I’ll forever cherish my time at this historic castle. I can’t think of a single thing that could have made my stay more amazing than it was. The castle is incredible and jaw dropping from one corner to the next. The gardens are beautiful. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. The rooms were quiet and so comfortable. Matilda the castle cat was the crown jewel of the property. I had the best stay. More...

We had a wonderful two nights here. The rooms are stunning with four poster beds in each. The history behind to castle is fascinating, if you can get a historic tour with Victoria. We were recommended, our first night, to eat at a local pub, The Royal George, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our second night we dined at the Castle’s restaurant and it was amazing!!! We were treated so well and they even surprised my friend and I, who were celebrating our 50th birthdays (last year), with a fabulous desert. More...

My fiancé and I had spent a few days at a local music festival and booked to stay at Thornbury Castle on the way home for some luxury. Wow, we weren’t disappointed and we were treated so well by all the staff. Megan showed us to our room and informed us that the Castle had upgraded us due to our recent engagement ❤️ She was a lovely young woman who settled us in to our suite, and explained the layout. Our suite was amazing with beautiful period decor and had such a large comfortable 4 poster bed. Our evening meal was the best meal we have had this year and the service was exceptional (Thank-you Roberto) Breakfast was delicious and nothing was too much trouble during our stay. We really have had a wonderful stay and can’t recommend it enough. More...

When we first arrived, the receptionist was delightfully warm and welcoming, she made sure to show us around the castle before helping us to our room. The room itself was the Stafford and it was stunning! We had a fireplace, snug chairs, massive bed and my favourite part - a giant bath that could fit my 6ft+ partner in (without crushing his legs) The whole room was very clean and well decorated, we had complimentary hot / cold drinks, biscuits, robes and slippers as well as lots of bath and shower goodies. Our dinner service was flawless, they accommodated our food preferences and the food was piping hot and delivered swiftly. All the way from showing us to the lounge for drinks and then into one of the dinning halls for our meal. (Ladies, I recommend the passion fruit martini!) Best night sleep I’ve had in a while, cushions and bed were very comfy and soft. The room easily heated up in the morning once the fireplace was on again. Our breakfast was again, delicious, my partner said it was the best eggs Benedict he’s ever had. A variety of fruits / cheese / ham / cereal and pastries were available as well as the cooked breakfast menu. I would just like to say thank you to all the staff that made our visit so memorable and all the effort they went to, to make it extra special for my birthday! More...

today we were guests at a friend's wedding here and it was really lovely, the setting is beautiful and the staff attentive. I want to mention 2 in particular, Brian and the young man on reception. they organised a taxi for us for 11pm, we were staying at the nearby golf lodge. we waited over an hour in the cold for this taxi which never turned up despite several calls chasing it up, in the end Brian and the receptionist went above and beyond and dropped 7 of us in total back to the the lodge in their own cars. they didn't have to do this and we are incredibly grateful. thank you.

Thornbury Castle is just amazing. We arrived and were extremely well looked after. Our room was The Bedford which was entered via a tower staircase. The room was amazing with a very comfortable four poster bed and huge fireplace. Classical music was playing on the TV which added to the ambience. The bathroom was spotless and huge. I awoke early to the sound of the birds dawn chorus which was magical. The restaurant food was delicious at dinner and again at breakfast. The staff were all amazing so helpful and attentive. I would highly recommend a stay at this beautiful castle. More...

Joint 50th celebration for my partner and myself. The Henry suite was excellent and the staff brilliant. We stayed 2 nights with the midweek celebration package, and must say the food was sublime. Well worth the extra as 2 course menu was £42 pp if only B&B. This was included in ours, so £170 of the total cost. Wish we could have stayed longer. A break to remember for us both.

I booked to stay for my other halfs 40th, I was chuffed that the upgrade I requested was completed and we ended up in the tower room. The flowers and chocs that had been requested were waiting and drinks brought up soon afterwards. The room is amazing with stunning views and the biggest (and comfortable) bed you could ever see. The service was great, it was nice to sit in the lounge and have canapé before dinner. The couple in the same room as us were very rude to the staff about the food but they dealt with it professionally and tried to make sure it didn't affect us. The food was lovely, the venison was especially good. Breakfast was great too. We asked to leave the car on site to have a walk round thornbury the next day and reception happily obliged. Neither me or my other half wanted to drag ourselves away from the room when we left, loved every minute of the experience feels like we have spent the night in a castle and in luxury which is expectations what I hoped for I returned to the castle this weekend this propose to my other half, the staff were really helpful beforehand, Hollie helped me over the phone and by email, I travelled down the day before and they stored my proposal items and Charlotte showed me the garden and where I could propose. Everything went to plan and my other half was stunned when I took her into the gardens and asked her the question. As before the room was stunning and the food was lovely. It always feels like a special place and I never want to leave the room the next day! Thank you for your help in making my proposal everything I wanted it to be More...

