The Cranford Inn
Ranked #5 of 44 Charlottetown B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 31, 2012

My husband & I went for his birthday. It was our first time at a Bed & Breakfast together and we loved how much we felt comfortable. It was beautiful and fun at the same time. We also felt it was very private and did not feel as though we were in someone elses house or space. We will deffinitly go back!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sand Stone room! Lots of windows and very comfortable!

The Cranford Inn wants to take this opportunity to thank all our reviewers for their positive generous and complimentary comments. Your kindness has resulted in the Inn being presented with a Trip Advisor's Traveler's Choice Award as the number 9 Bed and Breakfast in Canada. We received a lovely plaque and a letter from Trip Advisor which notes " your property belongs to a very exclusive group. This year less than 1% of all accommodation listed on Trip Advisor received this award." The owners and dedicated small staff wish to thank you, our valued guests for making this award possible. We look forward to providing you the same excellent service on your return visits.

Our search for an excellent and affordable accommodation in Charlottetown has ended: the Cranford Inn is the only place to stay when visiting Prince Edward Island's largest city!
Located on a quiet side street in the historic downtown district, the Cranford is just steps away from fine dining, shopping and nightly entertainment. On a recent "week-end get-away", my partner and I were able to leave the car parked at the inn and wander about the town with ease, enjoying the lively galleries, restaurants and pubs, interesting shops and beautiful architecture of the area.
The Cranford itself is beautifully appointed, and it is clear by the attention to detail and accessibility of the hostesses that guest comfort is top priority.
Having travelled extensively both for work and for pleasure, I can honesty write that the Cranford Inn is perfect for both types of travel. It proved to be an excellent experience for us, and I recommend it to anyone planning a visit to the Gentle Isle.

Room Tip: Every room is fantastic!

Unquestionably, a most impressive B&B. The accommodations were clean, well kept and showed evidence of pride of ownership. The breakfasts were delightful. Historic sites, harbour front, and restaurants were all within comfortable walking distance from The Cranford. What to say about our hostesses, Vicky and Martha... both were charming and attentive with a "just right" approach in meeting our needs, answering questions, and ensuring our stay was so memorable. We left feeling like we'd made a fine choice and if ever given the chance to return, we would be welcomed by two good friends. Thanks.

Our experience at this B & B was wonderful. The rooms were clean and beautiful and the breakfast was the "best". Both Martha and Vicky were so helpful and welcoming. Would love to come back to Charlottetown just to stay here. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

What a beautiful, spotlessly clean and delightful b&b in Charlottetown. From the moment I arrived I felt like I had a home away from home. I am a young single traveller and came ill with a bad cold during my 3 night stay. Vicky and Martha went out of their way to ensure I was comfortable and feeling better. The breakfasts are such a treat too! Superb 3 courses - you definitely won't need lunch! The all day coffee, freshly baked cookies and muffins are an added, welcome bonus. Beds are deliriously comfy, and the fireplace and deep bath in your room will be sure to keep you cosy and warm. Thanks Vicky and Mattha for a perfect stay. I'll be back!

Room Tip: I chose the Amethyst room - large, comfy and perfect for my stay.

Travelling with my 84 year old Mom and needed a 1st floor room. Martha & Vicky were the perfect hosts! The room was spotless, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Breakfasts were yummy! And so large, lunch wasn't needed! I would recommend this B&B to anyone heading for Charlottetown. So close to downtown; walking distance to everything. Hopefully will be able to visit again!
