Almost forty years ago we spent the first night of our honeymoon in a then wonderful Lygon Lodge. Sadly time has not treated the place kindly at all. There were just too many difficult issues to ignore. The hotel signage is incredibly easy to miss, the rear parking access is not explained before arrival, the apartment was poorly maintained, the...

Thick black hairs in the spa bath put me off - the place didn't appear dirty or grimy - but maybe the cleaner needs to wear a hair net. The UHT milk portions provided were frozen in a slab of ice in the fridge - made me wonder how long they had been there. free parking was the reason I... More

This is a great property at a reasonable price, centrally located to the cafes and restaurants of Lygon St and within easy reach of the CBD. The property was clean and tidy and there was no street noise. The reception staff were friendly and helpful

This hotel is a great value. My room was a little apartment with a kitchen, sofa, and desk. The room was clean and comfortable. My stay was quiet and enjoyable after long days walking in the city. The staff here is friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. For US travelers: Ask the front desk for an outlet... More

This beaut motel is in the centre of busy Carlton amid great shopping, wonderful eateries and very close to the city. The accommodation was all you could want plus a big balcony and the best shower I've ever had. We stayed in Room 305. I recommend it.

Lygon Lodge sits in the middle of some of Melbournes best restaurants. Have now stayed here 4 times and found staff helpful on every occassion. Free parking is an absolute bonus in Melbourne. Free WiFi, rooms comfortable. Front rooms have balcony and were not noisy as expected.

Spacious room, spotlessly clean. Self contained with good kitchen facilities. Free Wi Fi and parking. Conveniently placed for many city attractions. Comfortable bed, quiet, reception available 24hrs. Car park entrance at the back, not the one next door.

I chose LL for price, which was very competitive. The room was clean and well-looked after. Front desk service was friendly and staff very helpful. The location is perfect for people who want the Lygon St experience, though I chose it because it was within walking distance to Uni of Melbourne. The room was comfortable and the wifi worked well.... More

Found this motel on Trip Advisor. Even though the motel is located on Lygon Street, the rooms are set back off the street. Off street, secure parking accessed from a back lane. Room was extremely quiet. Bed was comfortable and bathroom had been recently renovated. Situated right amongst the restaurants. Walking down Lygon street you could easily miss this little... More

We checked in late, so there were no car parking spaces left and this was the only negative about this hidden little gem. The bed was comfortable and even though the room was small, was more than adequate for our needs. The bathroom was clean and the water pressure good. It's great that the front desk is maned 24hrs, so... More
