Charlotte Evans recommends The Official Craig y Nos Castle. We had our wedding at Craig y No Castle on the 08.06.22 it was the perfect day Nicola, Danni and every single member of the team went above and beyond to make our day so special, nothing was too much trouble and after phoning Nicola in floods of tears 2 days before when our wedding decorator pulled out on us she and the team pulled together a miracle and put us in touch with another supplier who created what we had always imagined what our wedding would look like. All of our guests we’re looked after and everyone had the best time, it will be a day we will never forget! Thank you so much love Mr & Mrs Evans

Micha Leezanne Thomas recommends The Official Craig y Nos Castle. "We had our wedding at the castle on the 1st of May. It was everything and more to what we had wanted.

It was perfect, food was amazing and we had SO many compliments on the venue with the beautiful views that surround the castle. SO sad it’s over, but will be back to celebrate our anniversary next year.

Trip Advisor Reviews 2022
Review from Sep 1, 2022 5 Star Tanya Driscoll: Wonderful Wedding Experience at a stunning location
The location and the heritage of the building are obviously the main attraction, and can only be described as stunning, with real character and charm. We got married here mid August and the wedding package itself was faultless. The service, food and effort was amazing, and it was the best day of our lives together. There were a few niggles, but it did not detract from just how wonderful our wedding experience was. With covid cancellations it took almost 3 years to get us to this day, and now looking back, we wouldn't change a thing. Special thanks to Michael, Jen, Chloe, Melanie and Kelly who made us and all our guests feel so welcome, and who work so hard to make sure we had our perfect day. Thanks to the bar staff and the chef(s), the food and service during our stay was perfect, we wish we could have stayed longer, and every single guest agreed.
5 Star review 01/09/22 – James: Fairytale castle in breathtaking mountain scenery
Great welcome from friendly and efficient staff who showed me to my room efficiently, provided me with an iron and helped me print out my speech notes. My room was large, clean and well-stocked with soaps, lotions, beverages and biscuits. The wedding venue was stunning - the artwork, architecture and history provided both grandeur and intimacy for a really unique ceremony. The wedding breakfast was held in the conservatory, where the beautiful views of the river Tawe were complemented by the stylish and sophisticated table settings. The food itself was well-presented, of good quality and service was just about quick enough to ensure everyone had hot food. The wedding team dealt with last minute alterations to the schedule effortlessly and provided excellent hospitality until the wee small hours. We had the whole hotel booked out for our wedding party so we were able to sit outside late without disturbing other guests.
5 star review 21/08/2022: Brilliant
Just returned from my brother and new sister in law’s wedding. This was one of the best weddings I have ever been to. Beautiful building brilliant staff gorgeous food. Nicola, Dani and Kelly were all brilliant and went above and beyond for the bride and groom. The entire team on the day were a credit to the place.
5 Star Review from Jul 30, 2022 Wedding

