Positives:
1. The staff are friendly
2. rooms were neat, clean and I thought cozy.
Negatives:
1. Old TV with just SABC 1,2,3 and e-tv (Gasps)
2. Wooden floor next to hallway (Room 110), if someone walked past the room it felt like someone walking inside the room (yes its that bad).
3. Parking arrangements, it is behind the hotel but you do not have a remote and the gate must be opened manually by the porter. Sooooo every time you come back to the hotel, first stop infront of the hotel, run in and ask someone to open then drive around the building and park.
4. Breakfast consisted of toast, mince, fried eggs (pre cooked, no choice) and corn and some canned fruit and yogurt. I ate breakfast at 7:30 am, alone and 3 staff members watching me.
5. almost centre of town but it alost feels like its bordering the industrial area, no restaurants in immediate area.
crux, will I stay there again? I doubt it.

Room Tip: Room 110 is a no-no. its on the corner and you can hear every footstep as it passes the room, terrible!

We tried to stay at the Savoy on Saturday th 15th of December 2012. On arrival we asked the two ladies at the front desk if the hotel was quite as we just had a bad experience the previous night with a noisy hotel. They informed us that it was and so we booked in for our stay. The room was not bad, although everything is a little run down, everything was clean. We went out for the night and upon our arrival at our room (22h30) we heard shouting, screaming, swearing and very loud music coming from the outside. We went to the person on duty and asked if we could be moved to another room as we would not be able to sleep with the noise. They were only willing to give us a room further down the hall on the same side, which did nothing for the noise. We eventually booked out of the hotel at 23h30 after phoning around for another place to stay. Upon our return to the hotel the next morning to enquire about getting some of our money back (our stay was B&B), they heard our complaint about the noisiness and just then informed us that there is two night clubs on either side of the hotel. They were not willing to refund us. ( From the person who opened and closed the gate for us the previous night, we heard that the noise only stopped at 3h30 the Sunday morning!)

My wife and I stayed in your hotel on Tuesday the 10th of July and found it -COLD as there was no heating,The dining room was empty and freezing.The food was VERY limited and COLD.
We tried to order a beer with dinner but was informed that as the bar was under reconstruction you had no beer.Strange as your brochure claims to have two bars one with large screen tv!
The area around the hotel is seedy and run down just like the hotel.The parking arrangements are primitive and not user friendly.
Your staff are plesant but untrained and the so called managerment could not even produce a tourist map of kimberly.
The whole experience will ensure we never visit Kimberly again.

Room Tip: under no circumstances stay at this hotel

We stayed at the Savoy over 20 years ago and went back for a nostalgic look with the plan to have coffee and cake. The hotel was run down. The carpet in the entrance gall was threadbare, the windows from the outside were rusty and the whole area was run down.

We asked at reception if we could have a coffee and were told to go through to the dining room. Numerous staff passed us but no one asked if they could help us. Thus included someone who looked like the duty manager. After 15 minutes waiting, we left and had coffee elsewhere.

I am pleased that we didn't book to stay here. We would have been very disappointed.

Thanks for letting us know that you had fond memories of the Savoy Hotel.
The area around Savoy Hotel has changed a lot, and unfortunately the Hotel has changed with it.
Some changes are already in progress: the carpet in the upper floors has been replaced recently and just the ground floor has not been done yet. The curtains, staff uniform and some furniture will change soon.
We would have loved to deliver the service that Savoy in known for and ask you to please accept our apologies.

We took our family to the Savoy Hotel Kimberley and had a great time. The hotel has an historic ambiance, as it is more than 100 years old. The staff was friendly, helpful and gave advise on the sights of the city. They could explore town on their own, as everything is in walking distance. The town hall is just down the road.
The room was spacious and the bath and shower. Good value for money.
Will come back again.
