“Very personal Guest House, not for lovers of anonymity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Overall this was a nice guest house, however it was very very personal, which i in general don't really like, e.g. the duty to have smalltalk on arrival (about our background) and during breakfast (what we did last night and what we had for supper etc.). I belive the owner meant it really only nice and wanted to create an overall friendly and family-like atmosphere, however it is not what i (as a city person) am looking for.
The breakfast was alright - we had omlette (it seems like men get a bigger omlette in general, hmm...) but for example no fresh fruit only dried fruits. The rooms had everything one could look for, e.g. microwave, some biskuits, fresh milk, cutlery etc...no complaits with that.

Thank you very much for the feedback, it is much appreciated. What is interesting about our establishment is that we had 77% occupancy during 2012, and in the current year this is running at 80%. This achievement is due to guests supporting 75 On Milner Lodge, many on a recurring basis. We are grateful to all clients for their support.
The heading of the review and content may seem to be trivial (emphasis on "small talk") , however, let us assure you that we do not want to get into any person's personal space and we do respect this at all times.
Our focus remains, and will always be to render an excellent service and facility to all clients.

75 on Milner is what all Guest Houses should aim to achieve!
Professional and friendly service coupled with spacious accommodation that is clean, comfortable and tastefully furnished.
Nico and Lene most certainly make you feel welcome and are always on hand to assist.
All the excellent reviews by other guests are absolutely spot on and well deserved.
Another Kimberley gem!

My daughters and I had the pleasure of staying at 75 on Milners on our recent trip to South Africa. We could not recommend it more highly. The excellent reviews by other travellers are spot on.
Our room (family room) was spacious, luxurious and tastefully decorated with a full range of facilities which includes a lovely en suite bathroom (very well laid out with separate shower and beautiful bath tub) and kitchenette equipped with everything you could need. The attention to finer details in the room as well as the immaculately clean rooms and bathrooms made our stay so much more enjoyable.
Everything was superb from the crisp white linen, scrumptious breakfast, excellent service and the friendly staff. Nico and Lené are the most gracious hosts and show a genuine interest in their guests and their needs.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!

My parents and I stayed at 75 on Milner Lodge over Christams holidays, and it was a great experience. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable and the service was great. Breakfast was delicious and the lodge was located right in the centre of Kimberley, only short drives from main attractions and shops. I'd highly recommend it for anyone who stays in Kimberley.

It was my First stay at a B&B. Initially I was sceptical and was immediately put at ease. From arrival to departure, The hosts Lené and Nico Fourie were welcoming warm, helpful, hospitable loving and nuturing. The rooms and bathroom were comfortable, extremely clean and excellent. The fittings were beautiful. We were warm and cosy through the winter evenings.The breakfasts were sumptious and delicious. We even had choices. We could walk to wherever we needed, easily accessible. Amazing , Amazing Wonderful Hosts! Loved It!
