Can't fault this wonderful hotel. Jonathan and Simon were perfect hosts who couldn't do enough for us and felt most welcome from the moment we checked in. The hotel is beautifully decorated and very relaxing with background music playing.The south facing bedroom we stayed in was very clean, light and airy, with an extremely comfortable bed. Although the hotel is... More

This is a wee gem of a hotel with wonderful hosts who go out of their way not only to provide a first class service but to give helpful advice on all manner of things including places to visit and eat. There is a great supply of (useful) brochures, first class wi fi connection and excellent TV reception. There is... More

We stayed 6 nights at the Cransley B&B and were extremely satisfied. Jonathon and Simon who run this venue are true professionals. The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. The location is close to the bus line and provides easy access to the city. Highly recommended!

The most wonderful B&B! Lovely house, furnished with style and love to details. The rooms are very nice and everything is clean. The hosts Jonathan and Simon look after their guests in a caring, perfect way. You can feel that their hearts are in it. Breakfast is lovely, either continental with fresh fruit, yoghurt, muesli etc or a cooked breakfast,... More

I recently stayed at Cransley for 3 nights during a short runaway to Bournemouth on my own. From the moment I stepped into the front door, I knew I had made the right choice for accommodation! From the lovely smile and friendly greeting, to the gentle classical music in the background, the generous furnishings and perfectly tended garden - nothing... More

Cransley offered everything we needed for a two night break. From entering the property it was clear that quality was of the utmost importance. These people care about your stay offering 5 star comfort and cleanliness and our choice of continental breakfast (cooked on offer too) didn't disappoint with a range of fresh fruits and preserves rarely served in larger...

Me and my girlfriend would definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend to anyone. Only ten minutes from town and the sea front. But it's a really quiet area with no loud clubs and pubs around. Really pleasant owners and reception. Brilliant little B+B.

Tom, Thanks for the kind words and taking the time to review the Cransley. I'm so pleased you and Sammi had a nice experience and also enjoyed the Casa Pepe for your steak. Looking forward to seeing you both again. More

I stayed here with my French family for the bank holiday weekend. I could not fault it. Clean, lovely decor, comfortable, well-equipped rooms, great breakfasts, friendly, helpful owners. I absolutely recommend it.

It was so much fun having you all with us. Five French and Helen as the token English lady. I promise to work on my French should you return. Very pleased that our optional breakfast worked to your advantage and saved you some money. Thank you so much - and other guests too, for giving us the high scores. We... More
