Had a wonderful stay here with my partner for a weekend away. Cannot fault anything. We had a mix up with spilt champagne in our room which was dealt with quickly and efficiently. The manager personally came to our room to sort it out. We had a massage and spent time by the pool - an amazing relaxing experience. The...

Everyone at the hotel has been wonderful; from the great desk attendants to the Night Manager who brought in a plumber to correct our shower (he did offer to switch our room also). Cannot say enough nice things about the staff here. And the breakfasts are top notch too.

My husband and I stay here whenever we are in Sydney. Staff recognize return guests and we were given a lovely bottle of red wine and a fruit basket. Rooms are clean and luxurious. Located in our favorite part of the city, Millers Point, The Rocks. Thank you to Jodie(of the Langham) who handles all our bookings.

I cannot fault the friendly and helpful service from the minute the door gets opened for you through to the helpful check in staff. The rooms were exquisite with every little luxury thought of. The facilities especially the pool and day spa were beautiful. If I had one small complaint it was that the breakfast was no better or worse...

The staff was excellent. Our room was ready for a slightly early check-in, our bags were brought up straightaway and the front desk and concierge staff were always friendly and helpful. Our room was 104, just two rooms off the elevator and the lobby, which was open up to the first floor. My expectation was it was going to be...

This hotel is amazing. Had a Harbour view room for two nights in February 2017. 2nd floor room looking out over Darling Harbour, White Bay with a balcony. The room itself was incredible with a huge bed and massive bathroom. Staff were friendly and amenities were great! Would stay again.
