“Magnificent birthday weekend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2011

The Langham Melbourne was elegant, gorgeous and so very lovely. Our room was fantastic, overlooking the Yarra and city skyline, I could have definitely taken the bed home it was so divine!

We enjoyed a lovely winter's swim, jacuzzi and took advantage of the lounges out on the deck in the Sunday morning sunshine - pure bliss. Next time am going to book into the Chuan Spa and treat ourselves just that bit more too!!

Have never had such wonderful service in a hotel, every staff member went above and beyond and made us feel like VIPs. So helpful, congenial and fun too. Being woken up from our lazy afternoon nap to a special birthday cake was really humbling, and so very delicious. The breakfast buffet was like a show - the atmosphere is so much fun - and the food is in abundance, so many choices I felt like a kid in a candy store.

We went out for dinner, and returned to our room having been "turned down" - it was such a pleasant surprise, one we've never experienced before - and I do think I have Concierge to thank as he knew we were on our way to an amazing dinner and can only imagine he had organised for us to relax our very full bellies as soon as we walked in our door! We almost had to 'jump' into the bed it looked so inviting.

Despite a weekend of food indulgence, we couldn't help ourselves and had to partake in High Tea whilst waiting for our lift back to the airport - what a way to end our delictable stay.

The Langham Melbourne is beyond doubt one of the most elegant and excellent hotels I have stayed in. We're already planning our return before the end of the year!

PS...we ordered a pair of The Langham's European pillows as soon as we got home!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 21st floor - it was fabulous - in a grand river room.

Ive stayed at alot of the Langham hotels and this was rated really high and we were so excited to try The Langham Melbourne but we think it lacks the feel of other Langham hotels. Everything here is expensive but you don't usually mind paying when the food and service are of high quality. I think there are alot of other nice hotels that you could get better value for money and a enjoyable stay in this area!

Spend sometime at the Bar....and you may as well order the very best fish sandwich.

We had a beautiful weekend with great service. The decor was elegant and romantic> The location was excellent as it is central on Southbank. I would say it is expensive for even a 5 star hotel. The Aria Bar was extremely busy both nights and afternoons on the weekend, so it you want to have a drink or high tea I suggest get there early.

Service was A1 with friendly & very helpful staff. Valet parking took care of the car. A pleasant walk to the city for shopping or shows. Didn't get the chance to try a meal there but the restaurant looked great & was full. Our spa suite was of the highest standard with views of the river and a bed to die for. We also loved the great coffee & chocolates.

My husband & I had three nights for my Birthday at this beautiful Hotel. We had lovely views of the river and city. We loved you could walk to the Casino, Restaurants and shops. A great location. We found the staff to be very helpful from the moment we arrived to the day we departed. We will defiantly stay at The Langham next time we visit Melbourne.
