I stayed for New Year's Eve. It was very convenient as I could enjoy a lovely meal at the Oyster Factory and follow that with a few beers and not have to drive anywhere.
The hotel is beautiful and airy, however I found the room very small and the WiFi did not work in the room.
The fan/air conditioner was very noisy but at midnight and a belly full of partying it didn't worry me.
Breakfast was a huge spread and very tasty. Staff were a bit noisy in their duties especially when relaying tables (or was that the headache kicking in).
The price is very high and I don't think it's great value for money unless of course price is not an issue to you.
The Protea Kimberley is advertising rooms at almost 25% of the price so obviously it's all about location, location, location.
