“Girl's trip to the Langham”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2013

My two girlfriends and I stayed at the Langham for my hen's night.

While the hotel is beautiful and has a great reputation, I found it to be overpriced for what it was. Breakfast was not included in the price and we weren't able to check-out of our room an hour later than the designated time. The rooms are tired, the decor is out-dated and the place is in need of a good spruce-up.

On a positive note, the pool and spa area is fantastic. We stayed up there until it closed at around 9pm and would have stayed longer if we could! It's also in a great location and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Would stay there again on the condition that there's a good deal on offer!

We stayed here for 1 night, what a shame we couldn't make it longer. We had a river view room, which had everything you need and more plus a wonderful view. This hotel feels special as soon as you check in. All public areas and our room looked very fresh as if this hotel had just opened. We had breakfast with our package, which was fabulous with so much slection and very helpful staff. There is a loverly pool and jacuzzi to cool down when you return from sight seeing. Would love to stay again.

I booked the Langham Hotel because of its Trip Advisor rating as the number one hotel hotel in Melbourne, and it was wonderful. What a delightful experience from check in to departure. Friendly, professional staff, superb location, fabulous bed, luxury bathroom with the detail of the exquisite toiletries, the turndown service with a fresh bottle of water on each side of the bed every evening. We had access to the Club Lounge and enjoyed the sumptuous breakfasts, afternoon teas and pre-dinner drinks on the 24th floor with those incredible views of the Yarra River and the Melbourne skyline. Every part of our stay was perfect and we were sad to leave. I hope we will be able to return to Melbourne and the Langham soon.

Room Tip: I'd recommend the extra cost for access to the Club Lounge if you can afford it. The views are i...

After checking out a number of hotel deals on Southbank, Melbourne, we decided to book the Langham Hotel. Our package included a night's accommodation, valet parking, a glass of champagne and of course a full buffet breakfast. We were celebrating our anniversary and we put a note in the booking to that effect. Well, what a wonderful experience. It started with our checkin which went very smoothly as they had all our details at hand. The surprise was that on completing our checkin the girl who was helping us dropped everything to personally escort us to our room, a first for us. Waiting for us in our room was a beautiful bouquet of pink roses, a bottle of shiraz and delicious Pink Lady chocolates and a letter from the manager welcoming us and congratulating us on our anniversary. We settled in to our beautifully comfortable room and a little while later the door bell rang and we were delighted a delicious chocolate cake was presented with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate. We had dinner at a restaurant close by and came back to spend a very comfortable night in their lovely bed. The next morning we went down to a sumptuous breakfast which included a whole table of gluten free choices, which was fantastic. They even use a delicious soy milk for those who are lactose intolerant. On checking out we were greeted by the most friendly staff member who chatted with us while we waited in a very short line to check out. Our car was brought up from valet parking very promptly with a bottle of spring water for each of us. On our drive home we both commented that we had just experienced the best service ever in any hotel. What a great anniversary experience.

Room Tip: The room in our package was on a lower floor so if you want a view you may need to pay for an upgrad...

Staying 4 nights in January while on holiday. Selected property due to location on Yarra River and proximity to Australian Open as well as many glowing reviews. Was not disappointed. Delightful property with superior service. Room top pool on floor 9 offers wonderful views of the river. Many options for dining along Yarra River, all within walking distance. Also city tram loop within a 5 minute walk and walk to Australian Open in 20 minutes. Room included daily breakfast which was amazing. On par with other Langhams - wide array of warm and cold breakfast selections and made to order options including omelets and a chocolate fountain. Would highly recommend. Worthy of all good press from travel and leisure readers choice polls.

From the moment we entered the foyer I knew it was something special. We were only in Melbourne for one night. We were warmly greeted by reception and while our room was being finalised we were allowed us access to the spa and steam rooms. The views from the pool deck are second to none and the room we had was of great size. Again the view from the room was great and the bathroom just stunning.
Between the staff, the hotel and the location it provided us with the perfect preparation for our night out.
The next morning we had the buffet breakfast which rounded the stay out perfectly. A beautiful blend of warm and cold options, healthy choices as well as barista coffees and teas.
My fiancé is a travel agent and I've done nothing but talk her ear off about how fantastic this experience was and told her she should recommend nothing else but the Langham in Melbourne.
