My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Buckingham over the weekend; we received the GREATEST welcome from Marine on the front desk, which immediately gave us a really positive impression of the hotel. We were allocated a quiet room on the ground floor at the back of the hotel; it was spacious and very comfortable.
We visited the nearby (10 min drive) Stowe National Trust gardens during the day and were able to walk into Buckingham from the hotel in the evening to enjoy a superb meal at the Nelson St Restaurant - the walk took us through some pretty streets and through a park alongside the river. We used the pool, sauna, steam room and gym on the Sunday morning; some other reviewers have said the pool was small but we found it absolutely spot on.
There's plenty of parking available, including at the rear of the hotel, and there are a couple of supermarkets nearby if you fancy breakfast - there's a bar and restaurant onsite though if you don't want to leave the hotel. The bathrooms are a little jaded with some peeling paint and slightly grubby sealings around the bath/shower area, but this is a minor negative. The staff are what really make this a good place to stay - special thanks to Marine and Marian the Romanian barman. less
