About UsWith the ambience of an exclusive, urban 'townhouse' hotel or pension, at Buckingham we offer a brand of the current world-wide hospitality trend for 'no frills' pampering. This means that guests can expect an exceptional basic service, at a great price, but retaining the indispensable touches of luxury that make a trip away from home, be it for business or pleasure, convenient and relaxing. We specialise in self-catering accommodation, though we are delighted to provide a range of breakfast services, should they be required, from a simple breadbasket and preserves to a delicious 'full house' English breakfast, upon request. It is your choice. We have a great array of trendy coffee shops within either a short drive or walking distance of the guesthouse. All rooms have a list of these in their guest files for ease of reference - or just ask us where we go!
One of the key aspects of our establishment is its great location. Nestled in one of the city's lush Edwardian 'northern suburbs', Craighall Park also offers unbeatable access to Johannesburg's key business nodes and the Gauteng region's first-world network of freeways. Gauteng, South Africa's smallest province, is also Africa's undisputed business powerhouse, constituting the richest - and fastest growing-concentration of service and heavy industries on the continent.
Gauteng is also a major global and African transport and communications hub, with OR Tambo International airport offering exceptionally convenient, frequent, airline connections to Europe, Asia, the Middle East, South America and the USA. The area's second airport, Lanseria (about an hour's drive door to door), offers superb air connections up into Africa. Gauteng – and the Johannesburg-Pretoria conurbation overall – is the gateway to this pumping continent, with its many fascinating, under-explored travel experiences and exploding business potential. Undoubtedly the world is coming to Africa to do business – and they do it here, in chic, convenient, future-thinking 'Jozi'.
