“Really Enjoyed this B&B”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

We spent 4 nights here at the end of May. We stayed in the Sandstone room which had a very comfortable king-size bed, lovely furnishings and windows and access to a deck overlooking the beautiful gardens. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and we never set foot on the deck. The bathroom was immaculate and kept that way throughout our stay. I was a little nervous to see that the enclosure for the shower did not extend the full length of the tub ( I did not want to get water all over the bathroom floor) but it was not a problem at all.
The location was perfect as we prefer to walk to restaurants, etc. whenever we can. Although the Cranford is right in the middle of town it was quiet and relaxing.
Breakfast times are 8 and 9AM and you choose upon arrival. I did want to sleep in a little later one morning but could not be accommodated at the later time. Just as well as an early start gave us more time to sight see.
Breakfasts were wonderful with fresh fruit and home made muffins to start followed by a different entree each day. My dislike for fish was graciously accommodated and replaced with a delicious mini quiche. Thank you Vicki and Martha!
We felt totally comfortable and at home here and hope to get back some day.

We decided ( insanely ) to make the entire overnight drive from Ottawa to Charlottetown...two drivers on a mission to escape to the start of our vacation. We pulled wearily into Charlottetown at 8:45 am and hit TripAdvisor for a recommendation and selected the Cranford. Yes - it was early, far before the 3 pm check-in but we wanted a horizontal surface and a hot shower so we parked out front and knocked and hoped for a break...and we were rewarded. Welcomed in, shown a selection of beautiful and well appointed rooms that felt like home. We were checked in and sleeping inside 30 minutes. A great stay, lovely property and fantastic breakfast.. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

A nice little gem in Charlottetown, the Cranford Inn is a very affordable Inn/B&B within easy walking distance of everything in historic/downtown Charlottetown. Very nice to be able to park the car, check in, and not have to start the car again until check out a couple of days later. The rooms were very nice and clean. The breakfast provided each morning was very well done. A good value, and a much better place to stay than a chain hotel. Staff were extremely helpful and polite. Would recommend and stay here again.

We had such a great experience in 2011 at this inviting B&B that we decided to return there again for a week-end get away ....and it felt like we were returning "home"! We were warmly greeted by Martha and Vicki, who remembered us...what a nice feeling! Homemade cookies and a cup of tea as we settled in...just like home!
They had several suggestions for dining, which we appreciated, and we tried one of their recommendations and thoroughly enjoyed a unique experience at Terre Rouge.
We enjoy the Sandstone Room with the view of the large perennial gardens and the spacious deck .The enormous,tasty home-cooked breakfasts are the perfect start to a day. Couldn't ask for better hospitality anywhere and it is so apparent why they are rated as the top B&B in the city and one of the top in Canada!
Looking forwards to returning!
Anne and Paul

We LOVED the Cranford Inn! It is beautifully decorated, the rooms are so clean and comfortable, the breakfasts are amazing, the location is perfect for walking around downtown, and Martha and Vicky are very kind, genuine people with endless patience and advice on making your visit to PEI a good one. I'm amazed at the great value of this B&B, which I would return to without hesitation any time. As we left, we were (only half-) joking about whether we might just be able to move in permanently!

If you search for a nice & chic B&B with kind hosts, where you could relax, eat well and visit the beautiful & peaceful city of Charlottetown don't waist your time searching anymore!: This is your place!
Vicki & Martha are just amazing...they were lovely with us and our little 7 months old daughter.
And they are so helpful about things to do in PEI or finding a nice place for dinning.
I certainly recommend this great B&B to anyone who visit Charlottetown and I wish I could go back to Vicki & Martha's home soon ! :)
Our room (Topaz room) with a queen bed was elegant and large enough for our baby crib and our many bags and luggage..

Vicki and Martha are the best hostesses in PEI. Wonderful and comfortable decor. Very accommodating. We have stayed here 3 times and won't stay anywhere else in Charlottetown. Marvellous breakfasts. We have stayed in every room and they are all fantastic.
