Stayed here last weekend as a birthday treat. Hotel is beautiful, the Asian restaurant is well worth a visit. The staff overall are excellent at their job, and friendly without being forced. The only drawback id have is their advertising of their "fully equipped, state of the art gymnasium". It has a couple of treadmills, no resistance machines whatsoever and... More

Went down to the bar for lunch which was gorgeous and the staff here are really lovely. Headed then to the spa... More

Stayed here for a weekend with my wife. Room wasn't ready as we arrived early but we went to the bar and our bags were brought to the room for us. Service in the bar was excellent and quick. I had a duck salad to keep me going (so not my normal food) and it was the nest salad I... More

Our first night we dined in Yindees Asian restaurant and had a fantastic meal, our second night we dined in Tuppers bar and again the food was very enjoyable for adults &... More

Our annual girls spa break was to Lyrath this year. We save up all year to treat ourselves to a 5* hotel and spa break so expect to get that. Had heard lot of good things about Lyrath so we were really looking forward to it. On arrival there was no porter to greet us, we had to go looking... More

I sent the below as an email 7 days ago and received no acknowledgment, as I did not want to leave what may look as a harsh review. After getting no reply to the email and no reply to a tweet 2 days ago, I don't feel so bad making this post. Checking in was a seamless process and we... More

I've just got back from Lyrath and am already planning my next visit. What a dreamy place. We stayed 1 night and, had they not been fully booked, would've stayed a second. From the moment you walk in you are warmly greeted by the friendly staff. Our room was beautiful and huge! A massive bed, huge shower and bath. A... More

Have been here a good few times over the years and the service has always been 100%. Staff are very friendly and the service has always been second to none. Would defiantly recommend to anyone planning a break away or a business trip to give this place a try.

We had the pleasure of staying here recently for one night and I have to say we were so relaxed by the end that it felt like we were away for the week. Firstly we were greeted on arrival by Tom their wonderful Doorman who welcomed us and assisted us with our luggage after a speedy check in with their... More

I spent a girls weekend in the Lyrath just before Christmas and I couldn't recommend it more. From the roaring fire in the lobby to the gorgeous bedroom with a view, it was top of the range from start to finish. The hotel was tastefully decorated and had a lovely Christmas atmosphere. The highlight of the weekend was the afternoon... More
