“Excellant ,value and service with a terrific location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2010

Checked in on Friday April 30th and enjoyed an amazing weekend before the business began on the Monday-Wed.
My room from the 14th floor (one on the lower floors) was spectacular giving an great view of the river and the city.
The concierge were very helpful in recommending various restaurants, obtaining tickets to an Aussie Rules Football match Friday night to renting a car the next morning with specific instruction on driving the GREAT OCEAN ROAD.
The restaurant in the hotel for breakfast was all buffet which I found expensive and frankly not to my liking.Try the "CAMERA" a restaurant in the mall overlooking the river .Great food and very reasonable.Other wise the hotel location is fantastic ; close to everything; restaurants on the river , stroll over a walking bridge to the downtown core, bars and major theater and sports complex all close by. There is a casino down the street , but I did not experience that although everyone suggested the shops were great.
I enjoyed the spa although service level here was lacking and not worth the expense.
The bar in the hotel was comfortable and the staff were eager to engage in conversation ,just a great spot to unwind.
Will stay at the Langham definitely again.......... on my next visit.!

This is the second time we have stayed at the Langham and we have fallen in love! The service, the bed, the breakfast, the facilities and location. It's such a lovely place to runaway to and really nice to be able to enjoy our home city in such luxury. We both work hard and find it hard to find time to get away. Escaping for two nights at the Langham was so relaxing and revitalising. We love it and we will treat ourselves again soon.

i recently stayed in the Langham and it was everything and more i thought it would be. The club lounge is definately worth it for that little bit of something special. The staff can't do enough for you and made us very, very welcome. Every thing about this hotel from the minute you arrive is amazing, the entrance makes you feel special straight away. The Langham is definately the best hotel i've stayed in and would recommend it to anyone wanting that bit more from a 5 star hotel.

Fantastic hotel. Lovely room. Great amenities. Excellent breakfast at Melba's.

Had a wardrobe disaster and Peter, the Concierge, employed his wonderful problem solving skills and rescued our evening. Really above and beyond.

Having travelled to and stayed at many hotels in Melbourne my husband and I decided this trip we would try out the Langham. We can honestly say that it was exquisite.
Everything from the thick fluffy towels to the extra (helpful) bathroom condiments made for a wonderful weekend getaway. The room was peaceful at night, clean and beautifully appointed. The staff all went out of their way to be polite and genuinely helpful. We had the best long black coffee in Melbourne at the Aria bar. Our reported check-out time was 11 am but on arrival we pleasantly found that it was actually a 12 noon check out, lovely for that extra Sunday morning lay in. Being seasoned travelers we are finding that fewer and fewer hotels actually live up to all the hype but we can say hands down that The Langham is the number one hotel in Melbourne.

We had a wonderful two days in Melbourne and loved everything about the Langham. The room was amazing. Because I mentioned that it was our wedding anniversary we were upgraded to a room with a river view and that night a slice of delicious gateau was left for us with Happy Anniversary written on it. A really lovely gesture we thought. Lots happening on the Southbank with easy access to transport and restaurants.
