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.


Self Catering Studio 1:
A one-bedroomed suite with separate lounge / kitchen area, bedroom with Queen bed and full bathroom (bath and shower). This unit has a private walled garden, gazebo and day-bed.

Self Catering Studio 2:
A one-bedroomed suite similar to Studio 1, also with Queen bed, this unit has a great feature of a second bathroom, making it ideal for couples who can then have ‘his and hers’ bathrooms.
