Visited wiith family and friends for Afternoon Tea, where gift voucher received as an anniversary present was put to use, topping up with payment for extra people. I have lived in the area for about 25 years and until now have not visited this hotel and restaurant, but will do so again in future. Great setting and a fantastic property,... More

My little family of three, which includes myself, my husband and my son stayed at the Thornbury castle yesterday in the Duke of Chambers. The room was very spacious and well appointed. We appreciated the craftsmanship and original work with the modern restroom facility. The personnel at the reception was very friendly and even agreed to show us a few... More

It was a surprise birthday treat from my wife, and we loved the tower room. The Castle is a brilliant venue with lovely atmosphere and beautiful ambience. Our dinner, however, was a great disappointment. I decided to have the (very expensive) sirloin steak, and my wife had a cheese burger. Unfortunately, I like salt on my chips, and was amazed...

Went with mum as a birthday treat. We received a warm welcome and were allocated two lovely seats by the window in the library room. The staff were attentive and polite and ensured that our requirements were met. Plenty of tea was served. The cakes were gorgeous and the scones were crisp on the outside. It was a lovely experience.... More

As a castle stay, this bedchamber experience was more authentic, but as every nook & cranny of this place has been coverted into a guest bedroom, I can't say if everyone got the same experience; and there is not much to explore about the castle due to the amount hat has been converted to rooms. Anyway, that said, I very... More

I booked a night at Thornbury Castle as a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday. I booked through the hotel using one of their mid week stay packages which included our evening meal and a breakfast (both of which were delicious!)

My wife and I made a return visit to the castle for her birthday and it was everything we expected it to be. Service was excellent, food was delicious, and the castle and grounds were lovely. We stayed in the Duke's Bedchamber - once used by Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. Whilst I hope this doesn't reflect on the ultimate... More

Splendid food presented almost to perfection. Service immaculate, attentive, friendly and unrushed. Excellent value for money. Looking forward to our next booking in early January 2017. Many thanks, worth the trip across the bridge from Wales.
