The rooms are housed 2 together, surrounding a large garden with trees and a large avery. Although we booked it as a self-catering unit, the rooms only had a microwave and limited cutlery and utensils. The living area furniture was old and worn, and I do not think it would meet 4* grading any more. However, the property is near... More

This was my third stop at Five Acres and I will be back. The rooms are basic but have all you need for a comfortable stay. Normally arriving late is no problem with the owners showing you to your room. They have choices of singles and doubles. One little issue is the door to the room has a small gap... More

What a gem. Situated on the outskirts of Kimberley on a large property under old trees. The hostess checked with us on our progress during the day and was at hand to welcome us upon arrival. She opened each of our rooms and walked us through explaining all the features. The rooms are fairly basic but totally comfortable and functional... More

We unreservedly recommend this guest house. You get exactly what the marketing blurb states, plus a bit... And that is the trick in the hospitality industry - to surpass expectation every time. Very comfortable rooms, little chalets with own verandahs overlooking lush green lawns and a large aviary. Great bird life. Airconditioned, ceiling fan, very nice bathroom, comfy bed with... More

We stayed here 2 nights enroute to Namibia, our room was a family room, large and spacious, the patio doors opened up on to lawned gardens with lots of trees and shrubs which was very pleasant and relaxing, not a critism but an observation, the decor and general furnishings were worn but this did not spoil our stay, the main...

For a two-night business stay, the Five Acres Guest House was completely adequate. Since the establishment doesn't offer dinners, just breakfast, the owner directed us to a restaurant in the town which did not disappoint. The room was clean and the electric blanket was welcome with the frosty outside air temperature! The good breakfast was a nice start to the... More

We booked a room via e-mail with the establishment for one night, arriving 5 January 2011, departing 6 January 2011 for two adults and one baby. We booked a double room and were under the impression that the room would be fitted with a double bed. Upon our arrival at the guest house on 5 January 2011 at 13:00, the... More

I stayed in Five Acres Guesthouse for over 3 weeks and quite enjoyed the view, tranquillity of the garden and the rooms. The rooms open up to the garden and I found very relaxing to sit outside while working after hours. Rooms are well equipped and nicely decorated. Service is good and staff friendly. I would advice to have breakfast... More

This was a pleasant B&B. The rooms are well equipped with all necessary conveniences in good condition, a comfortable sofa and chair, kingsize bed, bath and shower and plenty of space. A small kitchenette providing microwave, fridge, crockery and cutlery allows guests to prepare dinners and snacks. The garden is lovely with big trees attracting birdlife. Breakfasts are adequate and... More
