I have stayed at the Lyrath Estate on the 19th of July 2014. This is my second time staying here. It's truly an amazing place. The sense of pure relaxation you get from the minute you enter the estate and drive up to the house. The staff are very friendly and are very helpful. Our room was beautiful 437 spacious... More

We stayed here for an anniversary and we were treated so well. There was flowers and prosecco waiting in the room and it was very special. The room was clean and spacious, and bed was comfy. The spa is nice though it is small, our massages were good, I think it's luck of draw with therapists experience, we had similar... More

My sisters and I choose La Perla restaurant in Lyrath hotel to celebrate a birthday recently. We relaxed in the lovely conservatory with a pre dinner drink. Our dinner was superb and the service was excellent. They accomodated us when we requested to bring a birthday cake and the staff offered to capture the moment on camera for us. Their... More

Recently back from a 1 night stay in the Lyrath, it came highly recommended and didn't disappoint. This was our last night away before our baby arrives and we booked the 1 night B&B package with afternoon tea and spa treatment. Best afternoon tea I've ever had, so much food and delicious, my massage was amazing with Siobhan who specialises... More

We stayed at this hotel as a family for the second year running and it still came up trumps. If we get the opportunity to do so we will again next year. We stayed for four nights and our very reasonable deal included dinner on two nights for two. Our initial thoughts were to get a babysitter and get the... More

Staff were excellent and the lobby area was very nice. Express check out system was very convenient. We stayed in room 144. The room smelled a little "off" on arrival which was offputting - would have been nice if they used air freshner. The air conditioning was loud and still audible when turned off (not sure if it's connected to... More

The Lyrath is possibly the best hotel I've ever stayed in. The service is perfect and the staff could not be more helpful and friendly. We were staying for a wedding and the room, the food, the drinks and the spa treatments were top quality. It was, in short, a perfect weekend.
