Continues to impress
This was our second visit to the hotel and again it met every expectation. The staff are very accommodating. We were given an upgrade on arrival and in the suite was a personal written greeting to my wife who was celebrating her birthday - a nice touch. The rooms have every comfort, are immaculately clean (even the copper pipe under the sinks are polished) and the atmosphere is unique. We will be returning again next year.

Perfect overnight stay
We have just come back from an amazing overnight stay at Thornbury Castle. Everything was perfect! Reception staff were friendly - we were early and they took our bags whilst we relaxed with a drink in the lounge and then a walk around the beautiful walled gardens. Our room was clean and sumptuous. Breakfast was delicious with quality ingredients. Throughout our stay we found staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. The whole castle is beautiful - from the inside décor to the outside. The village is a short walk away and a pleasant place for an afternoon or an evening meal. Highly recommend.
