“Historical charme”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

If you like history, you should stay at the Kimberley Club. The rroms are really good, although quite historical. As the Club is still well alive, you feel that this is not a hotel but a Club. Which is nice if you allow yourself not being too demanding. The breakfast is OK. On the terrace with the original entrance door, you feel the old mining days. But be aware of the the restaurant. There are much better options in Kimberley.

Our family stayed at the Kimberley Club for 3 nights. Options in Kimberley are limited so we were pleased to find something different. The hotel has a long history and it was a pleasant experience. The food was very good with large portions and many options. The building is very old, also some of the furniture, but this is all part of the experience. If you are into modern hotels then this is not the place for you. It does have all the typical things you would expect in a 4 star hotel. Our room was not very clean with lots of dust under the bed and the chairs on the balcony had not been dusted off in weeks. This was very disappointing as it is something that can be rectified so easily. Beds were comfortable. Sound from the street not good. Lots of noise on the Sat evening from cars racing down Du Toitspan road. Staff very helpful but not very friendly. This could just be part of the local culture. Overall not a bad experience and we will probably stay there again, but only because options are limited.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the road.

Glad we only stayed here for one night. The reception staff were disinterested. As the room was facing the road we could hear traffic and cars racing by all night. Room was ok although did not appreciate the cupboard like shower room with the basin in the bedroom! Overpriced. As the hotel was not busy when we were there, the waiting staff were bored and breakfast was uninteresting.The great thing about Kimberley was leaving it and driving down to Graaf Reinet. A wonderful road with beautiful views.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the courtyard and not the road.

Had the privilege of spending a night in the Kimberley Club.
General atmosphere and decor amazing. At every turn there is some interesting feature to observe.
Beautifully decorated room - excellent meals.
Staff friendly and helpful.
Makes one want to return again for another night!

Hotel is looking tired. Towels need replacing - very hard. A general overall of decor is required. One small bar of soap in room. Grouting in shower needs replacing. Good coffee machine! Friendly front desk staff. Airconditioning and ceiling fan available.

Room Tip: Request a room with a balcony - a porter will be required to carry big bags upstairs, but worth it.

Apparently when De Beers moved their office out of Kimberley some years ago, they renovated the Kimberley Club Boutique Hotel back to its former glory on their way out, allowing it to reclaim some of its former status. So this grand old building now has a new lease on life. Fortunately our two day stay included being there for Sunday lunch, which is when the newly appointed chef makes a particular effort with a buffet, and locals flock in to enjoy food. The hotel has a miriad woodpaneled rooms, a lovely verranda, a floral sittingroom, and more. I love staying in venues with a strong historical significance, and this building, which housed amongst the richest men in the world in the 1880s, is definitely one of them.

We really enjoyed our stay at this gem of a boutique hotel. Great atmosphere, great food, but what really sets it apart from other hotels is the staff. Fantastic service, always with a smile! Keep it up guys, the guests appreciate it.
