Me and my partner had a very nice break in Bath and stayed at the Old Manor for 2 nights.
Reading reviews before and after our stay, I'm confused as to how people can complain about an original listed building, looking 'tired' or 'needing work', surely if that isn't your thing, don't book to stay at a hotel called The OLD Manor! And as for complaining about rainfall and resulting puddles?! It beggars belief what some people will try and pin on the staff and owners!
The rooms are very clean and comfortable with plenty of character, beds are big and dangerously comfortable, so set those alarms if you're heading into Bath which is a handy 20 min scenic drive away.
Food was very nice, served quickly by the friendly staff. Very much enjoyed the homemade jams and marmalade which were plentiful at breakfast, nice touch.
Upon checkout we were wished all the best and all in all had a very, very nice break.
Keep up the good work guys!
Steve & Katie.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Old Manor 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 milking Parlour 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 Old Manor hotel oozes old world charm and is a relaxed cotsworld escape with some of the UK's top attractions on its doorstep. ... more less
