We booked the high tea for a 90th birthday and had the most wonderful experience. Many thanks to Jody and Wilson for providing the best customer service. The room was perfect & gathering for a champagne at the bar set the scene. It exceeded my expectations and highly recommend

I made a short visit to Melbourne and was looking for accommodation for two nights between the city and Keysborough. The Buckingham came up with a good deal so I booked it through my booking site. On arrival and in fact on leaving I found reception staff friendly and helpful.

I was disappointed with my stay, the room was not what I expected an executive suite to be, the bed was not a king size, it was quite compact and it wasn't till later in the evening that I realised I was given the standard room. The meal at the restaurant was very nice and

Dear Tashatatkan, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a detailed comment regarding your recent stay with us. I'm sorry to hear you were not happy with the size of the bed in your room, if you would like a bigger sized bed, I would suggest booking our Spa Suite as they are King size beds. We also have the option for a queen bed or king bed in our executive rooms and we are happy to take requests. We encourage our guests to contact reception if there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable. Unfortunately, our liquor license does not allow us to serve alcohol past a certain time depending on the day. However we understand that our guests still may want a refreshment which is why we offer the minibar items. Thank you for bringing all of these issues to our attention as we can now focus on these and inform the relevant departments at the hotel. I'm glad to see you enjoyed the surroundings around the hotel and our friendly staff during your stay. I hope you will provide us with the chance to offer a superior experience in future. Kind Regards, Front Office Management

"Take rooms "down the back""
"Maybe ok to sleep but wouldn’t recommend eating there"
"As the back rooms are near the railway line and the train horns bother you, better ask for a room closer to the front near Nepean Hwy."
