Poor service at restaurant but the Manager did apologize with a free gift. Carpet in room filthy; sheets too small for bed; mosquito nets dirty. Extremely noisy till late night. Not value for money.
The booking mentioned a view, we had none. On check out the person told us we should have phoned to get a view. Also, it should be mentioned that it is a wedding venue. It felt like we were in the middle of event logistics the whole time. The pictures are a misrepresentation of where we landed up.
Stay was comfortable and the breakfast was not so bad
We had a picnic there. The burgers for the kids were stale. If they could improve on that
When you book with the blades rather book an upper room than a ground room to avoid unnecessary interruptions by security checks when chilling outside and possible theft. Book upper room for peace of mind.
A beautiful relaxing location outside Pretoria. The staff in the restaurant and the manager were very nice and helpful.
We travelled by taxi and it was a bit out of the way. Our cottage was the furthest from the reception and on arrival the hotel could not offer to carry our bags to the cottage. Luckily our taxi driver was still on hand or we wouldn't have managed to carry them that far.
