I give presentations up to 60 people here. The set up is great and always works and there is always someone there for technical help. Downstairs is a restaurant and bar. I also stay here for convenience. Some of the rooms are a little older but very comfortable and clean. Staff is very helpful. Buffet breakfast starts early and is... More

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.

I have stayed for business, with friends and family. Awesome place and kind service. Great restaurant for dinner or breakfast or down the road to Doms restaurant for large families. Close to Southlands and DFO. Nice and quiet area. Great 3 Bedroom to accommodate families

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. We can park the car just outside the door, or just a few steps away, making it easy to unpack. The hotel is... More

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.

I love returning to The Buckingham in Highett. The staff are always helpful and friendly and the rooms have a wonderful quality feel. Great location close to shops, train station, anything you could want really. The onsite restaurant has great food and wonderful service too.

This was the first hotel that we stayed in on our Australian trip. We did not want to be in downtown Melbourne, as we thought this area would be better for driving to some of the places we wanted to go to. This turned out to be a very good choice. The hotel appears older and looks quite British. The... More

If you need somewhere to stay on the outskirts of Melbourne, this hotel has a great location. The train station is just down the street, and there is a shopping centre a short stroll away. The rooms are well appointed and wifi is available.
