Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lygon Lodge has always been my go to stay when in Melbourne. It has recently been sold and this was first stay since the sale. The new consortium have continued with the same warm welcome. Lovely reception staff. Improvements were noticeable. I like to stay in a particular room, and once again it felt familiar and comfortable. I have to commend the wonderful cleaning staff, each day they left my room spotlessly clean. Lygon Lodge is in a fabulous location. Close to everything the area has to offer, such as restaurants, cafes & bars, a fabulous arthouse theatre, and wonderful bookshop, amongst other fantastic shops. Public transport nearby. Lygon Lodge ticks all the boxes.

Strategic location - nearby tram, many restaurants. Clean and comfy room. Though the hotel doesnt have bfast, the little lygon cafe is soo worth it. Coffee and toastie for just AUD10! The room was cleaned on a daily basis - overall a very good stay. 9/10!

Shower had dirty footprints in it and shower door was missing a panel, Bathroom had exhaust fan in window, but didn't work, toilet did not flush properly, free carparking was a bonus, not sure the manager spoke adequate english. Won't stay again, you get what you pay for, spend a few dollars more and upgrade to a better hotel.

It is very convenient, quiet and near lots of restaurants and Melb Uni. Not fancy but clean and good quality linen. Able to open patio door for fresh air. Staff are very friendly, helpful and professional. Certainly, will go back again. Thank you to staff.

Excellent phone service and staff very helpful. Location is good - so close to the fun atmosphere of Lygon St. Rooms are very basic - bins had not been cleaned out before our visit and the sliding door was hard to lock. Noisy as the hallways are tiled and voices carry and echo.

The location is good but very noisy for rooms close to the street. Staff were helpful but the room fittings are looking tired , in need of renovation. Basic amenities. The shower recess has a high step up that would be difficult for a person with limited mobility. The water pressure in unreliable, with hot water that takes an age to come through.

This lodge is in a great location. There is plenty of eateries in walking distance. The lodge is close to the Carlton gardens and was perfect for our visit to the Melbourne garden show. The lodge itself had everything we needed however our room could have done with a paint, clean and carpet replacement. The carpet was old and stained. If you are wanting a basic place to stay this lodge would suit.

My room had no hot water. None. I ran the tap for 20 minutes. I brought a bucket to boil water and shower in but quickly realised the wet dog smell in the bathroom was mould. Holes in towels. Awful.
