  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

It was a small hotel so fairly personal- small enough to care. The only thing was the washing machine and dryer was out of order.

Our favourite hotel in Melbourne - great location (close to restaurants and shops) and very convenient to Sth Yarra train station and tram stop (3mins walk). On this stay the Nespresso machine and clothes washer/dryer were no longer in the room, and the dishwasher was not working. Clearly some money has to be spent keeping this property up to scratch, instead of resting on (past) laurels. Staff are excellent, and they are THE best asset of the Lyall. Ray Choy
