Having read some reviews that complained about the noise from the adjacent bar, we were apprehensive about our stay for one night. This was offset though, by several reviews that rated it excellent. So we were not sure what to make of it. It turns out both are correct and would advice travelers that enjoy the buzz of nightlife and... More

We had a great time! The bar was busy with locals, we had drinks and food. The waitress wasn't the best as she would forget our orders, but that was cleared up when we changed waitresses. The Deluxe Room was truly fantastic! I would definitely stay here again.

We overnight there on our way from Cape Town to Johannesburg, loved the room and staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Bathroom and room was clean and very well decorated and even though they kept the old Victorian feel of the house it was still modern and stylish.

Even though dating back to 1872, this hotel more than meets a person's needs. The sense of Kimberley history greets you at every turn with beautifully framed photographs, which is a pleasure to behold. Luckily the hotel has moved on with the times, with modern comfortable furnishings and bathroom facilities. There is secure parking behind remote control locked gate so... More

Checked in before 14h00 but they accommodated me , I got a nice looking and spacious room. I asked to be moved to a room with a bath, they did without any issues. The food is heavenly. Steak is succulent and verryyyyy nice. Breakfast was just unfortunate though, plain terrible - food and service. Service at dinner time was super... More

I confirmed my booking with the establishment on 6 Nov. I asked them then if I need to pay a deposit and the answer was no, we could pay when we get there. Got there (all the way from Keetmanshoop) on 3 January 2015 and found out that they cancelled our booking. We were tired and have two small children.... More

I visited this establishment on a few occassions during trips to visit family in Kimberley. I love the olde world feel and i am somewhat transported back into another era gone by. The service is good and the many screens are great to watch a gme or two.

Very impressed with the hotel, front desk very friendly and accommodating,even upgrading us. Went to the bar and very impressed with the quality of food served, service was great! The restaurant is worth a try! Will go back there! Thanks to a well run operation.

Restaurant (The Half & Annebelle's) has the best food around. With great service to top it off, I would definitely recommend their meals. Top it off with a good beer and you're winning. Can't comment on accommodation as I've never stayed there.

This is the coolest and probably cheapest place to stay in Kimberley. Huge rooms and bathrooms, friendly staff and there is the sports bar and restaurant right inside the hotel little "plaza". Great value!