Room was beautiful, staff so friendly and helpful- especially Reception ( I am so sorry - I have managed to forget his name- Darren? ) and the barman. The food was absolutely gorgeous - I have coeliac disease and sometimes get a very limited choice, but here it was the complete opposite, I was really confident that it was safe for me to eat and the food, and wine, was stunning. Had an amazing time - have already booked to come back again. Thank you all for making our first wedding anniversary so perfect. More...

Charlotte and Jennifer were a delight to deal with and I am so grateful for all there help. The castle is absolutely beautiful and I couldn't recommend it enough! Thank you so much! More...

After getting married at Thornbury Castle two years ago (which was incredible!), we returned for our wedding anniversary yesterday. We stayed in the Henry Viii suite, which is huge and opulent, with an amazing 4 poster bed, walk in wardrobe and jacuzzi bath. There was even an anniversary card waiting for us, along with a special complimentary pudding with dinner, adorned with the words 'Happy Anniversary'. Such a special experience! Our meal last night was delicious, as was the afternoon tea we decided on today. The staff are so attentive and friendly here - they really do go the extra mile to make your stay special. I cannot recommend Thornbury Castle highly enough - we will definitely be back again! Thank you for making our stay so memorable! Lizzie & Frank Armstrong More...

I was there with friends for the royal afternoon tea. The grounds are beautiful. The afternoon tea was nice but the staff were busy so waited a while for milk and the refills of the tea and coffee were slow. Was told they were understaffed. We had the wonderful experience of seeing the dungeon which was lovely. Above all a quality day out. The booking experience was fantastic. Would go again. More...

My daughter and I stayed in the Dukes bed chamber last night as a 21st birthday treat. The whole experience was fabulous, the staff were extremely attentive, pleasant and happy to help with any requests or enquiries we had. Despite being at the top end of the market (... I would imagine their usual guests are very wealthy!) they were friendly, relaxed and welcoming throughout. Pepe looked after us impeccably during dinner and the menu was delicious. It is expensive, but staying in an historic castle is not something most of us do on a regular basis! If you enjoy your history, this is a great way to celebrate a special occasion or an indulgent weekend away! It's a shame there is not more of a gift shop, stocking local history books etc, would have been nice to bring something home as a keep sake. I wouldn't hesitate to go back and stay there again, thanks for a great weekend! More...

Best night away ever! Booked as our "splurge night" during our 2 week England road trip. I'm generally a "cheap" person and it takes a lot for me to feel that something is worth the money, but our experience at Thornbury was. We were both a little hungry after dinner, due to small portions, but that is fairly common for an upscale dinner. Overall it was totally worth the money and I daydream about staying there again - someday on another adventure! More...

I'd bought a mid week overnight stay with dinner and breakfast in the Dukes Bedchamber for my partner for Christmas. The castle itself is amazing, full of history. The staff were very attentive and probably a bit too much for a mere commoner like me. I'm quite happy to carry my own beer and pour my own water at dinner. Our room was lovely, the sofa had certainly see better days but with the history of the place you sort of let it slide, like the peeling wallpaper, it's all part of the experience. I was a bit surprised to be billed almost £13 for gratuities which I can only assume is the 10% service charge added to the dinner I had already paid for. Seems a bit naughty to charge extra to be served a pre paid for meal. And to ne offered water at the dining table and then to be charged £3.75 for it is a bit cheeky too. I've just notice that the address on the bill isn't mine (my name though) so maybe I've paid someone else's tips? All in all a great experience and we did have a great time. I'm guessing the normal clientele haven few more quid than we do to spend so these little incidentals which seem a tad harsh to us are probably quite normal in the 5* world. More...

26 April 2017

Only reason I'm giving a 4 star rating instead of 5 is because I was very disappointed that the picture they show for the deluxe bedchamber with the stone walls and beamed ceiling isn't representative of all the rooms. Our room was nice but a typical wallpapered room with plain plaster ceiling and a modern bath not the clawfoot I was expecting (based on the pictures). I asked at the desk and they said you have specify when you reserve which is NOT clear on the website. Overall the castle is nice, the staff pleasant, and the food was very good, but when you have expectations of a special castle room it fell a bit short of the wow factor I was hoping for for our 25th anniversary.

Just returned from a lovely overnight stay with dinner. We were lucky enough to be upgraded free of charge on arrival - huge, comfortable, well equipped room: only criticism was hot water ran out half way through running a bath. Exceptional food and service but it's a shame there is an additional charge to the £50 a head dinner menu for vegetables and potatoes- unnecessary for something that costs pennies. Good choice of hot dishes available for breakfast. We will definitely visit again. More...

