Facebook Review 30/08/2021: If you are looking for a wedding venue, stop looking! This is the place for you! The castle and grounds are obviously amazing but what the photo's don't show is how wonderful and helpful the staff are, We got marred here July 2021. Our wedding planner was Nicola and she was so helpful, answering a million questions that I had through e-mail (as a lot of planning was done in lockdown) and as the wedding got closer, and the rules kept changing, she even gave me her personal number so I could always get in touch. All this, whilst re-planning her own wedding as well as looking after those others also getting married at the castle!
On the day itself, there was no stress. Nothing was too much trouble. There was no stuffiness and everything was very relaxed for me, even though it may have been chaos behind the scenes (on a boiling hot day with a cupcake and chocolate favours). The staff were AMAZING - they all worked so hard making sure everyone was looked after well. Everyone who attended has said how amazing the day was, so this is not just be being bias as it was my wedding! Food was delicious and we really did have just the best day. We didn't stop laughing and smiling. Thank you so much Craig y Nos. XX
02/01/2022: Lauren Preston. What an absolute fairy tale dream!! We first booked our wedding here for April of 2020. From our first interaction the staff has been sensational and the venue itself is breathtaking. By the time we had our first (delicious) meal there I was in love with this venue! They were so understanding and supportive through our multiple date changes, guest changes, and general pandemic alterations, even offering to provide the theatre for free and set up an outdoor picknic for us when we hoped to get married just prior to lockdown. I’m happy to report that we were finally successful in having the wedding of our dreams here, but even my wild imaginings couldn’t have come close to how wonderful our stay was. We booked the castle for the whole weekend as we had quite a few people traveling internationally and we were concerned about guests driving after a few drinks. The value for money was absolutely mind blowing!! Every other venue we looked at (and there were quite a few) offered less than half the experience for more than twice the price! While the beauty, history, delicious food and value for money are all amazing selling points for this castle, it’s true strength is in its staff! They were so lovely, warm, welcoming, accomidating and capable. I honestly felt like they were just as invested in making my guests feel valued and looked after as I was. They’re the type of people that if you show them kindness, respect and gratitude, they give it back to you ten times over. We can’t wait to come back and stay whenever we’re in the area!
Friday and Saturday Weddings allow two separate rooms - Conservatory for Day and and Function Room for Evening
Conservatory for Wedding Breakfast and Reception
Reviewed by Mrs and Mrs D - October 2019; Where do I even begin? Craig Y Nos Castle was the first wedding venue myself and my new wife found and the one we kept going back to countless times so we took the plunge and booked our autumnal wedding we both dreamed of and started planning our special day. The castle itself is absolutely gorgeous with breathtaking views and is massive! Our wedding took place in numerous rooms and all of our guests were able to stay the evening with us! Each and every wedding planner at the castle and the other members of staff too, including the chefs and cleaners etc clearly love their job and put their heart and soul and passion into what they do. There is one particular member of staff who I honestly cannot thank enough and will never be able to express our gratitude for......Emily Tuck! Emily was our wedding planner since day one and her communication was amazing, keeping us updated by emails, phone calls and face-face meetings. Nothing we wanted to include in our wedding was ever too much trouble and she ensured we had the best day! She checked, double checked and checked again that everything was included on the order of service before our big day and it was all SO detailed!
The reason my wife and I are unable to thank Emily enough is because she saved the day last minute when disaster struck 2 hours before ‘I do’ and she set into action ringing florists in Brecon to find us some flowers! Nonetheless she remained calm and professional whilst I was panicked and on my way to the castle. She succeeded and even took the time to check with my new wife the flowers she found were acceptable before going ahead....Emily, our flowers were GORGEOUS. This woman went above and beyond the entire lead up and day to our wedding! The food at the castle was beautiful and enjoyed by all of our guests - wedding breakfast, buffet and the breakfast! One of my guests has severe coeliac disease and the castle accommodated SO well! Gluten free beer, rolls, gravy and special signs were made! The guest was nervous beforehand however was so at ease on the day so thank you!!!! Book this castle for your wedding and I can hand on heart say you will NEVER be disappointed. Your photos will be absolutely breathtakingly beautiful due to the scenery! THANK YOU CRAIG Y NOS! xxx

"My husband and I would to thank Donna and her amazing team at Craig Y Nos Castle for the perfect day. Everything was soo organised, the food was delicious and all of our guests had a great time".
Sarah M wrote a review Jan 2022, "Super wedding venue and lovely place to stay. We stayed here 3 times in the run up to our whole weekend wedding. (Rearranged 3 times). Michael, Nicola and all the staff were friendly, welcoming, and nothing was too much trouble. So many of our guests complimented us on choosing such an outstanding venue, both in terms of looks but even more in finding such a fabulous venue with staff that were just so phenomenal. They helped us pull off an amazing weekend hosting all our friends and family, feeding them all delicious food (Thank you Steve the Chef!) and enabling us to celebrate our marriage, at last. Thank you to everyone at Craig Y Nos. You are absolutely legendary and we can’t wait to come back and see you again. Sarah and Ed."
