My husband wanted to go on a solo cycling excursion. After some time spent searching the net, Cranford Country Lodge offered the best by far, in terms of location and comfort. So I booked him in for two nights whilst he explored Karkloof by day. Comfort, food, atmosphere, and top service was norm for this place. Well it is KZN's...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Cranford for three nights to have a break from the hustle and bustle. It was the best place we have stayed yet. Absolutely nothing is at fault. The staff are so friendly, breakfast delicious and the rooms very neat, tidy, clean and homely. I would recommend this place to anyone in a heartbeat.

We had our wedding at Cranford on Dec 31, 2016. Although we live in Somerset West (Western Cape), we have lived in KZN, the Eastern Cape, and Gauteng previously and so for us the location was central. My family is also all from KZN so the location allowed all of them to join in. We viewed two KZN venues about...

We stayed at Cranford for two nights in a self catering cottage - The Dairy. The white roomy cottage was neatly decorated and had a fire place and kitchenette and free wifi. The staff prepared the room while we were away, so when we arrived after dark the lights were already on and everything in its place. The property was...

Stayed here for a wedding a few weeks back. The venue is absolutely beautiful and was managed very well but the rooms were a little disappointing. They were comfortable but there were a few small details missing that could really make them so much better, like having full-length mirrors in the rooms. It's a wedding venue so most guests staying...

A quick stop off to have a look around at Cranford Country Lodge. All very old world charm with lots of collectables over the years displayed in their cosy lounges. Sat next to a lovely warm fire as it was rather chilly and misty rain outside.
