We revisited Buckingham Place wondering if it would live up to the great first experience the year before. We had no reason to be concerned! If anything it was better knowing our way around and how everything works. Nick and his team were perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for us and our son was very spoilt. Booking...

Wow! Many thanks for following up your most recent stay with an equally fabulous review to your first – I’m thrilled to read that you’re already planning another return! I was very touched when you arrived this time, as you did so laden with small, thoughtful gifts for us all - it was a lovely moment, thank you. Truthfully and...

We did a little round trip on Sri Lanka and this was our favorite place!!! It is a definitely a little paradise on Sri Lanka which Nick has created here! Lovely appartments in a beautiful garden and scenery, which is the home of Rocky and other animals, delicious food and last but not least a stunning staff and service! I...

Hats off to you for a really wonderful review! I’m thrilled to read of your perfect stay, thank you for telling us (and the world of course!).

Buckingham Place is a special and I would suggest a unique experience in Sri Lanka. The accommodation of only 15 cabins, set in large grounds with absolute privacy, is luxurious. We had a garden suite overlooking the lagoon, with a huge bedroom, dressing room and a spectacular bathroom. From the moment you arrive you are welcomed by all the staff...

My girlfriend and I spent 5 nights here in early January. I wasn't sure what to expect as although the reviews were very good I wasn't majorly impressed by the hotel website(which I told Nick the owner whilst I was there...) When I left I told Nick that I didn't feel like I'd spent 5 nights in a hotel but...

Thanks again for reminding me, I wholeheartedly agree! Our website is long overdue a makeover which, it will certainly get as we open the extra new facilities later this year. Your review is heart warming and helpful. It’s great to know you left here more relaxed than you’ve felt for years – the place must be working?!! It’s great to...

We had the pleasure of staying here for 3 nights. The setting is very attractive and enhanced by countless birds, monkeys and Rocky the pony. Our room was one of the 'Garden Suites'. The entire floor area must have exceeded 1200 sq feet. The 'outside' bathroom with large circular bath and fab shower was a treat. Big comfy bed from...

Top Guests! A hoteliers day, whilst long, demanding and tiring at times, is fun, rewarding and filled with memorable moments - providing that is, ones guest list is as good as ours! Your residence was shared with typically lovely guests, but both of you are memorable for our friendly exchange, banter and a missed photo opportunity; when our daft pony...

My wife and I came out to Sri Lanka with some friends to enjoy a 16-night, 4-location tour of this beautiful country. We chose to stay 4 nights in each of: Kandy, Tangalle, Hikkaduwa and Wadduwa. The lowest- cost of these hotels were in Kandy and Wadduwa, the middle (twice the cost of the first 2) in Tangalle and the...

It was out first visit to Sri Lanka and Buckingham place was the first place we stayed during our holiday. It was soon obvious that it was a very lively place to be with superb service delivered with calm efficiency coupled with delicious food. We did not initially realise just how good BP is compared to much of the competition....

Firstly, please forgive the tardiness of my reply! Currently we’re at the height of season so it’s 'all hands to the deck' to look after guests – sparing little time for anything else.
