Oleander Guest House is a glorious 100 year old Edwardian house located centrally within the historic suburb of Belgravia in Kimberley. The house has a beautiful garden with our trademark oleander tree, speculated as being the largest oleander tree in South Africa, graciously positioned in the front garden. The old house possesses a specific warmth and charm and has been declared a national heritage building to preserve the beautiful historic character of Kimberley. The house has been carefully renovated over many years to ensure that the true quality of this gracious house contributes to an unforgettable experience for our visiting guests. We invite you to come and experience the friendly, peaceful and relaxed atmosphere of this remarkable guest house where Oleander was awarded the prestigious 2015 & 2017 Lilizela Tourism Awards for the National winner in the five star Guest House category!
