About Crowned Crane

We look forward to welcoming you to the Crowned Crane, a 3 Star graded bed and breakfast establishment that is also accredited by the AA. At the Crowned Crane emphasis is on personal service, and the relaxed atmosphere carries through to the accommodation where guests make themselves at home in luxuriously appointed suites. The tranquility of the Crowned Crane is enhanced by the entrancing sea views, the sound of the surf, and the soft saline scent coming off the sea.

On entering the B&B Suites you are drawn to the full width glass frontage of the suite with magnificent seascape views from the private balcony. The luxurious suites sleep two comfortably, and one suite provides for an additional child under ten years of age.

The Self-catering Units have their own private entrance, and the enchanting thatched walkway leading to the units invites guests to an idyllic visit. The Self-catering Units are situated in a tranquil garden locale and have their own private verandas, charmingly overgrown with lush vegetation. The Self-catering Units sleep either two adults and two children under ten years of age, or three adults, and are superbly appointed ensuring that all guests' needs are fulfilled.

I would recommend this place over and over again. The room we had was much bigger than expected and everything was spotlessly clean. Everything is run well and even though they didn't have staff being Xmas day, they still made a plan to meet our needs. A very, very, good place!

Clean, spacious, and friendly!! We had a delayed flight and only arrived late, and still they kept contact with us, till we arrived. The best ever: we had proper reading lamps above our heads!!

This is a very pleasant place to stay at. The reception was professional and efficient. The room is very comfortable and we would stay there again in future. Well done Crowned Crane.
