We stayed here 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The tram line passes right in front of the hotel on St. Kilda Rd. Good breakfast and rooms very well appointed and have all the things you'd want. Helpful staff gave lots of ideas on what to see, do, and eat. Loved the old fashioned style with a billiards room,... More

Stayed nights 7th and 8th May. Arrived early to drop off bags and was told my room was ready so was able to check in early. On the day of my departure I asked if I could leave one hour past check out and was told I could leave two hours past checkout! Room size was perfectly fine. Would not... More

Stayed here for the first time Saturday night. The parking was free just around the corner in the side street. The staff were very pleasant. We booked the accommodation on the internet and obtained a late checkout, a bottle of wine on arrival and upgrade if available. Well when we arrived the gentleman booking us in told us the wine...

this hotel was well reviewed but it was a bit out of town and offered no food in the evening. There was supposed to be limited room service but non responsive, Clean and quaint but not enough service for how far from everything it was. Breakfast was a happening thing though and the staff were nice.

Dear otter369, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am sorry to hear that you found the hotel a bit out of town. Trams are very convenient outside the hotel to travel to the CBD or St Kilda in under 10 minutes each way. Where you will also find lots of restaurants for dining, however there... More

Actually we did! One night at the start of our visit for the Cricket World Cup - and a couple later on. Comfortable and slightly old-fashioned. But in a nice way! Not a location or experience to rave about. But gave us absolutely NO cause for complaint. If we were in Melbourne again - we wouldn't hesitate to stay ay... More

Hotel Charsfield is a wonderful place to stay in Melbourne. Obviously if you like contemporary, slick minimalist accommodation, Hotel Charsfield is not for you, but if you appreciate helpful unpretentious staff, history and gracious old buildings, Hotel Charsfield is perfect. Many original architectural features have been retained in the foyer, staircase and public areas of the hotel which remind me... More

My wife and I stayed here during a recent business trip. We booked a deluxe room downstairs. The staff were really helpful and friendly for the whole stay and we felt it was just like home from home. The only downside was that the bathroom was a bit on the small side, but other than that we were more than... More
