We just stay two nights here as apart of our Victorian getaway. We enjoyed our stay. The room is well appointed, the bed is very comfortable and the room is extremely clean. All interaction with staff including emails leading up to our stay were friendly and helpful. I would reckon my friends and family to stay here.

Loved it!! I love myth, dragons and medieval legends and this was absolutely fantastic! The rooms were really like sleeping in King Arthur's castle - with arched windows and doors and furnishings to suit! Little touches like (Faux) fur blankets on all the beds were just extras to add to the fantastic experience we had at Kryal! Weather didn't phase... More

Our stay at Kryal Castle has been excellent! With two young boys, they have been in their element watching jousting, exploring the medieval rooms, getting lost in the maze, joining in on the wizard workshop, sword fighting, practicing bow and arrow skills and watching the pantomimes :) I was worried, from other reviews, it would feel run down and neglected,...

Hi Michelle A, Thank you so much for your detailed review. We are so happy that you embraced the Castle and all activities on offer. We have since had someone looking into the leak in the Tower Room and believe we have fixed it... just waiting for some rain to make sure. Would love to have you back again someday.... More

We stayed one night, although it was freezing outside it was toasty inside. Yes, the bathroom was cold but it didn't worry us. My only gripe was the shower head was pretty crappy. If you renovate a bathroom take the opportunity to have a better shower head put in. It was really nice to wake up and explore the castle... More

The accommodation was comfortable and spacious and the king bed very comfortable. However when we stayed in June it was cold and wet and the bathroom was freezing - definitely needs a heater. Overall I was a bit disappointed as the accommodation didn't appear nearly as attractive as portrayed on their website. At that time of year no meals were... More

The accommodation at Kryal Castle is very well done.. The rooms are very nicely appointed with a nice medieval tone to the furnishings and feel without being over the top or tacky. Our King suite was very clean and the bed was fabulously comfortable with fresh crisp linen that felt of good quality. Room service dinner was more toward a... More

Hi Johnston 2614, We are so glad you enjoyed your last minute stay with us. It's excellent to hear that you took advantage of having the Castle to yourself.
