Editorial review:

The location of The Langham hotel in Melbourne cannot be beat. It is situated along the river and you will be only a few minutes away from the CBD and all it has to offer. The hotel is small, but it is elegant and beautiful with a great staff. Be sure to ask for a corner room if you want a good view for a reasonable price. Do not forget to visit the on-site spa, and definitely do not skip breakfast. The buffet is truly to die for.

                        The Hotel did not honour the bookings.com reservation, despite being presented with clear evidence of the booking. They claimed the booking has been cancelled (it was not!). They have allocated a room, an upgraded room as the one booked, they said, was unavailable. After numerous emails and discussions, including by the person who booked the hotel for me, they agreed they will sort it out, and in particular honour the price booked. It was discovered at hasty check out as taxi was waiting to go to airport, they have not indeed sort it out, demanded that full price be paid, (with lame explanation that it is because Club floor/lounge was used - but it was, because that is the room that they upgraded me to, not to mention the fact that as a minimum consolation they should have covered it!) COmpletely dishonourable, particularly for a hotel where one stays on a regular basis when visiting from abroad.

                        The building design, beautiful foyer, room, service and food were of a very high standard. I had a classically furnished, good sized Deluxe Classic room, with a very very comfortable King Size bed. I enjoyed everything about my stay at this hotel. Certainly one of the best hotels in Melbourne CBD.

                        Only a minor negative - The check in was slow, even the the queue was not very long. However, despite an early arrival, my room was made available to me

                        The hotel has a very luxury feel, not sterile and overly modern like most 5 star hotels I have stayed in. Lovely bar downstairs, well equipped gym, very polite staff and excellent location.

                        Have absolutely no complaints for The Langham Melbourne. Even when I had a discrepency on my account upon check out the staff were very obliging and fixed the problem without any hassle or complaint.

                        The hotel lobby is very attractive but is a little dated although beautifully maintained. The rooms would possibly appeal to an older person as they were more traditional than modern.

                        The hotel was very impersonal and no one spoke to us for our whole stay (5days) the meals were very expensive and we did not eat in the hotel.

                        The best hotel bed I have ever slept in! The elegant luxury and little touches that show up the differences between a good hotel and a great one!

                        -Very comfortable -Beautiful decor and design -Complimentry 'Chaun Spa' massage facilities to guests I stayed at the Langham for one night for my boyfriend's birthday. I was speechless as soon as i walked into the hotel by the sheer beauty of it. The decor is gorgeous and the staff were just as welcoming as i checked in. The girl at the desk asked what the purpose of my stay was and when i mentioned it was my boyfriend's birthday she said she would note it down and to wait for a little surprise. A few hours later we got a knock at the door and a chef had brought up a lovely little happy birthday cupcake! The bed was incredibly comfortable and all the extra little things the hotel provided made the stay very worth while. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a romantic getaway in central Melbourne!

                        We arrived at 07:00 hrs. On a Saturday morning from uk. Check-in was not till after 15:00 hrs.. The staff prepared a room for us before 09:00 hrs.. Excellent service.

                        Swimming pool was not very clean or inviting.

                        I have been coming to the Langham since when it was still the Sheraton.......and if I wouldn't like it I wouldn't have come back.

                        My friend was a bit taken aback the only my name (i did the booking and paying) appeared on the welcoming screen at the room. We did have problems with the remote and there was no manual to refer to. We had staff help and even he had his problems. We are two women in their sixties but no whizz-kids....so maybe you could cater for us oldies....we do have the money to stay with you. ;-))

                        They messed up our rooms accommodation - we were two business women attending a conference and they had us in a Kind bed - not two doubles as requested........Apparently the hotel was fully booked and no other room was available....The man on reception was very abrupt and was not willing to 'go that extra mile' to rectify the problem. In the end we stayed in the room and they had to split the beds and the following evening re-arrange the furniture etc......not ideal as we were there for 3 nights!!!
