This included 2 nights stay and 5 course meal on the first night with a 3 course meal on the second, both morning included breakfast. The hotel is an absolute gem and was exactly what we were looking... More

We have just spent 4 nights staying here whilst visiting Bath and the Cotswolds. This is a beautiful old manor style building, with lots of history and is set away from the road in quite large grounds. It's location for visiting this beautiful part of England is ideal, with the city of Bath and many of the picturesque villages being... More

A truly wonderful property in a lovely location. Close to many famous attractions. Very friendly staff who are very attentive. Food was locally sourced or grown/raised on site. A very traditional and quirky property. We really enjoyed our stay. Plenty of off road secure parking.

My partner and I promised to return to this jewel of an old manor house ...and here we are - back already. It's hard to keep away when you are travelling in the area. This time, as well as spending two nights savouring the hotel that dares to be different, we decided to try the dinner menu. That morning we... More

This was a one night stay whilst in the area, booked at short notice and based solely on TA reviews. I was absolutely thrilled with our choice. Moonraker is a gorgeous old manor house, with character and rustic charm in bucket loads, tastefully and thoughtfully decorated/ renovated with wonderful little touches here and there. The gardens are lovely to wander... More

we arrived at 2.30 on a Wednesday afternoon and from that moment the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They listen to what you want and act immediately. Our original room was a bit of a climb but we were shown a choice of three other rooms to choose from. The restaurant is comfortable and the food of extremely high... More

Friendly staff, quiet location, good food and quirky accommodation made this a very nice hotel. There were thoughtful touches such as flapjack and fresh milk for tea in your room on request. Really liked the Neals yard toiletries in the bathroom. Room 1 had a tall but really comfy four poster bed that you had to climb to get into!

A superb little hotel, remote enough to feel rural, being set in quaint grounds. Ducks, chickens and pigs are all kept in the paddock; ingredients don't get more local than that. The staff are fantastic. From the minute you arrive you are treated with overwhelming hospitality. Nothing is too much trouble, and they are genuinely engaging. We have stayed in... More

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
