“Southbank”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

It had been almost two years since I last stayed at the Langham so was pleasantly surprised to find that they still had my Langham membership details and preferences all ready when I arrived. I had a room at the end of the passage but which meant it had great views on two sides of the river and overlooked Flinders Station and downtown.

In actuality I found the walk from the hotel to Collins Street where most of the offices are was much shorter than I anticipated and the immediate adjacency to the South bank restaurants makes for almost a dozen 'in-house' restaurants.

Will definitely stick to the Langham in Melbourne

Room Tip: definitely a room with a view overlooking the river

As soon as we pulled up to the front door, we were treated like Kings and Queens. The Staff were professional, friendly, attended to ever need, went out of their way to ensure we had the best time. The food... where do I start, the best I think I have ever had. The room was stunning, loved the personal greeting on the TV as we walked in, everything was crisp, clean, and the view looking over the Yarra River was divine. Wait until you try the king sized beds!! cannot wait to stay there again.

I like to give balanced fair reviews so I was trying to think of something constructive to write, perhaps an improvement that they could make but there isn't one. Our stay at the Langham was without fault. We arrived very early and they had a room ready for us. The staff were friendly helpful and spent time helping us even if it was late and even if they were busy. And they had a sense of humour. The rooms were immaculate, the beds comfy and spacious, the bathrooms modern. Breakfast was wonderful complete with chocolate fountain and even on a busy Fathers Day it all flowed (no pun intended) and was managed with poise. The Spa was a fabulous experience and highly recommended and sitting in the hot tub on the 9th floor admiring the view was a very nice way to pass some time. I loved the location. In the past we have stayed at The Blackman which we loved but this location is unbeatable. We were there to see the Monet Exhibition which was about 400m away if that. The famous laneways are just across the river and if the Casino is what you're after, it's just a 10 minute walk along the riverfront. I have already booked to return.

just had 1 night stay on footy finals weekend and the Langham was its usual 5 stars all the way. From the time we arrived we were welcomed by friendly check in staff and when we left we were farewelled with a smile. service is first class and for a 5 star hotel the value is excellent. Highly recommend this hotel

Comfy beds and great pillows

We stayed 3 nights in 2012- just a bit late doing the review!!

Room great. Comfy, clean, and with a great view of Melbourne city and the Yarra river.
Friendly staff.
Easy to get to anywhere in the city -especially the rail station.

Lots of food venues attached at the Southbank complex. We ate at a restaurant within the complex.
Close to a convenience store.

Room Tip: Overlooking the river

Can't say enough about how special this hotel is - we are so fortunate to have picked it! The views of the Yarra river, the room space, the luxurious bedding - sheer elegance! Breakfast buffet terrific, dinner at the Melba,while pricey, is superb. Every person we came in contact with was helpful, particularly the Concierge who turned us on to the free hop-on-hop-off bus shuttle versus the one for money, and where Geoffrey Rush has been known to have a meal or two (The Deck). Southbank has tons to offer and Museums are right around the corner. Husband's business luckily located right next door. Running out of superlatives. Just one question - when can we come back to the Langham?

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room