5 Star Review from Jul 22, 2022 We love Craig y Nos Castle

5 star Trip Advisor Review Review from Jul 4, 2022 Weekend Wedding was the best ever!
Craig-Y-Nos Castle hosted our weekend wedding. We hired the whole castle Friday to with all rooms booked for all our family and friends. We had one of the best times ever to celebrate our wedding with our nearest and dearest! The rooms were very cleaned and each room was very unique! The food was scrumptious with superb detail! Everyone had an amazing time. Our wedding planner Nicola and Front of House Chloe in addition to their amazing team and chefs provided us reassurance, detail and no request was too much for them. Thank you for sharing our day and putting on an amazing experience, which we will always remember. We will be back a couple of times each year to visit and will always be regulars. We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done and provided for us! Love Scott and Mike!
Thank you for this great review, it is much appreciated – especially in view of all the back to back weddings cancelled because of the virus, our team having been working constantly! I am glad to hear that your 2 day wedding went well over the weekend and that you and your guests enjoyed – both the accommodation and the food. I am sure that the behind the scenes staff in housekeeping, maintenance and the kitchen will appreciate your kind words as will Nicola and Chloe and of course, the rest of the wedding, foh and reception teams. We would love to see you both return. Many thanks, M!chael
Review from May 9, 2022 Perfect day
Amazing family wedding. All executed fabulously by the wonderful, friendly and welcoming staff at the castle. Extremely enjoyable day and overnight stay. My room or should I say apartment was fabulous. Very clean and most comfortable with excellent facilities. Wedding Food was lovely. Buffet was good and breakfast was lovely. Beautiful surroundings, perfect venue for a wedding. Only downfall was no phone reception at all and wifi although free wasn’t the best. Think I’d rather pay and have better wifi service.
Michael (Manager) replies: Thank you for such positive comments. I am sure the whole team will enjoy reading your comments. Its great that you found the “apartment” to be of a fabulous quality. Its also very good to hear you enjoyed the food. Sadly, mobile reception in the area is no good and although we have 100mb of internet speed at times when lots of people are using the speed can get a bit congested (and sadly we cannot yet increase the speed). The best place for the internet though are the public areas and some lower floors. Overall though I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
Review from May 5, 2022 Wedding
First class place stunning location staff were superb. My daughter’s wedding. Couldn’t fault the staff place or the food. Accommodation was very good. Breakfast was good help yourself but could have done with being a little hotter.staff were on hand wedding day to help.
Michael (Manager) replies. Great to hear you enjoyed the wedding and the food and that you feel we offer good accommodation. I will pass on your comments to the team. Best wishes for the future. M!chael
Review from May 5, 2022 Mrs Chambers Fantastic service

