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.

Hi Alexjane121, We are glad you enjoyed your recent time with us. Our Hotel is open 7 days a week but yes you are right our Park is only open on Weekends, Victorian School Holidays and Victorian Public Holidays. Guests are ok to wander the grounds when the Park is closed which is fantastic however there is no entertainment or... More

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

My sisters and I stayed at Kryal Castle for two nights last week. It was something a little bit “different” from the usual hotel/B&B weekend getaway, and the location of the castle was fabulous – right off the highway and surrounded by undulating green farmland. Very peacfeful, with wonderful views! The castle is an easy drive along the highway to... More

Hi Vancouver Beck, Thank you for your feedback on your recent visit to the Castle. We are glad you enjoyed your overall experience with us but are a little disappointed you thought our service was inadequate. When people check-in we do explain there are designated smoking areas around the Castle. I can assure you one of them is not outside... More

Had a great time staying in one of the rooms. Very spacious and warm. Went to one of their school holiday night shows. Very entertaining for both adults and children. Great exhibition of jousting and horsemanship. Shops very authentic to the period.

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
