The main reason for my low rating of this castle is the extortionate cost. The Tower room itself has much potential and history, but that alone cannot warrant spending nearly £700 for one night. Spending this amount I naturally thought that we were in for an ultimate experience, but sadly I spent a sleepless night in the huge bed (2 beds actually pushed together with a grubby stained coverlet) feeling a fool and that I had been had. The location is beautiful and the castle impressive. but soon I began to notice some of the shabby detail. We had a walk around the grounds which are fine but not as well maintained as I had expected, particularly the paths around the main sitting out area. We were asked to come down to dinner a little earlier for canapés. What a nice surprise. However, we wanted to order a couple of glasses of wine to have with our canapés but there were no available wine lists. So we sat for a long time without a drink until one of the waiters recited the white wine by the glass and we had to make an impetuous decisions would rather have mulled over a wine list. Dinner was a huge disappointment for both of us. Staff were very pleasant but food poor. I had the crab ravioli which was covered in a thick glupy white sauce and had no flavour, followed by over salted fish which I couldn't eat and a chocolate pudding which was quite non descript in flavour. My husband had the lamb which was not as tender as you would expect. Coffee in the lounge was like dishwater; it took three attempts to get a reasonable cup. I was so embarrassed as the waiter told me in front of everyone that I should have said at the beginning that I like strong coffee. The point is I like coffee the way I get it at every other coffee house I go to. I have never had such poor weak quality. I would be very surprised if anyone thought the coffee is acceptable. Breakfast was nice. All computers were down so I couldn't check out properly. I got a reduction on the bill due to my food complaint, but to be honest it was not ever going to be enough as I couldn't wait to get away. You actually couldn't pay me to visit again. All very sad. What a shame. Collapse

Stayed for dinner, b&b for my husbands birthday. Nothing bad to say. The room was amazing, lovely food with good service. Everywhere feels really cozy despite the size of the rooms. Enjoyed sitting in the bar/lounge for pre/post dinner drinks. I bet the gardens look even better once the roses are out. I have already recommended Thornbury Castle to friends and family who want to enjoy a special occasion. Collapse

Stayed in the Tower Room; 76 stairs to the top, but not as bad as it sounds (and I'm quite heavy and out of shape). Received help taking up our luggage though. We were not disappointed in the room. Pictures do not do this place justice. The bed is the size of two kings, the working fireplace was maybe 6 feet across, and we had views of the vineyard, river, and cathedral from our room. The bathroom was huge as well. It was well appointed, and luxurious. Robes and keepsake slippers provided. A perfect combination of restoration and function. The toilet was a throne, LOL! The grounds were well kept and romantic as could possibly be (croquet, hidden gardens, statue, ruins, flowers, flowers, flowers). The food was fresh and looked beautiful. Breakfast was excellent, but dinner was so/so. You can order a basket lunch to take a picnic. Staff go out of their way to treat you like royalty. The only negative was that we ordered deep tissue massages to our room from a local venue, but were very disappointed in the quality. May be a personal preference issue? Not the castles responsibility. Can't wait to return! Collapse
Delightful Cream Tea

Definitely worth a visit. You'll need to book in advance for a table for a cream tea. It's pricey, but worth it. Quality food, sophisticated ambience and excellent service. The grounds and gardens are pretty and worth a wander.

Fabulous service and food. Dinners were wonderful and we can't say enough about our charming and professional waiters. Make sure you go on the historic tour. Our guide had a wealth of knowledge and lots of her own personal memories to share. She is a retired long time employee. We enjoyed our standard room. Linens and toiletries were lovely and we had plenty of space but I think we might upgrade our room next time to really feel like a king and queen . Collapse
