    Personally, this experience was one of the best suite experiences in Sri Lanka. Friendly staff were guided us to find the hotel in first and, room was clean and tidy and foods were delicious.

    Where to start. Nick Buckingham is a legend - and his hotel team is first rate. The food... oh the food - truly brilliant. Don’t leave this place without at least having ordered tuna for your supper. The bedrooms and bathrooms are a wow factor, the oceanfront pool is superb and the whole experience is fantastic. Well done Nick Buckingham - you’ve created a mini paradise. Kind regards Lucy & Chris CP

    Buckingham Place is a hidden gem, not to be missed by the discerning traveller. At the end of a hot and dustry road you will find this oasis of tranquility, superb service, high end accommodation and a welcoming smile. As their information file says; you can check out, but you can never leave!

    This hotel is truly a hidden gem. The serenity you feel when you're here is out of this world and every little detail is thought through. My fiance and I stayed here for 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer because it was the first time in our trip when we felt we could stop planning the details of the day and just relax. Nick, the owner, greets every guest and asks several times how their stay is. He makes sure you know that everything could be customized to your liking and there is no pressure to conform to any sort of "norms", starting from the time you want to eat breakfast to where you want your meals to what is actually in the meal itself. And by the way, the meals are all a la carte and not buffet-style because they are all made from fresh, local ingredients (the dinner options rotate as well to keep it fresh and interesting). We planned to do at least one day trip, but ended up not leaving the hotel at all during our stay because it was just so perfect. The only downside is that you cannot swim in the stretch of beach directly in front of the hotel, but we liked the pool better anyway and just went for walks on the beach instead. The staff is so friendly and make you feel like family. Even if you don't like something you ordered, you can send it back with no problem and they will be kind and apologetic about it instead of treating you like a problem (which I've experienced at other places). 11/10.

    The Dream Hotel

    Having been to around 45 countries and experienced backpacking in hostels to luxury 5* star resorts and everything in between - Buckingham Place was by FAR the best hotel we have ever stayed in. There are too many positive things to say without writing for hours, but here are three highlights : 1) The attention to detail - from the incredible bathroom toiletries (even toothpaste!) to the complimentary refreshing pool side drinks, everything has been thought of. 2) The swimming pool is PERFECT. Sparkling clean, great temperature, large, beautiful - with a bar section too! 3) The staff - they make you feel part of their family. On Xmas morning, a knock on the door with breakfast in bed and a HUGE bag full of presents and Sri Lankan souvenirs - where else would this happen?! This wasn't just a hotel, it was a memorable experience we will cherish!
