Loved the Spa, infinity pool was my favourite part. Beautiful grounds, even in the lashings of rain. The staff are a credit... More

Just after returning after a trip with a group of friends to the Lyrath. The positives first - rooms and room service were excellent. Staff are in general very helpful and very apologetic when there are problems - they try their best. The food - when we eventually got it, was, in general, very good. Now the negatives - waiting...

Stayed from Friday 22 Jan to Sunday 24 Jan but only for work Monday we would have stayed for another few days, that says it all as it was that enjoyable. The hotel itself is really nice and very different in its design, to name but one room the lobby was just like something you might find in Rome, all... More

Stayed here one night in Feb '16 and really enjoyed ourselves. Lovely grounds, professional staff and comfortable rooms. The oasis spa was really nice with a really relaxing thermal suite pool partially outside which made it very nice. I would be delighted to stay here again, thanks to Terry and his team for a wonderful break.

We went here for my birthday and we had a lovely time. We were upgraded as we were returning guests. The room was really lovely with lovely seating area and bedroom. Made to feel very special while we stayed there. Would recommend for a couples weekend.
