African Roots Guest House is one of the best places I've stayed. The service was outstanding, the room was comfortable and the food was great. I would recommend African Roots Guest House to anyone, business or pleasure.

The rooms are decorated with a mixture of African/Indonesian/Indian decor. Original art used in all rooms and dining area. Pleasant rooms and friendly staff. The surroundings are restful with large trees. Pleasant pool area.

Guest houses that are run by the owners are always the best. While this guest house offers a high standard (clean, spacious and safe) it also has a personal and friendly feel. Beautiful gardens, friendly staff and GREAT food!

I arrived in Polokwane in the evening Sunday only to find that I was not booked. This is where I usually stay, because they knew the travel company, they eventually booked us in without hassles. The payments were sorted out in the morning. Because of the staff willingness to go beyond her scope of duty, it left an impressive memories....

Very relaxing atmosphere! Nice quality linen and I loved the all night function of the electric blanket! Very friendly and helpful staff. The fully stocked bar fridge was very convenient. I will for sure stay there again.

Had a lovely stay. Next time I would just like to stay in one of the front rooms. The studio is too far to the back and very quiet. As a woman alone walking to my room was a bit scary. I would however stay there again. The service was excellent.

The only reason I've given it a 4 instead of a 5 is because the Internet can sometimes be a problem and the dstv channels are very limited. Other than that the staff are incredible and the service is really good. The standard room we stayed in (9) is spacious, has a nice view of the pool, plenty of cupboard...
