Budmarsh - The Best Romantic Weekend Away 🍾🥂

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Nov 2021via mobile
My Husband Andy & I were welcomed and treated to an unforgettable stay at Budmarsh.

After hearing of a previous bad experience we had encountered for our anniversary a few years ago in Parys, Glynn blessed us with room number 12 which is a super clean, fully equipped room with all requirements and the highlight for us was the jacuzzi 💕

We were welcomed by the Manager Inga and then handed over to our concierge Felix for the weekend, who took fantastic care of us from morning to evening, leaving no stone unturned.

If Felix was busy, we were assisted by Thabo (Mr T) and Wongani with every staff member going the extra mile to ensure we were well looked after.

Fantastically well thought out meals were delicious with lovely presentation and our picnic on the lawns, under the trees was very romantic, tranquil with so much food and treats to finish!

Thank you to the Management and every single staff member for helping to create a fantastic, relaxing and pampered weekend.

What an incredible venue, we will be back!! 😎Andy and Lorraine Deans

Country lodge hotel in Magaliesberg set in lovely peaceful surroundings, It was a quiet time for the hotel but we were made to feel welcome, the room was spacious and very comfortable. The set course evening meals were beautifully presented and delicious. A very pleasant , restful get away, many thanks to Glyn and all the staff.

Loved our short stay at Budmarsh, Friendly and efficient staff is always a Winner. Beds so comfortable and all so clean. Our room was lovely and spacious and had our own balcony, we even had our dinner brought up to our room so hubby could watch the Rugby in quiet privacy. THANK YOU GLYNN FOR ADAPTING YOUR MENU TO SUIT OUR TASTE, FOOD WAS DIVINE.

My girlfriend and I just wanted to get out of Johannesburg a bit and we’re searching for a relaxing break away from the busy city.

Budmarsh provided everything we were looking for and more! Excellent service, friendly staff and wonderful views. I especially recommend the picnic!

From the moment we parked at noon, we were met by Felix and he assisted us during our one night stay. A true getaway, as we hardly had to lift a finger while being immersed in the scenic and landscaped environment. The staff, in particular Felix, ensured that all our wants and needs were met.

The picnic was great. A variety of fresh and tasty food greeted us out of the basket. The setting on the lawn amongst the trees ensured we enjoyed ourselves under the winter sun.

The four course dinner was nothing short of amazing.

The accommodation was comfortable, had more than enough amenities and was spacious.

Thank you Budmarsh, I look forward to returning.

A lovely stay at Budmarsh this weekend! In the midst of a lockdown, these guys have kept great standards and a wonderful service. Thier garden and lake are still top tier with wonderful surroundings. It was peaceful and tranquil- exactly what I needed to clear my head. A special shout out to Felix who took care of us from the second we arrived til we left. His work ethic and professionalism are really welcome. The picnic set up was also really awesome with an amazing assortment of food, I highly recommend this experience. Thank you so much to the Budmarsh staff... I will definitely be coming back again
