What a fabulous day we all had! From the planning of the event through to the day itself I could not have asked for more. Beautiful venue, lovely staff, very comfortable rooms and great food..... what more could you possible want....Oh yes, the sunshine we ordered was also right on cue ;) Thank you to Stacey for the perfect planning,...

We booked a half-term break through Pets Pyjamas to stay at the Old Manor Hotel. On the day of our arrival, the hotel rang to let us know its change of name to The Moonraker. We appreciated the call, otherwise we'd probably have sailed past. Firstly, both we and our dog were warmly welcomed. The staff were all friendly and... More

We were a party of eleven guests meeting up for a family get together. The atmosphere of this hotel is relaxed charm; staff were very friendly and helpful; furniture in the bedroom felt individual and full of character, and the building itself is very attractive. Good food is very important in my family, and our meals lived up to our... More

Sampled the tasting menu with colleagues, absolutely faultless. Each course was delicious especially the home cured salmon and the artichoke risotto. I will definitely be returning for a weekend away with my partner. Really friendly and welcoming environment and the most handsome dog you've ever seen!

We stayed here in a group as a base to visit Bath and other local attractions. The hotel is located on the edge of Trowbridge on the road to Bradford on Avon. Initial impressions are that parts of the grounds are a bit tired eg the drive is uneven. The 'kitchen garden' looked sad (although it was March) and the... More

I have rules when replying to online reviews. 1. Sleep on it before replying (key) 2. Try not to turn into a basil faulty type person and rant away (however much it hurts) 3. Realise that this is just one person’s view and not to get too upset So here goes, hopefully you can’t hear the music playing in the... More

Perfect weekend getaway! Would highly recommend The Moonraker to anyone whether it be friends, partners, families or groups... it seems to cater to everyone. The staff could not have been more accommodation (special mention to Ryan and Claudia), it felt nothing was too big to ask from them. Further the restaurant was nothing short of amazing we ended up dining... More

We were looking for a hotel near to relatives in Trowbridge. We liked the look of the Moonraker because of recent reviews and location. We booked a two night deal which included a five course taster menu on the first evening and breakfast on both days in a superior room. We arrived at around 5 pm having driven from Devon.... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback both my wife and I really appreciate you taking the time to give us your views. Since purchasing the hotel in July 2013 we have done pretty much a complete transformation of the hotel from the food we offer (locally sourced and grown here in our kitchen garden), to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at The Moonraker Hotel. The staff were all very welcoming & helpful & the hotel has a friendly relaxed atmosphere. All the food in the restaurant is freshly cooked from scratch using local ingredients. The five course tasting menu was very good & the breakfast (cooked to order) was a delicious start to... More

We spent one night at the Moonraker (previously known as the Old Manor Hotel) between Bradford-on Avon and Trowbridge - using a Travelzoo voucher. We had a lovely time. The superior room we upgraded to was quirky - and very nice. The 5 course tasting menu was delicious. The building is beautiful and full of character. Best of all, the... More

We stayed at the hotel for one night and had the five course taster menu for our evening meal. The food was beautifully presented and tasted superb. The waitress explained about each course as it was served and was attentive to our needs throughout the evening. All the staff were courteous and friendly. Our room was excellent and the bed...
