Amazing Gem
Reviewed 4 days ago

Just back after spending 1 night to celebrate my wife’s birthday and our wedding anniversary. Booked a Deluxe Bedchamber (Beaufort) with 2 course al la carte meal and the whole experience was amazing. Massive room, with a comfy 4 poster bed and turret stairs add to the 3 experience. Evening meal was fantastic as was the breakfast. Staff attentive and service brilliant from booking in to leaving. Absolutely faultless!

Second stay was as good as our first!

This was our second stay at Thornbury, the first being in the Tower, which was fabulous. This time we had the De Clere room and it was really wonderful with the four poster bed which was so comfortable. The evening meal was excellent, all cooked perfectly, and the little Birthday chocolates were a nice touch! Breakfast was also delicious.. Thanks to Becky Brian and Pedro who were especially nice. We will definitely keep returning, to try out different rooms!

Excellent all round

We had a wonderful time, the castle and grounds were beautiful, the room was spectacular, and the 2 course dinner was superb.
Everyone was super helpful, and accommodating to our requests. Special shout out for Rose on reception who was professional, friendly, welcoming and is a real asset to the company. She checked us in and out and delivered great service both times - even ringing us to let us know when our room was ready whilst we went for a walk.
We shall be back!

Very close to perfect

A two night stay with breakfast and evening meals.
A beautiful place and the room was up its own concrete spiral staircase. However there were some issues that required maintenance. We were offered a room change but decided that they were minor and we could still enjoy our stay.
Breakfast was plentiful and a wide choice.
The evening meals started with canapés and were generally top quality.
Staff very friendly and helpful.

Luxurious Stay in a Tudor Castle
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Thornbury Castle is a fabulous place to stay for a special occasion. One gets the opportunity to stay in a wonderful, unique and historic building with its turrets, towers and beautiful stone mullion windows whilst at the same time enjoying the furnishings and comfort of a luxury hotel.

The staff are all extremely polite and helpful and the service overall is faultless. Our dinner in the restaurant was excellent, again with great service.

Highly recommend and hope to go back there again soon.
