We stayed here one night and it's a beautiful place. We were checked in and out by Megan, who was so friendly and welcoming. Our room was stunning with a huge four poster bed with thick velvet curtains and once inside, looking up, there's a wooden frame in squares with stars in between and I was delighted to find a light that was enough to see the stars but not enough to keep me awake. I had the best night's sleep I've ever had in a hotel bed. There were minor points that could be improved on like a wonky toilet seat and a hammock-like cobweb on the window, but all in all we loved the room. We had a walk in the gardens which were very nice but which will be gorgeous in a couple of months, and we sat in one for over an hour enjoying the sunshine, the garden and the silence except for different bird calls. Very peaceful. Dinner was fine. My duck starter was tough to cut but not to chew and my lamb main was nice. Presentation was lovely but I felt presentation won over substance and I definitely needed a dessert to be satisfied, but the chocolate dessert changed that! Being 70% cocoa (I love dark chocolate) it was both delicious and very satisfying. My main disappointment at dinner was going into what must be a very atmospheric dining room, like the rest of the castle, and sitting near an American family with two children who NEVER stopped talking and we could hear every word very very clearly. It totally ruined the atmosphere of what should have been a lovely romantic meal for two in a wonderful castle. I think I may have appreciated dinner more without their presence but of course that wasn't the fault of the hotel. Breakfast again was fine with the usual buffet. Nothing was outstanding and we had to ask for toast as it wasn't offered and my second cup of tea was scummy so I left it. Would I go again? I don't know, maybe just for the fantastic room but not for the food experience. Service in the hotel is very very good without being overbearing. Collapse

Stayed just for a night for a midweek break, great experience and when taking advantage of DB&B offer actually good value too. Got upgraded to a superior suite which was very luxurious and enormous. Entered up a winding staircase to the lounge with a real-effect fire lit on arrival – thoughtfully it is gas fired so no logs to lug around. Separate kitchen room with views over the countryside, had all the facilities which we didn’t really need but would be useful if staying longer. Huge bathroom with large bath. The shower was not the most powerful it must be said. Then wonderful bedroom, four poster bed, views of the courtyard, endless cupboard space, dressing table, TV table and so on. Despite obviously being a very old building with bare stone outer walls it was warm and cosy and you got the real castle feeling about the place. Not the best time of year to appreciate the gardens , but it allows you to see the castle and adjacent church from different angles and in season would be delightful. Dinner was across the courtyard,firstly drinks and canapés in the lounge area where you could also peruse the menu and wine list. Then through to the dining rooms for a lovely dinner. All of the dishes are thoughtfully put together and very well prepared. We had cauliflower velouté as an amuse bouche, then smoked duck and a crab ravioli starter both of which were delicious. We both had lamb as the main course , excellent meat and veg although the potato discs could have been more numerous and I am glad we ordered extra veg as well. The chocolate dessert was a good size but the star was the cheeseboard. A trolley of a dozen or so different cheeses were wheeled over. Also with it was chutneys, dried apricot, truffled honey, fig and walnut , all of which were included along with crackers and grapes. We only had three of the cheeses and that was more than enough. Breakfast was plentiful with a range of cooked options and the usual cold ones. Service was always attentive throughout, although it gets more difficult to maintain as the dining rooms get busier. Whilst not cheap on first inspection, to get any hotel room in Bristol and then two meals of this standard, would cost a similar amount. Add in the “castle” experience , being in the countryside close to plenty of attractions, no hassles with parking etc makes this in my opinion a treat well worth indulging in. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for similar offers in the future and we will be back I am sure. Collapse

Really stunning place and very historic, shame a cheap company runs this hotel, lots of shabby things about this hotel, whilst the ambiance is great just take a closer look and its a very tired hotel. poor décor and lots of things going wrong, my lights went on a off all night bringing on the emergency lighting and I complained in the morning but this was behind a gas engineers trying to inspect the place and they refused to let them do the job !! scary, not my kind of place I would stay again, its up for sale the place is and sooner some professional company takes it the better, shame on the management for a shabby broken down place. Would advise staying in a safer place and not here Collapse

We wanted to stay in a castle, and located Thornbury along our travel route. You need a car or a cab to get there; public transit was not convenient from Bath. Definitely take the historical tour from Valerie, (10 pounds) to learn about the owners--including Henry VIII. This is a Listed Level One historical property; the same designation as Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, etc. Our midweek Celebration package was a good value, and included the best dinner we ate in England. We were in the Stafford Room, which is on the ground level near the entrance. Not much view, but it had a fireplace and a huge bathroom with disabled capability. If you want Afternoon Tea, make sure to make a reservation. We weren't sure of our timing, and didn't think it would be too crowded to get in mid-week off-season. The room only had about two parties having tea, but apparently you can only get a lunch if you didn't reserve for a tea:( Recently renovated, but I recommend going soon, as the property is up for sale. I hope whomever buys it keeps it open to the public... Collapse
