“Disappointed... It is all I can say!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2011

Ive stayed at alot of the Langham hotels and this was rated really high and we were so excited to try The Langham Melbourne but we think it lacks the feel of other Langham hotels. Everything here is expensive but you don't usually mind paying when the food and service are of high quality. I think there are alot of other nice hotels that you could get better value for money and a enjoyable stay in this area!

We had a beautiful weekend with great service. The decor was elegant and romantic> The location was excellent as it is central on Southbank. I would say it is expensive for even a 5 star hotel. The Aria Bar was extremely busy both nights and afternoons on the weekend, so it you want to have a drink or high tea I suggest get there early.

Service was A1 with friendly & very helpful staff. Valet parking took care of the car. A pleasant walk to the city for shopping or shows. Didn't get the chance to try a meal there but the restaurant looked great & was full. Our spa suite was of the highest standard with views of the river and a bed to die for. We also loved the great coffee & chocolates.

My husband & I had three nights for my Birthday at this beautiful Hotel. We had lovely views of the river and city. We loved you could walk to the Casino, Restaurants and shops. A great location. We found the staff to be very helpful from the moment we arrived to the day we departed. We will defiantly stay at The Langham next time we visit Melbourne.

Stayed for 2 nights as a weekend getaway.Loved every minute, from the ready valet parking ,speedy check in, breathtaking entrance and amazing staircase and water features to great room and superb buffet in Melba restaurant. Also enjoyed pool and spa.Very warm feeling throughout.Husband commented that it was the best bed he has ever slept in,and we have travelled locally and overseas.Appreciated having slippers laid out and bed turned down. Thank you.

This is a lovely hotel, situated on Southbank - so it's close to restaurants and within walking distance of the CBD. I've stayed here many times before, and it still remains a favorite. The hotel fragrance is the first thing that you notice as you enter the beautiful marbled entrance, complete with fountains, chandeliers. I love the fragrance so much, I now use it in our home. They have been doing a refurbishment of rooms, and although I arrived very early, they made me warmly welcome and ensured that I had beautiful newly decked out room at 9.30am. The level of service at this hotel from the staff is extremely good - they are charming, friendly and efficient. I had checked the Wotif rate, but noticed that it was a 2 night minimum, so rang the hotel direct and managed to get the same rate for a single night. Always worth trying with any of the major chains. Will continue to stay here when down in Melbourne. Guess that says it all.
