                WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT !”

                This hotel looked LOVELY & we expected a great time. BUT WERE WERE MASSIVELY DISSAPOINTED ! The quality was not as good as the photos. The staff were lazy & disinterested & incompetent. (especially Reception). The rooms were LOVELY but super noisy with loud staff & guests. Staff & guests control what your experience will be like. Bad staff & unsophisticated guests = bad stay. So you could have a great or a bad time at the same hotel. What a pity this hotel was not like in the pictures because it could have been stunning & so close to JHB & PRETORIA.

                Disappointing ”

                My husband and I celebrated our 8 year anniversary at the Blakes. Considering I had notified the staff in advance and had pre-ordered a bottle of wine for the room, I was expecting at least an acknowledgement and wishes upon arrival. Instead we proceeded to check in without a mention of our anniversary, nor did we feel very welcomed. We were encouraged to see the grounds then as later it wouldn't have been possible as there was a private function. Upon arrival to our room, I was happy to see the bottle of wine pre-ordered was there, however there was no bottle opener - uh? how do you expect me to open the bottle? Again, no personal note welcoming us. The room itself was comfortable, clean and view of the dam was great. The dinner facility was average, a little outdated - whilst there's a lot of potential, it just not really looked after and lacked ambiance. A little candle, a little flower on the table something to just make the table setting a little more romantic? Disappointing stay.

                Nice BushVeld Getaway”

                The only problem I had was that the receptionist insisted I pay for the room when I had already paid in full via credit card several weeks back. There was no communication between the blades and Agoda. The payment was not allocated. Truth is if I did not have access to my account on my phone I would not have been in a position to prove I paid and would have most likely paid twice! Everything else was great though. The breakfast was amazing! a real feast. Fit for a king

                Thank you for your review. Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience caused. We value feedback such as your as this assists in improving our service overall. The reception team will be retrained on the procedure for Agoda Bookings and I trust we will not have a repeat of this. I am glad apart from that you enjoyed your stay with is and I hope to welcome you back soon.
