“The Langham High Tea - Gluten Free goodness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

I went with a group of ladies to the Langham on 19 May for High Tea. As I can't have gluten, we made sure when we booked that they had some GF options. I was so amazed at what I got - my own cake stand with cakes, sandwiches and scones!!! They were all so delicious, I was in heaven! To top this off, the chef came out and took me to the buffet 'sweets' table and went over with me what I could and could not have! They did have little cards for the sweet name and if it was GF or not, but it was great to have the actual chef come and tell me personally. I will definately be back for the devine GF High Tea at the Langham!!! Oh - and the sandwiches were the best I have had made from GF bread! Actually spongy and tasted (almost) like normal fresh bread:)

Our recent short trip to Melbourne to visit family was made outstanding with our first (of many in the future) stay at the Langham. The location was perfect for walking everywhere we wanted and with the railway station close in future we will use that too instead of driving everywhere ourselves.
We cannot speak highly enough of the attention to service shown by all staff and would happily recommend this as a perfect spot to stay.

We stayed but one night at the Langham, my husband was made redundant at his job and his peers were giving him a send off, we stayed at the Langham for the night of his send off as it is a long way to go home late in the evening or as it turned out for us the night!! The room we had had a Yarra River view, lovely. The room was spacious and elegant even though we had a base rate room. The bed was enormous and comfortable. Our stay there was lovely. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone who can afford it.

Room Tip: If you can have a room with a view it is just Icing on the Cake!!

We had the pleasure of staying at the Langham for a week while undertaking training for corporate governance. The hotel has topped the list of our favs in Melbourne. We would rate it above the Sofitel and just above the Grand Hyatt, mostly for its homely but sophisticated comfort. We love the location, the staff and the architecture: grand but welcoming.

Room Tip: River view

My partner and I stayed here for New Year's Eve - and what a great location! The huge terrace area had a great view of the fire works and there was plenty of room to relax, have a drink and some snacks, when waiting for the midnight celebrations.

The bathroom was well stocked and practical/spacious and I was a big fan of the Nespresso coffee machine.

Breakfasts were an international extravaganza and the location was excellent for restaurants, bars and a good base for exploring Melbourne city and surrounding areas.

Expensive but recommended for a special treat / or if you are rich ;-)

This is a wonderful little boutique hotel with nice rooms and a good breakfast. It is also well located to the city and the MCG and local restaurants and shopping. Only disappointment is three unanswered emails regarding membership of their 1865 club.

We stayed at the Langham Melbourne for five nights. We had a mixed experience and
I am quite surprised that this hotel would be voted number one in Australia. Had it not been for the fact that we pre-paid with our travel agent, we may have moved to another hotel.
The swimming pool was closed ( of course this can happen) but which hotel does not pick up the phone when you dial front desk, room service, operator or concierge?
We have had many occasions when nobody would pick up the phone and we would have to ring later and then again, nobody would answer. The room was nice, a little on the small side, the staff were friendly. We had a corner room and although you could see the river if you sat up from the bed, the view was really not nice, seeing office towers right in front of you. It is a good hotel, but I am sure it cannot be No.1 in Australia.

Room Tip: the rooms with river view are more expensive, but otherwise you are looking at hundreds of offices r...
