I stayed here for a week and it was fabulous. Rooms are clean and spacious. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a Ocean basket and the Half has its own restuarant / bar, Annebelle's. I had there famous pizza which was delicious. Would definitly stay over next time. Just one thing: Pack in your own hairdryer

I did not stay at the hotel which not only looked real old charming style but was charming and when I got back I will definitely stay there. The restaurant was as stylish as the hotel, excellent food, very friendly staff and a great atmosphere. A very nice place to be and relax

We came here for lunch and it was absolutely fabulous. They had a lunch special, surf and turf, at 69 rand each and all four of us ordered it. The service was excellent and it's a lovely, lively atmosphere.

On a business trip I always try to stay at the Halfway House (because it was halfway between the mines and the shanties that later became known as Kimberley). I spent my last three years of school in Kimberley and my family still stays here so I have seen bars come and go but the Half (what the locals call...

Not only the Hotel but also restaurant. Cool place sited on Kimberley. Great meat dishes, local beers. Very easy to find, lovely staff and costumers. Enjoy the local food and wine, and take a cab to go back and forth from your hotel. Recommended

I have always loved this place, but the division of the outside part of the hotel to a fish restaurant is a bit disappointing. A must to visit when visiting Kimberley. Food is good and there is always a trustworthy car guard. I am not sure if one will still get served outside in your car as was in the...

Thank you for your review. Adding Ocean Basket to the property has allowed a more diverse restaurant offering to our guests. You are correct in this was historically a drive-in pub, however, given the new laws, this is no longer possible. We look forward to welcoming you here again soon. We truly appreciate your patronage.

Great place to stay . Accommodation was very clean & the food was excellent. The staff were very helpful & informative. If I'm ever in Kimberley again I would definitely stay here. Full dstv was a great plus & a lovely pool (but not for the winter time lol)

Well, this is not about the hotel itself, but, Ocean Basket has moved, and is now situated in the section were the Hotel's Pub&Restaurant used to be. The food was beautiful, really enjoyed it... However that being said and done... Sometimes the waiting period from the time that you have ordered to when you receive your food is way to...

I don't know about the hotel, but this is a review of the pub. What a find! I went for a quiet beer and a meal and was overwhelmingly surprised. It's old school with a brilliant atmosphere. But what did it for me was the food. Really outstanding. Will definitely go again on next visit to Kimberley.

The restaurant was recommended by our guest house owner and we had no regrets. We had the ribs which were more than filling for 2 people, whilst waiting for the food we had a chat with the locals and we sensed a great community vibe there. The food was delicious with large portions!
