We stayed in Lyrath for just a 1 night break - the surroundings are nice, and the staff are helpful, but you never really get the feeling that it's a "proper" 5 star - The main reason for that in my opinion is because it isn't - it's s 4 at most - everything is OK - food was nice, rooms are nice, but the levels of service and attention to detail that is available in other 5 stars is missing - having said that it's not priced nearly as high as those, so you can't have it all
We went during mid term, so there was loads of kids running around the restaurant at dinner and again at breakfast - can't be helped - we suspected this might be the case.
Overall would recommend, but not a magical experience, and didn't feel leaving that we'd been truly spoiled - because in truth we hadn't
If i can just mention a previous reviewer stated that she didn't get good service because she didn't tip?? - this in my opinion is preposterous and insulting to the staff - i tipped some and not others and makes no difference.
