Our 6 and 8yo had a great day - very interactive with heaps of show well spaced out to keep us entertained all day. The activities are well run by friendly staff. The interactive sword play, archery and catapult were a highlight.

I stayed overnight with my 2 kids (5 and 2 year olds). Another family also went and we had adjoining rooms which was convenient. Having adjoining rooms was safer and fun, especially for the children, so that they could pass through easily without going outside and disturbing other guests. The rooms were comfortable, with modern amenities and nicely decorated. The... More

We stayed at one of Kryal Castles 17 rooms on a weeknight. We chose to pay a bit more and selected to stay in a king room - the staff were friendly, the room was well appointed and clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was large but only contained a smallish shower cubicle and no bath, which... More

The accommodation was great, spacious room with beautiful view of the countryside, and the room is decorated to feel like you are in medieval times - but still with all modern amenities, tv, air con/heater, spa, microwave, fridge, kettle, toaster, hairdryer.

Spend an amazing night in number 11 king suite last night which was very well appointed (the bathroom seemed a little sparsely furnished). Engaged in the "Cursed" adventure and had an absolute ball. I won't ruin the experience for potential reviewers but kudo's to the sneaky actor known as "beard man" and the priests wayward tounge. The events and attractions... More
