I expect the hotel to be of the same standard as the Durban and cape Town Garden Court.
the room I occupied was not as peaceful as I expected. There was noise coming from a generator of some kind and that disturbed the tranquility I expected

Dear Mr Sindisiwe, thank you very much for the valuable feedback on your stay with us.
We greatly value our guest's stay experience and am dissapointed that this was not the case
with your stay at GC Kimberley. We will most certainly look into the noise emanating from our
plant area and hope to welcome you back to Kimberley.

Warm regards
Trevor

We arrived in the evening, tired from a long drive only to be welcomed by bugs on our bed!

Despite being a non-smoking room, the room was smelling of old cigarette smoke. The reception refused to move us to another room and rather "offered" to have the room refreshed...pathetic.

The aircon was extremely noisy and disturbed our sleep.

Breakfast was ok but there was confusion about the availability of halaal food. Waiter said "no" but egg chef said "yes" Didn't know who to trust!

We wanted an iron to iron our clothes. The first one sent leaked water. Asked for a replacement but then the second leaked as well. When I called housekeeping the lady said that there was a special way to put water in...come on this is not rocket science!!! When we asked the cleaner came she admitted all the irons leaked as guests drop them all the time.

Often there was only one person at reception. I had to wait in a queue to be helped to checkout.

Dear Imraan, Thank you very much for the reveiw and valuable comments on your
stay with us. Please accept my sincere apology for everything that went wrong with your stay.
This is definitely not the stay experience that we wanted you to have and I shall look into every point you've raised and will address these with our team. Unfortunately our breakfast delivery is not Halaal and we try to seperate as much on the buffet as possible, however our staff should be flexible to a request.

Once again my sincere apology for your poor stay experience and hope this does not put you off Kimberley.
Warm regards

My family and me recently had a pleasant surprise at the attitude and service levels from managment and all levels of staff at this hotel. All the staff are friendly, helpfull and courtious.
We were really impressed by the "well above normal" levels of service also from Trevor the manager on duty.

Everthing else is very good, I don't know if all the rooms are the same inside but i think the rooms need colour they look very depressing.Or change the colour of the bedding. Please I loved the stay it was only the depressing colours in the room.
