.Stayed at Buckingham Place guest house a few years ago and it was excellent. This time around on 2015-12-19/20 the experience was much different. the reception received was very good but the following was not, 1.

Our guesthouse is 108 years old which is no excuse for shoddiness however we are fighting to preserve our yellowood wooden flooring and have recently replaced some of the floor boards and old antique features.

Great place to stay at a reasonable price, lovely outdoors area to enjoy the birds and sun, not far from the shops, waterfront a short drive. Rooms clean and spacious. The owner/manager was helpful and the breakfast good value, the place feels secure and safe but not a concrete prison like some places in SA.
