I booked this hotel on Booking.com believing it was in Brighton and near the beach. Imagine my horror and disgust to discover I'm in a crappy motor inn on a busy highway in the middle of industrial nowhere land and not a grain of sand to be seen - Shame on the Buckingham and the booking agents for their fraudulent...

Nice hotel, lovely staff. Nice clean grounds with good parking. Staying here for work and only disappointment is the size of the rooms which are quite small especially if staying for a few days or more. Other than that everything else is above standard.

Booked for an evening of light entertainment for New Years Eve, was not disappointed, the setting was well organized and had a very festive appeal it set the mood for a lovely evening. The meal, a set menu, was fine, well cooked, tasty and nicely presented, nothing outstanding but then we knew what was on the menu when we booked,... More

The room was clean and well appointed. The ensuite was also clean and well appointed with plenty of hot water. The only negative was the airconditioner was directed onto the bed and could not be redirected. Maureen60

This newish motel just south of Morabbin on the Nepean Hwy is a wonderful and affordable location if you have to find accommodation on the way to Frankston.. Units are comfortable with good beds, all the usual amenities and toaster included. Units are very quiet from road noise. Car access is fiddly as it is on a service road so... More

Everything about this establishment is 'value for money'. Great beds, well equipped room, excellent shower, big tv, good security, easy parking, cheap laundry, excellent service, very close to lots of shopping options and my favourite 'Busbys' their in house French restaurant. Value for money is important to me and this one is right up there if you like a few... More

Great hotel in the southeast of Melbourne, I stay here every year to watch the Australian Masters Golf which rotates around the famous Melbourne Sandbelt courses. Hotel is very clean, plenty of car parking and a restaurant if you wish to eat in. The showers have good consistent water pressure which is a must for me. It's very close to... More

The Buckingham is a friendly hotel, rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The air conditioner provided good temperature control. Accommodation rates offer good value. It is well located for visiting this area of Melbourne. I recommend booking an executive room . If you are being picked up by friends or family during your visit a room at the... More

This hotel had friendly staff, the room was clean, the shower good and the bed comfortable. I didn't see any electric blankets so if I was staying on a cold night I would have preferred one. There was a spare blanket in the cupboard which I used. I also used the iron which was not very good. I was happy... More

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... More
