Child Policy


Buckingham Place welcomes children aged 5 years and above and so, 5-12 year olds are not charged for their bed or breakfast. By prior arrangement two extra-large ground floor suites can accommodate 1 single bed or 1 bunk bed (sleeps 2 kids) in a small air conditioned annex/box room. Again by prior arrangement, four extra-large bedrooms can also accommodate 1 or 2 extra single beds. These beds are suitable for children or adults.

Please note; all bedrooms and suites including those mentioned, feature a fixed position double bed. Each extra guest. aged 13 -16, is charged US$30 per night and accommodated in an extra-large bedroom with an extra single bed (rate includes breakfast).

Sorry! We regret we are unable to host even the cutest babies, infants or toddlers at any time; and as child suitable accommodation and extra beds are limited, THEY MUST BE REQUESTED PRIOR TO RESERVATION.



Children can prefer running around a restaurant to sitting still with the grown-ups. In such cases, early evening meals or room dining is suggested or occasionally requested of parents. We do our best to keep kids safe, happy and considerate of others, and we do love ‘em - humbly we ask parents do the same.

Interesting wildlife, dogs, our schizophrenic rescue-pony Rocky-G, as well as plants, trees and certain areas of the hotel can spell danger for unsupervised kids. Soft bare feet are vulnerable to bites, stings and cuts, staircases are not gated, swimming pools and ponds have no guard rails and balcony railings can look like colourful climbing frames to little folk. We are sorry, truly, and regret our mistake, but ‘back in the day’ Buckingham Place was located, designed and built by a bunch of thoughtless, childless adult men!! We now go out of our way to make kids happy and enjoy having them around, providing they’re not so small as to be in harms’ way.
