A two night special on wotif found us this Sydney gem. Fabulous location, walk to the Quay and Darling Harbour. Gorgeous old building in excellent condition, large comfortable rooms with no noise from the city or other guests whatsoever. A little bit of old fashioned grandeur, but without pretensions. The swimming pool is worth the visit in its own right. The restuarant is first class, and for the fare, is reasonably priced. What made the Langham special however was the wonderful staff. They are one and all exceptional. Cheerful, friendly, full of excellent advice of the hotel and surrounds, you don't find service like this often. Explain Sydney's bus lanes, provide an unberella for a scorcher of a day: no problem. On our second night we took the concierge's advice to dine at the Lord Nelson, the pub 100 metres down the road. Not only the oldest pub in Australia but a place to visit in itself. Great food and wine at good prices. We will stay at the Langham again when next we visit Sydney.
