Every dream of staying in a castle, but are afraid it won't meet your expectations? That's how I felt before staying at Thornbury. I went into it with a list of expectations. It met and exceeded them. It was exactly what I thought a castle experience would be. From the gorgeous rooms, to the beautiful grounds and gardens, to the... More

I booked a deluxe room with dinner bed and breakfast for a surprise birthday treat and it really was very up and down. Having read reviews about service I thought I would book a stay nonetheless! The reviews were right, sadly... Pluses: Amazing rooms (put in a request for two different rooms, got neither, fair enough), spacious, clean, excellently decorated.... More

This place is fantastic. A once in a lifetime experience. We stayed in the Howard Room. Everything was perfect. The attention to detail was extremely impressive right down to the ironing board in the room and the toilet paper with a royal print! Every last member of the staff was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. We had dinner one night at... More

We loved staying in this real Castle. The room was as regal as we expected with luxurious medieval style decor. Loved the complementary coffee, hot chocolate and shortbread biscuits with even a little sherry for a nightcap. The breakfast provided was perfect and the staff were all so obliging and happy in fact every member of the staff gave a... More

Took my husband here as a surprise treat for his 50th. If it was good enough for Henry, it was good enough for him! The history and setting makes it wonderfully atmospheric. Our room was spacious and in keeping with the hotels character. Everything about it made our stay feel special, and our evening meal was incredible. Even my plain,... More

We stayed for our 20th Wedding Anniversary after a resent trip in Dubai so wanted something completely different. We took my daughters due to one’s Tudor interest – even rejecting the Castle's more appropriately Gate house as it was too Victorian when addressing booking. On arrival, we were given a Suite that was built no more than 20 years ago.... More

Thank you for your positive and constructive comments regarding your recent stay with us. I am sorry we were unable to accommodate you in one of the older style rooms in the Castle, we actually only have 1 suite that has a more modern feel to it throughout the whole Castle. Please contact me directly should you wish to return,... More

I stayed here with my Dad, Brother & Sister for one night at the end of June. Being history buff's, we were all blown away with the opportunity to stay the night in an actual Castle that King Henry VIII & Anne Boleyn stayed in! (They stayed for ten days once). That being said, the experience was everything we had... More

We celebrated a wedding anniversary here in July 2014 The room was in poor shape ,peeling paint ,scuffed war paper and tired carpet .The linen ,though , was a delight . The service at dinner was appallingly slow, the glass of white wine served was not what had been requested ,both of which were irritating but what tipped the balance... More

We stayed for 2 nights and we wished we could stay longer. Thornbury castle is a magical place, so peaceful and calming. The staff we wonderful and helpful, we got this beautiful room, with a view of the courtyard and church nestled in behind. We stayed in Mary the 1st room and it's exceeded our expectations!!
