Since it is queens palace, it has a big name. Its beautiful. People can go during guard changing ceremony which is good. There is a good circle structure too for photography purpose. This place is near to Hyde Park.

We had the most wonderful stay at Buckingham Place, everything was perfect and there was nothing Nick and his team could have done better. When you enter the gates it's like entering a haven of a tranquillity and luxury and instantly you are made to feel welcome and like a guest of honour. The grounds are beautiful, right on the...

Thank you for a wonderful review! Truly, it was a real thrill to read ‘The most magical hotel’ and while many hoteliers might disagree with you today we bask in the glory!

When we read all of the great reviews about buckingham place we were a little sceptical, nowhere can be that perfect, but honestly i have to say that it is the best hotel we have ever stayed in! We were made to feel really special from the moment we arrived with a flower necklace, cold towel and welcome drink. We...

From the minute we arrived at Buckingham Place we felt special. We were greeted with a necklace of fresh flowers and a cold hand towel. We were taken on a short tour of the grounds and shown to our room immediately despite arriving early. The room was absolutely beautiful (garden suite) - a large bed sat in a vast space....

Wow and thank you! At the end of the hotels seventh winter season I remain as amazed as I was at the end of its first, by the sheer number of guests who enjoy it and respect its team and, by what I believe is no small miracle on our part - our apparent ability to sustain and fulfil promises...

We spent two nights at Buckingham Place at the end of a ten day tour of the Island, and what a wonderful way to end our holiday. We were greeted by Prasana, who provided us with all the information we needed about the hotel, and the local area. The hotel is beautiful with a lovely relaxing ambience. The bedrooms were...

We’d have been more than happy for you to stay longer - next time perhaps?? April has been a lovely month throughout, great weather, lots of great guests and more than is usual to see at the hotel, some really great kids! As the season comes to a close I reflect happily on its success, especially how well the new...

As many others have said this place is a wonderful oasis. Apart from all the other highlights the thing that impressed me most was how much has been invested in great customer service and the thought that has gone into making guests feel special from the moment they arrive. Truly memorable end to our Sri Lanka holiday!

Our host is a self confessed obsessive compulsive gentleman and we reap enormous benefit from this in that there is no detail left untouched. We LOVE this hotel (or were we staying with a friend?).

While replying, therapists of every kind queue at our gates with a cure!
