Last minute decision to have a romantic weekend in the city of Melbourne - so glad we chose the Charsfield. The location is fantastic, far enough away from the noise of the city but close enough to walk or take a 10 min ram ride almost from the front door. We live1 hr outside of Melbourne and knew we needed a Myki card and were concerned about getting this organised but upon arrival reception had us sorted - you can buy a starter card pack for AUD14.00. This was perfect for our 2 1/2 days. Headed to Crown Gold Class via the tram. Breakfast at Charsfield. Visited the Shrine of Remembrance, walked through Botanical Gardens, cruise x 2 on the Yarra, evening drinks at Southbank, then back through the gardens and to Charsfield for dinner in the restaurant. The food & wine is of excellent quality, staff extremely courteous, and went out of there way to ensure our stay was wonderful. Charming hotel, we will return.
