Staying in this hotel was like a dream. We got an amazing room with a fireplace and s kitchen. The gardens are well kept and you can spend all day walking around the town and the country side. I completely recommend it. I did not like the food though. It was too elaborated. I wish they added something simple. That... More

I recently spent three days at Thornbury Castle and loved the whole feel of the place, as well as its history. A steep stairway led to my room, the Gloucester Room, and the door opened onto a large room whose prominent feature was a magnificent Oriel window overlooking the Tudor gardens and the nearby church. The bed was large and... More

This was a romantic break for my wife to thank her for putting up with me during the previous three months. I wanted something with a "wow" factor and this property provided buckets full of "wow". An amazing Tudor Castle with great service, huge rooms and great food. We chose the romantic break option which included a bottle of champagne... More

I am an avid history buff so my wonderful fiancé booked a night at the castle during our vacation in England. Let me just say that I was thankful that we didn't stay here the first night because every other place we stayed failed in comparison! Of course you are staying in a castle so the ambiance and architecture are... More

i booked two rooms for an overnight stay, one for me and one for my parents. We stayed in rooms across the tower from each other (the Howard and Plantagenet) which was close enough to be easily convenient to meet for breakfast and dinner but separate enough for privacy. The website doesn't do justice to the rooms. They were lovely.... More

I booked two days here as birthday surprise for my partner. It was perfect from the beginning to the end. The reception team had been in contact the week before to ask if we had any special requests and made one great suggestion for a local historian to take us around the castle and grounds (for a small fee) which...

Hi Sarah, Your comment reading 'All in all we felt completely at home and wonderfully cared for during our two days at the hotel' is just such a pleasure to read. The main focus point of the company as a whole is to ensure that our Guests experience a 'home away from home' atmosphere. I am so thrilled that we... More

Visited UK from US and stayed here one night on a whim, arrived close to dinner time and left the next am after breakfast so we did not make use of everything this hotel had to offer. Amazing castle and setting, rooms well equipped (ours had a full kitchen but we did not need it). Very accomodating with extra beds... More

My 4 children surprised me with a night away with my husband, to celebrate a monumental birthday. We were in the Eleanor room. The room was very comfy. The food was lovely, the chef even piped happy birthday on my dessert plate. At times service was a little slow but the friendly staff made up for it. We were meant... More

I hate to post a negative review (as can be seen from my other reviews), but felt compelled to share the negative experience we had at Thornbury Castle. I appreciate that the majority of reviews are good for this hotel and cannot explain this difference as compared with our own experience, although I can guarantee it was the worst hotel... More

From the moment we were greeted at the reception, we were treated like honored guests. Entering our room, the soft background music and fireplace warmly invited us in. There are not words grand enough to describe our accomodations, walks through the grounds, and dining experience. The town of Thornbury was quite quaint and the friendly townspeople added to the experience.... More
