Becky Morris - 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.

Trip Advisor Reviews 2022
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.

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 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 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

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.

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

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.

From the ladies in reception to the waitresses, Reception ladies were amazing, and for putting up with the kids running around. It was home from home for the children they absolutely loved every minute being there. The waitresses were fantastic. There timing was spot on, everyone got there food in good time, in good order. All our guests commented how well executed the wedding breakfast was. Thirdly – Hats off to the Chef and his team, I shook his hand to thank him for impeccable food. It was so on point, flawless. Everyone enjoyed their food, and I think one of my guests had 2 helpings 😃.

I'm recommending it to everyone I come into contact with! I just wish I knew of someone else getting married so I couldnlook forward to coming back!
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".
05/04/2022 - AB26: Beautiful venue amazing staff stunning food x
05/04/2022 - AB21: We had a lovely stay over at Craig-Y-Nos Castle and cannot wait to get married at this very special venue in December.

19/03/2022 - TGR: Special mention for the staff facilitating the Wedding day, fantastic people who couldnt have done more.
19/03/2022 - AB19: Thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Gareth and Danielles wedding was great. Faultless.

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.
06/02/22 - AB33: Absolutely fantastic food, so tasty! Friendly and helpful. Had a lovely walk, very scenic and relaxing. A perfect venue for a wedding and I would love to come back to do the ghost tour. Thank you again for a fabulous stay.
25/02/22 - AB25: Food was absolutely stunning . Full compliments to the chef. The staff were so friendly and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. The whole venue was spotless. Beautiful grounds. What a perfect weekend I will never forget ! Thank you so much.
25/02/2022 - AB21: The meal was absolutely amazing. Red hot very tasteful. Full compliments to the chefs. The staff were excellent polite friendly and very thoughtful. Nothing to much trouble . Full compliments to your staff. Rooms were lovely spotlessly clean . Bathroom for room 21 was amazing. Had everything we needed and very quiet. Lots of steps but plenty of rails so that was fine. Stunning views lovely walks. I would like to thank all the staff for making it such a lovely weekend. Couldn't fault the overall experience of our stay. Excellent food service and surroundings for the wedding we attended.
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!
