“could not ask for anything more in a motel "Magnificent"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2010

From the time we where greeted at the door by the concierge to reception, to room service, to dining room service, to the visual effect of the fountains the location the friendly staff and the appointment of the rooms it was a fantastic journey,we where there four days and each day it was a different experience. the wedding we attended had there meal at Melba's and it was so relaxed and the food was just "delicious" no other word would describe the experience .

Thankyou

We stayed at The Langham in December and it was really a great hotel. The rooms are nice, the staff very friendly and helpful.
We were travelling with our little daughter (one year then) and it was no problems to get a baby cot.
Very helpful with restaurant recommendations. Super location and the Spa was lovely.

We had the pleasure of staying at The Langham Melbourne in June 2010 and without a doubt this was the best motel we have ever stayed at. From the service upon arrival with the conceierge, reception staff, room service & restaurant staff it was the best ever. They were all welcoming and nothing was a problem, service and comfort was a second to none. I would highly recommend The Langham Melbourne to anyone who wants a premium quality experience at a more than reasonable rate.

This hotel is simply the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Having to travel regularly for business in Australia this hotel has that something extra that lifts it above the competition. In every way I was impressed, right down to the smallest details in the room to the service ethos evident in every interaction with the staff. I will never stay in another hotel in Melbourne again! I have told my work colleagues to stay at the Langham and they have thanked me for the hint!

This hotel looks like it should be screaming 5 stars from the outside but when you get into the hotel room it could pass as a 3 star? As you enter this beautiful building your eyes are greeted by the sound of water running from water fountain over marble, the ambience is perfect and is completely what you would expect from 5 star accommodation. As you go into the room you are greeted by a tired looking room which is in need of a bit of love, wallpaper which you can see the seams and lifting edges and carpet which needs to be replaced, even in the hallways. The Rooms are small the beds aren’t king sized beds they are 2 single beds (and single mattresses) stuck together with and overlay...???? 5 star??? nope I’ve been in many 5 star hotels and this definitely isn’t.. Unless it was given the rank when it first opened.. Another thing this hotel had which annoyed me was dry air-conditioning, i understand it’s difficult to have a large building an moisture but at the same time i hate ultra dry air conditioners, feels like you’re breathing in an airplane.

On the positive side the breakfast was fantastic, the staff are very well mannered and i had THE best sleep I’ve had in ages! But for the price tag it doesn’t weight up.. There are newer places in the city that are cheaper with better rooms.

Just like to point out, im always wary of feedback from people that give 5 Stars amazing reviews with only 1 contribution, i surely cant be the only person to have seen this and if these are genuine im sure my points would of been raised earlier!

If your'e going to charge such a high rate for a small room i would suggest you increase the rate a little more and include internet for free?

Fabulous well appointed hotel. Excellent location, close to restaraunts and top end stores. Reception staff cool but professional, all other staff incredibly warm, friendly and helpful. Shop around on the internet for a good rate, they are out there and well worth the effort. The breakfast was OK but unless it is part of your package it's probably not worth it. A nice stay but I wish front end staff would treat all guests equally no matter how lowly some guests seem. You really can't judge a book by it's cover!
