“Langtastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Langham in Auckland, and figured that for our last night on a recent trip to Melbourne we could afford to try the Melbourne Langham for a night of luxury.

Best. Idea. Ever.

First up, our club room was triple upgraded to a MASSIVE spa suite room. The room was spotlessly clean, ridiculously comfortable, and filled with little surprises (e.g. green tree frog chocolates!). The bathroom was one of the best we've seen in a hotel; well designed with beautiful marble and bigger than our first apartment.

After standing in sheer awe of the room for a good hour or so and thanking the hotel gods for the bounty we'd received we headed for the complimentary high tea in the Langham club. The treats and tea were delicious, and the club had the best view of Melbourne city that we'd seen since arriving. The staff were friendly and only too happy to assist in making our afternoon even more fantastic than it already was.

We returned to the club later that night for drinks and canapes, and again marveled at the view and the fantastic service from the staff while our heads slowly filled with free alcohol and delicious food. In the morning, we headed back for a delicious breakfast. Every time we went the staff were attentive and friendly.

We could not fault the Langham on any part of the experience, and couldn't be thankful enough for the upgrade and the wonderful service they provided. It's easy to see what keeps them at number 1 on Tripadvisor!

Room Tip: If you're planning on staying, make sure you get access to that Langham club!

Stayed at the Langham for a weekend for the first time and was blown away with the friendly and professional service by the staff. I am a well seasoned traveller and have stayed at a number of 5 star hotels but have not seen such exceptional service by the staff. The bed was so soft and comfortable it was like sleeping on a cloud. The room was wonderful and clean. Melba's resurant again great service and great food. I would not hesitate to stay there again, and would recommend this hotel to others.

Stayed here overnight. Close to everything. Rooms are large and fitted out well. All the staff efficient and friendly.

Forgot the butter with my room service and it came up immediately together with a large block of chocolate to say sorry.

Beds are devine - so comfortable and soft.

My favourite hotel now

My daughter shouted me a night at the Langham for Mothers day and it was amazing. We had a double room with views of the river, everything you needed was in the room and when checking in the staff were friendly and very attentive. The turn down service at night was a nice touch with slippers left beside the bed, and the bed itself was like nothing I have ever slept in, very comfy indeed.
I would also have to say that Megan was a great hostess and a great asset to the hotel her professionalism was outstanding, would recommend this hotel to anyone for a romatic weekend to a girls shopping weekend as it is close to everything that you would need while in Melbourne

Room Tip: ask for a high room as the view is amazing and very quiet

We stayed for 1 night at the Langham in a King room. Was a short walk to the Casino and great choice of restaurants and also to the MCG to catch a footy game. The service of every staff member at the Langham from the valet to the cleaner was exceptional...a real credit to the hotel. Loved the turn down service that let me know the weather the next day and made the bed all cozy. The king bed was amazing! Get the brekky deal because the freshly made pancakes were delicious. Will definitely go back.

Went with the gang to the Australian open and stayed at the Langham. All the travel sites recommended it, even this one. walked in. WOW. nice. from the grand entrance with the waterfalls to the registration to the rooms. Well done. the service was superb. they did their best to take care of us. handled our reservations for the Australian Open and even set up our diving trip after we left Melbourne. Overall, quite impressive. Deserves a Five Star rating. Was a bit expensive because of the Open, but so were most of the other hotels. Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: some better deals apparently are possible on the travel sites. check them out.
