Accommodation was very comfortable, clean and well-maintained; the whole house is beautifully furnished. Breakfast is nicely cooked (make your selections the night before). It was an easy walk down to the beach, and... More

We enjoyed a very warm welcome from our delightful host Jonathan who went out of his way to help us regarding places to visit, places to eat, even printing off maps for us. Breakfast was delicious, lovingly cooked by Simon and... More

The Cransley is situated just outside the centre of Bournemouth, within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, etc. The hotel is small but immaculately kept, and includes a lounge for residents' use and a garden. Our room was on the small side but as it was effectively only a base for sleeping in we weren't bothered at all. It was... More
