It is with great sadness I write this review. Over the past two and a hald years, I have stayed at the Kimberley Club three times. During this time I have seen standards deteriorating significantly, alongside increasing prices. The most obvious is the gross deterioration in the restaurant in terms of quality and service. What is worse, this coincides with...

If you want a slick corporate hotel, don't stay here. If you want history and bags of atmosphere and a glimpse into how the old diamond magnates lived 100 years ago, then this is for you. Take a sneak into the reading room, enjoy a G&T in the panelled bar and have dinner in the dress coded Rhodes Room. We...

We had made plans to drive further east before stopping but a friend told us we must not miss the chance to stay at the Kimberley Club. What a great decision, the hotel is amazing and has managed to keep all of the character blending in the new and the old. We stayed in room one which was delightful and...

The Kimberley Club is a beatiful old hotel which we have previously enjoyed. The staff were very plesant and helpful and we enjoyed a delicioous dinner and breakfast - not many establishments commence breakfast at 6.30. Filled with wonderful memorabilia

What a disaster! Having spent 8 nights on a road trip through SA staying in some lovely 4 star (and one 5 star) establishment we had high expectations of the 4 star rated Kimberly Club. However, from the moment of check in things did not go well. There were two of us travelling together and they had put us in...

We very much enjoyed our stay here. I can't recommend room 11 highly enough . The staff were delightful. There are very few hotels like this left. History just oozes out of its walls. Sitting on the verandah with a g and t or in the bar over looked by historical pictures was gorgeous. The internet and phones and safe...

If museums give you a chill, then spending a night at the Kimberley Club will leave you petrified. But if you are chasing a colonial dream, love black and white pictures of British soldiers and wonder what it may have been like to endure the siege of Kimberley, the Club is for you. The rooms are charming, especially the one...

The hotel is very beautifully decorated, the room I stayed in was extremely spacious and clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Halaal food can be arranged if communicated to the hotel in advance. The food was particularly good, and the presentation was lovely.

Very comfortable rooms in a lovely old Victorian building - once the club of the famously named 19th century diamond magnates of Kimberley. The staff are very welcoming and go out of their way to make sure that guests are comfortable and all needs are met. The restaurant serves decent meals at a reasonable price. This is a particularly good...
