We return each year to Melbourne for an extended stay visiting family so we look for somthing more than just a hotel room. This stay was our first at The Lyall and we honestly believe to have found our new home away from home in Melbourne.
We were welcomed by a friendly desk staff who during our 11 night stay always displayed the same friendly approach and were always available responding to any type of request.
Our room was a super deluxe one bedroom suite on the top (4th) floor of the hotel. The room offered large living, sleeping and bathroom areas and a small fully equipped kitchen which was also equipped with a clothes washer/dryer. We made little use of the kitchen since the South Yarra area offered so many great places to eat within easy walking distance. Above all else we enjoyed a beautifully restful sleep each night undisturbed by any noises from the corridor or outside. We are fussy about hotel beds and pillows but we found the king size bed in our suite perfect for us both.
Being a small hotel breakfasts were served in the bar/bistro area beside reception. There is no buffet but a full breakfast menu with tables served by the staff serving both breakfast tables and reception at the same time. For this reason we found the table service a little slow sometimes but the our morning coffee was always delivered to our liking...hot.
We will definitely stay again at The Lyall and look forward to our next visit.
