Comfortable accommodation in a convenient location for access to city centre and sights such as the 'Big Hole'. Not owner operated at time of stay and run by staff, Anna was especially friendly & helpful. Mario's restaurant across the road is very good.

We felt very welcome. Extremely comfortable rooms with aircon & en-suite bathrooms. Lovely setting. Great host. Lovely & peaceful garden. Close to shops, Spur, Big Hole, etc. Highly recommended.

My stay at CJRGH was most enjoyable. It’s a nice clean establishment and the staff is very helpful, 5 star for them. The price is reasonable. What are lacking though are cool drinks or something to drink during the day (it don't need to be free) and Internet access. In today’s world we need information and I really missed the Internet to provide me with “things to do” during my stay in Kimberley.
