Our stay at Budmarsh exceeded all our expectations. The service, food and wine cellar are exceptional, but what makes it stand out from the crowd is the level of individual attention given by the staff. Our needs were not only met but sometimes anticipated. My birthday was noted and a big fuss made, including a birthday cake presented at dinner,... More

Budmarsh is great at making you feel special. From the person receiving you at your car, the sherry in your room, the little buscuits everywhere, it all makes you feel well looked after. Its a beautiful place, with two big dams and a fantastic view. Quiet, scenic, country escape.

I had the most exciting experience in South Africa's country side at Budmarsh Country lodge. located in a farm near Magaliesburg town, the place gives one a rural feeling yet with a taste of luxury. Spacious room, heated bed and excellent country view made the winter enjoyable

The service at the lodge was perfect, the staff is very welcoming and professional, the little attentions such as a fireplace lit in your room when you come from dinner is very nice, the jacuzzi was really good. The restaurant for dinner was outstanding! The only point to improve is the sound proofing of the rooms in front of the... More

Bumarsh is fairly reasonable, but is by no means a five star. Not in any way to be frank. The finishes in the rooms and bathrooms are dated and fairly average. The staff try hard, but lack the finer touch one would expect from a five star hotel. Dinner was probably the biggest disappointment. Although the food was great, the... More

Perfect place to spend a weekend or a few days to relax. The rooms are pure luxury and the staff extremely friendly and attentive. The rooms are great, very comfortable, spacious and sunny. The electric blankets on a cool evening were very welcome and were switched on at turn down. Breakfasts and dinners were perfect in every way. The grounds... More

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your two days at BUDMARSH. Summer is the perfect time to visit BUDMARSH, the bird life is already returning, the dam is nicely stocked for Fly Fishing, and Picnics on the lawns or High Tea under the Oak tree are some of the favorite activities. We look forward to your... More

A suite on the pool, just completely tranquil and quiet. The rooms are immaculate, with every need catered for. Small touches make the experience even better - chocolates and passion fruit at turn down, waffle robes. Meals at vertical and just to die for. Picnic baskets watching the ducks with a glass of wine. It was really hard to leave.... More

I spent 2 nights at Budmarsh Country Lodge and really loved it. The whole experience was amazing. From the call to confirm my booking by Tracy, the welcome at the gate, the room, breakfast, cake at tea time and dinner... The service is exceptional and place a real treasure. I'm definitely coming back again.

We had a wonderful weekend break and enjoyed the lovely gardens.. The Five course meal was excellent. Enjoyed the afternoon tea and homemade cake in the lounge in front of a lovely fire. Would certainly recommend.
