    Amazing that everything about your stay in Kimberley is negative… Maybe the problem lies with you and not the guesthouses. Especially if all the mentioned guesthouses are always fully booked

    • My aim is to give an honest view of the places I’ve stayed in. Here is a post on some accommodation I enjoyed in Kimberley: http://suitcasesandlattes.com/2014/02/17/surviving-kimberley-part-1-protea-hotel-victorian-guest-lodge/

      It is not cheap to stay in Kimberley and I think that due to the fact that people will always have transit stays there (stop-overs driving between CT & JHB), guesthouses take advantage of this. These places are not fully booked because they are nice – they are fully booked because people will tolerate almost anything during a transit stay. I was not in transit and needed decent accommodation which was hard to come by in Kimberley. I will be doing a post on my wonderful stay at Carter’s Rest Guest House so be sure to keep an eye out for that. – Rif
