Really enjoyed our night at Cranberry. Excellent accommodation...very good value: R475 pp got us a fully equipped, beautifully furnished self-catering unit with 2 tvs and a spa bath & breakfast, which was delicious. We stayed on a Sunday night so the bar and restaurant were closed which made it nice and quiet. Receptionist was very helpful in recommending another place... More

The reason for my awarding Cranberry Cottage an average rating; Food & Hospitality - Above average Rooms - Poor , far too noisy in prefab bird rooms, people smoking on balconies, smoke enters room if sliding door open

I recently stated Cranbury cottage on a business trip that lasted two nights. Prior to that I've stayed in three other locations in South Africa and Swaziland on my extended business trip.

I took a 12 man film crew to Cranberry cottage and we were pleasantly surprised! Film crews are very spoilt in all their luxuries and are very difficult to please. They were all over the moon with the accommodation and service we received and Cranberry cottage. Thanks to Sherry-Lee that hosted us and made our two nights there very pleasant.

The accommodation was excellent. The room was well appointed and tasteful. The staff were very friendly and helped me with enquiries in the area as the information centre was closed. The breakfasts were substantial and the food of a good quality

It is this place that is our yardstick on how all guesthouses will be judged in the future. The setting is like being transported to another place, a very good place. The accommodation... More
