“An exceptional hotel. Almost perfect.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2009

My daughter and I stayed at the Langham for a week and the hotel was absolutely gorgeous. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were always polite and courteous. It's close to everything, including public transport. The rooms was a decent size - we had two singles. Beds were very comfortable, shower and bath no problem, very very nice toiletries and well looked after. If the breakfast coffee had been hot the hotel rating would be absolutely perfect. My daughter is a gym fanatic and she rated the gym as 'excellent' for a hotel gym.

The staff were attentive and extremely pleasant at all times and the Hotel is pure Luxury!
We had a really fantastic break and would recommend The Langham to anyone who needs a little R & R.

My husband and I stayed at The Langham from 19/6 for four nights on a short break to Melbourne. Our stay was wonderful. At check in we were advised that we were in a non smoking room when I had requested a smoking room. This was smoothly sorted out and we were soon in our room on the 21st floor. Partial views of the Yarra and Southbank from our window. The room had all the amenities expected of a five star hotel. Lovely toiletries, bathrobes, in room safe, tea/coffee making facilities, iron & ironing board. We both loved the bed and pillows. Very comfortable. Our room had one of the newly installed flat screen tv's that my husband made use of.
We didn't eat in the hotel as there are so many options close by. We also didn't use the pool or spa facilities so can't comment on these.
Staff were always friendly and polite and check out was a breeze. Overall we had a great stay and look forward to staying here again. A quality hotel.

Stayed for two nights 12 / 13 June. It was fantastic, rooms were of a good size, really clean and the persoanl amenities were pretty nice. The staff were great and nothing was too much trouble, even when we needed emergency safety pins! Breakfast was great, but didn't have dinner although the afternoon teas looked pretty special!

The hotel is set out really well and we loved the spa and pool area...we had it completely to ourselves which was a treat. We ordered room service and it was fast, fresh and overall excellent - the meal sizes were generous by hotel standards and the fresh complimentary breads were a great addition.

Definitely looking forward to our next stay....even though we only live around the corner....that gives you some idea of how impressive our stay was!

This is the second time we have stayed at the Langham Hotel using Fly Buys points. The hotel is in an excellent location in the heart of Southgate i.e. close to restaurants, shops, Sunday market, Yarra River, Crown Casino (Village Cinemas) and the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.

We decided to stay here because my husband had booked tickets to a show at Crown for my birthday. In addition, there was a Print Expo at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre that weekend so everything was so close.

I received a call from the Langham a day or two before our stay - not just the routine courtesy call, but a call from David, the "Service Stylist", who wanted to know if there was anything at all he could do for us to make our stay better. He even gave me his personal phone extension in case I could think of anything later. I found this call very genuine and friendly - not a "routine" call at all.

Our room was clean and comfortable and I could not believe the amenities that we provided. Instead of just the normal shampoo and soap, there were also toothbrushes, hand shavers! Very up-market! The shower was fairly large, with a good, strong jet. We received a complementary newspaper in the morning and were able to get a late checkout for 2pm, after having a delicious lunch at the Melba Brasserie.(Just a hint with the restaurant - it is lovely but Sunday lunch is a lot more expensive than other times of the week.)

The Langham Melbourne is the perfect location to stay whilst visiting the theatre. We saw Wicked at the Regent theatre and it was only 10-15 mins walk along Swanston St.
We had lunch in the Aria and breakfast the next morning in the Melba. Great selection of food on both occasions and nothing was too much trouble. Service was excellent.
