My entire stay was amazing.
Lovely looking room with lit fire and sherry on arrival. Helpful staff , ambience overall wonderful. Very tasty breakfast with lots of choice.
Lighting in room was very poor. Two lightbulbs had gone. The four poster bed although having a very comfortable mattress and lovely duvets was too small. Pressure in shower almost non existent and shower mat did not fit.
Everything....service, rooms, decor, breakfast
The ambience, a lovely castle even if not completely restored, staff were really friendly
A lot of stairs, not suitable for disabled, drinks way too expensive, a large glass of wine £9, A bottle of water with our meal was charged at £3.75, although complimentary in the rooms Bed was very comfortable but spoilt by being so hot. Breakfast service on our second day was slow had to find the waiter to order, and when it arrived the sausage not cooked enough
it was amazing out of this world a dream come true when I was younger I read story books about castles and dressing up as the queen and 45yrs later there I was staying in my castle my dream come true thanks kim penney x

Lead of kettle didn't reach the plug unless on floor!
The service, food and surroundings.
Most things. It really is a great place, we were greeted warmly by the chap on reception and giving many pointers on where to go for food,(lovely small town just 5 mins from the grounds), should we not wish to dine at the castle. The room was just amazing, we opened the door to find the fire burning and complimentary sherry. The bed was big and very comfortable and the fair sized bathroom was off the main room through a low old stone arch! The grounds are lovely and well worth exploring.
Breakfast, staff struggled to get the basics right on second day when busy, be prepared to wait for service.
Beautiful REAL castle with great history. Fantastic rooms-sorry- Bed Chambers, with names instead of numbers. Well-equipped and lovely bathroom products. Extremely friendly helpful staff. Beautiful grounds/setting. 1/2 hour from Bath
The worst thing I can think of to say is that the bed chamber was too hot when we arrived as the fire and the radiators were on full!- SOLVED by turning off both and opening a window!!!
Everyone made us so welcome. And really made our Ruby Wedding Anniversary celebrations with our children and grandchildren; who came to join us for an evening meal and celebration so very special. The upgrade to the Duke's bedchamber famed for where King Henry and Queen Anne Bolyn stayed was a fantastic surprise and a wonderful gift from from the Castle staff.
There is nothing to dislike at this magnificent venue
Fantastic nights stay in a wonderful castle prior to a visit to Bristol. Room we stayed in was a 2 room (large living and bedroom) with gas fire and kitchen area. Staff very friendly and helpful and evening meal in the restaurant was amazing. Would highly recommend this castle for a break
The history, great staff, wonderful room, large beautiful bathroom, amazing dinner, beautiful grounds, courtesy sherry in our room and amazingly comfortable bed.
Nothing. It was our most memorable evening in a hotel.
Liked the whole experience
The room, absolutely superb, with views over the garden & courtyard
Lack of choice on the evening meal, took an hour to serve breakfast on our first morning, didn't get the simple things right when taking our orders for breakfast (both mornings)
dinner was excellent and the service faultless breakfast less so
as a special treat we booked a suite, big mistake. The room was dated and charmless, frankly it needed a make over. Peeling paper and dirty carpets are not 5*. We changed rooms after a heated discussion and left disappointed early next morning. The young staff were inexperienced and there was no duty manager available to talk to. The second room had been refurbished but red carpet and purple crushed velvet chairs hardly made it easy on the eye together with a brown checked sofa, flowered cushions and a patterned frieze sleeping was difficult.
the history,the surroundings and the atmosphere was all in keeping with the experience.
could not buy any book on the history of the castle.
history, castle itself
kind of stuffy atmosphere, staff needs to loosen up, food portions terrible (3 tortellini!!)
The service was amazing and very genuine. Breakfast was outstanding.
Some more history on the venue would have been good. Perhaps even a short tour. It's got an amazing past and feel like we didn't quite appreciate the story the castle could tell the visitors. Only other suggestion is a selection of non-feather pillows.
Love the Tudor castle
We thought the setting and castle were idyllic, plunging us back in time in a very real way. The helpfulness and friendly treatment by the delightful staff enhanced our stay immeasurably. While maintaining Tudor authenticity the castle has been discreetly modernised to a high standard the rooms being comfortable and the bed ensuring a sound night's sleep. We were also able to enjoy walks in the surrounding countryside and got more of a flavour of what it must have been like to live there in 16th century.
The only negative factor of this lovely experience was this: in all the public rooms there was piped music. Granted, it was suitably muted, however, it jarred enormously with the authenticity of the surroundings and the quiet elegance of the stately rooms. Obviously pleasing everyone's musical taste is not possible, but I feel that popular music, some of it vocal, was not the correct choice. It did not have to be Mediaeval or Baroque, but more evocative of the age the Castle is set in. Music appeals to the deeper side of the individual, and here unfortunately it proved invasive. In fact, is there a need for music when the very air breathes Tudor vitality and intrigue?
Everything. We were treated like royalty. Amazing staff, stunning castle full of royal history, spacious suite overlooking the amazing grounds, bed so comfortable you never want to leave. Every detail was perfect. Let's not forget the food- absolute perfection at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Thornbury is run by young,enthusiastic, friendly and professional staff who made our stay such a delight.
That we did not plan to stay longer.
Luxurious historic dreamworld location and facilities. Excellent breakfast. Generally appropriate levels of service except at dinner.
Fawning and ridiculously pretentious waiter at dinner and young assistant waitress who clearly had not the slightest inkling of correct service, bringing the main course before clearing first course plates and trying to push them aside with the hot dinner plates! Their antics spoilt what should be an "occasion", especially at the prices charged. They urgently need some proper training! The meal itself was also disappointing - a strange lamb dish and unappetising grouse.
Driving in all of us did an intake of breath! Inspiring, gorgeous grounds surrounding 16th century history. You feel it everywhere if you have an ounce of imagination. Room was so fun; suite where Henry and Ann stayed while traveling through. Lights at night are both eerie and magical. LOVED IT.
