Thank you very much to the Forum Homini and roots team. You spoiled our daughter and her friends for her special birthday celebration. Thank you for going the extra mile. The food was exquisite and the venue perfect.

Outstanding nights stay. I proposed to my partner this evening and everything about our stay was perfect, The friendliest and most accommodating staff, the nicest room we have ever stayed in and the best food we have ever had in the world. Well worth a visit for any occasion.

Roots was highly recommended to me by a friend who travels to South Africa quite often, and it did not disappoint. My father and I enjoyed a 6 course meal (a 7 course meal if you count the "pallet starter") and I enjoyed the wine pairing option as well. Each meal was beautifully put together - aesthetically pleasing with many... More

I had a vision of Forum Homini being hidden away amongst a game farm with amazing views and wildlife. Had wanted to go for years and was able to afford it as it was on special offer. The setting is one side houses and the room looks out at an embankment. The rooms are very nice. Comfortable, very originally decorated... More

based on recommendations, we chose the Forum for our anniversary, combined with a fine dining experience @the Roots. It was a great experience, and we will be back for sure (in Summer). The room was very spacious, and tastefully designed (Cradle of humankind). The staff was very friendly and helpful. We only spent there one night, but enjoyed it 120%.

We chose this venue on recommendation for an important anniversary. The quality of the food and ensuing service were poor. Given that this establishment positions itself on the top of the curve in terms of price and its so called 5 star rating,we won't be back

Eating at Roots was an amazing experience. Each course was artfully presented and prepared to perfection! All the ingredients could be clearly tasted - what the menu said you were getting, you could taste with clarity. A surprise for us was that in addition to the six exquisite courses, we also received a delicious amous bouche, palette cleanser after course... More

My husband and I visited The Roots Restaurant on the 18th of July, as part of a one night stay at Forum Homini. The whole experience was great! The food was amazing (come hungry!) and the staff were knowledgeable and very welcoming. I would highly recommend adding the wine tasters option to your dinner as the pairing is so well... More

Everything is just perfect from the moment you arrive up to the time you leave. You don't know where the hotel is until you arrive. If you think you need something they've thought about it and it is there. I love the fact that it is so close to JHB and feels so remote. A definite must have on anyone's... More
