The hosts Jonathan and Simon were excellent. Very helpful and bent over backwards to... More

This is the second year we have stayed at Cransley whilst holidaying in Bournemouth. Again we were not disappointed and owners Jonathan and Simon could not have done more to make our stay so comfortable and enjoyable. Breakfast for us consists of fruit, cereals, yoghurt etc, followed by our selection of cooked items, and is just delicious. As much tea,... 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!
