My fiancée and I stayed at Budmarsh during Easter. I have stayed at other 5 star accommodations before, but Budmarsh was such a good experience that I had to write a review about it. The Accommodation: The lodge itself does not have many rooms, so it is very quiet and peaceful due to the limited amount of guests. The lodge... More

We had a picnic when we arrived on the Saturday which was lovely, they set it up for us in the garden. Again the food in... More

Really enjoyed our stay, Rand Water made is challenging but the setting is lovely. Food is great! Lots to do in the area. Grand Children wants us to go again, we won the big jug of Easter eggs by guessing the quantity!

We had a light lunch at Budmarsh over the Easter weekend. The staff were delightful and attentive. Food was superb, service superlative and the atmosphere and surroundings splendid. Next time we will take the picnic option which looked outstanding.

We spent a very pleasant afternoon with friends, lingering over a delicious and beautifully presented Sunday lunch under an old Oak tree in lovely manicured gardens. The meal was three courses plus an amuse bouche and a plate cleanser of sorbet between the starter and the main course, each dish plated to delight the eye before an making an equally... More

Old school boutique elegance, very different from what we expected! The room was lovely and the food amazing! We made use of the mobile spa (can definitely recommend them for some extra TLC) and booked a picnic for lunch in the magnificent gardens . There was an unexpected downpour as we were getting ready to go out for lunch, so... More

Nice lodge, but not exactly what we would rate as 5-star (except for the restaurant, which is how we suspect they got the 5-star rating) The service was outstanding, very friendly end efficient staff. We were in room no 6 close to the kitchen, and it was very noisy at night after the kitchen closed, and even worse early morning... More
