Words are just not enough to express our gratitude for assisting us in creating our first romantic getaway memory at your lovely lodge.Budmarsh is just in a league of it's own, and we have a great time there with Vincent and rest of the guys. Compliments to the chef, and we loved the excellent service from check-in to check-out. We... More

Great people, stunning service, out-of-this-world food, beautiful room. What else is there. I have been many times, I intend to go many more times. If I could afford it I would retire into one of their rooms.

I did not expect much when I made the booking. When we arrived at the lodge it was a lovely surprise much more than what I expected. This lodge has all the bells and whistles from a jacuzzi in the bathroom to a fine dining experience. The restaurant has an European trained chef and the dining experience is excellent. The... More

Too much noise at night. Banging doors, diningroom noise, noise from other rooms. Woken up throughout the night. Walk down to dams has too much old farm equipment lying around and garden could look better. Screening off farm sheds and removing a few unwanted trees could help. Floors in rooms are tiled and bedside mats too small. However, food and... More

Thank you for your review and we take you comments very seriously. I have rubberized the door that caused the banging and with the seasons changing so is our landscaped gardens including walking trails back in pristine condition. I do look forward to welcoming you and your wife back to Budmarsh. More

We had a midweek getaway for one night at Budmarsh. We were the only guests staying and had just missed a corporate function crowd from the night before (phew!). I had an in-room massage, which was ok but could be more relaxing (tapping and light slapping not my thing). Staff are attentive and professional but may lack some warmth. Our... More

We had a strategy session for a small executive team. Absolute prefect venue. We had the lodge to ourselves, fabulous service. The food was magnificent, great wine selection. Rooms spacious and warm for the winter (heated towel rails etc )

Superior suites are great - fireplace in winter is a great feature. It's a small lodge - lots to do in the area if you want to travel - if you want peace and quiet and just chill then this Lodge is a good option - more geared towards couples than families I would think. Spa treatments can be prearranged... More

This was our first getaway from our toddler so we'd planned a relaxing and romantic weekend escape. The lodge was nice enough, beautiful garden, clean, well appointed rooms however we found a bit of country charm, personal touch and 5* "wow" lacking. The grounds weren't as expansive as we thought and we were unable to find any nature trails. The... More

Beautiful rooms, wonderful service and the most amazing food!!! Just the place to restore and relax. The spa treatment in our room was a real spoil and the fire each night made for a cosy and comfortable sleep. We loved our time at BudMarsh and will definately be back.
