This is our second time staying at Cranberry Cottage, we were altogether 72 guests, what a pelasure and joy, to stay there. All our needs were taken care of. The service is excellent, the staff handle complaints with care and are eager to help. A special thanks to Johan, Ricky and LeRoy, for looking after us so well.

We really enjoyed our stay at Cranberry Cottage. The rooms were clean. The staff very helpful and attentive. The directions to the hotel were easy to follow and well signposted. Meals were delicious. It was a bit noisy during the night. But all in all a very enjoyable stay.

We wanted to see the Ha- Koma Caves in Lesotho so decided to stay again at an old favorite, Cranberry Cottage. How great to find that they gave us one of the new selfcatering apartments. Brand new and super spacious, Still the same great restaurant though.

No door between toilette and bed room, hundred ducks make noise around the clock, in their "ponds" they breed mosquitos, worst quality in the restaurant since I am in RSA well done instead of medium rare. Very poor service quality, but AC was worling

Perfect for a stop over but not for a longer holiday. This hotel met the need for a night on our journey. Comfortable and secure with a good breakfast it ticked all the boxes. Don't eat supper at the restaurant though as not so great. The butler was excellent.

We slept over at Cranberry cottage on our way to Harrismith. Will definately stay here again. Excellent value for money, and staff super friendly. We also really enjoyed the breakfast which was included in the price.

A beautifull garden with a nice pool, but unfortunately it was raining. But the big spacious room, the friendly staff and the cosy restaurant still made it a good stay. The next morning we got a surprise: our dirty car was showroom clean.
