Nice hotel close to shopping complex

Posted 21/07/2014
Very enjoyable stay, rooms spotless, staff helpful and courteous. Surrounds lovely. Quiet despite being close to main road and train station. Free wifi bonus with our children. Beautiful meal at their restaurant. Close to large shopping complex(Southland) and short drive to CBD. Will definitely stay again if visiting Melbourne.

Pleasant motel near facilities.

Posted 20/06/2014
Pros: Quiet. Comfortable bed. Clean.
Cons: Power points near toaster and kettle.
Location: Good for golfers and shoppers.
Quiet rooms despite being located on the highway and near a train line. Walking distance to small shops and short drive to major shopping centre. Staff pleasant. There were no power points near the toaster and kettle, which was a little strange.

comfortable hotel with easy access to city.

Posted 17/06/2014
Pros: As above
Cons: It has been recently renovated, so everything works well for us.
Location: Around the corner are good cafes and restaurants and the Highett Station for city access. Southland is walking distance. Beaches very close.
We often choose the Buckingham for Melbourne visits from Sydney for its large, comfortable rooms, quiet setting, friendly staff and easy access to beach, shopping (Southland) and city. Highett train station is very close. When we arrive tired after a long drive from Sydney we enjoy the convenience of the restaurant and good service once we are booked in. Prices are moderate, parking is free.

Good location for access to public transport.

Posted 13/06/2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Room cleaning times as each time the staff arrived to service the apartment it was reasonably late in the afternoon.
Location: As above and department store shopping available virtually minutes away via car.
Stayed at this location for a basketball carnival played at Tulip St, Cheltenham over the June long weekend. Very close to local shops, take-away and the train station as our 2 Brm Apartment was accessible via View St at the rear of the property. Bedding and kitchen facilities were fine but the lounge area and the configuration of the sofa / chairs was uncomfortable.

Home away from Home

Posted 27/05/2014
Pros: The cleanliness, relaxed ambience, free Wi-Fi and internet. Wilson in the restaurant is a great host and a pleasure to have him look after our dining
Cons: Nothing - keep up the great work and food options.
Location: As mentioned above, the proximity of Southland and Port Philip Bay - We often visit friends in Rosebud when we travel to Melbourne = a big plus.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the Buckingham. The location, friendly staff, access to main roads, Port Philip Bay and shopping complexes. The proximity of the Buckingham made it easy for us to visit our family in South Road, Moorabbin.
