I was exceptionally impressed with Budmarsh during our first overnight stay. We had been to their amazing Sunday Lunches a few times before so we knew to have high expectations.
We were in room 3, upstairs near to the pool area and the room was stunning. We had out own semi-private balcony. I had read a large amount about the resort on trip advisor and some of the comments did have me concerned about the potential pitfalls of staying over.
Our bathroom was more than fine, it admittedly was not of the latest styling, but the finishes were neat, the bath was huge and the selection of little bottles, boxes etc was exciting! The heated towel rail and plus bathrobes were also a treat!
The food was exceptional, we literally lived our days waiting for it to reach the next meal time and wondering what new delight would be on offer! The presentation was so good that you wanted to photograph each course before eating it, but the venue is sufficiently classy that such an action would seem slightly unbecoming!
The attention to detail was amazing and we felt that we were being waited upon all of the time, there was always a friendly waiter to take an order. I also liked the fireplace that was always on in the lounge and the delicious biscuits which scattered under glass domes on all of the coffee tables. The delicious cake which was served for tea on the Saturday was just the kind of something extra which really makes you feel taken care of.
The rooms were pleasantly warm, and well sound proofed, we could not hear guests in any of the rooms near ours. We were often surprised to see how many guests arrived for dinner at night because you did not get the impression during the day and early evenings that there were so many people all staying in the hotel.
The attention to detail is evident, we were treated to dinner in the wine cellar on an evening when there were only two guests and also treated to breakfast room service the following morning.
We will definitely be back as we have already booked our next get away to Budmarsh
