The accommodation at the castle is fabulous! Having access to the grounds after hours was a great experience.. Breakfast is served in the cafe.. Which is open all day. But don't be 5 minutes late as breakfast stops being served at 10 on the dot!! My recommendation pop into town for an all day breakfast.

We thought that we would stay here for the novelty factor. We only stayed for one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Kryal Castle is about 10 minutes drive out of Ballarat. It is necessary to call a mobile phone number at the back of the castle to be let in. The service was excellent and friendly from the moment we... More

My Husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. I couldn't believe we were staying in a castle. I would highly recommend Kryal Castle to everyone. The lady in the office Lisa was fantastic. She had all the information we needed. We were very lucky to be staying a Friday night when they hosted the Murder Mystery dinner. Best night.... More

Awesome night that I would highly recommended to anyone. The staff were great actors/actresses, hilarious and made the night a lot of fun. We stayed in the king room and it was really nice (and warm!). Thanks Kryal Castle

Having checked in after hours, which they are closed during the week for the winter season. We had an absolute ball walking around the castle at night, it was cold and misty...... just adding to the... More

Good, clean, comfortable, well appointed medieval themed room. Unfortunately no meal facility other than the theme park during opening hours. Interesting & entertainig stay. Highly recommended for a special occasion stay or for something different.

We stayed here on the way to Melbourne and found it to be very comfortable and warm. Love the continuation of the castle theme and as we arrived here at night it was really cool to wake up in the morning and explore the castle to ourselves. It would be great if there were some kind of mini show for... More