Keep up the good work 😊 We will definitely be re-visiting this gorgeous castle.
Michael (Manager) replies: One word Sam – Excellent! Thanks for such kind words – its great that you enjoyed all elements of the Castle and am sure the staff including our chef will be over the moan. M!chael x
Review from Apr 23, 2022 Wedding venue
Had a lovely stay at Craig y nos . Wedding venue was fab , rooms were spotless clean , staff couldn’t do enough and were very friendly. Definitely recommend and will return. View from the castle if you enjoy walking .
Review from Apr 12, 2022: Beautiful castle with warm and welcoming staff - would highly recommend
Me and my Fiancée recently stayed overnight (dinner, bed and breakfast) at this absolutely beautiful castle. We stayed to experience our future wedding venue and we were absolutely blown away at how warm and welcoming everyone was and how delicious the food was. Highly recommended for those who want to explore the Brecon Beacons and/or Swansea. You will not be disappointed.
Review 6th April 2022: Wedding and night stay 4 star
Came for a friends wedding, was a really nice day in an alternative venue. Being a castle it was quite cold in the big event rooms. Nice food for the wedding meal followed by a good buffet in the night and cooked breakfast in the morning. The ceremony was in the opera hall with food in the decorated conservatory followed by the reception in the main hall with a dance floor area. Our room was nice for a dated castle but I think still quite expensive for paper thin walls. Scenic surrounding areas but be prepared to be without signal and the wifi was very unreliable.
Michael (Manager) replies: Thank you for your review your comments are greatly received. Its great you enjoyed the day - somewhere different and found the buffet to be good and the morning breakast. The Castle naturally being old tries to replicate an antique feel, yet to be comfortable - sadly we had an issue with our oil supplies previously and had to heat rooms with electric heaters - and i am lead to believe this is now working again. Mobile Signal in the area is rubbish, i must admit and our internet once connect at 100mbps does work well - sadly with numerous simultaneous connections at can lead to slow speeds (not least a cable had snapped a couple of weeks ago, which fingers crossed is now sorted).
Review 5th April 2022: Review from Apr 5, 2022 5 star
A brief visit to a distant relatives home of 1876, My wife is the great great granddaughter of Morgan Morgan, who owned the castle in 1876, and as we were in the area for a mini break , we called in on the off chance of having a quick look inside. The receptionists was very friendly and gave us the permission to take a look around. We were quickly greeted by a lovely knowledgeable gentleman called Jeremy, who took time out to show us around and explain a little more history. This castle is now a hotel that offers itself as a wedding venue and it is clear to see why. It is a beautiful place to get married with all the necessary facilities. Truly stunning.
Review 24th March, 2022 Wedding and Nights Stay
The wedding was excellent. Well organised, great food and lovely ambience. Cant fault it. The accommodation is great and keenly priced. Stunning location. It helped that the weather was un Welsh like! Highly recommend it. The access to the beacons is second to none.
Review 21st March, 2022. Wedding
Craig y Nos Castle and staff gave us the PERFECT Wedding, Every element was first class. The staff were all outstanding and couldn’t do enough. The food was stunning. Location wow. Dog friendly should read we love dogs here please bring them. Excited to revisit as a married couple. All of our guests were sooooo impressed and echo the above, Stunning thanks 🙏
Review from Mar 14, 2022 A perfect Wedding venue & cosy overnight stay
I really enjoyed my stay at Craig-y-Nos, this being the second time visiting, the first being for my best friends' Wedding a year prior. This visit was for their long-awaited Reception & it was the perfect venue for them both. The room for the reception was fantastic, with a wonderful view. The food - we had the tomato & pepper soup and the Beef roast and not only were the flavours amazing but the portion size was generous too. Not forgetting the lovely cone of chips at the end of the night! The drinks were very reasonably priced at the bar. The room in which we stayed was nice and cosy, a very good shower and room amenities. The stay included breakfast, which included lots of options and I felt it was good value for money. We had a lovely walk the next day around the castle. Will recommend this place to friends and family.
Michael (Manager) replies: Thanks for the great comments – I am sure that the staff really enjoyed the long overdue Reception and that they were as keen to have it as all they and all the family and all the guests. I am glad that you found all the food to be of good quality and quantity and the drinks – within budget!!! Its great you enjoyed the room too. Recommendations are appreciated – thanks M!chael x
Review from Mar 14, 2022 a wedding tasting for UN marrieds!
Again, we were lucky enough to join a fantastic event- a 'wedding tasting'- the second we have been to- fantastic food, a lovely Rioja, superb venue, fantastic staff- and us confirmed unmarried partners! We had a super time- thanks to you all. The dog was in heaven, the room was marvelous, the castle with it's unique ambience is warm and welcoming, and the park is on the doorstep. Whenever we come and stay, we feel truly welcomed and looked after. Thank you everybody- including those we rarely see- because you all contribute to our enjoyment.
Michael (Manager) replies: Thank you for your comments, its great that you enjoyed our combined Taster/Dinner Bed and Breakfast. It allows everyone to taste what could be at a wedding and/or have a variety of food, not least it is the spice of life. I am glad you enjoyed as did you dog. Great that you like the room and the hospitality. Thank you and see you soon. M!chael x
Review from Mar 4, 2022 Craig y Nous Recently attending a wedding here. Set in absolute stunning surroundings. Lovely walks. The castle is just beautiful. The staff was faultless very obliging and friendly. Would definitely recommend anyone to stay here. Any of you couples out there getting married definitely the place to choose. Food and service was excellent
Rebecca G 07/03/2022: Beautiful Venue , amazing food and fabulous staff.
I recently had my wedding here and I cannot express how much time, effort, attention that Nicola the wedding planner and all the staff at the castle put into ensuring we had such a fabulous day. Nothing was too much trouble and everything ran so smoothly. I’ve had such positive feedback from my Guests on not only how beautiful the venue was but how amazing the food was and how fabulous all the staff were. Every member of staff at the Castle made our day a day to remember. I would highly recommend Craig Y Nos Castle.
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.

