We were charged R900 for new years eve and were completely disappointed with the food and hungry at the end of it. It was a joke actually, i thought food would be atleast decent for the price. My wife had been before and had recommended we go but she agrees we are never going back. Location and service were excellent.

For me, this hotel isn't quite 5 stars but because of the way it ties into its unique location, it gets it. Architecturally, it's really interesting; the rooms are sunken into the terrain - like caves - with grasses growing on the roofs, and the hotel brings in touches of our human ancestry in its design and decor; but our...

Beautiful boutique hotel, lovely and super spacious rooms with all the luxury you might need or want. We stayed a Sunday night and had a delicious dinner with a wine paring at Roots Restaurant. The only little problem was the amount of flies everywhere. I know the hotel is out in nature and flies are part of nature but this...

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and his birthday. We had the honeymoon suite which was magnificent! There is jacuzzi outside and a wonderful spa bath in the centre of the room. I would recommend dining at roots restaurant and staying over to enjoy the full experience of this special place. It truly doesn't feel...

Having visited Roots numerous times over the last few years and always leaving 100% satisfied with the food and the experience, I decided to celebrate my 30th there and hired the private dining space to do so. The food was tremendous and absolutely perfect as usual, but the overall experience was completely ruined but the hundreds of flies that joined...

Had a really enjoyable lunch at Roots Restaurant. The wine pairing matched the food perfectly. The food was exquisite. We go to Roots quite regularly and have not been disappointed. I would strongly recommend Roots to anyone who wants to try some fine dining in Gauteng.

An exquisite restaurant in the cradle of humankind which has captured the mystery of the land in the architecture. The food is even better. Many courses of fine dining prepared with the level of mastery seldom seen.

Service was excellent, food delicious. Enjoyed the duck and freshly baked bread. There was a swarm of flies which made the lunch unbearable, however the manager put extra citronella candles out and explained that this was not the norm. A lovely, relaxed and serine setting. Will definitely go again.
