Buckingham Place is a type of hotel we never knew existed. It combines enthusiastic service, delicious food and a mix of a thousand other touches and ideas that make it a delight to stay at - while avoiding the heavy handed approach of so many other luxury hotels. Throughout your stay, you increasingly feel that you are staying at perhaps... More

We are a family of four two adults and two children staying for five nights. It was an enormous room with space plenty of space for the double bed and two extra beds for the kids. The room had a lovely outdoor shower with a resident tree frog and an enormous sunken bath. The room felt very clean and a... More

Thank you very much for choosing Buckingham Place then recommending it to all. I’m delighted to see our service team ‘coming up trumps’ again, especially knowing how much they put in and how genuinely dedicated they are to caring for every guest. Also, it’s really nice to see ‘little touches’ are noticed and appreciated, and that our kitchen crew managed... More

By far the best holiday resort I have ever stayed in, and I have travelled all over the world! Nick was a fabulous host, laid back and made us feel right at home. All of his 50 staff were very friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had the experience of a lifetime. Free upgrade to the... More

Humbled. Surely no hotel team could wish for nicer or more supportive guests than those who come to stay at Buckingham Place. We’re humbled, just by the title of your review, I really wonder what else I can reply with other than, thank you - you’ve certainly bowled me over and I hope we do meet again. To be told,... More

Wow! Thank you, your review is quite fabulous! I’m thrilled to read it as I’m sure the Team will be too. Not everyone reads English here but some do. Following alerts to a new review, during a quiet moment, they can be found huddled around a device, trying to decipher it. As far as I know less than a handful... More

Boutique luxury hotel is one way to describe what Nick Buckingham has created just outside of Tangalle. However this really doesn’t do the establishment any justice. The sense of place, character and personality embedded in Buckingham Place alone sets it apart from anywhere else we stayed. Simply put, our stay in Buckingham Place was so delightful and relaxing that we... More

You’ll be hearing from us! Since 2010, my home and this workplace for all 55 of us, has been blessed with just enough visitors to sustain it and for it to evolve slowly but surely. But that’s only half the story. Whilst an incredibly eclectic mix; virtually all of our guests are engaging, kind, appreciative and exactly as you were,... More

We stayed here for 9 days and simply loved it. The staff is very friendly and polite, the owner can tell you very interesting stories about the building process of this place and happily likes animals as much as we do. The hotel with it's 15 rooms is in a perfect condition, which probably is a lot of work in... More

“Sweet and gentle guests” Spontaneously, as guests move on, somebody or other tends to comment on them – we’re human too! The first comment, a compliment I hasten to add, I heard as the gates closed behind you. I’ve written it above and say unequivocally, all others were as complimentary. You were a joy (and perfectly easy - thanks) to... More

Whilst travelling through Sri Lanka on our honeymoon we decided that we would grant ourselves one segment of lavish luxury (by our standards at least!). We chose Tangalle as the place where we would set up a temporary home for 5 nights in as good a hotel as we could afford considering we had another 17 nights of accommodation and... More

Perfect guests… I frequently count our blessings and boast our guest list couldn’t be bettered – certainly not by anywhere I’ve ever stayed. With no wish to offend a soul, I don’t mean we attract only well heeled or ‘A list’ celeb guests because generally we don’t and, they aren’t! But typically our guests are fun, sociable and engage with... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in July. Everything was excellent. The host Nick Buckingham is a template for how hotels should be run. His staff were very helpful - even sorting a problem with our hire car. The bungalow rooms are generous and very comfortable. The hotel is a little hard to find if you are driving yourself so...
