Charlotte was amazing with me from the moment I called to enquirer right up to the moment we left. Made my proposal an easy and amazing thing to achieve. The staff were all amazing to be honest. Beautiful place. Very attentive. Charlotte even waited for me to arrive over her shift, which I thought was amazing. Massive thank you to all at Thornbury. Khye and Sonia Collapse
Henry Vlll and Anne Boleyn stayed here and I fear it might suffer the same fate......

We’ve just arrived home from spending a wonderful weekend at Thornbury Castle where I took my girlfriend away for a secret short break, in that she didn’t know the destination until we drove through the gate. From searching through the internet this location seemed perfect in that it offered luxury with the added romance of its past history. In our opinion it didn’t disappoint with the romance and history but although there is a certain amount of luxury we felt that The Crown had become somewhat tarnished over the recent years. We stayed in a luxury bedchamber in the tower which had views overlooking the entrance and gardens which was ideally situated, it also had a wonderful four poster bed which went down very well with the girlfriend although as it was so high I found the best way to get up onto it was to pretend I was back in my youth doing the Fosbury Flop over the high jump, she, the final assent of Everest. The room was massive with a fireplace to match but to be honest it did look like it could do with a lick of paint. Both taps in the bathroom basin needed you to hold the bases to stop them spinning round when turning them on or off and my girlfriend was unable to go to the toilet all weekend as the lever needed arms like Henry Vlll in his prime to give you the Full Royal Flush, not so romantic. That’s all the minor gripes out of the way as there are some very good things to mention, firstly the staff were very nice, always helpful, always polite. We had also arranged a tour of the Castle and this was done by a past member of staff, Valerie Quinn. This deserves a special mention as she made it so interesting and you could see that she was not only so passionate about the past history of the Castle but had a genuine interest in its future. My girlfriend also would like me to mention her body massage with Helen which she thoroughly enjoyed. So to recap, a wonderful place to visit but we’re both hoping there’s a happy future for the castle unlike one of it past visitors, Anne Boleyn who went on to have West Ham’s football stadium named after her........oh, and her head chopped off.

A day of feeling like Royalty

My wife and I were supposed to be at the castle a few weeks ago to celebrate her 65th birthday, but unfortunately we both took ill and had to cancell on th last minute. We still wanted to viist the castle and decided to have a belated birthday celebration there and are so glad we did. Not only is it a fabulous castle, and in a great location with amazing views and a town centre not far away, but the staff were amazing, polite and helpful, and really did make you feel you were royalty, The dinner was excellent and there was a lovely bouquet of flowers arranged on our table for my wife. Although all the staff were helpful and made you feel welcome, I must make a special mention of Jenni and Darren for their understanding of the previous cancellation and made all the arrangement for a wonderful and memorable stay in the Tower room for both of us. We will definitely return. Collapse

We stayed at the castle for one night (sadly, only one night) recently and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The weather was brilliant so we were able to spend time in the garden being looked after by the attentive and friendly staff. We were allocated 'Woodville' as my partner has mobility issues and much as he would have liked to be in the turret, there were too many stairs to negotiate - the room and bathroom were majestic. Dinner and breakfast were both excellent with plenty of choice. We would definitely stay again. Collapse

Our stay in April was my husbands and I 4th stay at Thornbury Castle. Every time we have stayed it is as wonderful as the last stay. We have stayed in 4 different deluxe chambers the Beaufort, the Howard, the Bedford and the woodville (photos attached). We start our stay with afternoon tea in the lounge or library. This is wonderful with sandwiches, scones and cakes. There is a vast choice of teas to choose from the menu that is refilled on request. After booking into the room we often walk around the gardens (weather permitting). We also visited the church which is next door and is lovely with lots of history. After getting ready for dinner in the glorious bathrooms we are shown into the library or lounge for pre dinner drinks and aperitifs. We puruse the dinner and wine menu and order when ready. We are then taken through into the dinning room. The waiters especially Pepe are wonderful. Pepe has been at Thornbury now for 42 years and enjoys it so much it shows in his care to make sure you enjoy your evening. After the wonderful dinner that is cooked to perfection with wonderful flavours especially the vegetables used from the castle gardens. You are taken back into the library or lounge for after dinner tea, coffee and chocolates. Your drinks if you have any left on the table are brought for you to finish in the library before your tea/coffee. This is true fine dining with wonderful chefs and staff. All the staff from the reception to dinner and everyone you meet while walking the grounds are so friendly and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are gorgeous all different with so much character. They have open fires which are wonderful in the cooler months. Fridges, tea and coffee etc soft bathrobes with Thornbury Castle slippers. Breakfast is buffet style for continental and service for a fully cooked. The food is wonderful and the scrambled egg I can honestly say is the best I have ever tasted. My husband loves the eggs Benedict. We are always sad when we have to leave and wish we could stay longer. Overall there is nothing I can say that is wrong or that we dislike about Thornbury Castle. We would whole heartedly recommend a stay. If you have a special occasion to celebrate or would like to surprise a loved one then this is perfect. Collapse
