                          Helpful, polite, kind and prompt staff. Hotel Bistro mediocre, but many good alternatives within easy walking distance. Small but clean and well organised space.

                          Showers are poorly designed and feel small and uncomfortable. Leaking all over...Could not the get Spa treatment I wanted.

                          We liked the location. It was very central to restaurants and shopping and close to the tram. The staff were very helpful

                          Staff who knew us from previous stays were very warm and welcoming.

                          Room 404 was a disappointment after previous stays. The bedroom wardrobe with an incorporated TV, safe and drawers does not work and became an irritation.It made us feel that The Lyall is showing signs of age.

                          The staff were outstanding, the whole experience from booking to checkout was a pleasure. Nothing was too much trouble for all staff, particularly the 2 guys who set up your dinner on Sunday night. My thank s to them. All together a very worthwhile experience

                          I would improve the quality of the toilet paper.
