8/10 Very good

Nice surprise. Kind staff.Good price & room facs.
Highly recommended for location, room inclusions, friendliness & cleanliness. Doesnt claim to be 5 star & so price is reasonable. Before i had flown out from NT the Carlton Lygon Lodge (CLL) informed me that they were not able to fill my special but late request.With the support of & with LCC learning of my whole situation, management of LCC then organised an excellent alternative at no extra cost to me...which more than met my needs. This resulted in my having a very comfortable and welcome stay. Carlton Lygon Lodge is not 5 star, but it doesnt claim to be. It charges a very reasonable price considering their location, having a 1pm check in & a 10.30 checkout with some flexibility. The front reception is small but close to an accessible lift and stairs. My room was clean and included extras such as a small table, sofa, kitchenette with microwave, toaster, table and desk, etc. Lights were many, so the room could be lit according to guests needs. (Unlike some other places I have stayed in with just 1 room light & a small bedside lamp.) Thank you Carlton Lygon Lodge for your kindness and understanding.

This was a great pick for something that had the basics needed for a no fuss short stay. While some of the decor was dated it provided an excellent bed,

The refrigerator was noisy when operating. It was a convenient location. The passageway to the elevator was cluttered. There were some noisy cars in the parking area below our room. A shelf or basket for storing toiletries in the shower would be helpful.
