Sadly our stay here was disappointing. The setting is good and with investment the hotel and grounds could be stunning. Unfortunately we found it to be tired and rundown with cobwebs everywhere we looked. Given the hefty price tag we had expected so much more.

There is not a bad room in the castle... I slept like a baby. The bed was the softest ever! We almost did not make breakfast. We had all the conveniences. Personal and beautiful bathroom. The bathroom had a lovely tub and shower with a towel warmer. Gas fireplace. Our own cozy love nest... They provide a tea service set... More

We stayed at Thornbury Castle for one night to celebrate our Pearl wedding anniversary and booked it purely on a recommendation from friends who had stayed late last year. From the moment we arrived we were dealt with in a warm, friendly, efficient and courteous way. Ours was a deluxe room and was near perfect. The only downside being a... More

A lot of the locals in Thornbury come to the castle to eat. The pork bon bons melted in our mouths. The whole experience was wonderful.

Helpfully clause six on the agreement was explained to me and clause seven was stricken. It is always good to ask about things you do not quite understand and negotiate something you feel more comfortable with. Hannah rang me today to make certain I was happy which so far I certainly am. I will update you later on how the... More

In all honestly extremely disappointed with Thornbury Castle. Came here to celebrate a significant birthday for a cream tea. The food we had was just pretty awful, the scones were rock hard, the sandwiches lacked flavour as did the deserts . For the money you pay I would expect all in all fantastic food, it was far from that!!!! I... More

The place to go for a once in a lifetime meal, the service is in the top range and you get to sample a few little tasters before the main meal, the menu is more than impressive.

To get the good stuff out the way – the setting is amazing. After being seated, we were give a small partridge terrine, which was pleasant. On to the food, my starter of ham hock terrine was nice, but the brioche appeared to have been toasted some time before being served and lost its crunch and just became something akin to... More

Step back in time and visit one of King Henry VIII homes. It really is a castle and you feel like royalty when you go there. The afternoon teas are lovely and in a magnificent setting. This place has to be seen to be appreciated
