I recently visited cranberry for a wedding. I made my booking through booking.com. Upon arrival I was escorted to my room. I was shocked as this was not at all what I expected. The room was not what I asked for, also it looked nothing like the photos show to me. The lady at reception was kind enough to move... More

Friendly staff welcomed us to a very average room, which looks a bit tired but is clean and comfortable. The room was just next to the staff entrance to kitchens, so it is noisy. Coffee shop, bar and restaurant on premises are a big plus for travelers. The staff were very friendly and willing. Meals in restaurant were good and... More

I recently stayed at Cranberry Cottage while on business in the area. What a lovely guest house. The place is centrally located, well appointed and offers a lovely setting. My room was very spacious and offered a shower, as well as a bath. The room also had an air-conditioner, television and a small kitchen. I was pleasantly surprised when I... More

Our family of four had been intending to spend a few days at Semonkong Lodge in Lesotho but had to turn back about 20km before we got there because the road up and over one of the mountain passes was completely impassable - after an unusually heavy snowfall. We were grateful therefore that Cranberry Cottage was able to accommodate us... More

I always look forward to go to Maseru for business. It means I get to stay at Cranberry Cottage! I have reviewed this establishment before and I am glad to say it only improved on the previous experiences. The restaurant has excellent food and the bar area has chargers for cell phones and tablets. A great idea! No more asking... More

This was an excellent B&B. Loved the gardens and the room provided at Rosé. That was great to make a fire indoors to heat up the room. Just needed some cutlery and plates. We will certainly recommend this place to everyone....

Ladybrand is a lovely small town to switch off, reset and pop over to Lesotho. Cranberry cottage has all the lovely features and space. For a family of six the accommodation was comfortable and spacious in the family deluxe room. With a few tweaks like bins, cleaner kitchen, sharp knives and a lock on the front door, we could have...
