The Lyall is a terrific small hotel down a leafy side street in South Yarra. Well located for parks, food/drink and shopping. Hotel staff super helpful, Nathan in a particular had a lot of good advice. We didn't get a chance to try out the spa services.

Don’t be fooled by the good reviews”

We really wanted to be in a quiet, off-the-beaten path hotel so we booked the Lyall. The online booking mentioned some noise and also said that construction next store would be completed by June 2018. We thought that they would be finishing inside and the noise would be mostly resolved. To ensure we got a better room, we booked a more expensive room - thinking this would be some kind of insurance against noise. When we arrived after a long flight, we were greeted by a terrific staff and checked into our room. The balcony was covered with fake greens to hide the fact that the building under construction was 5 feet from the balcony. We could look out the bedroom doors directly at construction workers. The building was still without outer walls. The only way we could get away from the noise and construction was to leave the hotel. We inquired about a different room and told 80% of the rooms are next to the construction and the owner of the hotel is is building next store. Ugh.

cant fault reception staff, very professional. room was good but a bit tired and in need of some refurbishing. bathroom trash bin was broken and i left it in 2 pieces for the cleaner. when i returned to my room the lid had been placed back on as if nothing was wrong. poor attention to detail as it should have been replaced. balcony door lock fell off on my second day. shower screen wouldn't shut properly. Someone just needs to take responsibility, have a look and fix some things.
