About African Roots Guest House and Conference Venue

African Roots Guest House is located in the heart of Polokwane and offers luxurious accommodation in a tranquil setting. Numerous types of units are available, with twin, queen-size and king-size beds. Each unit is equipped with a TV with satellite TV and M-Net, a well-stocked minibar fridge, tea and coffee facilities, fans, heaters and hairdryers. All linen and towels are provided and during the winter months, electric blankets and duck-down duvets are also supplied.

The Guest House offers a curio shop and a tourism information desk, as well as laundry- and room services for guests. Secure off-street parking, as well as a safe, is available and the garden also features a swimming pool and braai facilities. The units are on a bed and breakfast basis and other meals can be arranged. We cater for both vegetarian and Halaal requirements.

Being located in the heart of Polokwane, African Roots Guest House is ideal for either business travellers visiting for a conference or tourists on holiday. Polokwane is an ideal place to stop on the way to the Kruger National Park, with many shops and many historic sights to keep visitors busy.

Conference Venues: We offer conference facilities for 25 to 40 people. A fax machine, an Internet-enabled computer, TV, video, digital projector, and notebook are available. Caterers can also be arranged, if required.

Covid Safety Approved: A medical consultant designed a set of protocols for us to implement, and staff have been given a theoretical training module by Dr Anders Ragnarsson and a practical training course on cleaning and hygiene. Further info in Important Information.

COVID-19:

We have only opened 12 of the 22 rooms for the Level 3 period.
All rooms have had all loose items removed i.e. scatter cushions, sculptures etc.
3 Foot operated hand sanitisers have been installed for use by guests and staff.
All towels have been removed out of public toilets and replaced by paper disposable towels.
All public places such as dining rooms have been closed.
All cleaning of rooms is done with sanitizer and paper towels which are disposed of after each room to stop cross contamination.

All staff have been issued with:
- Three face masks
- Face Shield
- Disposable gloves
- Disposable Aprons
- Hand Sanitiser

Staff have also been given a theoretical training module handled by Dr Anders Ragnarsson and taken through a practical training course on cleaning and hygiene.

We offer contactless check-in and check-out. The reception area is not used at all.
All documentation is done before check in via email.
Temperature of all guests and staff are monitored regularly.

Keys are sanitised and placed in the keyholder of the guest’s room and left there on check out.
All surfaces and remotes are sanitised after each guest.
Where feasible a room is not booked for a day between guests.
Where guests request it we do not clean their rooms unless requested specifically.
Only rooms where guests can park directly or at least 5m from their entry have been opened for bookings.
A dedicated Laundry pick up and drop off area has been created in the open air at the conference room. I apologise if this is not visibly very appealing but it is the most hygienic method to get the laundry company that we employ to collect and deliver the laundry.

Where dinner is requested it is prepared by 1 staff member and delivered to the guest room via a tray service using one-use salt, pepper, tomato sauce etc.
Breakfast has been replaced by breakfast packs to minimise contact.
These are usually given to the guest the night before to restrict contact.
