The room was nice but small considering we were paying some 240 pounds a night for room and breakfast it was a bit of a let-down-- no stone walls, the interior of our room was rather pub-like. My wife spent half the night fuming at the poor wifi connection but we appreciated the grounds and the great staff. The common areas are really quite nice. I guess we should have paid a bit more for a better room but booked via a popular booking site and didn't see photos of our room-- I think we had the only white plaster room in the place! We also did appreciate the nice, clean, spacious bathroom with tub, but, for the money it just was a bit modest in size. It will scratch your itch to stay in a castle but make sure you know your room beforehand. Collapse

I held a champagne reception followed by a birthday dinner party in the Baron's Sitting Room. Without exception my 20 friends and family all said it was sensational. The seven course dinner was delicious and beautifully presented and all the wines were fantastic. I couldn't fault the arrangements and the service from all the staff was perfection. The tea that was provided on our arrival was wonderful - all the cakes and pastries were made in the Castle's our kitchen, The scones, jam and cream were one of the best I have tasted. The breakfast is cooked to order - a very refreshing change to having to help yourself from a buffet. I had a great room with an extremely comfortable four posted bed. My friends loved their rooms and couldn't stop talking about them. In all it was a memorable stay at an exceptional venue. Collapse

I decided that I wanted somewhere special for our 10th Wedding anniversary. The Castle ticked all the boxes when I booked. I had Emailed ahead and ordered some flowers and asked for a note to be left as well. The Wife had no idea of where she was staying and when we turned into the drive her breath was taken away with the majestic building. (shame about the scaffolding but its old) When we arrived we were greeted by a very polite and charming Darren on reception. We were also then informed that we had been upgraded from our deluxe room to a suite. That was a lovely touch and made the wife very happy. We were taken to our room and up the very old sprial stone staircase into a loft suite. Low beams, warm, very big and comfy bed. Rolltop bath, underfloor heating in the batroom, massive shower. All very nice. Personally i would have preferred more of a castle type room rather than a wooden loft style, however the wife was more than happy and thats what matters. So far then, beautiful location, nice room, upgrade all is going well. Went down for dinner and were seated in the lounge, this is where the stay started to dip. We were lucky to get a seat by the fire, lovely, but it was like a library in the room. Everyone whispering as you could hear others conversations, (could use some background music to suit the atmosphere) The aperitifs that appeared were a nice touch but not to our taste. We ordered from a menu that was limited on choice and printed by a printer that clearly needed more ink. We were then taken into the room and sat near the fire again, which was lucky as the room was very cold. The food we ordered was brought out and to be fair it was what we expected, very nice, but still big plates with small portions. I get its fine dining but the service was not fine dining at all. The meals were not "announced" so i had forgotten what some of the "fine" bits were. The staff hung around the tables and seemed to be checking if we were done. This was not silver service and it so needed that little bit more. The staff were lovely and the food was lovely, it just needed brining together considering the price being charged and the expectation. The rest of the night was lovely and had a great nights sleep. Great shower/bath the next morning and then down for breakfast. This was average really, limited choice of a cold buffet and the cooked was again big plate small portion. I wasnt expecting a gut buster but it was average food dressed up. We also like some others on here tried to get a second round of toast but gave up. To sum up it is a beautiful castle, great staff, great location but average dining experience. Would i recommend it? Yes and i already have. The wife loved it, magical experience. I hope to go back but will check out the lovely village for dinner. Collapse

One night stay at Thornbury Castle left me perplexed. Beautiful location and different as the rooms were in the original castle but there were problems. I had the worst night sleep for a long time because of the poor bed. This was a typical 2 singles pushed togetehr one duvet etc - however i rolled into the middle as the mattress was not great (on either bed). Despite alerting the hotel they did zero to make me feel good about this visit - npo "we will upgrade you next time etc" big fat zero. This review could have been different however they just dismissed it! I left feeling tired and not wanting to come back. Staff need to get better and complaint management handled better if you want people to return. Some of the common areas were dirty and also the downstairs toilet facilities with dead flies etc - not nice! Also one of the couches in the drawing room was past its sell by date which again was disappointing! Also a sharp practice of charging for a late check out - considering £200 was spent two nights on the trot we were not skimping and I don't want to pay £100 to check out at 13:00! Also I would say to the hotel "please train your staff to answer questions about the castle and its history - you will get people asking!" Collapse

My mother had ALWAYS wanted to stay overnight in a real castle. After much consideration, we decided on Thornbury, and we were not disappointed. We stayed in the Anne Boleyn room, which was prepared beautifully for our arrival. The fireplace was lit, and there was some sherry (free) available in a crystal decanter in the room, to warm your bones. The bed was immense, and there was a huge window overlooking the gardens, and church in the background. The restroom was exquisite, with a window in the shape of a cross set in two foot thick walls. All of the finishing touches were present, and much appreciated. Those would include: robes, house slippers, coffee/ tea, thick towels, thick carpeting, beautiful tapestries, and a warm, comfortable bed. We did ask for, and take, the tour with Valerie, which was outstanding. She's a former employee, and she's the one they call when someone asks about the history of Thornbury. We also walked thru and around all the gardens, as well as the Thornbury church, which is beautiful. We had drinks in the library, and dinner in the restaurant. We did find the portions to be small, but after we ate all the courses, we were full enough. We also had breakfast in the morning in the restaurant, and it was quite nice. The windows and lighting fixtures are very interesting, along with the loft for musicians. Be sure and check out all the little details, because they're noteworthy and unusual. This castle is a definite MUST DO. Collapse
