We stayed at this hotel as a special treat for our first wedding anniversary and because i was eight months pregnant it maybe some time till we spend this sort of money on one night again!!
The rooms are large and full of character. We were in our own tower with a huge four poster bed and amazing ornate ceilings. Bizzarely, although it was September and quite warm the fire was on full flow when we were shown to our room, consequently it was far too hot in the room. We could never get the fire to turn off completely (it was a fake log fire and it always had the pliot light on) and spent the night with all the windows open and the fan on full. The bathroom is not horrific but is in urgent need of some attention as there is a different between old and full of character and just down right tired.
Despite this, it was still an amazing stay. The atmosphere of the castle is magical and the staff are really helpful and polite without being impersonal. Some parts of the castle could do with some TLC to make it even better.
The food in the restaurant was amazing. I was concern when reading the menu that it would be abit too fussy but it really wasn't. Every single mouthful was gorgeous. They even took the time to write happy anniversary on our dessert!! I would also recommend the Thornbury Castle wine made from grapes on the grounds, as it was easy to drink and went well with the food.
The grounds are nice to walk around after dinner and it often feels like you are the only person wandering around in your own castle! It has an exclusive feel without being unfriendly.
It is a very expensive stay but it is also a very unique experience with amazing service and food and is therefore worth the effort.
