Negative Reviews

The water pressure isn't always great

The water pressure in the showers can vary and often it is not very strong. This could be problematic if you prefer a shower with a hard stream of water.

The WiFi is spotty

The WI-Fi at Lydford Country House is often slow and spotty which could be problematic if you want to get an email out in a hurry or use your devices. Luckily, the Wi-Fi signal is spot on in the guest lounge.

Some rooms have showers only

Some of the guest rooms at this hotel don't have bathtubs, but have showers instead. If you're a person who prefers to take a bath as opposed to a shower, be sure to request accommodations with a tub.