27/09/2022: Hi Nicola. The day was wonderful. It really flew by in the blink of an eye. Brecon was lovely as well. The ice-cream place you recommended was great. All in all a brilliant week. Thanks so much to you and the Craig Y Nos team for helping it go so smoothly. We'll definitely be back to stay a night or two in the future. Perhaps on anniversaries; relive the day a little bit every year. As for feedback and reviews Daisy is on the case. Keep in touch. Cheers, J.
24/09/22022: Hi Emily, I just wanted to thank you and all of the staff for everything in the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself. Our day couldn’t have been more perfect and we’ll be forever grateful to you all! Your kindness blew us away, we felt like complete royalty and our guests were so well looked after. Everyone worked so hard and I’d love you to pass this email on to every single member of staff. Thank you once again, we will be back to stay with you! Craig y nos will always hold a special place in our hearts. Best wishes, the newlyweds ,Mr & Mrs Price.
23/09/2022: We had our special day at Craig Y Nos. I could not thank everyone enough. Dani and her team were perfect and made our dream wedding come true. They did everything possible to make our day stressed free and beyond. All of our guests complimented on how amazing the staff and foods were as well as the venue and the castle view. We are so happy that we had chosen to do our wedding here at Craig Y Nos Castle and also sad that it's over. We had a great time, thank you all so much for everything.
15/09/2022: Hi Nicola,Thank you 😊 And thanks to you and all of the staff at the castle for making our day so extra special and the perfect day to remember. Thank you 😊 We'll absolutely love to leave a glorious review as soon as we get back - we're just in Vegas but so glad we had the original ceremony with you - pretty sure we won't be able to top the day we had on the 12th with all of our family being looked after by your team. Thank you 😀 We've got some fabulous pictures in the castle and grounds at Craig y Nos - I'll send you some when I get pics off the posh camera :) Thanks again. The very, very kindest of regards Anne-Marie and Gerard x
15/09/2022: Hello Nicola, Thank you to you and all the staff at the castle. The wedding day went very smoothly, all thanks to you all at the castle. Compliments to the chef and everyone who helped make or deliver the food. It was beautifully presented, tasted great and everyone worked hard to deliver the food and take away dishes as promptly as possible. All the staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Yes the gin glasses were different. We had seen something like it a few years ago so adopted the idea into our theme. Thank you all again for your help to make our day go so well. As far as we can tell everyone enjoyed it immensely. Kind regards, Carol & Phil
03/09/2022: Hiya Nicola, Thank you so much the day was amazing! Literally couldn't of asked for a better venue. Thank you to you and all your staff for everything you done for us, it was so nice to have such a chilled day and just enjoy every minute of it.Thank you again, we definitely won't be strangers. Gemma and Owain.
01/09/2022: Good morning. Thank you so much for the wonderful care and service you gave to us and our guests on our wedding day. Despite the weather and the power cut, you ladies kept on smiling through the panic, and helped make us feel like we were the only family and friends in all of Wales. I would especially like to thank Jen, you had the biggest smile during our whole stay, and you ran around trying to get me breakfast, and honestly, it felt like you were part of our family for the few days. We are all very grateful. We had the best few days and we thank you for your part in that. It was just beautiful. We will back… Best wishes, Robert & Tanya Vinyard.
30/08/2022: Hi Michael, We had the most fantastic day, it was everything we could have wanted. If you can please send the video via whatsapp to me and Rob if that is possible. You can also put it on your facebook page if you would like to, we will share it. Please pass on my thanks to all the staff. One of your receptionists was exceptionally lovely, but I do not know her name. I wonder if it was Jen? Have I got the right name? I would like to send her a personal thank you. Kind Regards, Tanya
11/07/2022: Oh we’ll be back… lots. We can’t stop talking about how amazing you all were, everyone we’re speaking to just tells us how friendly and how helpful all the CYN team were, and they’re right. I’ve planned events for work in London with the best trained silver service staff and you have all wiped the floor with them! You genuinely made our weekend, We love you all to bits and you’d better just make sure you’re still there when we come back!
21/06/2022: Hi Emily, Ah thank you so much. We had the best day and everyone has commented how much they enjoyed and loved the castle. Can honestly say it went perfectly and that's down to your hard work! Sorry for any stress in the lead up, I think we had a few moments but the whole setup was so professional we couldn't have asked for more. We will 100% be back for some stays and we hope to see you in the future. Thank you again, you're a star! Nick & Lizzie
