“Everything I needed”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

This is a lovely property. I had a room at the back near the fountain and it felt very private. Room was big and it had a bath-luxury. Pool was just big enough and clean. Gym is well equipped. I did not try out the restaurant, toaster in room is nice touch. Need to ask for plates and knife though. Comfy bed. Friendly staff, Loads of parking. Closer to shopping centre.

Good afternoon Lee,

Thank you for your review on Trip advisor. Executive rooms near fountain are our most popular rooms as it gives a very boutique feeling to our guests. I am glad to find out that you enjoyed your stay with us.
Next time you are with us; do not forget to try modern Australian cuisine in our restaurant. Our restaurant team will look after you very well.
Thank you once again for staying with us. See you back in future.

Kind regards,
The Buckingham team

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting relatives who live in this part of Melbourne. Really couldn't ask for anything more from a place of accommodation. The room was clean and quite spacious, comprising a queen bed and a single bed, TV, a bar refrigerator stocked with drinks etc at moderate prices, snack foods (at cost), complimentary tea/coffee and biscuits, a toaster (but no bread or condiments), and a comfortable bathroom with toiletries (and I'm pretty sure an iron and ironing board). There was also complimentary wifi. The hotel is situated on a busy highway but as other reviewers have said noise in the room was virtually non-existent and sleep quality was very good. We were offered the breakfast buffet for $19.50 but didn't have a need to use it. There was plenty of onsite parking. The hotel is close to a large shopping mall and the train line to the city. And being out of the city the room rate was very reasonable. Highly recommended.

Second time staying here and was just as good as last time. We had a room facing the Hwy and could not hear a sound. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Just down the road from Southland shopping centre and close to train line. Look foreward to our next stay. Price was reasonable also.
