Myself and my girlfriend have recently returned from a mid week break from the Lyrath hotel. As the title suggests we were a little underwhelmed by what the hotel offers. I normally take to Trip Advisor to write positive reviews but I was really disappointed by the Lyrath as I had heard great things about the place. I find it...

We stayed here last weekend. We booked an executive room. The hotel made a mistake with our booking. There was a wedding that weekend and we were put into a double room, I'd imagine in the hope that we didn't notice the difference. We brought it to their attention but they didn't change our room as agreed or send up the...

I stayed a night in this hotel and used their Signature Spa Package for the Valentines Day and it was absolutely fabulous. Completely different to any other spa packages I have ever experienced and the staff were very friendly, accomodating, professional and you could tell they were very experienced! I would definately do it again!
