This is a very special place for a special occasion or just to relax and treat yourself to a Royal experience. So evocative with its history - take the tour. We have been coming here off and on for about 20 years and always default to the castle for special occasions with family and friends. The staff are brilliant and...

This was the fourth visit for afternoon tea recently....Santos and his team could not have been more welcoming. They really made us feel special and ensured that every aspect was to our exacting requirements. We had a delicious afternoon tea. Full marks to the receptionist and those who tended so professionally but Santos (from Portugal) was simply outstanding!

I stayed at Thornbury Castle twice..once for a week in 2014 and our first time was 2013. I've always wanted to spend Christmas at the castle, because I know they do an all inclusive type of event. This year I was lucky enough to do so. I'm always a little nervous, that my return visit won't be as good...but no...

Had Christmas day lunch with two friends. The Tudor room was arranged so that there was plenty of space between other tables but not so far apart that we felt isolated. The décor was Christmassy without being overdone. The staff were friendly and efficient and the food was excellent.

I really had high expectations regarding this visit. My wife and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary and I wanted it to be perfect. It exceeded our expectations in every way.

Enjoyed a fabulous winter night in the castle. Our room had 4-poster bed, and lovely open (real flame gas) fire in fire basket in the wonderful stone fireplace in the room - we didn't want to leave the wonderful cosiness of our room all stay. Venture out, we did, though, as the town of Thornbury is a short stroll away,...

If a grand atmosphere and bags of history are what you're after here, you've come to the right place. We have been before, including to the hotel but this was a first visit for the five children /grandchildren. They enjoyed the setting and small dining rooms, not too daunting. The drinks were a bit slow coming out before we went...

This is probably the best room we have ever stayed in and the rest of the hotel is lovely too. It oozes character and warmth with lots of history thrown in.

We enjoyed the Dukes Bedchamber experience to be able to spend the night in the room where Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn also stayed.

Thoroughly enjoyed a recent visit for a birthday treat. We were upgraded on arrival which was a lovely surprise and the room was superb with the most amazing views of the church and old gardens.
