“Almost right...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2008

I stayed at the Langham in a twin room with my sister who was in Melbourne on business. I opted for this hotel as I love luxury, having worked in the luxury hotel business for several years. We booked a package which included breakfast, valet parking and late check-out. The personnel were great, especially the concierge. The room was average. For the price, the little details were not as expected - wallpaper peeling from the cornices, a sweet wrapper beside the television and a tear in upholstery on the armchair. The breakfast was great, however tea bags just didn't do justice to the five star experience. For the price, I believe an update is in order. Lovely sleep in a great bed, quiet location.

Stayed at the Langham for 2 nights after flying in from London. The staff were very professional and helpful and the rooms were of a good size. The rooms felt slightly dated though. The Langham is a good 5 star hotel but the Westin Melbourne is better.

Recently stayed at the Langham for three nights, four days while enjoying a long weekend in Melbourne. Originally choose the hotel for the Chuan Day Spa but soon realised that it was perfect for our girls weekend!! We arrived at 6am on Fri morning to drop our bags off and asked if there were any free rooms so we could sleep - yes (at NO charge)!! The rooms were large, beds very comfortable and bathrooms clean and spacious. We were very impressed with the staff - the concierge was very helpful and Jessica at the Spa was brilliant. If you need some good restaurants try the Italian one (upstairs on the 1st floor of shopping centre next door) and Cervo (near Crown Casino shopping arcade). Will definately book the Langham again (try ringing up direct as 1/3 price as compared to what quoted on internet websites!!)

A pleasant stay at a generally good hotel
Location: right on the Yarra although you have to pay to guarantee a view; close to restaurants, the casino etc. About 15 min walk (or less) to the CBD.
Welcome: A beautifully attired 'older' gentleman who makes it a pleasure to arrive at the Langham
Check in: Professional
The room: A bit dated but very clean: Best feature - the bed, very comfortable; Worst feature - the OLD TV. Internet $10 per hour or $30 per day. A few things like alarm clock and lamps showing wear and tear.
Room service: expensive but good food, delivered quickly

Outstanding service all round. The staff were friendly and could not have been more helpful. The Club lounge is worth paying for not just for the food and service, but also the convivial atmosphere - the staff just seemed to have the right touch of engaging conversation without being overbearing.

The room I was allocated was spotlessly clean and completely isolated from external noise. The views over the Yarra were spectacular.

However, what is most impressive is the service. It knocks the Four Seasons chain into a cocked hat.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.

  • Liked — outstanding service - it shows the Four Seasons how to do it.

My partner and I chose to stay at the Langam overnight and feel that we got a good deal. We got our accommodation, valet parking, 2 glasses of champagne and buffet breakfast for $330.
The service was fantastic and all the staff were very helpful. We received 2 free bottles of water in the room and then another bottle waiting in our car, just a nice little touch.
The surroundings are very grand with alot of marble and a very spectacular staircase as you walk into the foyer. The rooms are a little dated but have great views of the city and the beds/pillows were very comfortable.
The buffet breakfast is beautiful and probably the best I have had in Melbourne. The range is huge and they have cooking stations with different things being cooked fresh for you. The pancakes were my favourite with fresh berries added.
They also offer a 12 noon checkout which is great so we didnt have to rush to leave.
All in all we enjoyed our stay at the langham and would stay there again.

Stayed there for 3 days on Business during July. I stayed here years ago when the Sheraton owned the hotel, they check in service was pretty average as they didnt really make you feel welcome, that was probably the only negative aspect. The restaurant was great and breakfast was world class, big gym and great day spa. Whilst i was there i got a 1 hour massage which was perfect, room was big and i liked the high ceilings, its right in the middle of southbank which is 5 mins walk to the casino. Try to book on wotif.com as i got a $199 per night deal which is about 40% of the price of what is on offer via there own website. The bar is good too, during happy hour they brought us free nuts and finger food. I would also recommend the Westin Hotel in Melbourne too but its usually $300-$400 per night.
