we have stayed in the Lyrath several times..we just keep going back!! the hotel itself is beautiful, the staff are very friendly and efficient. what we really like about the Lyrath is the fact that you can stay there for a weekend and not have to leave the hotel . there are two bars and two restaurants. each offering quite a different experience. the bar and reataurant downstairs offer a more traditional ambiance (the steak is excellent) while those upstairs are more modern (cocktail bar and asian restaurant). would definately recommend.
