I had the fortunate experience of being booked in to the Kimberley Club for a couple of nights due to a mix up by my customer. This will be my first choice every time from now on. The building is not too dissimilar to an English stately home in its interior design and decor. The history of the building, the club and Kimberley are well documented throughout the hotel. Hit the bar (observe the dress code) on a Friday evening and you will encounter the club members having their weekly wind down. They are a very hospitable and friendly group who made me feel almost a temporary member of the club. I was fortunate enough to have room one which is a two room suite, it is huge with a roll top bath at one end of the bedroom, plus an additional shower room. The lounge area is also large and has a three peice suite along with a could of tables with chairs. The food in the restaurant (dress code applies) is very good and amazing value, drinks are also very cheap. The service is very good with the staff all remembering my name and addressing me persnally. The breakfast offering is varied and plentiful with the hot options cooked to order. The bed was comfortable and the whole room fitted out with high quality materials. All in all this was an excellent experience and would highly recommend this hotel and associated club to all. Be aware there is a dress code for the bar and restaurant, long trousers and collared shirts are required. Denim is OK and polo shirts as well.

Room Tip: Try and get room one if available, although it is at the front so can suffer a little traffic noise.

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!
