The staff were lovely but there were quite a few things that weren't of the standard you would expect considering its one of the most expensive 5 stars in Sydney. Firstly our "harbour view" was marred by the MASSIVE casino construction site directly between the harbour and the hotel. Currently it looks like a gigantic parking lot with cranes and... More

First visit to the Langham after its renovation. Arrived earlier than our reservation and shown straight to our table as the bar didn't look too inviting. Had to ask for the wine list and then asked 15 mins later for someone to take our orders including drinks. Wine arrived eventually with some bread ( no questions about any dietary requirements...

We had a great weekend at The Langham Sydney. The staff at this boutique-style hotel were extremely welcoming. The rooms are spacious and luxurious. The setting is a relatively quiet street full of attractive heritage houses. The hotel is also within short walking distance of Circular Quay - the hub of Sydney. We will definitely stay there again!

This hotel is gorgeous, the service offered very nice and overall it was just a lovely break. Bistro Remy was upmarket and a very nice fine dining experience. Our room was beyond our expectation, bed ensured a lovely sleep, bathroom divine, and if you want to feel pampered visit The Langham, Sydney

This was our first night in Australia and the hotel was lovely. They worked on the marble flooring which was not that great but a few days prior to our arrival we received notification of this. Our room was lovely we had a little balcony and the bed was especially comfortable. We had a turndown but no chocolates :-( Breakfast... More

It that such a big deal? The Langham, a multi million hotel chain refused to honour the vouchers . ( even though they have... More

We used to go to the Observatory Hotel (now the Langham Sydney) which had been our favourite for many years but then it got tired and some of the staff were not what you would expect from a quality hotel so we stopped going. The Langham Group however have tightened her corsets, put on new lipstick and makeup and she... More

We had problems initially with bookings for the day spa which were frustrating. However, apart from this the service at the hotel was excellent. My daughter has very strict dietary requirements and the staff could not have been more helpful or friendly assisting her with her food choices. I would highly recommend the High Tea and day spa experience, it... More

Our first time at the Langham Sydney and we were impressed with their impeccable customer service and attention to detail. We stayed on level 1 in a good sized room with two very comfortable queen size beds. Millers Point is like a trip back in time, surprisingly quiet, friendly and low density - perhaps that is all about to change... More
