“Perfect venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

We had our graduation ball in the lakeside marquee. It was a stunning venue, fantastic service and perfect in every way. It was the perfect size for our guest list of 360 people, and everyone had a fantastic time. The venue hire was expensive, but justifiably so. The only thing to watch out for is that they will charge for all the extras e.g table cloths, table number holders etc, so be clear on what will cost you extra from the beginning. Would definitely recommend it though.

We held our Graduation Ball in the Lakeside marquee which is just the most incredible location. Once you've seen that marquee you could never go anywhere else!!!!!! All the staff I dealt with were wonderful, an event planner is assigned to you and the venue also has caterers, DJs etc that they like you to use; all of which I was very impressed with.
We stayed in the Trainers Annexe which was expectedly old fashioned but did lack a bit of charm. Beds were comfy with nice towels and linen, but rooms really need to have Wi-fi these days, ( we had no time to watch TV but other people would find it annoying I think) particularly for what they charge for the rooms. I would absolutely recommend Thornton Manor as a venue; but the rooms really need to be updated.

Attended a wedding recently. Stayed at 'gardeners annex'. The actual wedding venue was beautiful and the service was very good. Accommodation was very disappointing. It was very basic. No TV, no wi-fi. There was bread & butter etc. for a self-breakfast but no toaster. The area was poorly lit when we got back from the event at night and was unsafe.The value for money for the room was zero. I would not recommend the 'garderners' annex' to anybody.

We stayed here for a wedding, which we enjoyed very much. It is a very grand venue.

The room was on the small side, but clean and tidy. Unfortunately though, we had no hot water on the morning after the wedding which was a bit of a shock! We also had to pay a deposit in order to have a key for our room, otherwise it would have been left unlocked - I found this a rather strange policy.

As the rooms were, in our opinion, very expensive, these issues were keenly felt. If you are paying a lot of money to stay there, the least you can expect is a secure room and a hot shower!

My son got married here on June 29th it was a truly wonderful day, Fantastic food and service a warm friendly welcome.
We stayed over for one night and found the room a bit disappointing, no TV, wifi, kettle and no breakfast included in the price. No hot water in the evening and again in the morning because the boiler was off and it took nearly an hour to heat up.
But overall a very good place to have a wedding.

We would like to say a big thank you to Philip,Diane and all the staff at Thornton manor for making our wedding at the thatched & waterside pavilion the most amazing day. The venue and setting was absolutely stunning and staff so helpful. It was a dream come true.

My husband and I got married here in May and what a wonderful day it was, it was a truly magical day from start to finish! The staff are exceptional and took care of everything for us, We can not fault anything, we were made to feel so special and welcome. We booked the Manor House as I fell in love with it as soon as I seen it, I knew we wouldn't get married anywhere else as there isn't anywhere else that comes close. The House is spectacular, such a beautiful setting for a beautiful day, Phillip and Dianne helped us every step of the way, we had to rearrange our wedding a couple of times due to our circumstances changing but Phillip and Dianne supported us through it all to which we are extremely grateful! We used Anne Wilson for our catering again exceptional service, all the guests said what an amazing day it was and a stunning venue, it was perfect in every way. We went for a walk around the grounds the following morning it was breathtaking! (this I would recommend doing on the day with the photographer!) You can appreciate the amount of hard work that is required to keeping the whole venue looking spectacular, well done everyone you all do a fabulous job, and thank you all so much for making our day so special and memorable.
