          Please maintain the garden towards room 22. Please consider variety meals because eating same meal for today its not nice. The staff were friendly. The bathroom door need to be painted. Also put in soap holder, shower caps and shower soap.

          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.
