The room and setting is beautiful and most of the staff very welcoming and informed. The food served at the restaurant is however not to the standard expected from such a facility. The risotto was undercooked, Salmon was overcooked and the streak was tough although the latter was correctly prepared. I would rather eat from the Bistro menu.

Budmarsh Country Lodge is one of the gems of the Magaliesburg. Situated 'off the beaten path', in the quiet bush surrounding, the lodge offers tranquility and space for your mind to settle and spirit to restore from the bustling city life. BCL offers a fine dining experience and wonderful, warm service.
