This is an old castle near Bristol and is charming in every detail. It is elegant and well appointed. The staff are friendly and attentive. The restaurant is lovely and the food is superb. Warmly recommend it.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

My family and I stayed in one of the towers. We had two rooms and availed ourselves of every meal served. The entire experience was so terrific we are doing it again this summer. The sherry was an exquisite touch and shared by all!

“Fantastic 11/10”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for my wife's 40th Birthday and had an absolutely fantastic break. The customer service is second to none and the food was excellent. A charming castle that has been sympathetically turned into a charming hotel. Staying here again would be an absolute pleasure.

“Luxury in Thornbury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

We spent two nights with friends to celebrate our Golden Weddings and it was a very special stay. We booked through Secret Escapes but we were certainly not given the cheapest option. Our friends were in rooms nearby and both the rooms were excellent with massive four poster beds and every luxury including sherry (a goo amount too!) and Elemis toiletries.
The breakfasts were wonderful - the lightest waffles you can imagine. Dinners were generally good although my steak was not good but it was complimented - you can't ask for more!
It is a bit of a sham because it was virtually ruined and then rebuilt but you would never know. There is a real sense of living in the best of England's splendid past but with the addition of splendid bathroom facilities. I would love to return to see what the other rooms are like!
