Beautiful place, pleasant staff, highly over priced. Check in 4-6, check out 11AM. I expected to be able to tour the castle, and hear the history of the place. Nope. Here's your key. Here's your room. Breakfast is in the morning at 9. Gardens not impressive. But the entertainment room was fun. No Ghosts that we saw/heard.

This place was just what I wanted it to be . And even though your in a huge building with other people it still feels kinda magical and like your the only one there :) I love that you get your own key to come in and out and that there is no front desk makes it feel more intimate.... More

The care we had was great. Breakfast was not only beautiful but delicious and filling!! Can't wait to go back and see the grounds in warmer weather when the garden is in bloom. Very romantic from the time we arrived. Loved the privacy

Thornewood Castle is quite a sight to behold. But if you didn't know it was there, you would never know it was there. It doesn't sit high on a hill or all alone on acres of open property. It is smack dab in the middle of a neighborhood, which really adds to the whole experience. My wife and I visited... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and didn't want to leave. Though a large manor house, it felt very warm and comfortable. We felt right at home. The history of the building is incredible, 400-500 year old bricks and doors, and stained glass as old as the 1300s. The breakfast was outstanding, and the grounds are breathtaking. This... More

My wife and I stayed overnight here the night after we were married. We couldn't have picked a better place to spend our first night after our special day. The staff were very friendly and met our every need. Breakfast was very good and we really enjoyed looking around the entire castle and the grounds. It's amazing the history you... More

This place is stunningly beautiful! We stayed in the Casablanca room and the bed was heavenly! From the grounds, to the room continuing to the breakfast! We will be back for our one year anniversary and start a tradition for sure!

It starts with the staff. The most wonderful, friendly and inviting people. The inn itself and property is simply amazing. What a beautiful piece of old world charm . The rooms are very clean and private. The common areas are so very comfortable and filled with such wonderful pieces of a time far gone. You forget you are still in... More

It will be very hard to describe this stay, but I will try. The absolute beauty of this estate is hard to describe. All of the original woodwork, the 500 plus year old staircase and wood panels. The centuries old stained glass windows. The opulence of the ballroom and living area, plus the accomodations. We stayed in the Rose Red... More
