“Luxurious experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely nothing to fault here. A truly magnificent hotel that pays attention to the finest details to ensure a luxurious experience. Friendly staff who have clearly been properly trained (unlike what one finds at other hotels nowadays).

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

We stayed at the Langham based on reviews but were disappointed overall. The staff is great, extremely helpful and professional but the rooms, lobby.. were okay. I'd rate it a 4 star hotel that needs updating. We stayed two nights and then moved to the Intercontinental, which was much nicer and newer. The Langham location was better, right on the river but the Intercontinental was simply higher caliber in finish and feel... and the staff was just as good. Stay for the location but don't expect wow...

Dear Guest
Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you found that the Langham's staff were extremely helpful and professional. It is what we aim to be. I would like to advise you that all of our rooms have been updated in Langham's classic elegant and luxurious style. It is our intention that they are timeless with yesterday's charm but today's amenities. It is what differentiates ourselves from most other hotels. Couple this with our excellent service and location we feel that it is a compelling combination. Thank you for staying with us.
With best wishes

Great location, service & rooms.
Good value, beautiful Yarra river bend & city skyline views. Excellent for strolls on a balmy summer evening, with plenty of restaurants & bars to choose from. Also very convenient if your in town for the Australian Open in January.

The Langham is a wonderful hotel in the style of Dorchester - from the time we stepped from the taxi to the limo that returned us to Tullamarine we felt pampered and spoiled.
Ony a couple of letdowns - foremost being the lack of fine dining - we expected something more than the Melba has to offer - at least an area away from the "hordes" at the buffet. A separate review will focus on the Melba.
Second - it was a nice touch to have an AV system in the room, but it was not very user friendly - even tech support did not appear to know how to connect and external source (iPod/iPad) and given the clientele that the Langham attracts ABC Classic FM should be on the list of radio stations playing through the AV system

Thank you for your review. I am delighted that you felt pampered and spoiled whilst staying with us. Our restaurant Melba is very popular with hotel and local residents alike. Melba offers dynamic cooking stations and a delectable culinary selection, with special appearances from the Tandoori Oven, Turbo Woks, Rotisserie, the Seafood Altar, and Floating Desserts. Its panoramic backdrop is complimented by the Melbourne skyline. Melba also has a full a la carte menu. With our location over the Southgate complex there are also many fine dining options to choose from in the vicinity.
Thank you for your feedback regarding the AV system which we will investigate. It is correct that ABC Classic FM is not available on the list of radio stations playing through the AV system due to compatability issues. However we are investigating its inclusion.
Thank you for staying with us and I look forward to welcoming you back.
Best wishes

instead, I attended a 3-day conferece. This hotel has taken care of every detail. From the coffee service, to the shop, to the kind attention of the staff. Not mentioning the public areas.

Unfonrtunately I cannot speak about the rooms.

My husband took me for a weekend away and chose this hotel WOW this was amazing from the moment our taxi arrived we were greeted by a porter who seemed genuinely seemed happy we had arrived. The entrance was so luxurious and very welcoming it set the mood for our stay for 2 nights. Checking was swift and welcoming. We had a river view room and the city. Every small detail in this hotel has been thought of done to their own complimentary bottled water by you bed. The turn down service at night provided our Langham slippers placed on a white mat on each side if the bed. The toiletries supplied were fantastic including a hair dryer that was not attached to the wall. This hotel made you feel at home in the utmost luxury. All the staff were friendly and helpful i would definitely recommend this hotel to those that want a wonderful experience and be close to all that is happening in Melbourne We are looking forward to out next stay at this hotel

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the river

Had a great stay with friends. Spoiled a little at the end when well discovered all three rooms were charged for vallet parking when none off us had cars. Otherwise great stay, just check your bill before you leave.