19/06/2022: Hi Nicola, Apologies for the delay, I’ve been working away for a while. We both thank you and all the other staff for making our day amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. I have submitted our vote. I will asap also place reviews on social media. You were fabulous, always happy to help. Also, if there was a hiccup you dealt with that promptly without losing your smile. You are a credit to the company. Just a little information not a complaint, as you will remember we had a few Coeliac’s. The evening buffet was itemised, which was great. Just a suggestion, maybe place the GF food at the beginning on a separate table only a very short separation. Due to the possibility of cross-contamination. My Mum appreciated the effort you all made, just couldn’t chance any gluten being transferred to other items. Again, just a recommendation. I have a friend ----- that is looking to get married, she asked me a load of information regarding the Castle. I have advised them both that the venue is a must and to hopefully deal with yourself, as we couldn’t fault you. I know if they book, they will have a fabulous day like we did. Thanks & Kindest Regards. Wayne & Joanne
12/06/2022: Hi Nicola, I wanted to say how incredible you were on the day. I was extremely anxious about the day, you promised me everything would be taken care of and my god you delivered!! We had a fantastic day and our guests loved it more than we did! We have received endless compliments about the team and the venue - you’re name was brought up multiple times. My mum is still singing your praises today and she’s a tougher audience than me! You are a credit to the team and you should be incredibly proud! Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Danielle & Alex.
27/05/2022: Hi Nicola! Thank you so much. We really did have a truly amazing day, everything was just perfect, we are just so so sad it’s over! I have voted for you all at Craig y nos castle. We wouldn’t have changed a thing and can’t thankyou and the team enough for making sure we had the most amazing day. Our guests have complimented the wonderful views, food and how smoothly it ran. Appreciate everything you have all done for us :) we really do. We will be back for our anniversary next year! Love from Micha & Rob x
16/05/2022: Hello Nic. Now that all the fuss has died down and we’re back from a honeymoon with multiple loads of washing left to do I thought we’d send you an email. Craig y Nos castle will always have a special place in our heart, everything on the day was perfect. There was no pressure, all was run very calmly and smoothly and was literally the best day of our lives. Everyone is still talking about the day now (we’ve even been asked can we have a one year wedding anniversary party). However, we are fully aware this day wouldn’t have been possible without you. You listened, you went above and beyond for us, as I’m sure u do every bride, and we are eternally grateful. We cannot thank you enough for all you done, not just you however but the whole team. Please pass on my thanks to Emily, and Jen who held my hand when I needed it and also all your other incredibly hardworking staff. From the gardeners to the cleaners to the bar staff everyone was so kind and give us such a great day! Hopefully we will be able to bring some thank you cards up soon ( and when ur not busy). Thank you so so much Nicola for all u done. With love Mrs and Mrs Bethell xxx
May 2022: Hi Nicola, I’d just like to email you with another thank you for all your hard work over the weekend to make sure we had the most amazing wedding! Me and Chris had the best day and we couldn’t of asked for more! You all done your best for everything to run so smoothly. Everyone has said what a brilliant day they had, the food was amazing and the venue looked amazing! I don’t think I can fully put into words how grateful we are for you all behind the scenes that day!
25/04/2022: To Nicola and all the staff at Craig Y Nos. Thank you so much for hosting our recent Wedding party 06/03/2022. And or original Wedding Ceremony 07/03/2021. The decorations were beautifully arranged just as I visioned them. The food was delicious and all our guests commented how great you all were. I particularly liked how you decorated our cake with the edible Petals that I bought. Everything was perfect and you worked with exactly what we wanted, nothing was a problem and you made it feel wonderful, any request was possible. Thank you for letting us have two wonderful Weddings days due to Covid and working with us during those strange times.
Craig Y Nos will always be special to us from now on. Lots of love. Sarah & Lucien Dillon
31/03/22: Hi Nicola, Thank you so much for the email. We had the most perfect day. We can't thank you enough for everything you did for us and the staff were fantastic. It really was everything we hoped for and more. We don't need the boxes or jipp so please feel free to use them or get rid. We were going to wait for the photos from Andrew and then put a pic and review up. We will certainly vote. I've already recommended the castle to two potential brides lol. Take care. Mr and Mrs Edwards.

