Cranberry Cottage & Restaurant
Ranked #1 of 15 Ladybrand B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 September 2011

The grounds of the compound are special, cool and inviting with flowers and ducks and lovely pools to sit by. Somehow we lucked out and got the honeymooner's room, upstairs with a balcony, quite spacious and nicely decorated. We also had a comfortable couch and fireplace which we used, as it was cool at night (no heat). Stairs up to the room were a bit of a challenge and morning noise of dogs and chickens a bit annoying. Meals were tasty but very SLOW to arrive to the table. Servers were friendly and staff generally very nice. Unfortunately couldn't explore the little town of Ladybrand which looked charming but was deemed unsafe for us.

Room Tip: Upstairs, although more difficult to drag luggage up, gave a nice view of flowering trees and birds.

Although most guests are short term, my husband and I have been staying here at Cranberry Cottage since the end of May (it's now mid-June). I would have to say that the physical place and its staff are all excellent! Check Cranberry Cottage home page for photos, but they have lovely gardens with duck and koi ponds sprinkled here and there. We're here in off season, and are here as longer-term guests (husband is working in Lesotho, about 20km away) and have been treated like friends from day one. With the room comes a complementary breakfast, always large and delicious. Also, the pub/restaurant attacted to the main building serves delicious and wonderfully served food. There is Internet access for purchase-most of the time reliable, but not always. CC is also within two or three blocks to the small downtown area, so you can purchasse food or drinks or whatever. Secure-feeling, surrounded by gated areas which may or may not be necessary, but is the style here. Really, this is a great place!
