I would not have spent my anniversary anywhere else. Everyone went out of their way to make our experience romantic and a most memorable one. The service, venue and food were all out of this world! I look forward to visiting again

This was our second visit to Roots, the first was for lunch, which was exceptional and this one was a gourmet dinner with Ghost Corner wine pairing which was absolutely fantastic! All the courses were superb, the wine was delicious and it is such a wonderful setting. Highly recommended.

The service is great, every person we encountered smiled and was willing to attend to our requests. The staff enjoy what they do. Arranging a spa treatment in our suite at short notice. We enjoyed the dinner, wine pairing and breakfast. We'd go back for a special occasion.

Dear Charl7 It is a bit of a cliché and one for ever hear people saying in conversations that people should “enjoy” their professions and careers ,so to read your review and it testifying to the fact that we truly enjoy our careers is heart-warming. A wonderful testimony for any manager to read. You have made the proverbial day for... More

The room interiors were well thought out and encouraged you to relax from the start of your stay. The suite layout gave you a definite feeling of privacy, encouraging you to unwind and enjoy the facilities. Treats (i.e. bath goodies, snacks, bedtime chocolates and sherry) on every counter where a nice surprise.

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
