Room was not properly cleaned. This is especially disappointing when this is in the middle of a pandemic. The glasses still had previous drink stains in them, and there was not enough cutlery to use (1 fork for a queen bedroom).

We had another wonderful stay at Kryal Castle for the Baroque Horse Festival weekend, the horsemanship and performances were absolutely magnificent! The medieval feast on the Saturday evening was divine which also including a wonderful stage show during dinner. Overall another wonderful weekend away at one of our favourite places! 🤗 A big thank you to all of the staff for making our stay so enjoyable! ❤️

This was a great option just outside Ballarat as a stop breaking our long drive to Adelaide. We spent two days here which allowed us to spend one day enjoying the castle and another at Sovereign Hill. The castle itself is a great way to spend a day with kids (although with additional cost for the more popular attractions – e.g. archery), but probably wouldn’t extend to a second day so being close to Ballarat is good. This is also good because there is no dinner option at the castle so having a car for a trip to town is needed, although they do have a delivery deal that can access ost of the Ballarat eateries if you don’t have transport and want to avoid the cost of taxis. The room was clean and comfortable although not having any complimentary toiletries (no soap, shampoo or conditioner) is a bit strange. Overall, recommended for families with kids into early teens.

Thanks for your review. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We do apologise for the lack of toiletries - this is something that is supposed to be provided in every room, so the housekeppers must have accidentally missed your room. If we'd been made aware at the time, we could have brought some to you, as we do live on site. That being said, it definitely should have been done in the first place, so apologies again. Hopefully we will see you again in future!

Kryal Castle and all of its lovely staff gave me the most wonderful experience, the Winterfeast feast on the Saturday night was magnificent! I had a great time exploring the park on the Sunday as well. I was even so lucky that it snowed overnight Saturday night and I got to experience my first ever winter wonderland! Thank you so much to everyone at Kryal who made our stay the best experience of my life!
