We were looking for a couple of days away with the hound and I spotted the Moonraker. The idea of the gardens, smokery, chef, dog rooms and the ability to have a massage did it for me. The main building is lovely and characterful. I would like to see a larger bar as it could be quite a sociable place...

Very enjoyable stay. Nice rooms, friendly staff and great food. A special mention for the young lady at dinner, very rarely do you get both a very hard worker, she never stopped, and a great personality.

On the 8th of March, we had a two night mid week break at the Moonraker Hotel Trowbridge Wiltshire. I am sorry to say it did not live up our expectations. The disappointments came as soon as we registered. The images on their website are misleading. A picture of a roaring log fire. Because we had the pleasure of having...

I stayed here for a weekend with a friend having previously stayed in their sister hotel in Wells. The Manor house and adjoining converted buildings allows for a quirky and very charming layout. the main road is busy but the hotel is set back and makes not impact on the hotel from a noise point of view at all. without...

Unusual restored manor house with very individual rooms giving great comfort and excellent facilities. Even free fast wifi! Restaurant really excellent and very attentive cheerful staff work hard to make your visit an enjoyable one. Handy for the town and not too far from Bath if you are driving. Good for business or leisure. Will definitely be back

Lovely room with nice china mugs for tea and coffee and a well stocked bathroom with Neals Yard bathroom products! Comfortable bed and very tasty cooked to order breakfast with quality foods. Very close to Bradford upon Avon (we walked there along the canal towpath) Definitely be back. Excellent value for money.

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
