“Spectacular!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Spent the Christmas there. Being a long way from home over Christmas, the Langham gave a very chritmassy feel! Beautifully decorated. Great central location to Melbourne. Great service from staff.
Difficult to get into a hotel restaurant - we hadn't thought it through though, as it was Christmas Eve/Day. But would have been nice for hotel to say "we'll be busy do you want a reservation".

However, still a great place to stay.

We stayed here for three nights at a discounted rate using wotif/a summer special offer. It was still pretty pricey but everything was absolutely amazing.

The location is great, just on the south bank of the river, 5 mins walk to town and 15 to the MCG. Beautiful riverside views too.

Service was outstanding - all of the staff were helpful and friendly and really make the place very special. And the buffet breakfast is awesome....we are quite well travelled and think it is the best hotel breakfast we have ever seen! It's like a smaller version of the brunches you get in Dubai.

We had a Grand River King room for one night before Christmas. We arrived to the temp in Melbourne of 39deg and so the air con was very effective in the room. The room itself was very comfortable, clean and had a wonderful view over The Yarra towards Flinders Station and Federation Square. The bed was superb! We had a good buffet breakfast in The Melba but one negative. There was only one chef dealing with numerous requests for eggs/omelettes etc. resulting in too many guests hanging around waiting and causing confusion! We had afternoon tea in Aria which included the Chocolate Bar as it was a Sunday. This was an increased price to the weekday tea of which we were not aware of at the time as it had not been explained to us in detail. However, having queried the matter it was all resolved very quickly and satisfactorily. The pool/spa area was very busy with children and adults when we visited and we only stayed a short time as it was quite noisy. Apart from the couple of blips mentioned our stay at The Langham was super!

Every aspect of the stay was truly excellent - interactions with all staff, food and rooms.

We asked for and received early check-in (8am), late check out (1pm), fast check out and had airport transfers flawlessly organised by the hotel.

Business Club offers fantastic breakfast and free afternoon drinks and snacks.

The only reason for a reduced mark on rooms is that there should be a better selection of TV channels.

A good hotel in a good location. Great views over the river, lovely roon, beautifully decorated, very clean and a good size. The food was good but on the expensive side. Service was patchy at times, nothing major just not as slick as you would expect from this standard of hotel e.g. Restaurant slow to replace drinks and clear plates. Internet access which is often free in this type of hotel was expensive

Room Tip: Request a river view room

The Langham does give what you would expect. Luxurious surroundings, well appointed public spaces, great furnishings, luxury bedrooms and oversize superbly comfortable beds. All this at a price. Service is excellent throughout. Great choice of buffet in the restaurant though we ate a la carte and it was equally good. In room breakfast for one certainly was enough for two. Right on the Southbak overlooking the river with many restaurants nearby. The City Centre just a short walk across the river bridge. What a shame they charge for WiFi as this really should be in the room rate.

Room Tip: Choose Grand River room for best view of river and city. Great view at night.

Moved from the Rendevouz Hotel in Flinders St to here in January 2013 and immediately wished we had stayed here in the first place. While not overly cheap the rooms are large, elegantly appointed, quiet and well maintained.

The bed is just about the most comfortable I have ever slept in.

The surrounds are lovely and have a scenic and safe and upmarket feel about them.

The service was outstanding and the food delicious.

From the minute we walked in we knew we were in the right place.
