Myself and my daughter stayed here to celebrate her birthday and also Christmas shopping. The late 2pm checkout was wonderful. The Beds luxurious. The complimentary items were very generous. They even gave my daughter a beautiful slice of chocolate cake to celebrate her birthday. All staff were friendly and caring. The breakfast - delicious. Would recommend 100%. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: I would recommend the river view even though it costs more it was well worth it

I took my mother for a 3 night linger longer package & booked a Grand River room. As an 1865 voyager member I hoped for an upgrade but was told that nothing was available. This is fine except the guest services person needed an etiquette makeover "It doesn't matter WHO you are, we're fully booked." I could have done without that. All would've been fine except we returned from a walk on day 2 to find water leaking from a light fitting over the minibar area which necessitated a room change. The duty manager and the love porter were great but our replacement room had a smashed bathroom mirror & cleat shouldn't have been marked available. Suffice it to say that we were then upgraded to a club room with all the extras and this was fantastic. Could be a bit of miscommunication or that it was the Langham staff Xmas party! Still we had aovt stay & appreciated the efforts of the staff to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I had considered the Westin as I am an SPG member & found it superb on my lady trip to Melbourne. Next trip? Undecided but the Langham is still delightful- thank u Langham Staff!!!

Great hotel stayed a few times and always good,the bar has the best daquiris and singapore slings ans im fussy.great steam room and spa overlooking the city.I did have one incident where i had charges made to my c/c after leaving but the managment sorted these out quickly with no stress.

Why would you go anywhere else for dinner the buffet is out of this world.

Room Tip: All good,heavy drapes

When first walking in all you see is the most magnificent fountain and wow was this place amazing, very pricey but very much worth it.
Stayed there for my anniversary and got a view from our massive window over the entire south bank.
staff were incredibly pleasant, room was gorgeous, but the only downfall was the cold breakfast, when paying $50pp for room service and a big breakfast you'd expect for it to be hot. Other then that this hotel is worth it's stars !!

I have stayed at the Langham a couple of times now for work and it is a great hotel. The rooms are big, the service if great. The buffet breakfast is amazing there is so much choice. But be aware that if you stay at the weekend there can be a bit of a queue at peak times so try and go earlier or later. The rooms have all the modern features but have the old world feel which makes them very cosy.

This is a really stunning hotel to experience - I have stayed twice now and have been delighted each time. I love the entrance water feature and the impressive (for Australia) lobby. The rooms are beautifully appointed. I would agree with other reviewers that bathroom toiletries should be of a higher standard - why not provide mini Aesop products or something similar? The products felt cheap. That is my one gripe. The gym and pool area is well maintained and looks impressive. The breakfast here is out of this world and totally indulgent. For example, there is a chocolate fountain, and icecream! I don't know why these items are provided as they are clearly not breakfast food. These things are great - the breakfast buffet is pretty special - but a few more interesting healthy options would not go astray. Overall I would certainly recommend this to anyone, particularly business travellers who like the finer things in life.
