Help! I cant seem to escape the Dungeons of the La Valettes

Newbie hear so sorry if this sounds stupid or is in the wrong category.
Im liking the look of this game and am having fun but I seem to be stuck in these dungeons. I have killed the first set of guards in the dungeon and proceeded down through the trap door and in to the room with the executioner. When I look through the peephole to see who he is torturing, there is no prisoner. I have looked and apparently there are two choices depending on how you played the previous story out. Is this glitched or am I incredibly stupid and missing something? Wouldnt rule out the latter! I have looted everything possible and dont see any key to be found and the person I convinced to surrender (sorry cant remember his name) does nothing. All it does is keep telling me to get rid of the guards. Also worth noting that the guard in the executioner room respawns everytime I go back.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, Im on the xbox by the way. Thankyou.

You can encounter Aryan or the Baroness (depending on whether you spared Aryan earlier) before you reach the executioner's room. If you do, that triggers a different path through the quest, one that does not involve the executioner.
You still have to deal with the guards. But the guards you have to deal with are not on the path through the executioner's room; they are on the path to the exit from the point you encountered Aryan or the Baroness.

Cheers for the reply.

If that doesn't help, you'll probably have to start over. Sorry, but this is not a well-known glitch; maybe some others will have suggestions, though.

Ok so at one end of the map ( not quite sure where becaue im on painting duties!) There is a single door, I presume this is the way out because thats the only door that I cant seem to get passed. The door is sort of covered at the bottom a bit with some moss/plant. When I stand by the door there are two red dots either directly above or below me, not in the room that I cant get in but the corridor that im stood in.
I cant seem to find a way to get up/down there and the cats eye potion didnt seem to show the guard when loking up or down.
I must be incredibly rubbish at this game lol.

The first is that if you killed Aryan earlier, his mother is being tortured and Shilard will help cover your escape.
The second has Aryan being tortured in place of his mother if you convinced him to surrender.
The third, and which I only encountered on my most recent playthrough, is that if you kill a particular guard, get his key, and open a door on the level above Geralt's own cell you can interrupt the guards escorting Aryan to be tortured. Possibly you could interrupt them taking Aryan's mother to be tortured, but I convinced him to surrender and haven't tried it. Aryan will then sit down near a column and wait for Geralt to knock off all the patrolling guards.
This took me a while to do because there was one guard wandering around who, in Three Stooges fashion, would always walk around a corner or behind a wall whenever I was near him. That was extremely frustrating, since it took me about a half an hour and several reloads (thinking something was glitched) to find and kill him.
What I think may be happening is that you've missed the corridoor you need to go down. When walking around, look for side passages; I can't remember the dungeons very well and it is a bit labyrinthine any way, but this spoileriffic walkthrough is pretty detailed and should help a bit.

Thanks for the link, I did stumble on that earlier but not sure what one is mine, I think standard Aryan route but not totally sure. I persuaded him to surrender on top of the castle and when in the dungeouns there is a cutscene where he knocks out a couple of guards and asks for my help killing the rest. he then just sits there like a lemon. There must be more guards because that is what it keeps telling me to do! I did see the two level maps on that link you provided so I will have a gander.
Also a bit off topic. The converation options in this game, do they make your character good/bad on what you choose? I remember at the beggining the king asked if I thought he did a good job or something and I wasnt sure what to say so I just agreed, even though I though he was an idiot. Do they change the story, or is that just from the actions you do in the game?
Thanks once again. I will be back later tonight.

If the game is working right for you, you will get an update after you have dealt with all four guards. If you have definitely cleared all of the guards out of that room, and you do not get an update, and you cannot go back and interact with Aryan, you're pretty much certainly glitched.
