Great hotel for a weekend

Posted 25-Sep-2017
Arrived on Friday afternoon. Reception staff friendly and attentive. Tom the concierge explained the amenities of the hotel and brought us to our upgraded room. The room was very large and immaculate. Plenty of toiletries ,towels and coffee making facilities. Buffet breakfast which was sumptuous. Dinner in Yindees and La Perla were very pleasant experiences very nice food and plentiful. The staff were exceptional throughout our staff. Looking forward to returning

Mid Week Break

Posted 31-Aug-2017
On our arrival we were informed that we were upgraded which was very nice. The reception staff were great. The room had a lovely aspect overlooking green fields. I had an amazing facial with Patricia, who is an extremely experienced beautician. I had some time afterwards in the Thermal Suite. It was heaven! We booked the Yindees Restaurant and explained I was a coeliac. We had ribs in honey glaze to start and they were lovely. My main was duck khao san which was way too sweet and the duck fat (of which there was quite a lot), was soggy. I sent it back and nobody came near us to check why!! My husband had a lovely chicken in green curry sauce. We finished and requested the bill and asked the manager why nobody came to check why my main was returned. She immediately apologised and said that they would not charge for the main and our wine was on the house, which was totally unexpected. The breakfasts are served in La Perla restaurant and they were delicious and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The gym could do with an upgrade as the machines are rusty.

Very nice experience

Posted 22-Jul-2017
Pros: Breakfast was great!
Location: Only a short distance from the town centre which is full of history.
Fantastic hotel and grounds. Swimming pool was nice to relax in and the breakfast was equally as good. Room was clean and big with views over the spa. I would definitely come back.

Lyrath Estate was wonderful. Jessica at the front desk was very welcoming, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area. The beds were super comfortable and the breakfast was fabulous. There was a wide variety to choose from at the buffet breakfast and the servers were excellent. The hotel lobby and grounds are lovely. We hated to leave. Thank you!
