“Awesome Valentine's!”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

My husband booked one night for us to celebrate Valentine's and The Blades made it a truly memorable experience. We were booked into an executive suite - very spacious with a sitting are, bath in the open area and beautiful views onto the Roodeplaat dam. The rooms are decorated very tastefully and luxurious and have all the amenities one could wish for.

Dinner tables were set on the lawn with fairy lights and candles and very romantic. The food was excellent and very well prepared. Upon our return to our room, candles were lit in the room, I received flowers on my pillow and we even had a heart of rose petals on the bed, all very romantic and a really special touch, not to mention the champagne in our room on arrival!

The only blemish on this fantastic experience, was the slow waiter service. We waited about 30min before we received our drinks and it took almost an hour before we received our starters.

Overall we had an awesome stay and would definitely return to The Blades.

Room Tip: Executive suite are very spacious with beautiful views.

Excellent!!! Worth every single star, even more. The facilities, service, staff and surroundings are fantastic for a great bush experience. Health & spa section needs improvement.
