Fab break

Stay in Lyrath was Brill. Great atmosphere, staff very courteous, friendly, food great. The hotel needed some night entertainment,which creates good atmosphere after dinner. Would highly recommend a stay in Lyrath, location excellent gardens and walks within a must to see and enjoy.

one night stay

Everything was great except the cooked part of the buffet breakfast. This was rather tired, even at 0730 am. Rest of the buffet was excellent.

Easter Break

Although we didn't get our room until after 4.30pm (and the process did not go smoothly) we found the staff to be helpful. Dinner in the restaurant was first class. Could have done with a larger table for breakfast! Activities for children all week so hotel had lots of children around. Nice hotel, nice people, would go back.

Easter Break

Didn't get our room until 4.35 at least even though check-in is 3pm. Wasn't a smooth experience, thereafter we enjoyed our stay. Food in La Perla was delicious and the staff were friendly and helpful. A lot of activities for children so the hotel had a lot of families staying.

value midweek deal

Very comfortable and good value hotel, we paid 215 Euro for 2 nights bed and breakfast in a spacious standard room ,which was nicely and decorated with all the essential facilities and pleasant view of the estate . Upstairs bar looked very nice but was closed on the Sunday and Monday evening of our visit. Gym had limited equipment. Breakfast was good, staff very friendly. I would rate it a good four star hotel.

Amazing family welcome.. 5 star experience!

From the minute I pulled up with my family, we were treated with a warm welcome. The staff are very friendly and eager to please. My toddler loved the hotel swing and slide and if she was a little bit older we could have used the bicycles. Leisure centre pool was a big hit! We ate in the bar for lunch and dinner and the food was lovely. I look forward to returning to The Lyrath.
