Staff in Lyrath are so accomodating and friendly. At our family wedding the chefs managed to cook fillet steaks for over 100 guests to individual tastes, breakfast is very varied and fresh and service is fast. morning staff in breakfast room are fantastic. Hotel and grounds are beautiful, highly recommend

Stayed here almost 10 years ago when the hotel most certainly deserved its 5 star rating. Today 4 stars is closer to the mark mostly down to wear and tear and undoubtedly the recession. That said, Lyrath is still a beautiful and peaceful place to visit. Staff are friendly and efficient, our room was very comfortable and clean, dinner in... More

Myself and my husband stayed for only one night and it was perfect from the moment we arrived until we checked out the following afternoon. We were greeted by Haley when we arrived and she checked us in and couldn't have been more helpful... More

Nice hotel in fab setting but seems to be a bit faded. It is in Revceivership and staff are doing a wondeful job in the circumstances. The old rooms (suites) are majestic and both restaurants are really good.
