About Buckingham Guest House
Buckingham Guest House, located in the popular, up-market and central suburb of Craighall Park fills a unique niche in Johannesburg’s accommodation offering.
Occupying a mid 20th century farmhouse-style home and set in an established garden, Buckingham offers chic, uncluttered rooms where comfort, quality furnishings and a serene atmosphere are the priorities – at an outstanding price.
We believe that top quality lodging doesn’t have to cost the earth, in line with the current global trend of offering great quality basics at a ‘luxe for less’ price.
