“What a find! This is one of the best hotels in which I have stayed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2011

I travel a lot for business and this hotel is outstanding. From the minute you approach the front door, the service is excellent. The hotel decor is luxurious and plush - a welcome change from the clinical straight lines and stainless steel of a lot of modern hotels. It is a perfect blend of old world luxury and modern style. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, with dozens of little touches that make you feel like you are staying in a grand home, rather than a hotel.
The food is fabulous - lots of variety and quality. Allow some time for breakfast as the selection is quite extensive!
We held a conference here and the catering was probably the best we have seen in a long time - our delegates were very impressed!
I am delighted that we have chosen this hotel as our regular Auckland venue for our conferences and other business events.

I ended up staying the night at the Langham due to the usual incompetencies of Aerolineas Argentinas, but thankfully I was pleasantly suprised.

Staff from the hotel were incredibly helpful, friendly, and tolerant of the flight-load of angry, confused passengers. Hotel rooms were clean, modern and other general facilities were excellent as well.

The best part of this stay was the hotel restaurant. Not your average buffet - beautifully laid out, "custom cooking" available for meats, amazing array to choose from, all delicious. Had a few drinks in the cocktail lounge nearby, service was decent but drinks were delicious.

For short stays I would certainly reccommend this hotel, it made my unexpected lay-over in Auckland a really great experience.

Stayed here on the Mastechef Package (Room, breakfast and In room dining with two mains selected from the Gourmet Menu, as was shown on the NZ Masterchef TV Show).
Everything about this hotel is superb from the lobby through to the room and some of the friendliest and most helpful staff I have seen for many a year.
In room amenities are first class and the bed was extremely comfortable.
The buffet breakfast is as good as it gets, there was no lunch needed that day!
Cocktails and nibbles in the lounge area are a great experience (but not cheap!).
My only gripe was the Gourmet hamburger that I chose for the Main Course in room dining experience. It had to be one of the driest and tasteless burgers I have ever had! You were invited to write comments on the meal (impeccably silver serviced to your room), which I did so and I really expected to hear something back from the Chef, as the Masterchef TV show made a big deal out of getting this new In Room dining experience perfect and the food to arrive perfectly to the room. This certainly did not! My wifes steak meal was excellent, so just don't choose the Burger!
We will certainly return and next time try the Club level

Room Tip: I suspect the Club Level is even better

We recently spent 2 nights in the Royal suite! Jabeez at reception was outstanding! He continued to deliver exceptional service with a smile throughout our stay. We were overwhelmed by our accommodation. It was very opulent. We felt very humble after this upgrade and our loyalty to the brand will continue. Andrew at the club lounge was excellent however we found the other club lounge staff a little cold and unfriendly, a smile and happy disposition is worth a lot! Would highly recommend a spa treatment at the Chuan Spa, breakfast at Eight and a drink in the lobby bar!

We surprised our daughter for an 18th birthday treat and we loved it. Barolo was beautiful, service excellent and food delicious. 8 is a great concept and we even managed to squeeze in an afternoon tea. Really enjoyed the location, decor and staff and would look to go back.

Staying at the Langham, I couldn't believe I had found such a high class hotel in Auckland. This hotel would not have been out of place in London or NY. The furnishings were luxurious, the staff polite and helpful and I felt thoroughly spoiled by my whole experience. I stayed in an executive suite and hence had access to the club lounge on level 10. This was fantastic, looking out over the city every night, eating sushi and enjoying NZ wines. Well worth the extra money for the suite.
