What a fabulous place! My husband and I went to see the sights of Kimberley as part of our road trip and arrived on our anniversary. In our room was a bottle of bubbles, a box of Lindt chocolates and a lovely note. What a start to a fabulous stay! We were in room number 1 which is just inside the front door. It is air conditioned which is very pleasing as it was very hot. The room is large with a comprehensive dressing room and large bathroom. So beautifully and thoughtfully appointed. Lovely crisp linen, fluffy towels and best of all, a Nespresso-like coffee machine for an early cuppa and a rusk. The service is impeccable and the food excellent. Pool towels are in the room and the pool is clean and substantial. There are very comfortable long chairs and shaded seating area too. The African Grey provides the entertainment! The lodge is located in a lovely street from which you can walk to the Long Cecil war .emorial and McGregor Museum, and is central to other attractions. We had a superb stay and will be back!

What wonderful overnight stop at this 5 star guest house in Kimberley. From the warm and welcoming staff to the lovely grounds with the huge oleander in the carpark to the excellent and comfortable room we loved every minute of our stay. Slightly disappointing was the dinner as my chicken dish was on the dry side and the panna cotta too much gelatine which made it stodgy. The breakfast of eggs benedict with smoked salmon, however, was delicious. We will definitely go there again.

Stayed here 2 nights. Our room included a small sitting room. The pool water was cold but welcome in the heat! Everything functioned well. We feltvery safe there. Carel in particular was extremely efficient. We also ate our evening meals there which were excellent. Great wine choice.

Lovely stay over on our way back to Gauteng. Rooms were neat, clean and comfortable with a view of the swimming pool area. Breakfast was really good with a good variety to select from. Old house that has been beautifully restored with wooden floors. Appreciated the automatic upgrade to a better room.

We were warmly welcomed on arrival & our friends our friends who needed a plug point for their portable freezer were assisted promptly. Our rooms were well appointed & comfortable. Lovely areas around the pool to rest, chat & enjoy a drink. The dinner & breakfast were delicious.

Travelling from Gauteng to Western Cape we decided to travel the country route and booked in at Oleander Guest House in Kimberley. What a find! Literally 5 star accommodation and a restaurant with gourmet food. The staff were all welcoming and made sure our stay lived up to the 5 star status. We will definitely stay at Oleander again next time we’re in Kimberley.

We had a very comfortable stay at Oleander Guest house . Room was clean and spacious with everything we needed . Guest house is in a safe street with secure parking . Restaurant was lovely - great food and service . It was a bonus not having to find somewhere to eat each night . Good wine selection as well . Highly recommend Oleander to those travelling to Kimberley .
