“Another excellent experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

Based on previous positive experiences, we again chose the Cranford for a weekend stay in Charlottetown. Once again Martha & Vicki didn't disappoint. It is so welcoming and so cosy, which is especially appreciated on a cold weekend in Feb. Our room was perfect, our breakfasts were superb and Martha & Vicki are very gracious hosts. We also really enjoy the central location, easy walking to restaurants and attractions. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: The Emerald room has comfortable chairs (with footstools) and good lighting for reading, plus a love...

What can you say about return guests! We love to have you back. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We were impressed by the many things you were engaged in during the winter months, reminding us of the variety of activities one can enjoy during the winter on PEI.
We appreciate the mention of the location and agree being central and walking distance to restaurants and cultural attractions is an asset. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review.

As islanders we were looking for an overnight accomodation to belatedly celebrate our wedding anniversary and chose the Cranford Inn.
The welcoming tasteful decor, beautiful furnishing and deluxe accomodations made for a superb stay. We felt truly pampered in the Sandstone Room
The location, innkeepers and service couldn't have been better and breakfast was awesome!

Thank you so much Vicky and Martha!

Vicki and Martha have created an outstanding experience for travelers at the beautiful Cranford Inn. Our rooms were outstanding--comfortable beds, exquisite linens and in room fireplaces offered the feeling of elegance and of being pampered. The breakfast menus were thoughtfully planned and the food and presentation worthy of any 5-star facility. We appreciated that all food was homemade or "Island' made; fresh baked muffins every morning were above and beyond our expectations!

The Inn is situated within minutes of shopping, restaurants and sites of historical relevance. Our hosts were friendly, caring and respectful. We left feeling we had a 10 out of 10 experience at the Cranford Inn and made new friends. We are looking forward to our next visit!

My daughter and I recently enjoyed a get away to the Cranford Inn, and it was an exceptional stay. From the time we walked through the door until our departure, Martha and Vicki looked after every detail to ensure we had a relaxing and enjoyable visit. That attention to detail really impressed me and is what sets the Cranford Inn apart: the fireplace was lit and welcoming when we walked into our room, the most delicious hot chocolate was served with breakfast, and maps and directions for our outings were prepared while we ate. The Cranford Inn is the perfect balance between comfort and sophistication, and the inn-keepers are truly the most welcoming and accommodating people. The location is ideal - it is within walking distance to the waterfront and downtown. This will be my first choice for accommodations for future trips to PEI.

I recently enjoyed a "girls night" at the Cranford Inn. We were fortunate enough to be invited to a reception at the Inn and decided it would be nice to stay the night...what an excellent idea that turned out to be! Vicky and Martha hosted a fabulous reception with decadent hors d'oeuvres and sweets. The whole Inn is beautifully decorated for Christmas...what a lovely venue for a Christmas party! We were then able to lounge around in our comfy clothes in the both the sitting area and our guest suite. Then to be able to get up and have a delicious breakfast served to us...I think we'll have to do this more often! The best part was the hospitality, thank you Vicky and Martha, you already feel like old friends. Merry Christmas, Kelly

We chose the Cranford Inn for a quiet getaway to celebrate our anniversary based on a very favourable write-up in a well know travel magazine. It was an excellent choice. Our room, The Sandstone, was clean, well equiped and spacious. The decor was very classy with quality furnishings and fixtures.The electric fireplace on a stormy evening added to both the comfort level and the ambiance. Martha was kind enough to make us a dinner reservation at very nice restaurant within walking distance. Martha and Vicky were warm, friendly and gracious and served a healthy and delicious breakfast in the lovely diningroom. Too bad we didn't hear Vicky play the wonderful baby grand in their beautifully furnished sitting room. Maybe next time, as we would definitely stay here again and would be happy to recommend it to to those looking for more than just a hotel room.
