My husband thought I had booked a cabin in a caravan park so he was more than alittle amazed to find I had booked into this "blast from our past" The new hotel suites have been tastefully decorated and are very well appointed. Our spa room had one queen size and one single bed. The beds were very comfy with crisp white linen and faux fur blankets. Dark patterned carpet, small castle shaped windows with lovely views across to Ballarat and a wall tapestry all contributed to the feeling we were staying in a castle without being over the top. , The breakast "box" was fairly basic, but the bathroom amenities were excellent.
We ate dinner in the tavern on site. The menu was small, offering your usual pub food but it was good -the servings were generous and prices very reasonable. The staff were very professional and helpful.
We wandered around the castle the next morning and saw some of the jousting show. The attractions are aimed at kids but it was still a lovely venue for a romantic night. Kryal Castle suites are excellent value for money - nad much more fun than your standard hotel!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Following a major redevelopment, and reopening in March 2013, Kryal Castle is Australia's only medieval adventure park, and recreates a legendary land of myths and medieval adventure with knights, dragons, wizards, kings, queens, princesses and fairies. Within the Castle walls is a medieval town of activities, where visitors feel as if they have entered a unique and magical place! Witness daring jousting contests, venture down into the creepy Torture Dungeon or wander through the grounds and gardens exploring the Knight's Round Table Tower, the Maze, Dragon's Labyrinth, Village Traders, Bravehearts Playground, Wizards Workroom, Jesters Theatre and so much more. Buy sweets from the Tooth Fairy Lolly Shop, and if you can't resist the lure of this fascinating period try on an outfit at the King's Britches Costume Emporium and take a picture of your medieval self. To extend the adventure, visitors can continue with a night in one of the Castle's 17 luxury suites, which beautifully capture the glory and mystery of times past, with stunning hand woven European tapestries, yet are as modern and as well equipped as any lord or lady would want. Perfect for romantic getaways or fun family adventures staying in the heart of the action! ... more less
