“brilliant location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Stayed here for a business trip great to get back from a grueling day to be able to walk out of the hotel door and be able to walk to some of the best eateries in the world. They upgraded a few of our group from shared rooms to single rooms. Beds were great good size bathroom free parking was a great perk. Staff were great will definitely be a return customer

The reception experience is pretty casual, reminiscent of an Italian family-run pensione, but it is friendly. The room was small but clean and well-appointed. The bathroom was quite small but the shower was roomy. The kitchenette was well appointed and equipped. We were at the back but still got garbage truck noise in the early hours. I think I would push for a front room on Lygon Street next time. All in all a great spot for our purposes.

My mum and I stayed in room 116 the tap is still broken. All in all it was okay for $150 a night in Lygon Street. Couldn't open the wardrobe door due to the two beds in the unit. However a fair place to stay when getting out and about in Melbourne is the main reason for your stay.

We did a 3 week tour of parts of Australia in March 2013,visiting relatives & sight seeing.Our accommodation varied immensly but Lygon Lodge stands out as the jewel in the crown.Very friendly welcome,superb clean room with excellent facilities,marvellous location and the nicest of owners. We have never been given a complimentary bottle of wine to take out to our meal before,unfortunately the restaurant suggested was not open that night but if they were friends of Lygon Lodge then no doubt it would have been a great evening.Just wish we could have stayed more than 1 night.

Room Tip: Not sure if all rooms have been refurbished but ask for one of those

My partner an I stayed here for the 1st time to access the Melbourne flower and garden show. Is it 5 star no its not. Was the room we were given ( 217) up to scratch yes it was and it looked out onto Lygon street, had a small balcony on which you could sit and soak up the street view and if you wanted you could sit in your room and soak up the street view through the full length picture window. Initially we were concerned about street noise and if you are sensitive to noise then the front rooms may not be for you but I can honestly say the save for 1 night when a reality TV show Professional Masterchef took over the street right in front of our room and started banging around from 5am in the morning (I have to say the food they knocked up was pretty average) we both got good sleep and enjoyed the streetview.

Were Bob and his staff up to scratch and friendly yes they all were. Could Bob do a Dr Jeckel and Mr Hyde on you probably if you cheese him off but you would probably have to try fairly hard to do so.

Parking is compact so bringing you 4 wheel drive or other large car will at least test your skills if not totally frustrate you so come Italian come compact and you will remain unstressed.

All in all this place had all it advertised for us and more particularly location location location as you can walk, tram and bus into the CBD and beyond.

Room Tip: On Lygon Street if you like to watch the passing parade with a wine in hand and don't mind a bit...

We have stayed at this Lodge when renovations were in progress so it was to my disgust that on the next stay when renovations had finished we ended up in a room with mould all over bathroom ceiling plus no top sheet and dirty marked carpet, I will never go back and I do not recommend this place when there is the Downtowner just down the road, the owner was not friendly and seemed to be happy drinking out the front with friends. Never again .

Room Tip: I don't think they have good rooms , sorry for being mean but it is the truth. We had a corner r...

We needed accommodation at last minute and Bob was very helpful and welcoming. The room was clean, beds were comfortable & bathrooms were a good size. Close to a tram stop and only 10mins on the tram (if that) to Flinders Street. Would definitely stay here again - price/location makes it a great find.
