We spent two nights with Charles and Rika. The B and B was very nice. Built during the 1850's, the rooms are comfortable and have all the amenities you need (AC included which was huge when we were there). The garden area is beautiful, and was a wonderful place to spend a couple of hours reading on a warm afternoon....

Good overnight stop with Charles and his wife making our stay a pleasurable one . Centrally positioned on a quiet back street .Nice room with direct access to garden which had an abundance of fruit trees. Hearty breakfast .

First question I was asked 'Aren't we late?' That says a lot about the attitude of the owner. There's no need to talk down to a client. I found that question very condescending. He should make it very clear that there's a cutoff arrival time OR ask for an tentetive arrival time.

When booking we were taken by the pictures and setting, but when checking in we were roomed in a out building some distance from the beautiful house and dining room, a disappointment. it rained heavily so whilst this was a blessing for the town it limited the outdoor garden experience (potential braai). So, for dinner it was fast food, or...

We were welcomed by Charles after a very long trip. I have never in all my travels met such a helpful host who was willing to go the extra mile for his guests. We were both tired and hungry, Charles made a booking for dinner at one of the local establishments and in the morning organised an appointment for my...

What a super experience indeed. Charles and the Team were great and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The garden is stunning and a great spot just to chill. The rooms were clean and neat with very comfortable beds. Will definitely visit there again if I'm in the area.

We were welcomed by Charles who was an excellent host. The room was comfortable with everything we needed ( we were able to catch up on the sevens rugby). Breakfast served in the dining room full of old world charm. A lovely quiet retreat on our journey.

Albert House is such a great place to stay while exploring Cradock or Mountain Zebra NP. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have all the basics, as well as access to a beautiful garden and backyard. It’s a quiet place that is two blocks from town and just a block from N2 and a quick exit to Mountain Zebra....

We were welcome by a very friendly man, Charles who showed us to our room. It was nice and comfortable and we had a great nights sleep. The room has all you need to overnight including a small fridge, WiFi, air-conditioner and TV. The room was warm even though it was a cold night.
