The Lyall Hotel, Melbourne

This leading and award winning boutique hotel at an elegant Melbourne address is renowned for its contemporary oriental style that runs throughout its 40 suites, replete with champagne bars and private terraces. The only privately owned and operated 5* hotel in Australia, the Lyall offers a tailor made service that attracts an elusive celebrity cliental, and will be sure to delight you with a delicate and personal touch. The spa is world class and we can guarantee that a week spent here will leave you feeling as fresh as if it had been a full year.


Only a few kilometres from central Melbourne and moments away from the Royal Botanical gardens, the Lyall hotel is in Melbourne’s ultra-trendy suburb of South Yarra. This prestigious area is decked out in designer shops, quant cafes and night life aplenty, yet still retains a quiet suburban feel. The Yarra river that meanders throughout the district and the ample public parks gives this charming suburb a home away from home feel.

Your room

All suites have king sized luxurious beds that capture an opulent mood perfect for your stay and each, from deluxe to platinum has a private terrace. The bathrooms are particularly clever, with mist free mirrors, double shower heads and underfloor heating. A pillow menu is provided to further ensure a most comfortable stay.

Why we like it

The Lyall hotel is stylish in its interior design and outlook, with start of the art amenities and a lavish bar, but what is most striking about this place is its dedication to the arts. A gallery rests on every floor with pieces from local artist Thierry B dotting the walls.
