We traveled to Kimberley for a 10day convention, and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay! The location was perfect in a quite cul-de-sac, two minutes by car up to the ski hill and convention centre, two minutes by car or a short scenic walk down the hill to downtown and the Kimberley Platzl (and directly across the street is a great authentic German restaurant).
The house is gorgeous, bright and spacious, and all original, local wood. We stayed in the Sulivan Suite, and our room was fabulous. The European style bedding was new to us, but it was very comfortable and the bed was good quality. We did share a washroom between the 3 adults in our party, but with the convenience of provided bathrobes the situation worked out just fine. All the facilities were clean and very well-kept, and there was always plenty of very hot water in the shower (which is very important to me). Our room opened directly into the garden and hot-tub area, and we thoroughly enjoyed the geenery and watching the deer right outside. Individual thermostat control in each room was a blessing, as I cought a cold part-way through our trip but was able to stay cozy warm in our room (and with a wonderful duvet) while I recovered.
Also, Anja makes the best breakfasts! Every morning we had a table bountifully spread with many homemade jams, homemade bread, buns, and croissants (my favourite), and variety of cheese and cold cuts, not to mention the beautiful authentic Dutch china. Additionally, every day at breakfast there was a hot offering, such as pancakes, blueberry waffles, omelet, eggs Benedict, etc and a plate full of fresh fruit for everyone. Anja also made sure she remembered each person's coffee/tea preference, how they prefered their eggs cooks, and our various dietary restrictions, which was very kind.
Anja and Theo both are great hosts, very welcoming and friendly, always ready to give us directions, and make great local recommendations.
Overall the atmosphere at the Alpenglow is wonderful- by the end of our stay, it was like saying good-bye to family. We will definitely stay here again, and have already recommended it to everyone.
