Sometimes you happen across a hotel on Tripadvisor that seems to have an implausibly high rating average. Buckingham Place's near-perfect score from hundreds of reviewers is one of those - however after staying there for one night with my wife and two young boys, I can happily say the reviewers got it right. This is a boutique hotel as they're... More

I am so glad I stayed at Buckingham Place. The hospitality and location are faultless. The staff are incredible. As a previous reviewer said the attention to detail is remarkable. I only stayed two nights. I look forward to going back in the future and staying longer.

We return refreshed after an amazing holiday experience at Buckingham Place, from the attentive staff, attention to detail and the beautiful surroundings made our stay unforgettable. Right from the welcoming drink, pool service, breakfast and dinner through to celebrating our sons 21st Birthday we were made to feel at ease and truly special, thanks to Nick and his brilliant team....

I am a Sri Lankan living abroad,and wanted to experience the great reviews which I had heard and read about Buckingham Place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at buckingham. The communication prior to arrival was very efficient and helpful and our transfers were a good price from hambantota airport (approx £36) for 90 min journey and the car nice with air conditioning and seat belts. The transfer driver was there to collect us with a sign upon arrival. All was seamless and... More

This highly detailed account of your stay - from prior to your arrival even, is one of the most thorough appraisals of the hotel I have read. Thank you for a magnificent effort; on everybody’s behalf... More

We have just returned from an amazing 3 nights staying in Buckingham Place. I'm not quite sure where to start …. The grounds are beautiful, with a vast array of wildlife - including a Land Monitor, kingfisher, Mouse Deer, Langur Monkeys, plus various species of birds. The gardens are stunning and are immaculate - in a natural way. The rooms... More

when we turned up to this gem of a hotel, secluded in Sri Lanka's beautiful countryside, we could not believe our luck. we were the only guests staying whilst we were there. many people put of during the monsoon season allowed us to have exclusive reign of the whole place. And what a place it is. truly stunning. The grounds... More

...and we could not want for a nicer review..! Thank you for being so kind to us and for not being put off by Sri Lanka’s ‘monsoon’ season. As you and many off-season travellers find each year, one need not worry unduly about rain or even pack in preparedness for it. Commonly as you found, most visitors experience glorious sunshine...

The bottom line is that if this place is in your budget or even just slightly above it, than go for it as it is worth every penny! As soon as we arrived , we were welcomed with a cold drink and a wet towel and the staff knew us by name before we even said it… which was a... More

I can't rave enough about Buckingham Place. I wish I could of stayed here for weeks. Amazing location, incredibly peaceful wonderful attentive staff and great rooms available. There is also the added bonus of having the turtle conservation centre just around the corner. My only recommendation would be slightly more signage as we had a slight problem finding it. A... More

My husband and I spent 12 nights at Buckingham Place, so I guess we stayed a little longer than a lot of the guests here. We were looking for the perfect getaway.
