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.

Very good standard rooms and facilities. Excellent standard of meals and service in the Busby's Restaurant. Ample free car parking. Free WiFi. Sensible prices both in the restaurant and the accommodation. Located very near some great early morning coffee shops.

Even though the weather was miserable the Buckingham was a good place to stay. The room was a high standard, clean and a reasonable size. The bed was very comfortable and the shower excellent. The only issues are parking which is tight and getting to the location is a little tricky. While the Buckingham is about 25min from the CBD... More

If you have reason to be in the South-East of Melbourne this is a good option. First of all it is conveniently located in terms of being on the Nepean Hwy. So plus points there. Also the turn off to it is located in a small additional lane separated from the main highway lanes by a cement/concrete/whatever barrier. So you... More

We stayed here for two nights while my partner had a medical procedure nearby. Rooms are neat and tidy - they're also quietly tucked away from the noisy highway. Very close proximity to the Westfield shopping centre. Meals are really great quality but expensive.

We stayed at Buckingham for 3 nights in a executive room. We found all the staffs friendly and helpful. We booked a package deal through Buckingham website and it was cheaper than other website. The hotel is close to all the restaurants, train station and only 10 mins walk to Southland shopping centre. We would definitely stay there again.
