Concierge staff very attentive, polite and professional in terms of dealing with their customers. The dining facilty, though little limited on the space is great for the morning breakfast or just coffee and cake. Over all very pleasant stay

Quiet and pleasant

Posted May 26, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: Quiet, and a touch of class...felt a bit like discovering a well kept secret.
Cons: Can't think of anything...it was great !
Location: The location is a minutes walk away to terrific shopping and restaurants, galleries.
I was recommended to the Lyall Hotel by a friend....I will most definitely be returning here on any future trips to Melbourne. The decor is very tasteful , staff terrific...it is quiet , and just a very pleasant place in every respect.

An excellent hotel.

My husband and I, both in our sixties, were very pleased with the facilities of The Lyall Hotel. The Deluxe suite we had was excellent and we were able to relax in the separate living room. The facilities in the kitchen area of the suite were very good and having a washing machine was a bonus especially when we had been living out of a suitcase for a week and before travelling on a long haul flight. We didn't use the dishwasher as we ate out most nights at some of the great restaurants in South Yarra which were within walking distance from the hotel. Although we did use taxis to go out at night we did use the public tram which we could get near the hotel and this made it easy to get into the centre of Melbourne. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The only negative point is that the service at breakfast could be slow at times but the staff were apologetic about this and the great breakfast made up for that. We will certainly stay at the Lyall again next time we are in Melbourne.

My second stay at The Lyall did not disappoint!! I remembered it so fondly and was very pleased to find the warm, friendly and very professional staff just the same. Gorgeous rooms and champagne by the fireplace is a must. Thanks guys!

Good location for shopping

Not a five star experience. Not value for the rate we were charged possibly because it was the Formula One weekend. Would not recommend it at the same rate
