An exceptionally positive experience
This was an exceptionally positive experience for us in so many ways. We were warmly welcomed, had delicious breakfasts, and treated like old friends in this wonderful guesthouse. We truly appreciated how kind, friendly, and helpful everyone was at the guesthouse as this was our first visit to Uganda. We will definitely return to this guesthouse and recommend it to others who are visiting Uganda.

Clean hotel, great staff, close to town and beach.
This is a guesthouse so it isn't fancy but the rooms are big and clean. There is hot water too. Breakfast is good. The staff is very helpful and polite. I felt very safe at African Roots.

Clean hotel and great for our short stay
Only had about 8 hours at the hotel before my flight but everything worked just as needed. Good shuttle service, good couple hours of sleep, and a couple of restaurants within walking distance.
