Major security failure and major customer service failure. Don't stay here. Woke in the middle of the night to find an unknown man using my hotel bathroom toilet - due to a faulty room lock. This awful security failure was made much worse by the dismissive attitude of the hotel. In the morning I was only able to say four...

Stayed here for three nights and was pleasantly surprised. A delightful boutique hotel set in a tree line street just around the corner from South Yarra designer shops. Short walk to South Yarra train station with regular links to greater Melbourne. Well presented generous sized rooms. Quiet and peaceful surroundings. Will definitely be back

My partner and I were looking for a quiet get-away but with a touch of luxury. This provided everything we wanted. The staff were lovely and accommodating. The Champagne bar was divine. And the spa experience was intoxicating - I recommend the Time for Two package! The hotel is in a great location for shopping, restaurants, cinemas, transport.....we walked to...

Just spent 2 nights at the Lyall. Great location for the Vic Gallery and surrounded by chic cafes and restaurants. Great shopping on Toorak Rd and Chappel Street. Our suite was comfortable and clean with more space than a normal hotel and the convenience of a kitchenette. The bed wasn't the most comfortable but staff responded well when I asked...

My husband and I had a fabulous stay and would recommend to any traveller that prefers smaller, quieter boutique hotels. Staff are extremely accommodating and friendly with rooms beautifully appointed. We will definitely be using The Lyall from now on when visiting Melbourne.

Stayed for 2 weeks and must congratulate the management and staff on excellent service and accommodation. Good size suite with everything you could want on hand. Regular turndown service and every morning and evening towel change. Breakfast could not be faulted and finally their car valet service was fast, secure and a must for Melbourne streets with parking restrictions. Will...

I have little positive to say about this property. The location is fine with choices of restaurants. There is construction on one side of the hotel; I found this out thanks to Trip Advisor.
