The Lyall Hotel and Spa is South Yarra’s hidden gem. The five star hotel is tucked away on leafy Murphy Street, a few blocks back from the shopping mecca of Chapel Street.
It is as elegant as it is luxurious, boasting 40 suites to suit a variety of tastes and budgets, with the pick of the bunch being the platinum suite – complete with two fireplaces and a generous outdoor terrace.
Bistro Lyall (downstairs) serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner, or you can always opt to have your meal in your room (or on your beautiful balcony – as we did).
There is also a three-level, eight-treatment-room spa which provides the perfect place to unwind after a hard day shopping on Chapel.
