At first when we arrived we were not impressed by the location. But as soon as we entered the premises we were transferred back 100 years ago. The place is filled with history and superb colonial style. You can almost hear the poker players in the bar. And Rhode himself having another diamond conversation in the dining room. Brilliant service friendly staff. And especially like Isaac (Izak) who like to speak Afrikaans. We really enjoyed our stay with our kids. We love the history of the era of the diamond rush. Can recommend this for all of those who love history.

There is a huge sense of history at the Kimberley Club. The beautiful architecture and original furniture is a gem from the glory days of a Kimberley that was home to diamond magnates and other entrepreneurs. Sadly (or not) those days are over, and the Kimberley Club stands in a part of town that has become shabby and run down.
However, having said that, none of that shabbiness permeates the beautiful library, gentlemens' smoking room, ladies' drawing rooms and billiards room that is cared for with such love by the devoted staff of the Club.

We stayed here for one night on our route home from Botswana.
The staff were very friendly & the rooms very comfortble. We were upgraded to a balcony room which had a lovely lounge to relax & watch TV. It was lovely to have access to the upstairs balcony from our room & enjoy a cup of coffee in the early morning.
We really enjoyed exploring the historical photos & antiques which furnish this elegant old Club.
The meal we had in the evening in the dining room was very poor & the staff not well trained. We got our starters & main meal together & we did not enjoy our meals.

2 years later and we returned. So disappointed with our room - number 9 - which has no windows which open and which overlooks the staff entrance. Boy do they make a lot of noise when they start work (early)! No shower but a lovely slipperbath. The soapholder is so low that it is in the water when you sit in the bath. Do management never stay in the rooms just to see what it is like? Central airconditioning was efficient.
Make sure you get a room that opens to the balcony or one of the garden rooms as I hate to have locked windows or those with paper over them. Dinner was good though service is slow. Breakfast was on the stoep this time, not in the dining room and very pleasant. Wifi was good so they seem to have sorted that one out! Friendly staff though they made no comment when I said the ladies were making a racket under our room. Overall I would still say come and stay here for the atmosphere though I believe the level of service has dropped a little and, having now lived in SA for a few years, I would not recommend you take a wander around the neighbourhood. The carpark is guarded and has cameras and our bike rack and bikes were safe. We bumped into a ghost hunter on the staircase as we were going to bed and he told us he was investigating the ghost. I have to say we did not experience anything!

Questions & answers about the rooms

Answer from Engela001

I would suggest emailing the hotel - I have stayed in a few rooms but don't recall room 7 specifically. It is on the second floor, I think it might be a standard room. If it faces the road, there will be a door that opens to a patio. In the one room I stayed in there were patio doors, but no window (if you want an open window at night but frankly it was so hot I needed aircon on all the time). I have not stayed in the rooms across the passage, in other words not facing the road, so not sure about the window/door situation. The hotel is very helpful with questions and answer emails quickly.
