“21 reasons to love Langham Melbourne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

For my daughters 21st we had 24 hours between Uni and work commitments to celebrate this event. On the reviews I picked the Langham for our family to catch up and eat, massage and spa, drink, sleep in and relax together. Fantastic experience from the moment we drove in, car parked, luggage brought into our rooms, cake placed in the fridge, chocolates on arrival. AMAZING beds for sleeping, Breakfast was delightful. Melbourne turned on gorgeous weather. The staff, the ambience, worth going for a feeling of luxury. Highly recommend. Sisters are now watching this space. Weddings have been fantasised about, lots of reasons to come back. Just wonderful.

Room Tip: Views of river over Melbourne were beautiful.

I stayed for four nights and from the moment I arrived, the staff were charming, helpful and accommodating. It may be an older hotel but because of that it is opulently elegant not opulently garish. Staying club level is a must. It is perfect for a relaxing holiday but also conveniently located to all that Melbourne has to offer. The facilities such as bar, restaurant and spa have a lovely ambience. I will only come back to Melbourne if I can stay here!

Stayed here for the tennis, paid through the nose and it was worth every cent.

We had a standard room and it was excellent. Very clean, well appointed and quiet.

The hotel is superbly located by Southbank, but just slightly away from the main city centre, which is excellent.

The hotel breakfast was first class and very enjoyable.

Service on check in, check out, at breakfast and in the bar were all excellent.

All in all, it deserves its reputation as Melbourne's best hotel.

Room Tip: We went for the cheapest and it was very good.

I booked the Langham based on Trip Advisor reviews and found it completely over- rated. The entrance is down a back alley, apart from a brief stretch of restaurants the location can only be described as tatty. Although it is walking distance to many places you have to walk through the decidedly seedy Flinders Station area. The rooms are ok but took ages to warm room above chilly, it was also very noisy with screaming kids in adjoining room. There is very poor sound- proofing. While staff have smiles glued to their faces they give the distinct impression they are just doing the job. It is an average hotel not a great hotel. This is definitely over-rated to a major extent.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your valuable feedback following your recent stay at The Langham, Melbourne. We aim to offer a sense of welcome. Our entrance is a large private Porte Cochere off the main Southbank street, City Road. It has a classic English sculpture garden of oak trees, manicured topiary and seasonal plants. We trust you were greeted at the carpeted Front Door by a bowler hatted doorman and luggage offered to be taken to your room. There are two bridges over the river into the city from the hotel. The alternative route is to leave the hotel from the Podium exit and wander through the top level of the Southgate shopping complex and across Princes Bridge into Federation Square. I am sorry your room controlled thermostat did not heat your room quickly enough. We have advised engineering to investigate. We hope you will consider staying with us again

We stayed in a club room and it was worth every penny. The staff in the club lounge were brilliant, especially one guy, unfortunately I didn't get his name, he looked quite young and was Asian and was so friendly, helpful and efficient. Everything in the room was great, the attention to detail made us feel so valued. The location of this hotel was also ideal.n we stayed for four nights and I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

Room Tip: Stay in a club room overlooking the river

My family chose to stayed at the Langham because of its location. We all came from different states of Australia and chose this hotel as our destination to celebrate my mum's 70th birthday. We enjoyed our entire experience. We had club suites and liked everything about the rooms, cleanliness, bathrooms & views. Loved the day spa & the club lounge but most of all it was the staff at the hotel that helped to make our stay a memorable one, nothing was too much trouble, they provided real customer service from the moment we arrived until the moment we left, quite rare to find such personalised service these days. Overall great experience

Stayed at the Langham for the first time with family and had a very good experience. The place is great - all the amenities you need. The service is top notch. The location is great. The kids spent hours in the pool. The only negatives - dated decor and expensive parking. Better off parking at Crown 10mins down the road.

Room Tip: We were on level 17 - the higher the floor the better
