An amazing hotel for the guest who prefers luxury at an affordable price. Rooms are tastefully decorated, the food was amazing. The hotel has a rich history and is very impressive. Will definitely visit again

Wonderful old fashioned style and comfort and food to die for on top of everything else! Beautifully decorated with real old fashioned Colonial grace and style, but with all the mod-cons included for your comfort and enjoyment. Highly recommended!

The Kimberley Club was the perfect place to stay when visiting Kimberley for a historic visit. We were very impressed with everything and would recommend it to anyone. There was so much character in the hotel and we loved imagining what it would have been like during the diamond rush.

It was like turning back the clock and revelling in the history of the movers and shakers of the diamond rush in Kimberley. It was an outstanding history lesson seeing Cecil John Rhodes's statue at the entrance, seeing photos of General Harris and of Ernest Oppenheimer and wondering whether any ghosts remain. The wood panelling,the grand staircase, the attention to... More

A most enjoyable stay and a throwback to the days of the diamond rush. One could feel and see the history in the hotel. Just a pity that the The Library wasn't really a library. I would have loved to browse some old novels that Rhodes undoubtedly enjoyed with a whisky and a cigar. The fish was remarkably good and... More

Reception desk was not particularly friendly or informative. We went down for supper that evening the food was dreadful , I actually sent my... More

We stayed at this classic boutique hotel in downtown Kimberley. The restaurant, shocking bad food and service by the poorly trained staff made the stay a never to be repeated visit. No sign of a capable and customer orientated manager to whom we could voice our complaints. Nobody seemed to care about the guests making sure we were happy. Sad... More

When traveling from Capetown to Johannesburg, Kimberley has broken the long hot journey. This is probably the 10th time we have stayed at the Kimberley Club a lovely old establishment steeped in history. We chose a room with only a shower,a bath would have been nice but not first preference as we wanted a room with balcony and one must... More
