While parking my car on arrival I was told off by a man who didn't like the way I parked. It turned out to be the owner, at the time I had no idea who he was, he just came up, no introduction, and started bossing me around. Not a great welcome. On the second night the car park was... More

Remember when you used to check into hotel accommodation and got a warm and friendly welcome? I had almost forgotten what it was like until I met Bob. Not only was our 4 night stay a delight in a lovely renovated room with excellent housekeeping, but they went an extra mile when overseas visitors we were hosting were placed in... More

My Husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Lodge as it was his birthday, the owner gave as an lovely renovated room which was clean, with everything we needed and the kitchen was a plus. Check in was very easy and fuss free, staff are friendly, and the atmosphere is very laid back. The location sold me as the... More

Stayed here as our Apartment was having repairs. Excellent location, clean/neat, modern accommodation, 24 reception and free off street parking is an real plus. Very rare to have the owner making you coffee in the morning, while having a chat/drink whilst watching the footy with staff in the evening. If you enjoy value, friendly, easy going service, with simple, well... More

I've stayed at Lygon Lodge on each of my trips to Melbourne. The position of the hotel couldn't be better and really gives you the opportunity to get a taste of Melbourne life. I've stayed in a number of the Studio apartments at the hotel and each one is modern with all necessary amenities to make your stay an enjoyable... More

My partner and I are becoming regulars. The proprietors, Bob and Irma, are a delight. Anecdotes flow freely over a glass on the pavement. Rooms are modern, and more than adequate for visitors who are there to explore the city. Location cant be faulted. Park on site, and see Melbourne by public transport. Very handy for a tram stop, with... More

I have never felt moved to write a review about an experience however my stay at Lygon lodge last week deserves to be heard of. One night, Bob and Irma the proprietors, invited me to sit with them out the front of their hotel. Before i knew it, Bob's anecdotes had me and everyone in stitches. A man with 100... More
