“A diamond among base metals”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

The Chateau Kimberley is a diamond in an old lead/zinc mining town,

The ore has played out, but this head office of the former Cominco mine has been tastefully restored to a unique boutique hotel.

It has the attributes of a B&B. A cozy meeting/ reading / t.v. room and an ample continental breakfast. Priced as a B&B.

The hotel is spotlessly clean.

And whether you're retuning as a frequent guest or a first time visitor, you'll be welcomed as a friend.

Although it was previously a four seasons hotel, you may want to watch it's winter availability.

Enjoyed our stay. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Super clean everywhere, including our room. Good sleeps, quiet hotel and location even though close to downtown Kimberley. Smaller town friendly atmosphere, art gallery in hotel, neat wooden floors, bright and cheery breakfast area. Lots of fresh fruit for breakfast, could have had more yogurts. Wonderful hot chocolate/coffee and cookie hospitality table for evening. Reading and music room. Lots of paths for walking/hiking. Good location for bike riding. Bathroom good and clean. A/c worked, windows opened. Carpet clean but a bit dated. On the downside, WiFi very slow and no real working desk area (tv on desk). I think when I book again I will ask for a room with a working desk area as I think the hotel will be very accommodating. We checked out the previous night and were given muffins and apples for the road. Again, very lean hotel!

Room Tip: Any room would be good. If you have special requests just ask ahead to see if they are a possibility...

Wonderful place. Very friendly and helpful hosts/owners. Loved the lounge with afternoon cookies, coffee and lemon water for the hot days. The breakfast room was bright and cheerful. One morning we say two dear on the outdoor patio. I was given suggestions of things to see and places to eat. Within walking distance of the Platzl and a short drive to the ski hill. I would stay their again.

The hotel is located on a very quiet corner with access to several trails. It is a refuge for anyone who needs/likes peace and tranquility. You are welcomed into a gallery of art and warmth. The owner and her front desk staff are most gracious and helpful. Although I had not requested gluten free breakfast at my booking, Val was most accommodating... she even cooked a special organic gluten free oat mixture. We sat outside on the patio and it was lovely. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and spacious. There is a lovely lounge as well as tea, coffee and cookies for a snack during the afternoon. Very well thought out.
Although the reason for our two night stay was not for pleasure we felt that we had chosen the right setting. We highly recommend this well priced hotel and are looking forward to a return visit during different circumstances.
There is a great cafe just a few minutes walk away that is frequented by local serving snacks etc. during the day.

This little hidden gem is the place to stay if you are planning a trip to Kimberley or around Kimberley!
We were greeted by the owner ( Val ) upon arrival and felt so welcome and comfortable! The rooms are clean and a nice size. The hotel itself is very unique and makes you want to relax. Coffee and tea are always on , and a wonderful living room with fireplace to visit your friends in and relax . Breakfast offered in the morning was excellent too.
This is a place we will return to , as well as recommend to anyone heading to Kimberley.
Top notch and priced right! Thank you Val and Pat for the great service!

Room Tip: They do not have cribs or playpens so be sure to pack your own! But totally kid friendly otherwise.

Stayed at the Chateau Kimberley one night in late October. Admittedly a quiet time of the year so very quiet but there is something very unique about this hotel. The room was large, bed comfortable with all the comfort amenities. The personnel, including the owner were VERY welcoming & they lay on an excellent breakfast next morning. The Chateau is located very close to the 'downtown' area of Kimberley within walking distance of the Mozart restaurant which was also very good. All in all, a very enjoyable experience & the Chateau Kimberley is strongly recommended if you are through Kimberley
