Finding a suitable place to celebrate an 80th birthday - with family aged 13 to 80 from all over the world was not easy. Budmarsh was the perfect place! We were treated like VIPs with Mike and his team (especially Wongani) looking after us. But the highlight had to be the food. With 7 course meals - we felt like...

My wife and I visited in March 2017. Apart from the disappointing short stretch of gravel road from the main road leading to the gate of Budmarsh, everything else was great! From the room to the service, everything was taken care of by the friendly staff. Had an overnight problem with the shower in Room 9, but it was swiftly...

Beautiful room, lovely picnic, delicious eight course dinner, scrumptious turn-down truffles, hearty breakfast. One cannot ask for more- we even spotted the resident otter when taking in the stars before dinner. Make sure to order a spa treatment from the mobile spa and relax in the comfort of your own room. Suggestions to management: not sure of the situation in...

BudMarsh is special and quaint. The 8 course fine dining dinner was the best experience. I found the rooms slightly old fashioned for the price we paid but overall very pleasant night away. Neat and tidy and staff were friendly.

Stayed at this establishment for two nights, the 19th and 20th of March. We were treated with excellent service from friendly and very efficient staff. We were treated to a private dinner in the cellar on the first evening. Seven courses of the most mouth watering delicious food we have ever experienced served by friendly staff. What an experience.

We and 4 other friends spent a lazy Sunday afternoon underneath the trees having a gourmet picnic. The staff were excellent without being intrusive, the picnic baskets held lovely surprises and the setting was perfect, we loved the blankets and pillows provided.
