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

The conversion of a 'club' into a 'boutique hotel' has been expertly implemented resulting in a memorable experience to stay in and dine surrounded by well preserved architecture and period decor - with unobtrusive access to modern communication technology

An amazing building with an amazing history. The food was good and the rooms decent, although a bath would have been nice rather than a shower. The balconies from the bedrooms are fantastic. The bar shuts very early and we missed it as we didn't finish supper until 2130, which was a great shame.

What a dreadful experience. We arrived positively looking forward to our stay at the renowned Kimberley Club but were quickly disillusioned by the dour faced, dis-interested receptionist who managed to mention that our room was one of the little ones in the courtyard, handed us our key, and gave no further information about the hotel layout or facilities - great...

We were very disappointed in the image this establishment portrays and what is actually obtained. The reception lady is rude and snobbish, the food was a great disappointment. As our veg and salad arrived 20minutes before our actual main course. Which was a burnt piece of meat, and was ordered medium rare. We never complain or rate an establishment, but... More

A very nice hotel. Lots of memorabilia from the 1800's. Lovely rooms. However give the restaurant a miss. The staff are very slow, under trained & the food terrible. Our main course was sent back & the dessert not even touched. A great place to stay, but find a restaurant elsewhere.

Experiancing the history of this place and the people who wrote this hirtory was a joy. Room was an extraordinary place to be in. Atmosphere through... More

Lovely historical feeling. Rooms very clean & comfortable. Food is fantastic. Location is very central. I don't know about a 4 star rating & prices are a bit steep but still a comfortable stay. No generator with current load shedding.

The Kimberley Club is an experience not to be missed, from the beautifully restored building to the exquisite food served in the restaurant. People have complained about the location but, although it is no longer salubrious, it is close to many of Kimberley's famous attractions and the architecture of many surrounding buildings is lovely. There is secure parking and the... More

I have just returned from spending two weeks at the Kimberley Club and I feel very privileged to have stayed here. The history of the place is extremely interesting and I learned as much from the pictures and the memorabilia as I would in a museum. The bedroom was beautiful in an "out of Africa theme" with a lovely balcony.... More
