This newish motel just south of Morabbin on the Nepean Hwy is a wonderful and affordable location if you have to find accommodation on the way to Frankston.. Units are comfortable with good beds, all the usual amenities and toaster included. Units are very quiet from road noise. Car access is fiddly as it is on a service road so...

Everything about this establishment is 'value for money'. Great beds, well equipped room, excellent shower, big tv, good security, easy parking, cheap laundry, excellent service, very close to lots of shopping options and my favourite 'Busbys' their in house French restaurant. Value for money is important to me and this one is right up there if you like a few...

Great hotel in the southeast of Melbourne, I stay here every year to watch the Australian Masters Golf which rotates around the famous Melbourne Sandbelt courses. Hotel is very clean, plenty of car parking and a restaurant if you wish to eat in. The showers have good consistent water pressure which is a must for me. It's very close to...

This hotel had friendly staff, the room was clean, the shower good and the bed comfortable. I didn't see any electric blankets so if I was staying on a cold night I would have preferred one. There was a spare blanket in the cupboard which I used. I also used the iron which was not very good. I was happy...

Dear Guest, Thank you for spending some time with us recently. We welcome your genuine feedback and are glad to know that you found our rooms comfortable and location nice and quiet.

I booked this place based on its 4 star hotel class. It probably scored just by having key things in place. But it can never compare to proper 4 star establishments. This aside. The service was overall average. Some staff were quite smiley and friendly and others were just bland. Checkin late at night was the mostly bland part. Breakfast...

We have stayed at the Buckingham several times over the years and have always found it surprisingly quiet, as we come from a rural setting. The rooms are very clean, plenty of hot water, extra blanket, everything you need. Staff are exceptional, especially when an unwell husband left his wetpack behind, complete with puffer, pills and special electric razor! This...

I stayed here for 1 night in the month of August 2015 as had some meetings in the same area. The rooms are quite good and comfortable. They have ample parking space. Their breakfast was also excellent. The staff is also friendly. I would recommend this hotel based on the location.
