Excellent! The food was out of this world. The staff is well trained and friendly. The accommodation is 5 star. Short trip from Johannesburg, approximately 45 minutes. Free wi-fi. Tranquil setting. We had an excellent new year celebration. Will definitely be back.

I would recommend that all hospitality establishments in South Africa send their staff to the Budmarsh Country Lodge for work experience and training. I have never been given such pleasant efficient service anywhere in Africa never mind South Africa. It just goes to show that it can be done on the continent with determination and effort. The room was spotless,... More

I have spent two weekends at Budmarsh, first with my daughter and then with my husband. We have sampled the picnics, breakfast, Sunday lunch and dinner. To say that the food is amazing is a total understatement! i would highly recommend it for any special occasion.
