My wife and her mother stayed in this hotel to celebrate her mother's birthday. It was a return visit for my wife but a first for my mother-in-law. My mother-in-law was blown away. Their package included afternoon tea and dinner in Yindees. The food and service for both was exceptional. The only problem is that my mother-in-law has decided that... More

We arrived late evening to check in and were pleased to have opportunity to dine in the Asian Restaurant that was open until 10pm. We could only stay one night unfortunately. Really enjoyed the great walks in the hotel grounds and hired the bicycles. Breakfast was fantastic and beautiful garden view was a real joy. Intend to return before long.

Stayed in the Lyrath for a wedding , the grounds and settings are lovely , function room is impressive and rooms are clean and well presented. The only issue I had is the price of drink with a pint bottle of Bulmer's costing 6.50 , I opted for a draught pint , which came in at 5.20. Later in the... More
