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

We have been to Budmarsh on 5 or 6 separate occasions over the past few years and have never been disappointed! The picnic is always a wonderful highlight as well as the sumptuous dinner that Chef Chris flawlessly prepares.

My wife and I returned to Budmarsh for an unannounced wedding anniversary romantic weekend. As ever, the welcome was efficient and friendly, the allocated room was the honeymoon suite and the sunny Sunday afternoon showed off the gardens beautifully. Room is excellently furnished and has its own outdoor private spa bath to relax in before preparing for the Chef's superb... More

We love to break away for a weekend every now and again and try to visit a new place every time. We didn't know much about Budmarsh before we arrived except for the fact that it's in the countryside and that they brag about their cuisine. Well they may! I enjoy a good meal from time to time but dining... More

Me and my partner visited for a weekend to really experience some tranquility and good food.....and we certainly got both. The staff are super friendly and helpful without being around one all the time. The food was excellent and chef Chris can really be proud of his achievements. A special thanks to Albert, who really went out of his way... More

I traveled there to attend a workshop for a whole week. I didn't even miss home. Tranquil, beautiful, very scenic. Very relaxing and helpful staff. Very romantic, will definitely come again but this time with a partner.
