I'm a returning guest and always stay at this property whenever I can. I'm often given an upgraded room (at no extra cost to me) to meet my booking requests, fantastic!
The staff are lovely and extremely helpful. I love the refurbished rooms and bathroom. In addition to teacups they now have coffee mugs in rooms too, nice touch.
Beds are always very comfy and very little noise is heard from the busy highway.
The property is close to trains and shopping, an on site restaurant offers great food too.

We chose to stay at the Buckingham recently rather than our usual place around Albert Park because of the GP. We are a group of golfers. Very happy with our choice. Rooms were excellent, the breakfast was fine and staff helpful. Location for the golf courses was brilliant and the price reasonable. We have decided to base ourselves there in the future. The only negative was the wifi. Although free it was a bit hit and miss and needs to be improved.

Room Tip: For less fit travellers request ground floor.

We stayed here for one night in early January when visiting friends.We were apparently upgraded and were given one of the single storey rooms.The room was spacious and had all we required ,fridge, kettle, and tv.There was a lovely modern bathroom.It was in a private courtyard area and very quiet,we hardly heard a sound from our neighbours.The hotel is set back on the Nepean Highway, a very busy road.It is several minutes drive from Brighton.There is a large shopping centre a few minutes drive away, and some local shops around the corner.
The restaurant was closed when we visited because it was New Year holiday time.The staff were helpful and printed a route to Lakes Entrance,it was very helpful as the area around Melbourne is quite busy .Wifi was free.We enjoyed our visit, and the rate was good for the area and time of year.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room.

Dear Wanda110,

Good to hear your feedback after a while. Our property is becoming a popular stop over due to lot of inclusions such as Complimentary Wifi, Foxtel and Car-park. Our restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner for the entire year except the Christmas break and we do appreciate your understanding during holiday period.

Thank you to your kind words. We hope to welcome you again in future.

Kind regards,
The Buckingham Team

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.

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.
