Pleasant, quiet location with a great view, rooms isolated and private, and staff who seem to above and beyond the call of duty to meet guests' needs. I was on a business trip, arriving late and leaving early, so can't comment on the bar or on the food generally, although the room service sandwich arrived promptly and was better than most

I decided the morning of my birthday to book myself for 1 night stay at the hotel and massage. When I got to the hotel, the Receptionist was wonderful as well as the welcoming area. It was so breathtaking, I had high expectations. My room was facing the bush, which blocked the sun and the view was clustered. I also found the room okay, not quite spectacular as I thought. It would do with some brightness, especially the couch and linen. The food, drinks and restaurant service was the highlight of the trip. The massage the following day, was also okay. Overall, the experience was average, there was nothing mind blowing, no scene/activity that blew my mind away. If you want to eat and sleep the whole time booked here, than sure you can do that in peace.

One night in paradise (NO KIDS!) My husband and I spent our first night away from home and our little one since she was born. The peace and tranquility at The Blades was incredible. We relaxed and enjoyed every minute.

The location was great being close to Pretoria. It was lovely and tranquil. Staff friendly and the place was very clean. The room was a little bit cold due to the high ceilings but I am sure in summer it is beautiful! The fireplace helped keep the room warm.
