Comfortable and reasonably clean ( although the floors in the bathroom and bedroom could have been swept more thoroughly) Disappointed in the breakfast though - we were there for the Fish canoe marathon and as such had to leave before 7:30 each day . The hostess informed us that she only provided breakfast (which we had paid for) after 7:30 each morning. We had to help ourselves to toast before we left .We have stayed elsewhere in Cradock and the hostess was up before 6 to serve a proper breakfast.

A second stay says it was good to be back. Zelda and Cristel gave us a friendly welcome. We used the same room- refurbished during the year- and enjoyed the night spent in thge quaint town. Breakfast was hearty. I would have like a look into the history of the house with a good number of historical pieces. A good stay to be repeated.

The accommodation was okay, but did not open onto the garden.The minute pool was not working. The breakfast was greasy. We got much better value at our other stays.

We were very disappointed in Cradock House. The establishment bore no resemblance to the illustration or write up on the website. We understand from the present manager that the property has changed hands, but this happened three years ago and renovations are still incomplete! Also, the directions given to get to the property were so misleading that we had to telephone and the manageress came to fetch us from where we had arrived in Cradock.The first room we were showed to had no windows and when I said this was not acceptable she did show us another, much larger room in the main house.

Stopping in Cradock, South Africa was recommended by a fellow traveler. We took a chance and found Cradock House B&B that is the best value for money. It is an older house that apparently caters to corporate bookings. We could hear that there were at least two other guests, but never saw them; only stayed one night. The en suite room was huge and furnished with an eclectic blend of older furniture. There was a huge refrigerator and electric kettle for coffee/tea. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean and soap and shampoo were provided like a good hotel. There is even a small outside...
