The Lyall is modern and clean and very well organised. Rooms are spacious. Ours had a lounge area, kitchenette and a separate bedroom. The staff are wonderful and can't do enough for you. The spa is also a must. There is a choice of top restaurants within a walk and the tram and train are nearby. The building to the... More

Booked here for a bit of pampering for a girlfriends birthday. Communicating with the spa manager was a breeze and the staff were immensely helpful in ensuring our day was wonderful. After what was one of the best massages I have had in a long time, we were invited to the outdoor terrace area where we got to indulge in... More

As Boutique hotels go, the Lyall is definitely worth the stay. Not quirky, nicely finished with all the amenities in a location that is fantastic and away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne, but close enough to walk to it if you want it.

The Lyall is a great boutique hotel in the hear of the South Yarra. If you want to get out of the CBD and your not one for large hotel chains, then the Lyall may be your new best friend. With 24 hour concierge and a nice (and very small) restaurant, it offers all the usual amenities of a large... More

The Lyall is a fantastic little oasis in a very convenient position. Although the rooms are not huge, they are practical and very very comfortable. Given the layout with the separate bedroom, my husband getting up at 3am to watch rugby world cup was not even a blip on my radar! The staff were very attentive, had very helpful ideas... More

I wanted to not like the Lyall this time but as usual the service, the turn down service, the peaceful breakfast were all the usual standard. Problem is got the noisy side even though we asked for the other. Apparently an upgrade. They did offer a bottle of wine as compensation. Really? Just don't go for the upgrade.

The Lyall. What a grand experience: an elegant old style hotel maintained to the highest standard. Beautiful clean luxurious rooms complement the tastefully appointed interiors throughout. From the sumptuous breakfast till 2 to the cheerful "Goodnight Sir" at day's end, the Lyall has everything we could have wanted. And more. All this with a touch of South Yarra "Ooh-la-la". We...

Horrible experience, very rude and a complete rip-off. Would never go there again and certainly can not recommend going to the spa to anyone!!
