This motel has all the essentials. The rooms are a little outdated, but are clean and functional. There is a small gym, good restaurant, and small bar on site. The staff are very friendly, professional and helpful. Plenty of car parking. Recommend this place to stay if you're staying short term, passing through or have business in the area. I...

Needed to stay locally so served its purpose. Staff very friendly and helpful but rooms could be cleaner, lots of dust on plugs etc which ruined the overall experience. Restaurant not cheap but served very good food. Pool small but again this is not a holiday hotel. In summary it does what it says on the tin. We needed a...

We held our car club presentation night in a function room up stairs. The tables were set up beautifully with white table cloths. We chose a menu of Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Breast or Grilled Tasmanian Salmon. Sweets were a choice of Rum Panna Cotta or Baked New York Cheesecake. The meals we could not fault although maybe a bit on...

Very nice helpful staff. Beautiful room and setting. Quiet despite being off the main road, but the rooms are "secluded" within an inner courtyard. Rooms were spacious and amenities nice. Location is not as convenient as we had thought but it was not a big problem but did add to our driving time.

The place was nothing like the photos that were shown upon booking. We were put in a house down the street where the the kitchen was virtually bare, garden neglected and light switches were in very unusual places (which is not very helpful in the dark) Not worth the price we paid!

Just off Nepean Highway, not far from the Highett metro station. Clean, well maintained, confortable, friendly staff. It was packed on the week-end, but it was still well maintained and quiet. A good spot if you need to be not to far from the city but most of your business is in the southeastern suburbs.

Had a great dinner at the restaurant - meal was excellent. Great food and excellent service from Wilson. For the morning, grab a coffee - Eva makes a great coffee! The room is basic but fine and a good size. The hot water shower is powerful and hot!

The Buckingham is a special place for our family. We stayed at the Buckingham when visiting family going through a difficult time. This modest hotel was an oasis of tranquility for all of us over several months. We made endless short notice requests - guests coming and going, young children, room changes, meals out of hours. The staff of this...

An excellent motel in a very good location. Walking distance to Southland Shopping Centre, Highett restaurants and on ly a short drive to the many sand belt golf courses. The accommodation is spacious and well presented. Despite being on the highway double glazing suppresses all noise.
