Review from Dec 8, 2023 Best wedding venue bar none. I want to get married just to book and do it all again. Perfection from start to finish
A week ago, I attended the best wedding I have ever been to at this fantastic haunted castle. Everything was perfect, the rooms were comfortable and clean, it smelt lovely walking in.
Despite it being a really cold couple of days outside, the rooms and public areas were so cozy.
The food was fantastic, it was a posh home from home, but I didn't have to clean or cook. I had a meal the night before the wedding, it was perfect, absolutely delicious, the wedding menu more than lived up to expectations, the servers and staff were personable and polite.
We had beautiful views of the mountains... I've been to many weddings in different places in my time, and this was the absolute best ever by far, the decorations just put the cherry on top of a perfectly delicious cake. ....it was a day and experience I'll never forget.

Review from 09/12/2023: Wonderful Wedding Venue Wow what an amazing place. I went there to attend my friends wedding. When you arrive the beauty of the building (nestled in the mountains) is breathtaking.
Once inside I was greeted my the lovely receptionist who was full of information, very friendly and helpful.
The interior of the castle is steeped in history of its previous owner Madam Patti. The architecture is beautiful as is the furnishings.My room was extremely spacious, spotlessly clean, with a modern bathroom. The shower was powerful and easy to adjust the temperature.
... the bedrooms and lounges were kept nice and warm. Sitting by the fire in one of the lounges with a drink is extremely cosy and a great place to chat amount friends. The evening before the wedding we did a ghost tour which was amazing. .... The first evening we had a two course meal, which is one of the best meals I have ever eaten. The ribeye steak was cooked to perfection, it literally melted in my mouth. I really recommend ordering that.
The wedding itself was glorious from start to finish. It is the best wedding I have ever attended. It was a true celebration on love. The ceremony was beautiful. The food ... was delicious. The reception was filled with fun, laughter and lots of drunken dancing. The staff were attentive, helpful and really couldn’t have done anymore for anyone. A big shout out to the lady behind the bar, who was rushed off her feet but still made time to laugh and joke with us all.
Anyone planning a wedding, I would 100% recommend this stunning castle. You will honestly have the most amazing day. Thank you to all the staff at Craig Y Nos for making it a truly magical time xx
Wales on Line Review of Craig y Nos Castle
10th May 2023
"The little known haunted gothic mansion with gorgeous and tranquil grounds you can just lose yourself in...."
Nestled half way between Swansea and Brecon is a stunning gothic mansion which looks as though it has leapt straight off the page of a romantic fairytale book. Built in roughly 1841 on what is now the A4067 between Pen-y-Cae and Glyntawe, and steeped in history, it's no wonder why the impressive building, with its ornate stone facade, .... is why so many couples choose Craig-y-Nos as a perfect yet unique wedding venue, using Adelina Patti's grand theatre for an unforgettable ceremony and the country park for a breathtaking photo opportunity. read more..
