False Advertising
Sharita van der Westhuizen, South Africa - 21 June 2015
We are definitely very disappointed for choosing Carrington Lodge. It looks nothing like the website, and it's definitely not tranquil.
This is a terrible place to stay.
Reception has no personality, we don't know if they served breakfast or dinner? 
So many broken items in the room.
It's next to a busy road, couldn't get sleep, and the light comes in through the curtains, couldn't leave the aircon on as it sounds like it's on it's last legs. When taking a bath, the cold wind comes in at the window that doesn't close properly.
Then the next morning they drill and grind outside when you still trying to get some sleep.
Then when you leave, again no personality.

Excellent place and staff
Abhijit Dabade, South Africa - 07 April 2015
This hotel was large enough to handle all of our needs. The front desk service was excellent. The daily breakfast was served until 9:30am so we never felt rushed in the morning. Loved the room and the amenities.
The Hotel location is central so easy to access all corners of Kimberly. 
Special Thanks to Julia for  wonderful breakfast service and over all information about the city and places to visit.
Will surely recommend this hotel.

Awesome stay!!! Thank you.
Gordon Robertson, South Africa - 04 April 2014
An enjoyable overnight stay in a comfortable room with antique oak furniture. I would have liked to enjoy a beer at the bar and dinner, but due to other arrangements I'll have to leave that for next time.
Willie Kemp, South Africa - 17 January 2014
Excellent accommodation. Friendly and warm welcome.
Lee Jardine, South Africa - 02 January 2014
Clean, neat, professional!
The rooms were nice
Carina Kleyn, South Africa - 10 September 2013
The rooms were nice it was just the service of the lady we felt like intruders, not very friendly
All that you need.
Quentin Wessels, Botswana - 28 March 2013
We were pleasantly surprised. Although the premises and rooms are a bit old fashioned, you have everything you need. The family room was spacious, enough TV channels to keep you entertained, separate toilet with basin, big green lawn to relax and let the kids run wild, secure parking, nice little bar and close to the diamond junction mall. Thanx to Bryan for the hospitality. I recommend this lodge.
Pleasurable and quiet
George A Isaacs, South Africa - 11 March 2013
Carrington Lodge has a more vintage style with wooden floors, antique furniture and quiet ambience that is soothing to the weary traveller. The staff is friendly and booking in is a breeze. It is conveniently situated on the way to the airport and nearby Malls. Highly recommended for those travellers who want peace and quiet and is not set on luxury 5 star accommodation. Very affordable.
Excellent place
Harold Wilson - 27 February 2013
This is an excellent place to stay. The accommodation is well appointed, the environment inside and outside lends to relaxation and is spacious, the staff more than helpful and the food excellent.The proximity to the town centre and the main route to the north also helps.
Homely welcome at Carrington Lodge

Me and my family wish to say thank you to the staff. We had a wonderful stay at your lodge, the quick and the friendly response you made in assistance made us feel more comfortable and safe. Thank you once again and be blessed.
Cosy at Carrington
Frans van der Merwe, South Africa - 07 January 2013
We only experienced Carrington Lodge for one night but the comfortable bed, the excellent facilities (spotlessly clean) as well as the nice breakfast were first class. We were always looking for a nice stay-over on our way back to Gauteng and I think we found it!
Hester Landsberg, South Africa - 31 December 2012
Upon arrival at The Carrington Lodge we had a pleasant reception. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The friendlyness and service at all times was great. Thank you.
Jean Von Loggenburg, South Africa - 30 December 2012
We stayed in a family room which had new, clean linen,well furnished and very clean. Carrington Lodge is conveniently situated to the "Big Hole", restaurants and shops. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our stay in Kimberley was most enjoyable and we can highly recommend Carrington Lodge.

Thavish Vitharana, Botswana - 21 November 2011
The stay was great. Julia was very helpful and the location is great too. Everything you need is just around the corner. I would recommend the place to anyone.
Tracey Hudson, South Africa - 27 June 2010
Very helpful and friendly. We were warm and it was a great place as we could heat up our dinner in the room and did not have to go out. For breakfast the owner was willing to cook whatever eggs we wanted and the kids loved it and felt spoilt. Would definitely come again.
Clare Van Daele, South Africa - 06 September 2009
Ruth was friendly and helpful and our room was spacious and comfortably furnished. We would be happy to recommend it to our friends.
Very good
Hermann Schilt, Netherlands - 30 January 2008
We where lucky to find that our booked room was occupied so they moved us to an upgrade room the honeymoon suite. Who can complain? It was very romantic and we enjoyed staying here. Thanks a lot you for enjoying us so much!
