“Boasting bucketloads of personal charm, this is a quiet escape within close proximity to Melbourne’s centre. Décor throughout is understated and elegant, and there’s a prominent feeling of zen. Rooms are stylish and practical, and the Juliette balconies and large terrace options are a nice addition to your living space. Patrons here particularly love the tranquility of the surrounding leafy streets, and the spa is a favourite with repeat guests.”
The Lyall is a discreet getaway in a calm neighbourhood of South Yarra, a 30-minute walk via the Botanical Gardens to the city, the popular Toorak Road, and Chapel Street precincts.
The property presents an immediate feel of intimacy and warmth, and the décor throughout is understated and elegant. The one and two bedroom apartments are each furnished in a contemporary style with private bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen. Rooms have Juliette balconies or a large terrace and look out over a canopy of trees.
Bistro Lyall serves seasonal dishes in a relaxed setting or al fresco on the terrace. The small champagne bar is the ideal spot for a pre-dinner drink, and the adjacent lounge - which features an open fire and small library - is a great spot for an after dinner moment.
The Lyall Spa is highly regarded for pampering beauty and relaxation therapies. There’s also a gym and bikes are available to borrow.
