Ouwêreldse atmosfeer.

Mal oor die ou huis met sy krakende houtvloere en netjiese afwerkings. Gasvrou was vriendelik en baie behulpsaam.

Netjies, ruim en vriendelik.

Aangename ontvangs. Geluister na ons klagte van gaste wat na 00:00 lawaai het.

Appropriate for the area's history.

Peaceful, even thought it's centrally located. Guesthouse felt antique. Neat and clean. Warm welcome, very helpful.

Gepas vir area se geskiedenis.

Rustigheid, alhoewel dit sentraal geleë is. Gastehuis het antieke gevoel. Netjies en skoon gewees. Ontvangs en behulpsaamheid baie goed.

An excellent stay over.

The Cecil John Rhodes Guest House is a pleasant retreat from an otherwise busy day to day life. The guest house offers all the amenities a weary traveller needs to have - especially after a long day on the road. Centrally located in Kimberley, the guest is close to all historic sites that can be found in this unique town. Highly recommended!

Cecil John Rhodes Guest House's response

Thank you for the review. We are so happy that you could unwind after a long day on the road. We truly hope to see you at Cecil John Rhodes Guesthouse again.

Comfortable, tranquil setup and delicious breakfast.

Zelda received us warmly and we immediately felt good about where we were going to stay. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need. The bar fridge came in very handy. We liked the fact that on a slip you could choose a few preferences or dislikes for breakfast. All the staff are neat and friendly. I was especially impressed after we left and received a call about 3 minutes later! It was Zelda who told me a cleaner got my husband's wedding ring on the sink! He was so relieved that he gave the worker a thank-you fee. We'll definitely see you again next year!

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Gemaklike, rustig opset en baie lekker ontbyt.

Zelda het ons hartlik ontvang en ons het dadelik goed gevoel oor waar ons gaan bly. Die kamers is ruim en het alles wat jy benodig. Die yskassie het baie handig te pas gekom. Ons het gehou van die feit dat jy op 'n strokie 'n paar voorkeure of afkeure kon kies vir ontbyt. Al die personeel is netjies en vriendelik. Ek was veral super beïndruk nadat ons vertrek het en so 3 minute later 'n oproep ontvang! Dit was Zelda wat laat weet het 'n skoonmaker het my man se trouring op die wasbak gekry! Hy was so verlig dat hy die werkertjie 'n dankie-fooi gegee het. Ons sien julle beslis weer volgende jaar!

Gemaklik, veilig en behulpsaam.

Die gastehuis is baie tegemoetkomend. Ons wou die volgende oggend baie vroeg ry, en hulle het vir ons kospakkies ingepak om saam te neem, omdat ons nie ontbyt sou eet daar nie. Parkering is veilig, en ons het ons eie hek afstandbeheer gekry en kon kom en gaan soos ons wou! Sal beslis weer daar oornag.

Die gastehuis is pragtig en die die feit dat dit 'n Historiese Landmerk is, maak dit baie spesiaal. Die diens was uitmuntend en die kamer goed ingerig.

Aanbeveelbaar!

Baie beslis aanbeveelbaar. As daar dalk net iets kort is dit 'n klein kroegie wat koue bier/koeldrank kan bedien na 'n snikhete dag op die pad en in Kimberley.

Cecil John Rhodes Guest House's response

Baie dankie vir die positiewe terugvoer. Ons het wel 'n dranklisensie en yskoue drankies is definitief beskikbaar. Ja nee, Kimberley is nie 'n plek waar mens sonder iets koud sal oorleef nie. Ons hoop om u weer by die gastehuis te ontvang en dan sal ons seker maak dat u beter ingelig is oor alles wat ons bied.

Pragtige huis, skoon, netjies, gasvrou puik, tuin wonderlik om in te sit.

Dis 'n pragtige huis, skoon en netjies - al is dit oud en uit 'n ander era, slaap mens lekker. Ons gasvrou (Joanie) was puik, vriendelik en gasvry. Heelike ontbyt bedien. Die tuin met al die voëltjies, water 'features' en koelte op 'n warm dag baie welkom, en jy kan lekker met 'n boek ontspan. Die enigste ding wat 'n bietjie hinder, is die blok woonstelle langsaan. Daar was kindertjies wat skree-huil, wasgoed op balkone, ens. en ongelukkig doen dit so 'n bietjie afbreek aan hierdie wonderlike huis. 'n Mens wens eintlik jy kon die huis optel en skuif. Steeds sal ek vir familie of vriende wat op 'n eennagstop is, voorstel om hier te bly.

Lovely, friendly welcome

We unfortunately found our room to not have been cleaned properly on our arrival with crumbs and a small chicken bone on the floor but when this was pointed out to the staff, they were quick to apologize and the room was cleaned. Also we found the breakfast to be a little strange as it included a crumbed chicken with bacon and eggs. Otherwise, a good stay.
