Another one of those weekends sandwiched around travel across countries and it was back to Melbourne but the need for a hotel after being very kindly loaned an inner city friends apartment for the past few years. Firstly I have to say I REALLY enjoyed being back in this neighborhood - the South Yarra/Toorak border. I feel safe here, the train is just down the road, the restaurants are plentiful and you can stick to the main road late at night and feel really comfortable and safe on the walk home from restaurants in Toorak for a little further in Parrhan. The Chapel Street Caffe e Cuccina is just as spectacular as it has been since it opened. The Lyall, being more of an apartment hotel gave us room to move, to relax - spread out. Decor is little changed in the hotel, but I like it, all butter colours that are really soothing and the staff are slick without being clever, I like that. But then you know I like small and beautiful. Oh and a fab little coffee shop (hole in the wall) on the same street as the hotel before you hit the main road. Homemade muesli slice to die for and a great grab a coffee on the walk down to the train station in the morning. Was a pretty good stay. Consistent and you cant beat that!
