We were very lucky to be able to hold our wedding at Criag y Nos back in October 2012. We cannot speak highly enough of the staff and facilities. From the first visit the Wedding Planner (Melissa) was so helpful and knowledgeable, there wasn't a question she couldnt answer for us.
We had our ceremony in the magnificent Adelina Pattie Theatre (what a backdrop!). The photos were amazing. We then had our wedding breakfast in the Conservatory which had magnificent views over the country park and out towards the Black Mountains. Our evening reception was also held here and we had full and exclusive use. The majority of our guests stayed over and from what we heard the rooms were very comfortable.
The food options were varied and not one of our guests had anything negative to say about the food (except that there was A LOT! But thats not neccessarily a bad thing!). The waiting staff were very professional and everything went according to my well laid out plans. Melissa was there to help on the day and ensured that everything went smoothly (she deserves a medal!).
They offer very good deals for weddings and so we found that we didn't have to fork out nearly as much as we thought we would, to be able to get married in such a magnificent setting. There is a stunning country park right next door which allowed for some stunning photographs by the lake with the mountains in the background. If it's dramatic and different you want then this is the place for you.
We would definitely recommend Craig y Nos for a wedding, as I say I do not have one negative to say about the place!!!
Room Tip: The Bridal Suite has a lovely roll top bath with views out over the park

Absolutely amazing day.............Melissa deserves a gold medal for all of her hard work. She puts in so much from helping you organise to ensuring the day goes perfectly. I think she could run this place better than the owners to be fair.
Simon is a top quality chef and our meal was honestly one of the best dinners I've had (from a really fussy eater)! He is also not only a fantastic chef but also a very lovely guy who was a pleasure to have a conversation with. Beth is also fantastic and she was a huge help to us. Beth also is a pleasure to talk to.
All in all a wonderful experience and we would strongly recommend people look at this venue for a wedding. We can't wait to come on a ghostly weekend around Halloween as I know so do some of our guests. All of our family and friends enjoyed the day and night and said what amazing food, surroundings and atmosphere it was.
The management should maybe sit back and let the team get on with it as I know I would rather deal wih the real staff anytime.
Big hooray to Melissa, Simon, Beth and all of the staff at Craig y nos for making our wedding so truly amazing xx

I recently got married at Craig Y Nos Castle and I can honestly say it was the most wonderful day of my whole life. Donna was brilliant in the run up to the wedding, and Melissa the wedding planner was absolutely amazing on the day and was on point at all times.
I was extremely lucky with the weather and it was a glorious sunny day, the day of our wedding.
We had our welcome drinks in the courtyard and they were truly amazing. We had pink champagne and strawberries (which I recommend)
The grounds and how beautiful they are speaks for itself.
The Wedding Breakfast was amazing and I will never forget that initial feeling that I felt when I saw how the conservatory had been transformed. It was more than what I had imagined. The attention to detail was second to none and the backdrop in the conservatory is incredible. The food itself was lovely and tasty and all of the guests that I have spoken with completely agree. The waiting staff were really good and were on hand at all times during the meal.
The room was cleared and tidied in time for our evening guests arriving and we all danced the night away to the band and DJ set. I highly recommend the hog roast in the evening. It is truly delicious.
The bridal suite was an extra special touch and it was nice waking up in it the next day.
We both really had the most magical, wonderful day and I would not hesitate to recommend Craig-Y-Nos and all its staff as the perfect wedding venue.
