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.... More

A friendly, comfortable home atmosphere, everything we needed, lovely and relaxing. Beautiful room garden with air conditioner, heater, electric blanket, fridge, DSTV and a comfortable bed. This was our second stay for the Fish River Canoe marathon and we have booked again for next year.

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.

Felt at home and slept like a baby in comfortable room with aircon after a very stressful trip from Addo. Everything was clean and very modern. Breakfast was lovely and had a wonderful stay will definitely stay over there again.

They accommodated us in an outside room with a steel sheeting roof. It was ectremely hot during the day as well as evening. Although we knew there was no air conditioning, we... More

We had driven from Pretoria in the holiday traffic. (via the noticeably low Gariep Dam, Steynsberg and Hofmeyer) so we were looking for somewhere to relax. We could not have chosen a better spot. It is amazing how quiet Albert house is although the busy N10 is close by. The rooms we had were separate from the house and in... More

Beautiful garden setting, friendly hosts, great full English breakfasts, comfortable rooms with everything we needed. The off-street parking is a bonus too. We'll definitely be back to stay again next year.

We stayed at Albert House on our way to Underberg. The hosts were very accommodating regarding arrival & breakfast times, and even booked a table for us at the local steakhouse for dinner. The rooms are very nice, including TV with DSTV and mini-fridge. Bed was very comfortable and we had a great night's sleep. One of the few places... More

This was our first visit to Cradock. Having researched accommodation in Cradock we settled on this delightful Victorian House. Charles and Rika are well suited to this House. The room we had was very comfortable and the Breakfast was excellent. We only stayed one night but would envisage staying longer next time we're in the vicinity.

This was my return visit and I was not disappointed. Very comfortable and accommodating - I stayed in the cottage on the property and nothing was too much trouble for the host. I will definitely be back to this gracious old Eastern Cape home set in a beautiful spacious garden.

Thank Lombards
