Very nice helpful staff. Beautiful room and setting. Quiet despite being off the main road, but the rooms are "secluded" within an inner courtyard. Rooms were spacious and amenities nice. Location is not as convenient as we had thought but it was not a big problem but did add to our driving time.

The place was nothing like the photos that were shown upon booking. We were put in a house down the street where the the kitchen was virtually bare, garden neglected and light switches were in very unusual places (which is not very helpful in the dark) Not worth the price we paid!

Just off Nepean Highway, not far from the Highett metro station. Clean, well maintained, confortable, friendly staff. It was packed on the week-end, but it was still well maintained and quiet. A good spot if you need to be not to far from the city but most of your business is in the southeastern suburbs.

Had a great dinner at the restaurant - meal was excellent. Great food and excellent service from Wilson. For the morning, grab a coffee - Eva makes a great coffee! The room is basic but fine and a good size. The hot water shower is powerful and hot!

The Buckingham is a special place for our family. We stayed at the Buckingham when visiting family going through a difficult time. This modest hotel was an oasis of tranquility for all of us over several months. We made endless short notice requests - guests coming and going, young children, room changes, meals out of hours. The staff of this...

An excellent motel in a very good location. Walking distance to Southland Shopping Centre, Highett restaurants and on ly a short drive to the many sand belt golf courses. The accommodation is spacious and well presented. Despite being on the highway double glazing suppresses all noise.

Very good standard rooms and facilities. Excellent standard of meals and service in the Busby's Restaurant. Ample free car parking. Free WiFi. Sensible prices both in the restaurant and the accommodation. Located very near some great early morning coffee shops.

Even though the weather was miserable the Buckingham was a good place to stay. The room was a high standard, clean and a reasonable size. The bed was very comfortable and the shower excellent. The only issues are parking which is tight and getting to the location is a little tricky. While the Buckingham is about 25min from the CBD...

If you have reason to be in the South-East of Melbourne this is a good option. First of all it is conveniently located in terms of being on the Nepean Hwy. So plus points there. Also the turn off to it is located in a small additional lane separated from the main highway lanes by a cement/concrete/whatever barrier. So you...

We stayed here for two nights while my partner had a medical procedure nearby. Rooms are neat and tidy - they're also quietly tucked away from the noisy highway. Very close proximity to the Westfield shopping centre. Meals are really great quality but expensive.
