We had the Royal high tea at the castle on Sunday (the royal meant that we had a glass of shampo with the high tea.) Tea is served in one of 2 interconnected lounges.we passed through one lounge with the remains of a fire into the other loung with no fire,our small table was in a window alcove with 2 large comfortable high chairs ,unfortunately the alcove was rather small and we could not turn both chairs to properly to face the table which made eating a bit of a challenge.The tea was served as per normal for these events on a 3 tiered cake stand and consisted of a tier of reasonabley well made sandwich’s with a good variation of fillings on fresh bread.Next tier up we’re the scones which could have benefited from a few more minutes in the oven complete with some clotted cream and only one choise of jam.Top tier some fancy cakes which were reasonably nice. All in all the food was acceptable but the overall impression of the place was how cold and austere the place was this was compounded by the fact that we were sitting in an alcove of about 15ft high single glass windows so there was a constant cold downdraft.In other places we have visited they had a pianist or someone playing the harp to give the place some different feeling to the super quiet feel here.All in all not bad but I wouldn’t rush back Ij bristol Collapse

The only word to describe this hotel is superb. From the initial drive onto the grounds, through to reception and the room the venue is outstanding. The lounge area and the dining room continue to make the stay first class and the food is amazing. Service at all times was first class and special mention to Jan and Lanka who served our food and drink and added to the experience. Will definitely visit again. Thank you so much. Collapse

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 1 night in February 2018 to celebrate Valentine's Day. The hotel/restaurant is inside Thornbury Castle, which is a very unique setting. I was drawn to the hotel as it is dog friendly. The staff were incredibly welcoming from the moment we arrived, and were very friendly and accommodating with our dog. We were even allowed to have dinner in the lounge with our dog, so we didn't have to leave him in the room. Dogs are allowed everywhere in the castle except the main restaurant. I also booked a tour of the hotel with a local historian (through reception) which was very interesting and informative, as you see the hotel in a different light. I would recommend this if you are interested in the history of the castle. We stayed in a deluxe bed chamber and we were given the Stafford Room which is on the ground floor and opens onto the courtyard, which was very useful with our dog. The room was absolutely beautiful with a large bed and a stunning bathroom. Dinner was fantastic quality and a reasonable price (we ordered from the lounge menu). The waiter was extremely attentive to our every need. Breakfast was equally good quality with plenty of choice. We walked around the gardens, but unfortunately it was a damp grey day when we were there, but I'm sure they are stunning in the Spring/Summer time. During our stay all of the staff we met were so friendly and helpful, answering any questions we had and always had a smile on their faces. I would highly recommend this hotel. Collapse

This was my third visit to the castle in 18 months and like the very first time it is a fabulous experience. I brought my friend who is in the early stages of her first pregnancy and I wanted to treat her to something very special. She was not disappointed in fact we ‘made a memory’ we will both treasure forever. The castle it’s creates an ambiance of peace, security, opulence. The staff are trained to deliver to excellence, i did notice their was quite a few new faces (all lovely) but it was great for continuity and that sense of familiarity to be greated by Darren on reception, he is a big asset to the castle because of his excellent customer service skills, his attention to detail and his warm and positive approach. Our room was Woodstock this time and it was simply divine. The food in the restaurant at evening meal and breakfast was very special. Compliments to the chef and his waiting team. I can’t wait to return again in the near future and have no hesitation in HIGHLY RECCOMENDING the Thornbury Castle experience. Cinderella Collapse

The review of our first visit to the Thornbury Castle won't be on Tripadvisor... but the hotel, and dining room were much as we remember them 25 years ago. Not surprising, for a place that is about 500 years old since it was first built (although there have been some substantial renovations starting in the Victorian era, and some other efforts to keep things like the bathrooms and heating systems quite modern/functional). This time we were ushered into a massive suite, the Portlethen, with tapestries on the wall, four-poster bed, a well-equipped kitchen, and more closet and wardrobe space than in many houses. Perhaps the best experience is rolling downstairs for pre-dinner drinks in the lounge before dinner... and the menu plus the dinner experience were top-notch. The Thornbury Castle does not disappoint! Collapse
