I was a bit worried as we drove up to the accommodation entrance at the back, as it looked like the tradies entrance - pipes and electric equipment sticking out awfully against the medieval look of the castle. Once we were welcomed inside the gate, it was evident the owners have been working hard to make it as lovely as... More

We spent the night in one of the castle suites and felt thoroughly spoilt. Beautifully appointed and luxurious, we completely enjoyed our time there. We then spent all day exploring and watching the various entertainment. The staff are delightful, and the reenactors approachable and engaging. Thankyou for a wonderful stay, we hope to be back one day.

Are you looking for a room with a difference, then this could be for you. The Suites at Kral Castle are located inside the attraction and are really well appointed. Large King Beds a 'medieval' tapestry hanging over the bed and very large rooms including interconnecting. The room rate also included entry to the park and you are free to... More

Loved the accomodation. Room five star cleaniness five star. Loved having the run of Kryal Castle to ourselves after 4pm. We checked out the animals, played on the kids play ground. Walked the maze a dozen times. If we we were prepared we would have cooked a BBQ. My Granddaughter loved the dragon and the baby dragon garden. She loved... More

We had a 2 night stay with our first day spent at the attraction. Discounted entry was provided because we were staying at the castle. Had a great day with our 7 year old daughter. Checked in at the hotel after the park closed at 4pm and was impressed by the friendly staff and beautiful rooms. There are not any... More

We stayed for a couple of nights at the castle and it is definitely different to your average hotel. The room was comfortable, clean and well appointed and the castle grounds were interesting to explore when the park was closed. We also stayed for a day in the park and the performances were entertaining and interesting - although aimed at... More

We stayed here New Years eve. The park staff were amazing, so friendly and very accomodating, really got into their character, they really must love their job. I particularly liked the lady making potions, her manner and enthusiasm was fantastic. We were a little disappointed that there were no activities for the night ( being NYE ) or anywhere on... More

Hi Holiday3219, It is a little disappointing to hear that you feel you chose the wrong night to stay with us. We have never offered New Years Eve entertainment but maybe we will look into it for the future. There are four designated smoking areas around the grounds of the Castle . We wish you had contacted us in regards... More

Want to try a night of Royalty ? We choose Kryal Castle. It is a park with suits room. You need to enter from the back ( if they got sign, would be even better for first-timer ) very quiet after 4:00 PM after the park closed for public. Then you own the entire royal park by yourself. Very nice... More

Hi Mike W, Thank you for choosing to stay with us here at the Castle. We are glad you took advantage of exploring the Castle after we close to the general public. We do apoloigise for the absence of a sign directing you to our accommodation. It just so happens that it went 'missing' just before Christmas. We do tell... More

The rooms are great and comfortable! The boys aged 7and 8 had a fantastic day in particular saving the princess and learning to fight with swords. Highly recommended with a family with young children.

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.
