Had a splendid time and relaxed like royalty! Amazing food and service that is almost too much!! Will most definitely return to this tranquil environment to find inner peace and rest for the soul.

We were very impressed. The service was good, the rooms clean and the cuisine very decadent.

The personal attention from the staff is exceptional. The small things like the tea, coffee, cake and cookies gives it a warm, homely, feel. The food was really good.

We had an awesome time at Budmarsh - the service and food was out of this world! Thank you to Jakob for his special attention - what an asset to this business! My only little little complaint is that we were hoping to do some fly fishing but the little dam was very small and the other 2 big dams were drained. A bit disappointing but overall we will most certainly be back....specially for the food!!!!

We had an awesome time at Budmarsh, the facilities, food and service were brilliant!I would just clarify the contents of the rooms a bit more on your website. The room we took had no armchairs, besides a little wooden chair at the small desk. We were not able to relax in our room if we wanted. Would imagine for a 5 star this would be a pre-requisite.Lastly, why ask if we were celebrating anything (our anniversary), when it wasnt acknowledged at all. Other guests were receiving cakes for birthdays, etc.
