I booked this place based on its 4 star hotel class. It probably scored just by having key things in place. But it can never compare to proper 4 star establishments. This aside. The service was overall average. Some staff were quite smiley and friendly and others were just bland. Checkin late at night was the mostly bland part. Breakfast...

We have stayed at the Buckingham several times over the years and have always found it surprisingly quiet, as we come from a rural setting. The rooms are very clean, plenty of hot water, extra blanket, everything you need. Staff are exceptional, especially when an unwell husband left his wetpack behind, complete with puffer, pills and special electric razor! This...

I stayed here for 1 night in the month of August 2015 as had some meetings in the same area. The rooms are quite good and comfortable. They have ample parking space. Their breakfast was also excellent. The staff is also friendly. I would recommend this hotel based on the location.

A great little hotel located a stones throw from everything we needed. Lovely clean rooms, comfortable bed and a long hot shower with good pressure. We will definitely be back on our next trip to melbourne.

We have stayed at this hotel 4 or 5 times- would we return? Most definitely. We arrive to a friendly greeting at reception, and are directed to a clean, up to date room with all necessary facilities.

Having stayed at this Best Western establishment many times since 2012 our latest stay consolidated our thoughts that this is a well-run professional and convenient hotel with friendly attentive and competent staff throughout. It is close to Southland shopping, Highett village and the rail line to the city, as well as the Sandbelt golf courses.
