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!

I organised a coach tour in the Melbourne Metro. Area for a group of elderly folk in November 2014 and used the RACV Accommodation Guide and the indispensable Trip Advisor to select accommodation for our 2 nights stay. Best Western seemed suitable and following a tour provided by the Front Office Manager, the very helpful Dinar, I made the booking... More

Hotel is in a great location. Is just a few km's from Monash Medical Centre Moorabbin, only about 1 km from Southland Shopping Centre. Is located on Nepean Hwy but noise is not an issue at all. Have stayed her a few times and would definitely stay here again.

For our first time in Melbourne, this was a fantastic place to stay. They normally charge a fee to check in early, but thankfully after being up for nearly 30 hours and catching the red eye from Perth, they let us in to our room early (as it was our anniversary). We stayed in in their standard room and it... More

We stayed here for 4 night when visiting friends who lived locally, easy access to public transport, local train station 5 minutes walk away taking you right into the city, shops close by. Rooms very comfortable, spacious and a very strong shower. Good breakfast and friendly, helpful staff. Room had everything we needed including a toaster.

We booked our room one month before our arrival date and specifically requested a room on the top floor, for four nights. On arrival, at about 2:30 pm, Raquel on the front desk handed us the key to a room on ground level. When we showed her our printed copy of our request, she patronizingly apologized and booked us into... More

Good afternoon Peter, Thank you for your time reviewing us recently. We were expecting your thoughts on TripAdvisor as prewarned by you during your stay. We totally agree with the fact that you had informed us that you would like to be away from highway and elevators and the very first room you were given fulfilled both the requests. When... More

Extended family came to Melbourne for a funeral in nearby Cheltenham. So glad we chose here. We took five rooms, all very comfortable with everything you could want, sensible rather than "luxury" style, with all the important things ready to hand eg easy log-on free wifi, 24 hour reception/service, blankets in wardrobe for nights too warm for the doonah, free...

I've stayed here a few times when on business trips. The staff are always friendly and the dinner and breakfast menu all one needs for a quick tasty meal when working and short on time. Comfortable bed, adequate desk space and well placed TV. My only request would be for a power point in the alcove above the fridge so... More

Outstanding - We were very lucky to have booked ourselves the Buckingham International as our choice for holding our Wedding Reception (Function). The staff members exceeded our expectations and quality service at every turn during the preparations process, and provided outstanding service throughout the evening of the event.
