If you're travelling in and around Melbourne, or just flying in before moving on elsewhere - this is a great hotel to stay at. Convenient - rail station is just on the next street, and a good shopping centre with range of stores is just up the road.

We recently spent 3 nights at this hotel. Rooms are a good size and clean. Free Wifi throughout the hotel which was a hit with the kids as was the pool! Great staff in the bar and in the reception area.

Did not use restaurant, had dinner at "Hunky Dory" @ 284 HIGHETT ROAD (round the corner, long walk or quick drive), which was undoubtedly the best fish & chips... More

I experienced great service in a very clean and well presented hotel. I stay here quite often with work and the staff are so friendly, the restaurant is classy and very reasonably priced. Great location and close to shopping centre and Melbourne's beaches.

We have stayed at the Buckingham on numerous occasions and have been very satisfied with everything on each occasion. The staff should be congratulated for a service very well done. We will be paying them another visit in the next month and no doubt we will be equally happy with the room and service.

My husband and I spent 4 nights after booking the day before New Years Eve and we couldn't believe our luck. Great location with a short drive to Brighton beach, walking distance to the metro train and Southland shopping centre. We also did very easy drives to Frankston and the Dandenongs. The room was large, modern, clean with lots of... More

This hotel is close to my family, and I use it when visiting them. The room we had this time was nicer than on previous occasions, and I was very happy with their service. The only thing we found was that the milk was not replenished each day, but other than that, a comfortable, clean room.

I have stayed here before and knew what to expect. The hotel is very comfortable and clean and the staff are very obliging. The rooms may be somewhat dated but apart from the radio everything is functional. I will certainly use this hotel again when visiting my family in Highett.

If you don't need a hotel in the middle of Melbourne city, I can recommend Best Western Buckingham. It seems to be mid-way between a motel and a big flashy hotel and it achieves what it tries to. The rooms were clean (with exquisitely comfortable beds) and the staff were very helpful to my wife and I. We will return!