We spent the weekend at Thornbury for a relaxation. It was lovely. The food is very good and the service in the dining room exceptional. The reception staff are welcoming and helpful. We felt the drinks lounge could have been improved with more staff and more choice of alcoholic choices such as tia maria and Malibu , which are not offered. Also sweet rose wine is a favourite but not stocked. The hotel is very warm and the radiator in our room banged periodically through the night waking us. . Apart from these personal comments it was lovely. More...

This would also be a dream location for anyone in search of a wedding venue. The concierge, James, was very helpful and very pleasant. He printed out a more thorough history of the castle for me and also directions to another pub. Overall, my favorite stay in Europe so far. More...

6 November 2016

We booked to stay at Thornbury Castle a few months ago. We were very happy because they allow dogs. However it was only after we had booked it, that we saw a message to say we had to contact them regarding the dog. What the booking process failed to tell us was that the room we had selected was not suitable for dogs. We ended up having to upgrade to a deluxe room as some considerable extra money. I felt this should have been made clear at the time of booking. We loved our time at the hotel, the staff were very friendly & attentive on arrival, made a fuss of our dog & escorted us to our room. Our room was a delight, with a wonderful four poster bed. The bathroom was fabulous, bigger than some rooms we have stayed in before, it had a wonderful free standing bath, a brilliant looking walk in shower & 2 sinks, with luxury toiletries, bathrobes & slippers, however once you get past the look wow factor, I felt the bathroom let the room down. The taps on one sink leaked & there was a continuous pool of water around both the hot & cold taps, the toilet roll holder was loose on the wall, so when you tried to get the paper, the holder moved & the toilet roll would nearly fall on the floor. I have seen in other reviews that people hadn't had a good experience with the restaurant for breakfast & dinner. We only had breakfast, we were very pleased that although we weren't able to take our dog into the restaurant, we were allowed to take her into the lounge & have breakfast. It is a lovely room, we had it to ourselves & it was like having a private breakfast, we didn't mind at all. The staff were very attentive & nice. We didn't wait for food & were brought refills of coffee so no complaints there at all. I have given a 4* because of the booking issue & the bathroom, otherwise the hotel rates 5* in all other aspects. More...

24 October 2016

The Castle is everything you might hope it would be. We have a lovely deluxe bedroom with an authentic fire, nice views, good sized bathroom & an amazingly comfortable 4 poster bed! However, it does need a few minor repairs - screws hanging out of sink surround & the tap swivels every time you use it. Duvet cover had a part washed sticker on it. Tea/coffee was standard fare. Our evening meal was sublime - hats off to the chef! Staff are friendly but not as attentive as they should be when selling a luxury experience with prices to match!! Having stayed at Amberley Castle where service & food was top notch; we expected the same at Thornbury. We heard repeated apologies for delays with dinner service & breakfast service was disappointing - you shouldn't have to ask for crockery, top ups on the buffet when stocks low or attention at the table, although staff were happy to oblige! Overall we had a lovely belt stay but a little attention to detail is required with inconsistent standards in service. More...

We stayed here for our 20th anniversary June 2015 . I am a Tudor fan and to walk the grounds was breathtaking!!! Theres so much I want to say! First last year I was REAL sick I almost died But Gods Mercy kept me. I didnt have any strength to get out the bed so I started reading about the Tudor times. (over 30 books) It was like I was able to lose myself in Medieval times and forget about the pain and the future I felt i would never have. But they kept me going. So when I walked in my suite I Immediately starting crying! I thought this is where the ladies in waiting embroidered and where the courtiers played chess. etc The keys are like Dungeon keys and I Imagined The King Having to carry all those heavy keys around lol The staff were so professional and attentive. The food was delicious and the afternoon tea is one of a kind! The service is definitely 5 stars!! I must note the grounds are impeccable! You must get a history tour as well! Thank you so much for a one of a kind experience!! Thanks again for the memories!! More...

Such a stunning venue, forget your modern boutique little box bedroom hotels, the Thornbury Castle is amazing. Steeped in history, stunning food, lovely gardens and very caring, helpful and friendly staff

A truly authentic castle, attention to detail in rooms, restaurant. Sure is something I'll remember all my life, my 2 nights at Thornbury Castle in the Buckingham suite, I felt like a real princess.

My hubby arranged a surprise stay just before Christmas (even the staff kept the pretence up on our arrival when I thought we were just popping in for lunch and then moving on to a local camp site! Didn't even twig as we were given a private mini tour and up to the reveal of a beautiful four poster bedroom which had our luggage in. Fantastic service and attendance to all throughout Have to add that the food was fantastic too More...
