Stayed at the castle for one night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Such a beautiful place to experience well worth it. We enjoyed an afternoon tea with champagne in the library before check in which was a fantastic experience itself, gorgeous cakes and sandwiches served in beautiful surroundings by friendly and gracious staff. We were then shown to our room, the Howard which is breathtaking. So luxurious and comfortable with the biggest four poster bed I have ever seen! Our evening meal was very nice, we were quite full after the afternoon tea so went with the lounge menu but brilliant service all the same, special thanks to the couple from the Czech Republic who were so friendly and great conversation. After a fantastic nights sleep we had a full English breakfast from menu and fresh fruit from the buffet. Again great service. I cannot fault this hotel, the service and facilities are fantastic, beautiful gardens, perfect for a wedding or romantic getaway. We will definitely be returning. Collapse

A group of us went for afternoon tea to celebrate the retirement of a friend. We found the experience disappointing. There were a number of reasons for this. It was a very hot afternoon and as there was a wedding on so we were shoved in the corner of a stuffy room and not allowed to sit outside where there were plenty of tables. The service was minimal and when a mistake was made we were given the impression we were to blame when we had been absolutely clear. One of our members had a pot of tea that would not pour due to too many tea leaves and it took her 15 mins to get the attention of the waiter. The tea was far too strong with tea leaves piling up on the strainers. Sandwiches and scones were ok althought the jam was extremely runny - the selection of cakes was also disappointing nothing stood out as wow, much of it tasted artificial and cheap. Then of course it was totally overpriced for what we were given. As I work locally this was something I had been looking forward to experiencing for a long time but was a major disappointment so much so that this is the first bad review I've ever written!!

Our family of 4 (children ages 12 and 9) recently stayed for two nights in the Elizabeth Suite. Our daughter turned 9 and we celebrated her birthday here. The room was large and we had plenty of room. The food and service were amazing. We traveled from Rugby to Bristol by train and then took a taxi to the castle very easily. The first day, we explored the grounds, relaxed in the lounge, and had dinner with a celebratory cake we ordered ahead of time (delicious!!). The second day, we had breakfast at the castle, explored Thornbury Village, played at the playground, had lunch at a local pub, did archery at the castle, and enjoyed dinner again at the castle. All in all, fantastic experience! We are from USA and had such a great time exploring different parts of the U.K. Collapse

Highly recommend Thornbury Castle for a weekend get away of quiet relaxation. Staff were awesome. Walking through the gardens and the local cemetery add to the essence of history surrounding your visit.

A great opportunity to stay the night in a castle.

My wife and I stayed in one of the Deluxe Bed Chambers through their ‘Sunday Stay and Dine’ Package. Let me start off with the room… it was breath taking. First of all it is a Tudor era castle, but even so it was still over the top and super luxurious. The bathroom was exquisite. The dinner service was superb. Our server, Pedro, was particularly impressive. My wife and I were on our honeymoon but failed to pack the appropriate smart/casual attire for their dinner service (I only had comic book t-shirts!) so we were sequestered upstairs away from the other dinner guests, to not bring down the elegance. Which ended being great because it was like we had the whole upstairs too ourselves. Even as far removed from the other guests whenever we needed something Pedro was there to help. He really went above and beyond to make us feel invited and taken care of despite our poor dress attire. The breakfast service was another matter; I will leave it at the fact that there is a large difference between the dinner service and the breakfast service. This is a very beautiful castle I would love to visit again. Collapse
