“Fantastic hotel!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

As soon as you arrive at this hotel you know you are in for a treat. A lovely welcome from the front desk and even though we arrived mid-morning and expected that our room would not be available, were surprised to find that our room was ready. Just what you needed after a 22 hour flight from the UK. Great location on South Bank opposite Flinders Street station? Highly recommended if staying in Melbourne?

My friend and I chose to stay here for 5 nights for the tennis for the third time. Overall a fantastic stay! All staff were friendly and obviously enjoyed working there. However on our first night (Thursday) we wished to dine at Melba. An early meal as we wanted an early night. Rang to book but a staff member told us it was booked out and was quite abrupt when I mentioned we were staying and thought there would be some reservations for hotel guests. I also mentioned that this was the only night we could go and if I had known we would have booked dinner months ago. Eventually I asked the concierge, Sam, if there was any way we could dine there. He asked if we could dine early, which suited us as we were tired, and we were fortunate enough to secure a table. He obviously really tried to get a booking for us. Thanks! We had to eat by 7:30 which we did. Was interesting that only half of restaurant was full until we left. Yet we were not offered an early sitting or assisted at all. We would have understood if it was a weekend night when you would expect the restaurant to be full. This was the only fault with our stay here - disappointing! Yes we will stay again as it is within walking distance to city, tennis, etc. Pity I didn't get the staff member's name as she obviously needs some assistance with customer relations!

Everything we expected from the time we first booked to the fast checkout. Perhaps the pool area could do with a little attention, perhaps they should have real coffee available in the rooms, perhaps it is a little pretentious that they often have a "Roller" or a Maseratti parked outside but hey, we can't all drive them! Whether you arrive in a yellow cab or are dropped of by the chaufer you can be assured of a warm, friendly, lavish and slightly old fashione (in the best sense) hotel. Try it and don't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Even the cheaper rooms are good!

Stayed three nights in December. Great location, food and service. Convenient valet parking at a cost of $50. per night. Enjoyed being able to work out of the hotel, shop in Southgate, and walk across the bridge to enjoy all that Melbourne has to offer. However, I was inconvenienced by the hold the hotel put on my credit card even after the bill was paid. They sorted it out after a quick phone call.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the river!

bsington, Manager at The Langham, responded to this review, January 31, 2013
Thank you for your kind review. We’re delighted that the location and our Melba restaurant was the highlight of your stay. Please note that we have wonderful best value accommodation packages that include valet parking when you book directly with us. Our reservations team would be delighted to assist you with any enquiries for future visits. Due to security reasons we do hold an authorised charge for accommodation during your stay. The cardholder’s bank should release this once the bill is settled. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by the bank’s delay but I am pleased we were able to quickly resolve it. Thank you for taking the time to let us know of your experience. I do hope that we will be able to welcome you back

Having stayed in the Langham London which is perfect in every sense we wondered how this Langham would compare. Very favourably as it happens. We stayed in a Club room with all the club extras and found the service to be impeccable particularly in the club lounge. The room we were in I would describe as showing some signs of wear but on the whole was up to the standard that would be expected. Will be returning next time in Melbourne.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the river certainly have spectacular views

Spent a lovely Saturday night at The Langham in Melbourne for a special occasion with my special husband. The lobby and foyer are breathtakingly beautiful and the staff are very welcoming and helpful. The room, with a river view, was lovely and the bed, oh the bed, was the most comfortable I have ever slept in ! We also enjoyed a buffet breakfast at the hotel's restaurant and were very pleased with the quality and variety of food on offer.
In all, The Langham is a wonderful place to stay for a special occasion or just a decadent getaway. I would be more than happy to stay here again and again and again.

Room Tip: River view rooms overlook the Yarra river and the city and are lovely.

From the moment you walk in to the lobby you feel welcome. From that point it just gets better. Just everyone here is so nice, the girls in reception, the concierge desk, the room ladies, you just could not fault the staff.
The rooms are lovely and comfortable, with everything you could possibly need included.. but it is not the rooms that make this hotel so special, it is the staff.
We stayed on the Executive Floor, which was a real treat. The staff in the club lounge were simply outstanding, well dressed, all very smart in their nice uniforms, and every one of them treated their guests like they were the only guests in the hotel.
I always say you can have the very best 5 star hotel in the world... but without the staff to make you welcome and perform their duties in such a wonderful manner way above the call of duty... the management should be very proud, and must also be doing a wonderful job.
The location is great too...just a wonderful experience

Room Tip: I am quite sure all rooms are wonderful, but if you want a special treat book the Club Floor
