Tudor and Lucy Hopkins own and manage The Moonraker with help from a brilliant team and their dog Camber.
They bought the hotel in July 2013. Tudor has worked in a number of 5 star hotels in London including The Connaught, Grosvenor House, The Leonard and Browns Hotel. In June 2013 he sold his previous hotel, The Gallivant on the East Sussex coast, having transformed it from a dusty dated hotel to a beachy nautical haven voted one of the UK’s top coastal hotels.
His wife Lucy had a career in environmental behaviour change and was working for the not-for-profit company WRAP, before taking on The Moonraker. Lucy creates drawings and prints used on the hotel materials including the pictures used in the hotel directory.
They have recently purchase The White Hart Hotel (September 2015) in the City of Wells in Somerset. Located just 40 minutes drive from The Moonraker this 16th century coaching inn is in the heart of England’s smallest city just a few steps from the famous cathedral
