We had been booked to stay at another venue just outside Kimberley and were very disappointed and decided to move after just one night. Pat very kindly juggled bookings and we we spent 11 nights at 5 Acres. And Pietra took excellent care of us. Our rooms were small but quite adequate and comfortable. We loved the gardens and bird...

The room was very comfortable and spacious and had a great bed. The breakfast was great - on time and more than enough to eat. The problems were the very noisy geyser and the shower that almost overflowed because it was blocked.

Room One is definitely not worth a four star rating. Carpet has marks, bathroom door closes with difficulty is dirty and old. Room is dated, as are tiles in bathroom. Bedding seemed to be clean. Other rooms seemed to be up to the rating. The garden is really beautiful. Pity we can't say the same for room number one. Room... More

This wonderful guest house was a great place to spend a few nights whilst visiting friends and family. The pictures on Trip Advisor are very outdated, so do yourself a favour and look at the guest house's web page for a more up to date overview of this little piece of paradise in the Northern Cape. The rooms are very... More

Warm reception, good meals, comfortable rooms. Right on a major route and easy to locate on GPS maps. Also prepared for load-shedding. The garden is a relaxing delight, with birds, water-features and lots of trees.

I had a wonderful stay at Five Acres Guesthouse in Kimberley and was warmly welcomed by the hosts. The establishment is situated in a tranquil environment, with manicured lawns as well as an abundance of bird life. Despite me getting lost and arriving late the evening , nothing was too much trouble for the hosts, who were concerned about my... More

This was an over-night stop, but would make a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area or just relax between activities. Easy to find, a lovely setting, plenty of privacy, comfortable accommodation, and helpful, friendly and informative hosts. Not all units are kitted out the same way, so make your requirements known when booking. Would definitely stay here... More

The rooms are housed 2 together, surrounding a large garden with trees and a large avery. Although we booked it as a self-catering unit, the rooms only had a microwave and limited cutlery and utensils. The living area furniture was old and worn, and I do not think it would meet 4* grading any more. However, the property is near... More
