I have heard that this is one of the ''old ladies" and wanted to visit this hotel. The hotel itself is in excellent state. Clean and friendly staff. However, there is a jazz club next to the hotel and the music was deafening for the whole night and we couldn't sleep at all. We left before breakfast.

We stayed at the Savoy over 20 years ago and went back for a nostalgic look with the plan to have coffee and cake. The hotel was run down. The carpet in the entrance gall was threadbare, the windows from the outside were rusty and the whole area was run down. We asked at reception if we could have a... More

Thanks for letting us know that you had fond memories of the Savoy Hotel. The area around Savoy Hotel has changed a lot, and unfortunately the Hotel has changed with it. Some changes are already in progress: the carpet in the upper floors has been replaced recently and just the ground floor has not been done yet. The curtains, staff... More

We took our family to the Savoy Hotel Kimberley and had a great time. The hotel has an historic ambiance, as it is more than 100 years old. The staff was friendly, helpful and gave advise on the sights of the city. They could explore town on their own, as everything is in walking distance. The town hall is just... More
