My wife and I spent a night here recently as part of a weekend getaway. The Charsfield has been beautifully renovated and maintains close links to it's past history. It has excellent access to the city, being in StKilda Rd but the winning formula for me is it's character and charm. From the delightful Reading Room to it's Billiard Room,... More

We have just spent a perfect weekend in this beautifully renovated hotel. The decor of the public spaces is in keeping with the period of the Hotel.

We thoroughly recommend this hotel - clean, comfy, friendly & efficient staff, situated close to transport. Stayed 4 nights in a Junior Suite, great value for money. The restaurant is great too, really enjoyed the breakfasts. We go to Melbourne often, so will definitely stay there again. Meryl & Rob, Adelaide SA

I previously reviewed The Charsfield about a year ago, finding it a gem. It is so pleasing to find it still as lovely and full of character a year on. The reception staff are friendly and efficient and the hotel has a great feel and a great location on St Kilda Rd.

Fell in love with the photos of this on the net, not really knowing where it was in relation to anywhere!!! Booked it anyway, great place, the rooms themselves were rather large.
