlier at the moonraker. Only downside was the uncomfortable bed !

Beautiful, quirky hotel and grounds with separate drawing room for guests to relax. Hubby and I stayed for one night and were so impressed by all the young staff, they were really friendly and knowledgeable, especially Chloe our waitress in the evening. Dinner was terrific and the lemon curd creme brûlée the best I've ever tasted. I would have liked... More

We had a very enjoyable 2 night stay at The Moonraker with our dog, who especially enjoyed the paddock to run around and the pigs to make friends with! The hotel is lovely and the staff are very hospitable. The food is delicious, although we didn't get to try any of the smoked salmon which was a real disappointment especially... More

Husband was in Trowbridge on business so I went along too. We booked a room at the Moonraker and on making the booking I did ask for a quiet room. This we did not get. We were in room 15, above the reception area. The room was lovely itself, awesome mattress on the bed, spacious, great bathroom with gorg smelling... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband and 13 yr old and paid £270 with breakfast. It was worth every penny. The room was massive, beautifully decorated and looked out, both back and front onto picturesque views. Everything was "as advertised" - free toiletries, hairdryer, excellent wifi connection etc. In the grounds of the hotel is a "walled... More

Stayed in room 6 which lacked a proper shower , had a 1970's coloured bathroom suite . The 1930's wardrobe was inadequate & tatty along with the chest of drawers . The tea & coffee making facilities were housed on a table which looked to be from a house clearance . Two plug sockets looked loose or unsafe . Fortunately... More

Stayed at the Moonraker last night - for the second time in recent months. I have to be fair the accommodation is first class - everything is 'just so ...' It was a business trip to Trowbridge. When we stopped before - circa March - we paid £100 per person and this included breakfast. Company paid - no great shakes.... More

Thanks for your feedback, really pleased to hear you had a good stay with us. I am not sure how your company booked us but we do offer 'room only' rates on 3rd party websites, maybe that is why there was a difference in both price and what was included. The best thing to do with us is set up... More

The Moonraker has the potential to be one of the best hotels/eateries in the area. Its food is truly exceptional, the building is stunning, the produce is ethical, and the service is friendly/efficient. But sadly there's a few things amiss. For example - why is there cheap wood effect lino in the restaurant? It completely undermines the character of what... More

Thank you for leaving feedback on your stay with us. I am pleased to report the driveway is now sorted. The floor in the restaurant is super expensive wood affect flooring. We get loads of comments about how amazing it looks, for those of your who know about these things the brand is called Amtico. Glad you liked everything else... More

Came over for a one day business trip and stayed at the Moonraker. This place was the most original and awesome place ever been before. And I've stayed in hotels from 1 to 5 star all over the world. This hotel and restaurant represents the uniqueness of the British countryside. It's like in old British films! The room was good,... More
