We enjoyed a wonderful evening, celebrating our daughter’s 30th Birthday, with family and friends. The service was excellent and the food, superb. The wine selection was extensive. All in all, a most enjoyable experience. We hope to visit again, in the Summer, and take in those beautiful views.

This was our second visit to Lyth Valley Hotel and unsure if we would visit again. Up on arrival the receptionist was pleasant but not overly attentive. When we dropped our bags off in the room we decided to have a drink in the bar area. The only noise you could hear was the chatter of two members of staff, cutlery and glassware. The evening meal service was acceptable but my meal was not great. The soufflé starter was lovely but my main of fish and chips totally bland (This was mentioned at the end of the meal). Breakfast was just ok. Having arrived home later that day my wife noticed that her card had been charged twice, she in turn informed the hotel who apologised and said they would issue a refund immediately but as yet (Day after) it has not shown up on statement. And just to add we should of received a £10 discount against our evening meal because we booked direct with the hotel but this did not appear on our final invoice. Overall not a great experience.

Please accept our apologies that your stay did not match your first visit. I would like to apologise if you found the service not as attentive as our usual high standards. The refund has been made on the same day, although this does take a couple of working days to go through. Unfortunately the £10 dinner credit applies to full price (direct) bookings only, you received a 20% discount on accommodation due to being a repeat guest. I hope that clarifies a few things for you and we hope you will return to stay with us again, where I am sure you will find our usual high standards of service.

We had a great time (again) the service room and food excellent. The room red squirrel was lovely,ONLY bedside cabinets on either side of bed (to store socks an underwear).would be much better than the tables.

The Lyth has become a regular haunt for us and didn't disappoint. The restaurant was quite busy and as a result was extremely loud, the food was as good as ever.

The hotel was very quiet and we ate on our own in the evening which was OK but not ideal. There food and service was very good. The breakfast was also fine. Just felt there could have been more cereal and fruit options.

We really enjoyed our 2 day stay at the Lyth Valley. Staff in the restaurant and bar were pleasant and professional. The food on both evenings was beautifully presented and delicious. Compliments to the chef and thank you for a lovely break.

We would highly recommend The Lyth Valley, The rooms are comfortable & each room is individually decorated. The food is excellent from the varied choice at breakfast to the wonderfully presented meals in the evening , the staff make you feel so welcome & are always helpful. We like it so much that we are returning in the New Year for the 5th time !!

All the staff were just brilliant, from the very warm welcome we received and the service we received making our birthday party such a success. The standard of food is second to none, staff go the extra mile to ensure your experience is what you will remember for a long time. I would advise the hotel to everyone. We will certainly be coming again, when next up in the Lake district

We had a fabulous stay. Every detail is perfect at the hotel. The room was beautiful, spotlessly clean with an amazing view. The service we had throughout our stay was faultless, the young girl and lad working ran the bar and restaurant very well. Really excellent service. The food was 5* and we will be back!
