We are privileged to have stayed in some of the most recognised hotels around the world - and have been involved in hotel management in Australia. All hotels range in size, style, location and their services. Having stayed regularly at the Lyall Hotel in the heart of sophisticated South Yarra (a shop-a-holics heaven) since it opened just over 10 years ago it has impressed us on every visit and ticks every criterion. It is conveniently located to the city and its attractions in a well presented and smart, comfortably furnished building. The Lyall features in-house health and beauty Spa, gym and swimming pool. The excellent off-lobby Bistro and bar are open throughout the day. The privately managed Lyall's greatest attribute is its commitment to the sadly all-too often missing SERVICE from its very efficient and pleasant staff.
