Melbourne - Langham Hotel

We're in Melbourne for our friend Louise's wedding.
We're staying at the Langham Hotel famed for its discreet service and luxurious rooms. I've scored a discounted media room rate so I can share my experiences with Saucy readers.

The Langham is smack bang in the middle of Melbourne's vibrant arts and dining precinct on the Southbank Promenade on the Yarra River.

It has a 5 star rating with room rates starting at around $295.

We're staying in a spacious Club River Room King which comes with complimentary internet and access to the Langham Club on Level 24.

Our room has views stretching over the Yarra, Federation Square and the city centre

The king bed has very comfortable pillows (I've been known to travel overseas with my own pillow so a good one is essential! ) The featherey quilt is soft and enveloping.

Hotel carpets are usually non descript and not worth commenting about but I love this fun, organic, feminine print.

The bathrooms are a real winner - sold marble, spacious with a deep bath, large shower and wide vanity counter.
There's also an impressive spa complex in the hotel on Level 9 - the Chuan Spa - if you need additional pampering.

The Langham takes its dining venues seriously - there's the fine dining Melba Restaurant, and the ARIA bar and lounge which serves light meals including the signature afternoon tea or Langham Tiffin.

For club members the Langham Hotel Club offers complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea and pre-dinner drinks and hors d'oeuvres.

 Breakfasts trully cater for everyone..... fresh fruit, yoghurts and cereals...

cold meats and cheeses....

honey straight from the comb...

and of course a hot selection including roast tomatoes and mushrooms.

smokey bacon rashers and pork chipolatas

... it hits the spot

So if you want a little luxury during a weekend getaway, the Langham is certainly an ideal base to explore Melbourne from.
