“Nice cosy hotel”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

If you are looking for hotel with classic English fit-out then this is a great hotel to visit. Rooms are spacious and clean. Location is fine but is 20 minutes walk from Myer/Westfield shopping centre.

Stayed February 2014, travelled on business

Stayed here for one night as part of a 'mystery hotel' package. Exuding an old world charm - I was particularly impressed by the Nolan paintings in the main lobby.The place is amazing and perceptive - concierge gave me a bottle of water and lent me an umbrella when I went for a stroll. My only complaint would probably be that the pink theme overtones are a bit over the top. But other than that the staff were super courteous, availing an early check- in for myself and a late check out the next day. I needed the late checkout as I wanted to try their famed spa facilities and could only get an appointment at 9 the next day. The spa was magic - highly recommended. Would definitely return in a heartbeat.

Our reservation was booked through a third party website for a one night stay. The room was spacious, clean, and well decorated. Something worth mentioning was the bathroom - simply amazing. Service was very professional and top notch.For a one night stay we could not fault the hotel. We look forward to rebooking in the future :)

The entire experience at the Langham is just nice, nice, nice! There is almost nothing to fault. Location, rooms, bedding, service, lots of little touches, all excellent. I had the privilege on a harbour facing room with a small balcony. The door staff are exceptionally helpful and it is nice and close to one of my favourite pubs, the Lord Nelson. I can also recommend the breakfast here. Whilst the decor isn't everyone's cup of tea, the overall hotel experience is exceptional. BTW, make sure you take advantage of the pool. Quite unique.

From our arrival to the time with a friendly gentleman ready to take our bags, park our car and get the door for us and when we checked out we couldn't fault anything.
We requested an early check in which unfortunately this wasn't available, however they let us use the spa facility to shower and get ready for the show we were going to, we left our bags with the concierge and when we got back at 11pm the bags were in our room and their service was lovely.
We loved all the nick-knacks in the room, the stationary, the furnishings, the very comfortable bedding and the toiletries were a beautiful product to use.
The buffet breakfast in the restaurant was fantastic and the staff were so friendly and accommodating.

We booked this as a secret deal on what-if and it was defiantly the best secret deal surprise ever! :)
Thank you for a fantastic stay, would defiantly recommend to others. See you next time.

Room Tip: We had a lovely harbour view - beautiful!

I have stayed in many a hotel in Sydney and the Langham is defiantly the best, excellent friendly service, large rooms with balconies, great breakfast and room service and all of the extras you would except in a 5 star hotel. Top of its class. You have to check out the pool it is amazing!

Previously the Observatory, but now even better as the Langham. The Langham website often has great deals & packages and even though we booked a room at a bargain rate , we were still given an upgrade when I requested a top floor room. We like both the city and the waterside rooms. The city rooms are cooler & leafy outlook, the water are hotter and very bright ( good in winter). Rooms are large and full of antique furniture & floral furnishings. Hotel exudes a country club ambience. Staff are very attentive & professional. Dining in the lounge is delightful. Beautiful setting with excellent food and service. I prefer in room dining for breakfast & meals come hot and well presented. The location is on the border of the rocks & the CBD, but only 10 minutes walk to the shopping precinct. Cabs are readily available.

Room Tip: All rooms are large & high standard of furnishing.
