Just an overnight stay but very nice and comfortable. Welcoming staff with genuine, lovely attitudes to customer service. Although this is a period building, the facilities are modern and clean. We would much prefer to stay in a hotel such as this, rather than a multi storey 5 star.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this boutique old style hotel. Room was very clean. Very Nice Bed. Close to city centre and far away from the city noise. Would recommend to friends and family. Tram just outside and only few stops to finders street...close to commercial and toorak rds.

We really enjoyed our stay at this comfortable, quaint old-world hotel on the lovely, leafy St Kilda Road. The room was quiet, clean and serviced daily. The staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast was the option we chose and we enjoyed it each day. The Christmas decorations in the foyer, restaurant and reading room were delightful. We enjoyed... More

This historic mansion has been converted into a boutique hotel, and is beautifully restored, giving an ambience of charm, warmth and history. The best part is that all of this is a fraction of the price of any of the modern hotels in the city centre. The location of the hotel on St.Kilda Road means you stay in the heart... More

A beautiful affordable hotel in a great part of Melbourne. 5 mins to city, 5 mins to Chapel St and 5 mins to St Kilda. Rooms are a nice size, comfortable and clean. Interiors are old fashioned but definitely not daggy or dated. We were very impressed!! Would stay here again. Downside - parking is an additional cost.

Wonderful restful stay. Friendly and efficient staff, beautifully updated room that retrained the old world charm. Eccentric breakfast and conveniently located between St Kilda, City and Prahan. Highly recommend and I will be making this my to go place for Melbourne visits.

I took my 11 year old son down to Melbourne and we stayed at the Hotel Charsfield for 4 nights at the beginning of December 2014. I did not want to stay in a modern box in the city and the Hotel Charsfield is certainly not that. We had a twin room at the rear of the hotel that was... More

We were slightly disappointed with our stay at the Charsfield, but this was only really down to our room, We had booked a deluxe double as these looked nice on the web site, but were given a junior suite on the ground floor at the back. This was not a nice room, the bedroom area and bathroom were cramped, there... More

We loves the small boutique feel of this hotel and personal attention to detail. On arrival we were greeted with a complementary drink and were able to sit on the front verandah and watch the world go by on St Kilda road. We chose here because we were attending a function close by. The old world charm came with a... More

Good location, 5 min team from city. Breakfast was mediocre... Some of it cold, beans and sausage a little anaemic. All staff were knowledgable and friendly. Room was really small but clean. Good value for money. Would stay again if on a budget. Not enough room to relax if on a long stay.
