Where we are
The Solomon Edwardian Guest House is located in a quiet part of Kimberley, the capital city of South Africa's Northern Cape province. Nestled between the historic suburbs of Beaconsfield, Herlear, Klisserville and Belgravia, The Solomon lies halfway between Kimberley's historic "Big Hole" and "Du Toitspan" diamond mines.
Just two kilometers from the city centre, The Solomon is a stone's throw from the municipal boundary stone used by Cecil John Rhodes to mount his horse after a refreshing pint at The Halfway House. The McGregor Museum, used by Rhodes as his headquarters during the Anglo-Boer War, is a short walk away. The restaurant at The Half is within easy walking distance.