10/06/2022 - AB32: Absolutely beautiful location, amazing history and stories from the castle with so much heritage and history. Only downside was the rooms needed a little bit of TLC, but totally understandable given the age of the building and the investment which has already been given!! As a fan of most haunted to see the transformation is absolutely immense, we would love to come back

Would recommend the castle for weddings. Food for the wedding was beautiful, well presented, beautiful table setting,....
19/05/2022 - AB26: We had good food and enjoyed it. Very hard working staff and so friendly. The waitress was kind to Gran on the first night and offered her preferences to what was on the menu. Much appreciated. Beautiful and easily accessible. A very beautiful place I would recommend . I took my dog and it was easy to get her in and out to the gardens and the park. A long way from home for us to travel again. We joined a wedding party for 2 nights . It was wonderful to stay in a fairytale setting and it was just like being a guest in a friend's home . Thank you.

13/05/2022: - TFFF: Nicola on reception was outstanding and an absolute credit to your business. She went over and above to help me sort a wifi problem and took control when the wedding guests were not filtering into the conservatory for the first dance.

08/04/2022 - TGL: Jen at reception was incredible. She Was professional friendly and enthusiastic to help in any way. Waiting staff during the wedding were really good. I like the way when they brought food to table they called guests by name rather than say "chicken or beef".

10/03/22 - AB36: The food at the wedding reception and evening cheese board buffet was outstanding. Every member of staff couldn't do enough for us. We had many guests comment on the high standard of customer service. The castle is a historic building and part of its charm is it's patina. Our son is getting married at the castle in 4 weeks God willing and we are so pleased that we get to celebrate at the venue again. We stayed for 2 nights for our daughter's wedding, we had a meal the night before and Jen took us to the restricted areas after the meal, she was great and took our son terrifying her very well, apologies again. The wedding day was absolutely perfect, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute despite the weather. We were extremely impressed that Nicola even allowed the Llama and the lamb into the conservatory for photos as it was so wet outside. Nicola did a fantastic job organising the event and couldn't have been more helpful or enthusiastic. All the staff work incredibly hard and we really appreciated all their efforts.

It looked lovely decorated for a wedding and the view from the room we ate the wedding breakfast in was amazing.

23/07/2022: 4 stars Went for a friend’s wedding last August. Very comfortable stay in nice room with shared bathroom. Quirky building with character, very nice staff and plenty of space inside and out. Quite far from the station at Neath but got a taxi both ways. Nice grounds and river running through parkland behind the castle. Shame it rained but very pleasant stay.

01/06/2022: Jeannette Warden 5* Beautiful location . Intriguing history of the castle and each room has presence of granduar. Attended my daughter's wedding and it was just so beautiful and relaxed. The staff were so attentive, polite and helpful. The venue in the theatre was just fabulous! Thank you for making our stay special.
Craig Y Nos Castle (owner) Thank you for such positive comments - its lovely to hear you enjoyed and found our staff to be of good service (indeed i appreciate them as much as customers too). Glad you found the theatre to be a good setting too. M!chael
20/04/2022: What a beautiful place to have a wedding! The service took place in a lovely mini "Opera house" then following that you had outstanding grounds and buildings to wander about, and due to the location it is so peaceful. The staff were all helpful and professional and the food was lovely. I would say the highlight could well be the view from the rear of the castle, lots of the non Welsh guests were gobsmacked by the beautiful trees and surrounding hills on show.
16/04/2022: Review left by Glenys Knight 5 * Went to a wedding there. Fabulous meal and they dont skimp on the food. The conservatory was dressed to perfection
29/02/2022: 5 star Beautiful place for a wedding
10/03/2022: 5 star Stayed for 2 nights for a wedding. Food was superb, staff went above and beyond, castle is vast with beautiful grounds and steeped in history. Reasonably priced. Only advice I would give to others, its a castle, therefore possibly colder than you may be used to, however, didn't deflect from my enjoyment. Would definitely stay again.
05/03/2022: Lovely buildings and fantastic staff.
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!
