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 restaurant and cinema we went to were near by, and having hundreds of cafes and shops around was enjoyable with the local park having a festival on Sunday. We don't live far, but it was a very relaxing mini break and have re booked for the Melbourne cup period.

On the 13/10/12 me and my wife stayed in room 116 at the hotel for my wife's 25th birthday and the tap of the shower had fallen off and made it quite difficult to have a hot shower, and the toliet would not the flush - which become very embarring for both of us after a big night on the town,
We also found that the sugar with the coffee making facilites was half already used and a few of the power points and lights did not work.
We payed $150 for the nights stay and we are very disgusted that after discussing the issue with the manager all we were offered was a discounted stay next time - but there will not be a next time. I will taking this further as this not fair for us especially for my wife as it was for her birthday.

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 pointed rooms, than "We" are happy to recommend Lygon Lodge.

Room Tip: Ask for the newly renovated Front rooms, great street atmosphere from your balcony.

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 one. As a family run business the hospitality of the hosts really stands this hotel apart from your big chains & often you'll find yourself sitting out the front having a meal or drinking a wine with them, which all adds to the Melbourne experience.

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 a 'myki' shop across the road.
Carlton is renowned for it's eateries and coffee shops.
Well worth a stay.

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 funny stories. throughout the night, beverages were offered along with some very tasty european entree dishes that Irma had prepared in their kitchen.

I found them to be a down to earth realistic couple, who are running a family business that has a genuine interest in keeping their customers happy. Most hotels have a clinical approach in that there receptionist is overly aware of being politically correct and or only do the minimum required, or is overly enthusiastic which leaves you with a fake kind of impersonal feeling. Bob and Irma are quite the opposite, genuine, straight forward which leaves you with that sense of moral values.

Rooms are freshly painted, carpeted and tiled. new tv, bed, shower. furniture looks new with a little kitchenette. Rooms have electric key swipe tags that you find in modern motels.
Fully enclosed undercover parking area.

Room Tip: simply ask for a renovated room!
