Thornbury Castle was a fantastic place to stay and I highly recommend it to any one considering staying there. Beautiful grounds and a majestic castle. Rooms are breathtaking.
The finest castle hotel I've ever experienced. The 15th-century castle was updated to a top-tier hotel without detracting from its original history. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly.
Suggestion: The hotel should offer "behind-the-scenes" tours for guests who are interested in learning more about the castle.
We loved this place so much that we booked another 3 nights here. We have even lashed out and booked our last night in the "Tower" ... the fascination of staying in an actual 16th century castle is something that we as Aussies could only ever dream about!! ... the fact that this place has so much interesting history makes it even more exciting. A lovely place indeed.
The staff wrer wonderful, the food was fantastic, the rooms were incredible. It was the highlight of our trip to Enfgland. Now I know what it must feel like to be royalty.
Nothing. We loved everything.
This was a birthday surprise for my husband, and it was perfect and exceeded our expectations. Customer service before our stay was superb, and I bought vouchers for our meal and wine beforehand. Throughout our stay my husband was wished happy birthday from a number of staff, and his dessert was made into a 'Happy Birthday' one without any prompting; very thoughtful. The Audley room we stayed in was more than satisfactory, and I'm glad we didn't pay for an upgrade, there was no need. And even though we didn't have the afternoon tea, we would reccommend it as it looked superb!
The castle is the star. It has so much character. And the waiters were very friendly and very knowledgeable. Staff were excellent and made us feel very welcome. Catering was very good.
Lack of WiFi or working in-room internet was a minor issue, although a bit of a pain when you want to use your laptop to plan days out.
that i got to stay at a castle and have a fire in the bedroom
staff pleasant, room comfortable, food good, the building itself historic and beautiful - the reason we went there!
Staying in an actual castle with lots of history. We staying in a room occupied by Queen Mary. Food and atmosphere was great. Staff couldn't have been better.
No complaints at all. We stayed there 25 years ago and repeated the visit. Still great.
The room was outstandingly beatiful: you really felt like a lord in a castle
The setting was very relaxed & quiet. The grounds were very well kept. The actual castle was stunning & the original features were a definite plus. All in all a fantastic romantic getaway.
The drinks were very expensive. Quite a lot of flies in our room.
The staff were very obliging, friendly and extremely helpful! Excellent! The rooms are beautiful and the fire places give it a very cosy feel.
It is a bit rough around the edges - poor dusting, worn fittings, giving off a feel of tiredness and moderate neglect - nothing though what a bit more attention to detail and some modest investment couldn't solve. The bathrooms are a let down. It is all there but they have a depressing feel - cheap materials and finish. On the food front - nice try but not worth the £42 for two courses! Too may ingredients and it was difficult to work out what the focus of the dish was. Ston Easton Park have got it nailed food-wise - may be worth checking out,
We were upgraded to a deluxe room and it was an amazing experience. Four poster bed fit for a king, huge room at the tower, amazing luxury, medieval furniture. We had a sherry bottle awaiting on arrival.The staff were faultless, the restourant service and food were great.The library and common rooms are restored to perfection with beautiful decoration. The castle grounds and gardens were also amazing to visit, you can also have a go at crochet and archery (lots of fun). Overall highly recommended and an experience of a lifetime.
Our tower was being redecorated and the stairs had no paint on the walls, carpet or decoration, but it was a minor setback. Beware the ghost too! :)
It has a very high standard. The building is well maintained and very comfortable.The public rooms and garden are a delight,and the staff very helpfull and polite. The bed swas super comfortable.
Ahhhhh.The chief really must improve quantities. It was the same the last time that I came. The food is well cooked and inventive but the portions are miniscule. There really is no excuse for this and the days of 'fashionable tiny courses of nouvelle cuisine' well gone 20 years ago, Both my guest and I had the '3 beef'..I Had 2 pieces of beef on my plate that were ..at the most..2'' By 2''' and 1/2''think. Then the cheese...the very charming girl, carved three pieces that were ..at the most 1/8'' thick...If the size of portions was reflected in the price it would be another matter..but it is not..It is very expensive to eat at Thornbury. One expects more than this. . Regretfully it would be impossibe to reccommend that anyone ate at Thornbury, unless, that is , they were on a very rigid intake diet. Please, please, take note of this..it ruins an otherwise really delightfull experience.
