I stayed here while on a business trip in the bristol area. The price I got was not much more than some chain hotel like hilton and what a difference there was. I am already looking forward to my next stay.
the castle is totally authentic - sometimes places like this look nice but around the back there's some ugly concrete box with another 50 bedrooms. At thornbury castle all the rooms are in the castle and all seem a little different to one another.
I had a high room overlooking the walled garden and church. it was peaceful (no traffic noise or noise from the other rooms) and the room itself quite big. The stairs were really steep to it though and even I had to get help with my suitcase.
Breakfast was wonderful. a big choice of cold things plus cooked to order english breakfast.
perhaps some of the other reviewers are on more of a heritage holiday and a bit more critical of where they are staying but comparing this to the faceless box I would have been in at travelodge or hilton then it was wonderful to stay here.
I would love to take my girlfriend here although that pushes up the price somewhat and perhaps there i'd be reluctant to pay 200 pounds a night for a double room.
I did ask the prices in the restaurant and one set menu was 65 pounds. being on a budget (and fixed daily allowance) I had my dinner at pizza hut at cribbs causeway shopping mall for 4 pounds all in, but as a solo traveller on business i'm not really interested in long drawn out dinners, no matter how good.
