This is one of the nicest hotels I have every seen. It was lavishly decorated, the staff was outstanding and beds were soooo comfortable.

The service at The Langham was impeccable. You would only have to speak to any of the staff once about your day or where you were going and the next time they saw you they would remember and ask how it was - it is these ‘little’ gestures that make your stay fantastic! The concierge and door men were absolutely marvellous and were only too eager to help! The room was quaint but up-to-date with technology. It was always clean and tidy and the turn-down service was amazing. The Aria bar and Melba restaurant were lively and the food was lovely. The Langham was in the perfect location – walking distance to the city and wonderful cafes and restaurants. The service at The Langham is second to none and is what sets them above the rest!

From Peter at the door to David and Suzanne in the Club this was a great experience. The staff, service, the room, the food were superb and the ambience of the hotel matches the Royal Hawaiian.

I had heard wonderful things about this hotel but I have to say I was disappointed. Although the staff were really wonderful i found the quality of the hotel and the difference between what I saw on the web to be completely different.

My room had a continuous humming noise, the tv was fuzzy and did not access digital, the shower had shocking lighting so shaving was quite difficult.

For the money I paid the Hilton near DFO was so much better last year.

I don't think I will be coming back to this hotel.

Thank you for your feedback following your recent stay. I am sorry that you were disappointed with your experience. All the photos of bedrooms on our website are rooms as you will find them. I can advise that lighting in the bathroom has been increased in our new deluxe rooms. 42inch flat screen TVs are in all our rooms with an extensive list of TV channels. Additionally we are installing new digital wiring which will enable free to air digiital channels in all rooms.
I am sorry that a hum was apparent in your bedroom. We would always investigate any discomfort to our guests if brought to our attention so action can be taken.
Thank you for your feedback. I am delighted that you enjoyed the service from our staff and would encourage you to try us again. Please let me know when you are considering coming again.
Best wishes
Ben Sington

A great place to come 'home' to after exploring all day. Fantastic service - friendly, welcoming, polite yet unobtrusive. Although 'old style', the service from all staff in this hotel made it an exceptional stay. Apart from this, the location of the hotel is superb - very central on Southbank - close to a wide variety of places to eat, a walk across the Yarra to the city and walking distance to Melbourne Park and the MCG. Highly recommended.

Just spent a week at the Langham in Melbourne. This hotel is just awesome and I fully recommend it. The location is just superb, just on the Yarra River and a few minutes away from Federation Square and Flinders Street Station. The breakfast was also excellent with plenty of choices. The staff were also very attentive, and quick with any requests we had. We took a River Corner room with spectacular views of the river and the city...the couple of extra dollars we spent for this corner room were very worthwhile.
