“Last minute decision!”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

After enjoying a first class dining experience at one of the top restaurants on the waterfront, we didn't want our anniversary evening to end so we jumped online to find a good deal for the night. Due to it being Valentine's Day, the Langham was the cheapest rate available at over $450 for a classic room and breakfast.
Our high expectations were met by the friendly and professional staff, the foyer and surrounding areas are gorgeous however our room was a bit dated and had a hint of smokiness from years before. The standard of bedding, toiletries and furnishings were excellent otherwise. Buffet breakfast the following morning was great with never ending choices and included coffee. Overall an enjoyable experience.

Room Tip: Upgrade from a classic room if you can

This is a lovely luxury hotel and I enjoyed every moment I spent there. I had come from a few days on Waiheke Is with family and had just one night before I flew out to Australia the next day. The room was just what one expects from a 5 star hotel. Excellent linen, superb bathroom products, quiet and comfortable. I spent 2 afternoons at the rooftop pool, the second afternoon after I had checked out, but wasn't leaving for the airport until later. I was able to use their health club to shower and change before departing. A casual dinner in their coffee shop/bar was great. Excellent service. Only improvement I'd make, is to have more umbrellas around the pool. It was quite busy and everybody was vying for shade.

We purchased a special that was emailed to us which gave us an choice of rooms with Club Lounge Privileges. We stayed in an executive room which was spacious. The Langham has all the lovely touches, fabulous comfortable beds and pillows. Turn down service. You do feel special when you stay at there hotels. Club Lounge was a little crazy around 5.30-6.30 but then they filter out :-) The staff in the Club Lounge were mostly calm when it got chaotic. We love the Langham and it would be our Hotel of choice budget allowing. One tiny gripe....I had to chase up Housekeeping for plunger coffee, sugar & milk. Spa facilities are great also.

Wonderful 3 night stay at the Langham in Auckland. Friendly, polite and professional staff with great customer service skills. Loved the healthy choices for in room dining. Great location for catching up with friends and family in the city and nearby Ponsonby.

We were very much looking forward to staying in another Langham hotel. Our pick up from the airport was great and when we arrived at the hotel we were whisked away to our 2 park suites to be checked in very quickly. The suites are furnished ok but are very dark with minimal lighting. The bathroom is terrible - tiny and full of scratches and dents. The shower is over the bath and is absolutely tiny! Worst of all, the shower has a shower curtain and there is significant mould between the bath and the tiles above it – doesn’t exactly scream 5 star suite.

The Club room provides a good food and beverage service (although the hot food was frequently cold). There are some wonderful club staff although over the Easter weekend it became rather busy and the (minimal) staff seemed flustered and unable to keep up.

The free shuttle service the hotel provides is good but get in quick as it fills up fast. The driver over the Easter weekend (Geoff) was absolutely wonderful, he went above and beyond to help us get where we wanted to go.

We were horrified to come back to our room one day to find all the windows left wide open by housekeeping. This was a problem as our windows opened out onto the flat roof of one of the function rooms on the ground floor and could have been accessed by someone. We complained to both housekeeping and club management and we got a few apologies but no real explanation as to why housekeeping did that other that someone else serviced our room that day. We were told that the hotel has security and it wasn't a problem but frankly there were a number of cigarette butts on the roof which tells me people do access the roof and our concerns are justified (or people are flicking butts out their windows in a non-smoking hotel!). Housekeeping was also extremely flaky. The rooms were always cleaned well but things were only replaced sometimes. We had to call housekeeping up most days to ask for things to be replaced and as for the mouthwash that comes with the suites, most housekeeping staff didn’t even know it existed.

We were also left highly unimpressed on the last day of our stay when we left our rooms to check out. The stench of cigarette smoke in the hallway on level 3 was absolutely disgusting. When we checked out, we told the staff member at reception of our concerns and she couldn’t have cared less. Obviously smoking is acceptable at this non-smoking hotel.
The service at this hotel is patchy at best and far from 5 star. This hotel does not represent the wonderful Langham brand we have experienced at other hotels. It is unlikely we will ever return.

Hotel was nice, and has very traditional, dark decor. Great breakfast, great in room amenities.

Location is on outskirts of Auckland CBD, and it takes approx 15 mins to walk into the centre of town. The hotel is close to the K Road, so lots of restaurant options near by.

If you prefer a contemporary hotel then the Langham isn't for you!

We booked into a club room. We arrived about 3:30 and although advised we would be there at 2pm room was not ready. We were given access to the club room area but it was obvious that many rooms were not ready as there were a lot of people waiting there. The person running the club room was obviously flustered with the extra people. We did not get to our room until 5 pm which was a bit annoying. We then showered and went back to the club rooms for happy hour to find it so full there were no tables or seats. On asking we were told it was full but we could go down to the main bar in the foyer and get similar. We grabbed a couple of free nibbles and went back to our room without getting the benefits of paying extra for the privilege of the club rooms.
After going out we tried to watch a pay per view movie which stopped 3/4 of the way thru. We rang and they tried to fix it but the last call was after midnight so we gave up and went to sleep. The rest of our stay was better, we are at the restaurant which was great, the rooms were nice although showing a couple of signs of needing a refit.
A very nice place but a little disappointing this time.
