The room was clean, spacious and sparse, but the fan and the welcome box were very much appreciated and used. My lamp was broken and was replaced immediately. The staff members were all very friendly and helpful. The breakfast during the week was tasty and varied. On the weekend, there was not much offered. However, it was still tasty. The biggest problem we had was the late time of breakfast (7:30/8:00 for weekdays; 9:00 for weekends).

Very friendly and helpful porters. Room clean and comfortable. The only downside was the breakfast, as there wasn't much fresh fruit or choice of cereal (but that might have been because of the large number of summer school students staying).

Anon

It was a great stay - a note needs to be made with attention to detail around the bathroom cleaning - hairs from previous occupant left :( Overall, staff were wonderful and so helpful and friendly - thank you :)

We had a great time in Buckingham house accommodation for our daughter’s graduation. Spotless clean room, and very welcome attentions : drinks, soap and shampoo boxes. I would definitively recommend it.
