We chose the Buckingham because of it closeness to our meeting venue at the Kingston City Hall. Rooms were spotless, well appointed and beds comfortable. Nice hot water and plenty of shower pressure. I did notice that they have done a conversion to LED lighting as a power saving measure, lighting in rooms was great, better than many places I...

The hotel is near Westfield and also easy walk to shops Room extremely comfortable and overall great stay and excellent value. Only negative was had not been vacuumed as there was a cable tie makeup brush and other obvious areas on the floor. But was very clean apart from this. Definately would stay again.

On a one-night visit to Melbourne, this was a handy location on Nepean Highway and close to Southland Shopping Centre. We had a basic queen room upstairs near the middle of the property, so we were away from the traffic. This property is really for business people and is not a holiday resort in the least. The price was right,...
