I've got severely reduced mobility so I get around in my motorised Wheelchair ♿. Upon arrival I was looked after by several members of staff whom just could not do enough for me but at the same time I was not made to feel that it was because of my predicament. The room was absolutely fabulous and luxurious, it had... More

We went here overnight for a spa day as a gift with a friend. It was thoroughly disappointing from start to finish. There is an old house which is beautiful but really under-utilised- maybe the hotel uses those rooms for functions but the old house was closed off and in darkness while I stayed there and I only saw it...

I had wanted to visit this hotel for a long time. I finally went there this week and it lived up to my very high expectations. The house and the grounds are magnificent and the staff are very welcoming and attentive. Lyrath House is an old well established house with its own beauty and attractions. The grounds are extensive and... More

This post is long overdue, weeks ago I started a review and got distracted. We eat in The Lyrath every few months and on every occasion we have left more than impressed with both the staff and the quality of food. On our last visit for sunday lunch we had the pleasure of meeting Terry in the bar and to... More

My boyfriend booked a surprise night away here. We got down at around half one. Check in wasn't until four so we went and explored the city and came back at half three. The man behind reception was friendly and kept saying 'that's a lovely room' as he was checking us in. We went to the room. Top floor, big... More

Just back from a weekend break in the Lyrath Estate Hotel and cannot praise it enough. We were there for 2 nights and the family room was large and comfortable and very clean with all comforts and a wet room like shower and bath. The pool whilst small by most standards is very nice and since it is not open... More
