I was a long stay gust at this Hotel/Motel. It is conveniently located, staff are friendly especially the Indian Manager at the Front Desk. I had a Serviced Apartment which was very convenient as I could prepare simple meals and stock lots of stuff in the proper Refrigerator. Good selection of T.V channels and close to a huge Mall with... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights at the Best Western Plus Buckingham International whilst visiting our daughter and son in law in Melbourne. We had a fantastic stay and two great evening meals in the hotel restaurant. First and foremost the hotel staff are exceptional in every way. There were a number of trainees on duty and they...

I stayed here with my husband for 3 nights and was pleased with the experience at this hotel. We arrived very late on the first night and checked out very early on the final day but the night reception staff was available on both occasions. There was a good selection for breakfast - fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal, juices, various teas,... More

Super room, super Staff and no request was too much trouble. Based 7 mins walk from Highett train station with a cool shopping centre around the corner and a massive Westfield down the street (10 mins walk). You need to consider this for your next stay in Melbourne; I have already referred close Friends there for future trips to MEL.

Ideal pace to stop off, if visiting this side of Melbourne, easy access to the Dandanong region and the beaches in this area. We were visiting family so was spot on for us. Nice hotel with good amenities and well priced. Local restaurants and cafe bars in walking distance and a large shopping mall. A small bar area for drinks... More

Excellent motel that has been upgraded. Stayed on numerous occasions. Exec. rooms are clean and well serviced. Staff are excellent. Free parking is a big bonus. Breakfast is very good without going over the top. Highly recommend it for that short stay of three or four days.

I stayed here the night before the Challenge Melbourne Event, the room was amazing. Great Bed. Easy Check in, and easy check out. Parking was fine. My room over looked a busy road, however I didn't hear a thing.

We stayed here about a month ago, in the 3 bedroom apartment. We live locally but were having some work done on the house, so needed somewhere for 4 adults (parents and two offspring) to stay temporarily. This suited us well. It was modern and clean and quite attractive. Located in a quiet street we managed to park 2 vehicles... More
