Stayed in the gorgeous suites for a night while attending a Murder Mystery night. Food was great, set up excellent, drinks very reasonably priced, staff friendly and helpful and rooms were just lovely. Craig the manager was unbelievably helpful and went out of his way to assist our group. I'd recommend this night out to anyone, lots and lots of... More

Family had a great time and will be going back. There was plenty to do and the room was excellent. Staff for both the accommodation & castle attractions were very friendly and helpful. Kids loved it and keep talking about it.

Needed a place to stay overnight in Ballarat and noticed Kryal did accommodation. Considering I was looking for somewhere to stay with my 6 year old daughter, I figured a castle would be a great experience. Needless to say, I was right! The reception staff are excellent, and incredibly friendly. The rooms were impeccably clean and well thought out. Bought... More

We decided to make the most of the activities in and around Ballarat during the winter school holidays and booked a night’s accommodation at Kryal Castle. After having spent a wonderful (but cold!!) day at Sovereign Hill enjoying the Christmas in July festivities, we then checked in at Kryal Castle. The kids thought it was extra special entering the castle... More

We had to go to Ballarat on Business When we came across Kryle Castle now offers Themed Accomodation inside their Castle grounds I was a great place to stay overnight instead of the usual boring plain motel Absolutely fantastic atmosphere - would be great to stay overnight or a few nights with the kids they would love it

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.

Hi Lylea M, Thanks for taking the time and leaving us a review. We are glad you enjoyed having access to the Castle after we close to the General Public. It is a bonus to staying the night. I do apologise that breakfast had finished for the morning and will discuss with the kitchen perhaps an extended time for guests.... More

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
