Its difficult to write a review for Budmarsh without sounding trite and over gushy.... 1.Lovely, generous size rooms thoughtfully furnished. Some beautiful antique pieces, but still maintaining a very home from home feeling. 2.Gorgeous, tranquil, well kept gardens with beautiful trees. Be sure to have high tea( fine china, beautiful antique silverware, and a generous . selection of tasty tea... More

Its in the country, its full of fresh air and lush green trees and lawns, there's Ducks waddling about's and you're yawning, you feel sleepy most of the time, you're under a tree and the crazy world just disappears somewhere over the hill and down the road that you drove in on, picnic baskets and sips of wine, long conversations...

Budmarsh excels in every way, from the beautiful rooms with jacuzis or outside showers, to the food, to the highly professional staff. Ideal for those romantic weekends away. Will return in a heart beat.

After staying in Cape Town for five days, and then five days on a game reserve, we chose to end our trip to South Africa on a quite note at Budmarsh. Since we were flying out of Johannesburg, and definitely did not want to stay in the city, we thought two nights here would help us decompress after the previous... More

This cannot be a 5 star Resort! It must be 10 star! The accommodation, garden, food and services are all exceptional, and I will recommend other people to stay there in the future. Our stay was so relaxing its a sad to leave. Moses, one of the friendly staff members went the extra mile and beyond. It was such a... More

As a 5 star lodge one does expect quite a bit. How nice to experience something as good as what the marketing story is. Well done to manager, Annetjie and her team. The dinner really was fine dining and the choices very clever. Great to have a fresh cooked breakfast to order and no food being kept warm in a... More

A quick break away weekend. The service from arriving to leaving is exceptional. He food is fine dining with interesting variety of flavours. The room luxurious and well equipped. A very BIG plus is that the rooms do not have telephones!! The stillness of the whole establishment is incredible and adds to the serenity of the experience. A world class... More

Was surprised by my wife with a night away in Magaliesberg, and neither of us could have been happier. From the gourmet picnic under the trees to the 6 course dinner, everything was spot on. And, as vegetarians, we were even more impressed with the culinary range the chef (Chris - wonderful guy) displayed. Th only thing better than the... More
