Very elegant place, always clean and I appreciate the Doom spray that I could use to kill mosquitoes. The staff are welcoming and friendly and called me by name which made me feel at home. Will recommend to friends and family anytime

Traveling all over SA as I do for my accident investigation business, I rarely come across an establishment that inspires me to put pen to paper - sorry, fingers to keys. The accommodation was incredible for the price, I would happily have paid double for us and the two kids. What made our visit to Cranberry Cottage memorable was the... More

Little mix up when booking in and was not told about wi fi code. Staff very friendly, Room was awesome and I attended a function at the same establishment. The food was awesome and the service great - The Gardens are a real oasis. The Pool needs some attention though as looked half full.

Convenient to have a restaurant on site serving a big variety of dishes. Wine well priced. Great welcome and assistance with our bags. Secure parking under canopy. Rooms are old by spacious and have a large balcony. There are stairs to the rooms so not ideal for old people.

I stayed here with my wife and another couple on the penultimate night of a long tour from Cape Town, through the Eastern Cape, KZN and Lesotho before returning to Cape Town. Excellent reception (friendly, efficient and including porter service), a sense of safety and very friendly service in the dining area in (at least) 3 languages.
