“Best B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Although this was our first time in a B&B we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Charlottetown. Rooms were incredible and the hosts catered to our every need. The breakfast, which came with the room was a delightful 3 course meal that made an excellent stay, exceptional. Will unquestionably return.

In September we had the experience of biking the Confederation Trail from 'tip-to-tip' of the island.
Our first two nights and our seventh night were spent at the Cranford Inn....this place was like home.
Vicky and Martha were wonderful hosts; breakfasts were great and every detail has been attended to.
The whole place was beyond clean and comfortable and it felt like we were staying with friends.
This B&B is number-one ranked and rightfully so...you have to experience it.
Thanks V & M for a memorable visit.
Ciao, till next time.
Mary and Owen from Saskatoon

A wonderful inn,excellent standards of cleanliness throughout. Tastefully decorated to an exceptional standard. The innkeepers Martha and Vicky are great hosts, so kind and caring and ensured we had everything to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Our room Sandstone was spacious with a patio overlooking the garden, a walkin wardrobe and a good size bathroom. We enjoyed a superb gourmet breakfast each morning with homemade muffins and a hot entree each day. Fresh goodies and hot drinks were available throughout the day with a great Expresso machine for guests to use. Lots of opportunities to rest and relax on the patios with lovely outside seating areas and a pretty garden. We left very early one morning to catch our flight back to Boston fruit and muffins were left in the refrigerator for us. Such a kind and considerate thought by the innkeepers. Put this Inn on your list, location is great with a short walk to all Charlottetown has to offer including old historic buildings, a wonderful park , harbour and simply some of the best fish restraunts to eat the locally caught lobster .

Room Tip: I peeped into any room that was available all look great we stayed in Sandstone which was wonderful

This was our second stay at the Inn, and wouldn't hesitate to stay again. In fact, the Inn has become a destination itself, not just place to stay. Love being able to park and walk downtown, and come "home" to the Inn throughout the day. Impeccably clean, wonderful food, and knowledgeable hosts. We have recommended to friends with no regrets, as they have also enjoyed it and made return visits as well!

We loved staying at The Cranford Inn, and we thoroughly enjoyed the company of Vicky and Martha.

We originally booked for three nights but managed to sneak in one more before our itinerary called us away. We found the rooms really to our taste and the facilites were excellent - and then there were the breakfasts and the muffins to take away if we couldn't manage them at breakfast.

The location was spot on to explore the town and wider area, and we would certainly visit again on a future trip.

Room Tip: I don't think you could chose a bad room.

My wife and I loved this place! We stayed at this B&B for one night in August and had a very pleasant and relaxing stay. The location, food and room were absolutely perfect. Martha and Vicki were excellent hosts who provided ample information about the area, a fantastic breakfast and a welcoming atmosphere. We would recommend this place to anyone visiting Charlottetown.

My husband and I stayed at the Cranford Inn two weeks ago and haven't stopped talking about it. Beautiful inn that is centrally located - you can walk to any of the sights in Charlottetown. Nicely appointed rooms that are quite spacious and very clean. The breakfasts were fantastic!Each morning, we started our day off with a hearty, homemade breakfast. Awesome food! After breakfast, we would take our coffees out to the back porch and relax in their beautiful garden.

The best part though is the unbelievable hospitality, thanks to innkeepers Vicki and Martha. From the moment we arrived, we felt so welcome. They gave us great tips for sightseeing and always had huge smiles on their faces.

I can't say enough good things about the Cranford Inn. We will definitely return and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone staying in Charlottetown. Thanks again Vicki and Martha for a wonderful stay!

CranfordInn, Owner at The Cranford Inn, responded to this review, September 12, 2012
Thanks for your generous comments regarding your stay at the Cranford. Certainly gave us a great boost to hear you were still thinking of our Inn well after your stay. I am glad you mentioned the Garden. We sometimes take it for granted but our guests like you folks really enjoy the loungers and great deck space overlooking the large perenial gardens. Hopefully you will get a chance to come back to the Island and the Cranford soon.
