“Exquisite hotel!”
Reviewed 12 August 2011

This hotel has that exquisite luxurious feel about it, from the moment the staff open the door of the taxi and exude a very warm welcome to the hotel. The warmth and friendliness of the staff (obviously very well-trained), the attention to detail in the decorations, furnishings, toiletries, beautiful stationery in our room elevates this 5 star hotel above most other 5 star hotels. The breakfast buffet is not huge in variety like some other hotels, but the food is absolutely delicious. The taste in decorations and furnishings was just beautiful and more elegant than many other 5 star hotels we've stayed at, including Hilton, Sheraton and Marriott properties internationally.

My partner surprised me with this weekend getaway and The Langham was perfectly positioned for all things Melbourne. It is situated on Southbank, right next to the Yarra River and all its fine dining. It is also only a few blocks away from the theatre district. The staff, especially the Concierge and doorman, were all extremely courteous and went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed. We only had a basic room but it did not feel cramped and we even ordered room service after coming back very late from the theatre. We're not normally huge fans of room service food, but this was fast, delicious and (more to the point!) still very hot! I would highly recommend this hotel if you want a central point from which to explore Melbourne. We will certainly stay again.

Room Tip: Keep an eye out on the Wotif website as The Langham offers some good weekend specials.

Stayed 3 nights with a friend for a bit of retail therapy. Service was wonderful, rooms are very nicely decked out with lots of little helpful things to make your stay a great one. The bed in particular was the best hotel bed I've ever slept in. Check out their High Tea in the Aria Lounge, scrumptious!!!!!

My husband surprised me by staying here for my birthday and yes, it is a beautiful hotel but the rooms were a little dissappointing. Rather small and not really 5 starish at all. We paid nearly $500 for the night, that did include an amazing buffet breakfast, but the room was tiny amd seemed a little outdated. The Melba restaurant was yummy and I would highly recommend eating there though.

Room Tip: try to get a deal cos it is very expensive and the rooms are tiny

I stayed four days - while visiting my daughter who lives in Melbourne. She came and stayed in the hotel - her comment was she always wondered why people stayed in hotels in the city they lived in but now she can completely understand. I travelled with another friend who had her own magnificient room - and she was absolutely delighted with the Langham faultess experience. I so loved the magnificient floral arrangements in the entrance, their perfume was so welcoming every time we entered the hotel. The staff where fantastic, helpful in every way. The breakfast is superbe and the bar sevice excellent

I was lucky enough to stay here with my mother and younger sister recently and it was sensational. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are fantastic. The location is unbeatable and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. When my sister lost her handbag one of the staff members went out of her way to help find it and eventually did. We were also offered a reduced rate on breakfast, which is phenomenal. As someone who has experienced many hotel breakfasts, I can say with certainty that this is the best. Best hotel in Melbourne, strongly recommend
