Staying in a real Castle? What could be better for our 3rd wedding anniversary? Well as it turns out, quite a lot actually. Having paid £455.00 for a one night stay in a Suite at Thornbury Castle the anticipation as we drove through the gates towards the imposing arched entrance was almost to much to bear. However, that exciting anticipation... More

I have stayed at this property multiple times and have been very happy here. On this occasion I was celebrating my wedding anniversary and upgraded to the Woodville room as I needed a ground floor room due to medical reasons. This room was lovely except for facing the main parking lot and losing cable service each evening "because of the... More

A unique place to stay and relax and take in the history. Wonderfully atmospheric bedrooms and, if the weather permits, sitting in the walled gardens is not only a pleasure but evocative of ages gone by. The history tour with Valerie was well worth doing (you have to ask at reception in advance if she is available, £10pp). For all... More

The Castle is idyllic, the staff very attentive and the food is superb. At the same rates that you would spend for a quality hotel, yet much more value. All this surrounded by the splendor of an authentic castle. This is a a memory for a lifetime. Great for couples or families. Don't miss it !

We stayed at Thornbury Castle for one night for our anniversary weekend away with my daughter and her partner. This is a very special hotel! We stayed in the Gatehouse which has two bedrooms, a lounge and a well equipped kitchen. Drinks in the drawing room followed by a stunning meal in the restaurant and coffee in the library made...

Stayed here one night whilst attending a wedding at the Castle. We stayed in the Pembroke Suite which was very nice, comfortable and clean. But be aware that access is via 2 narrow winding staircases. I would say the outstanding feature of the suite is the " Throne " in the bathroom ( see picture ), which also includes a... More

Had a wonderful two night break away for our Silver wedding Anniversary on the 17th and 18th August. Stayed in the Dukes Bed Chamber. The castle is full of history and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Staff were attentive and very pleasant and the food was excellent. Service was slow on the first night but the staff accepted this and... More

An amazing stay. Staff were very attentive, food excellent and Tudor room amazing - so much character. We particularly enjoyed wondering around the ruins and then taking afternoon in the gardens.

A wonderful ancient castle with some amazing features, next to a splendid church in a scenic location. Sympathetically modernised but mostly unspoilt with features that are quite unique from my experience of castles and ancient buildings.

Had a lovely afternoon tea here recently. Sat in the library/lounge area because of the weather but seated outside in the gardens would be nice on a sunny day. Plenty of tea and hot water, home baked scones and cakes and lots of cream and jam too. Even offered a box to take away what we could not manage, which... More
