The location - overlooking the Big Hole. Helpful and attentive staff.
I was quoted R850.00 a night per room, When checking the bill came to R960.00 a night
The staff were friendly and the place was well kept.
Perfect location, beautiful rooms.
Some of the bathroom tiles were cracked. The bathroom was not up to standards
Somewhat overorganized and cold
Very close to the Big Hole, ake for a room with a view
I was put in a room (411) where to open and close the main door required extra-ordinary force. The said wooden door had a huge visible crack on the outside. The metal strip to connect carpet and wooden floor just snapped out because of the force required to access the room. I slept not knowing for sure if the room was locked or not.
My son was sick, and they reallly tried to help us with medicine , and make it comfortable for him.
Chef could not cook a decent medium to rare steak. First steak totally overcooked, second steak thin with a rancid smell and totally undercooked. Unfortunate for a hotel with such great potential
Location. Ease of booking. Cleanliness
Room wasn t clean. Electricity issues, old and broken furnitures,... not a 4 stars at all
ideal location for tourists.
Low standard of food
TV had no signal could not watch TV, could not access the free internet service (500MB), towel rail in shower loose, For what the hotel offer versus the price too expensive
Beautiful interior (room and hotel) which exhibits the history of diamond mining in Kimberley, excellent food at the restaurant
Interesting old photographs about the mines
Sadly my wife's dinner was disappointing on the first night but the hotel staff dealt with the situation in a professional manner. The lake just outside Kimberlerly is famous for it's variety of Flamingoes but it was difficult to get close enough to enjoy the view of them. The local tourist board could improve the access.
Very comfortable hotel, ideally situated overlooking the Big Hole and the mine museum as it is right next door to both and enjoyed the drive through the Karoo afterwards with empty roads for miles, easy driving.
The location by the Big Hole and the conservatory restaurant.
Did not feel comfortable walking beyond the hotel property and mine attraction.
location next to the Kimberley mine and museum.
Next to the Big Hole museum, you can walk in from the Hotel grounds. Quaint swimingpool. The arcitecture fits in with the theme of the Museum.
Reception staff could have been friendlier on arrival.
Location and comfort of rooms.
The hotel is in the middle of town and near all the points of interest. They very much enjoyed there stay and even had a swim at the pool. Tank you very much for having our oversees visitors.
restaurant's staff was not prepared (festive season?), bored and annoyed by questions; housekeeping was not very attentive to the resources of the rooms, e.g. towels, pillows, coffee sachets
reception's staff was good and supportive
A very simple order of sandwiches and a salad took absolute ages to arrive in the restaurant! Traditional farm dam as swimming pool nice, however not very practical for young children.
Location right next to the Big Hole! Old fashioned grandeur of the lobby.
The location was perfect for us as we wanted to visit the Big Hole. It's a few minutes walk away. The pool was however the highlight, traditional style Kimberley pool
Service in the restaurant was poor and very slow due to high volumes of customers.
Room was comfortable, clean and up to expectations. Location is good (next to Big Hole) with easy access back to N12.
