Tortworth Court - Gorgeous ButPosted Mar 20, 2011 on Hotels.com
I booked a stay in a Connoisseur room and can confirm that the property itself is lovely (listed historic building). The room was very roomy and comfortable and the noisy pipework is easily forgiven. What was poor was the breakfast where it appeared that breakfast was prepared for the buffet at 6.30 and then left out until eaten. I took breakfast at 8.30 by which time the fried eggs were like rubber all the way through and the rest of the food was similarly heat dried. So easy to ruin what otherwise would have been a perfect destination.

Great breakPosted Mar 17, 2011
The hotel is set in a lovely wooded area, very easy & pleasant to stroll around. The room was comfortable and clean with tea & coffee provided. We ate in each of the 4 options over the course of our stay. Each meal was enjoyable. The breakfast has a selection of hot and cold items. The only problem if you go at a busy time was getting a cup of tea or coffee. We used the spa, pool, sauna and steam room several times each. The only negative (but only slight) is that you go thru a small area past the sauna & stream room to go to the ladies changing room. This area can become very hot & humid if busy, which can affect the conditions in the ladies changing rooms too. There doesn't seem to be adequate ventilation. The areas were clean whenever we went and clean towels provided. (We didn't use the gym so can't comment on it.) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go again.

Four Pillars TortworthPosted Mar 16, 2011 on Hotels.com
Fabulous hotel. The history of this place is fasinating. I went with my partner but we didn't use the pool facilities as there were lots of children in there and the pool was shut off for swimming lessons. Breakfast was faultless and you can have as much as you want. The rooms were clean and very big, Excellent value for money.

Mid week break at TortworthPosted Mar 14, 2011 on Hotels.com
Lovely hotel but very busy with business men and courses. Due to nature of one of the courses it meant that we couldn't use the pool at a convenient time to us as it was closed for part of the day. Room nice but bed not very comfortable. Restaurant food was nice and service very good, averall a good experience and would recommend to friends.

The hotel is very appealing on the eyes, a beautiful manor house in a lovely setting. The breakfast and dinners were excellent and the decor suitable. The bedroom was very nice but I think could do with refurbishment including a new bathroom suite. Swimming pool and spa were also excellent. A thoroughly enjoyable stay and excellent location for exploring Bath and Bristol.

Tortworth Court is gorgeous – and it actually cost me less than staying in a downtown Bristol hotel – yet it is just off the M5 so has fast access to Bristol, Bath, Cardiff, and the Cotswolds. It is one of the best value hotels I have ever stayed in. The grounds are stunning with an arboretum and the hotel had a free health spa with pool, sauna and steam room. There are two excellent award winning restaurants plus a bar area that does food. There is also a top floor sitting room with panoramic views across the countryside. The rooms are clean and mine had a very large bath The guests were mostly businessmen attending meetings and locals using the spa. My only negative comment is the high price they charged for wifi access – but it was no worse than other hotels I’ve stayed at

Will definitely go to this hotel again.Posted Dec 27, 2010
After checking in we took a look at our room which was rather small, however, following a chat with one of the receptionists we were moved to a larger room which was very good. Breakfast was plentiful and on Sunday morning was very busy - it was the weekend before Christmas. It would have been helpful to have known that on the Saturday evening that there was a wedding party and the hotel Christmas party which meant that both restaurants were closed; however........room service was excellent and there was plenty to watch on TV. The surrounding area is very pretty as are the hotel grounds. It only took 15 minutes to Bristol using the M5 where there is plenty of entertainment and places to eat. Overall we had a very enjoyable, relaxing weekend and would certainly visit Tortworth Court again.

Again please!Posted Oct 14, 2010 on Hotels.com
The Hotel and grounds were amazing, the hotel stunning and the food fabulous. Would definately stay again. The only downpoint is that the location is almost in the middle of nowhere! But not necessarily a bad thing! The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was very comfortable. The spa looked great, but we ran out of time to experience it. overall, it was a nice stay, and great value for money!

Weekend in GloucestershirePosted Oct 9, 2010
On approaching Tortworth Court the grounds were stunning and the approach most impressive, as was the actual building. Interesting architecture and lots of fascinating history attached. The superior room we had booked was clean and comfortable with the bathroom up a flight of stairs in a turret. Unusual but not practical. Dressing table and mirror were fine but there was no light in the area so useless for doing make-up etc. The lighting in the bedroom was very poor - not strong enough for reading. With a bit more thought this could have been a fantastic room but the lighting was a major issue for us. We ate in the Orangery restaurant where the food was really good and the staff friendly and pleasant but they lacked training and the service was sloppy. Breakfasts were adequate with standard fare but again let down by the service. Staff slow to serve hot drinks and the buffet area for hot food was often left for too long with empty dishes. Staff were not watching closely enough to re-fill areas were things has run out such as glasses for juice . The dining room itself was wonderful, an old library with views over the gardens, A more polished serving team would have helped a lot. Overall it is a good place to stay because of its unusual character and magnificent gardens but do not expect top level service.

Tortworth Court, BristolPosted Oct 8, 2010 on Hotels.com
Close to the motorway so access into Bristol was easy to cope with. Once checked in we actually found it more difficult to find our way to our hotel room! What a maze of corners and corridors for the part of the hotel we were placed in. Really enjoyed the wonderful variety of art work situated on the corridor walls - and they did in fact help us to remember the route to our room. The swimming pool and spa area was great and the staff friendly and helpful when we went to use the facilties. The lounge room at the top looked out across beautiful countryside and we realised that we ought to have made use of our overnight stay more efficiently. We really should have arrived in time to walk round the grounds to appreciate the venue better. However our overnight stay; the dining facilities in the old Library; and the buffet breakfast gave good value for money.
