Owner's description

The Blades Restaurant seats up to 42 guests and the outside desk area seats up to 50 guests. The restaurant and deck is open to non hotel residents. The chefs have created an exclusive menu with a small selection of signature dishes. You will find a selection that pleases all palates. Their success lies in the simplicity of the cuisine. All the dishes are lovingly prepared, using only the freshest of ingredients. Whenever possible they use organic herbs and vegetables grown in their own gardens at The Blades. Guests can enjoy a hand picked selection of wines to accommodate all budgets. Meals can be savoured inside the elegant restaurant, outside on the deck or alfresco on the lush green lawns, on the water’s edge. Bookings essential.

    We stayed over at The Blades on 17 Oct 2015 as we had a wedding down the road. We arrived for lunch, and sat on the deck next to the river to enjoy the view, and waited about 30mins for a waiter. Eventually we had to go find one that would be willing to help us. He then told us that we cant sit on the deck, as it has been booked out by another party. Even though they were more than willing to accept our R3000 for the room for the night, we were now unable to enjoy the facilities. We left it there as we didnt want to cause a scene and went to sit inside. Long story short, the lunch service was terrible. When we got to our room, the toilet couldnt flush. The bridespair's room (Executive suite) where the bride got ready for the wedding, was not cleaned, and they got back to a honeymoon suite filled with plates and dirty and messy. The next morning the breakfast service was also a complete disaster where NOTHING was organised. We ended up having to eat cold breakfast. We then found foreign objects in the eggs, and at this point complained to the manager. He told us that whatever black plastic we found in the eggs it is not harmful or dangerous, so its not a problem. He also had an attitude of "too bad" about all the other complaints. How The Blades got a 4 star rating is beyond me, please be warned not to go anywhere near this place, as you will have a much better experience under a tree in the bush for a lot cheaper.
    PATHETIC SERVICE!!!

    WEBSITE AND ON EAT OUT IT SAYS OPEN - BUT THEN I CALL TO BOOK AND GO THOUGH A LOT OF EFFORT TO TRY GET THE LADY ON THE OTHER LINE TO UNDERSTAND ME AND GET MY REQUESTED NOTED.. THEN SOMEONE CALLS BACK AND SAYS THEY CAN NOT ASSIST!!!

    TRAIN YOUR PEOPLE BEFORE YOU GET THEM TO ANSWER PHONES!!!

    Very disappointed!!!

    Customer service - POOR!

    The Blades has a beautiful restaurant with incredible food...
    Choose between cocktails on the upper deck, mouthwatering desserts on the lower decks, comfort food in front of the fire in the main restaurant or a scrumptious picnic on the main lawns in front of the dam...

    The food is fabulous, the setting picturesque and the service friendly and top notch! You will not be disappointed.

    A superb piece of tranquility 40 mins from Johannesburg. The food is amazing.

    I have eaten at The Blades on numerous occasions. The food is absolutely delicious. The only thing better is the view. Stunning
