Indeed, a good hotel in a good and nice neighborhood. I use to look for places to stay in the South Kensington / Chelsea area when in London, but never checked this hotel. Wise move! Friendly staff, good cafes and restaurants around and when returning to your room...a free drink and a quite sleep. I'll be back!

We have stayed at the Cranley for many years now, and each time our stay is very pleasant and the quality of the hotel is very consistent. Even the smaller rooms have sufficient space, comfy beds, and reasonable bathrooms. The rooms with canopy beds are large, beautifully furnished and worth a special treat. The in-room breakfasts are always on time... More

Enjoyed a weekend break in this lovely hotel just off Old Brompton Road. Great access to cafes, bars and a wide range of eating places. Tube a 5 minute walk, 20 minutes from the City. Pleasant welcome, lovely room with a bed big enough to have its own postcode but would be improved by tea and coffee making facility. Didn't... More

This hotel exceeded our expectations. It is beautiful with a very warm welcome. Excellent breakfast but do not serve dinners although plenty of excellent restaurants close by in Old Brompton Road. Lovely bedroom with a very large comfortable bed.

Upsides: - Excellent location in South Kensington - Pretty interiors and well maintained - Staff are friendly and helpful Downsides: - Rooms are a bit small for couples - The breakfast that's included is literally just toast and coffee (I've learned that this is the definition of a 'Continental Breakfast' so I guess must be pretty standard) Suggestions: - Stay...

This small boutique hotel offers to you the perfect combination of price,service and location. It feels like you are at home when the housemaid bring to you a breakfast with delicious freshly baked croissants and coffee. Just 5 minutes from underground and 15 minutes walk from the famous Harrods. Stay with pleasure.

Took my wife for a night at the theatre in London and wanted to stay in a small residential hotel and the Cranley looked the ideal place. I originally booked through secret escapes, but travel zoo had a much better deal so when I phoned the Cranley they upgraded to the same deal with no questions asked. The hotel is... More

We stayed at the end of August on a wowcher deal. We received a very warm welcome, and the reception staff on duty could not have been more helpful or friendly. We had room 106 which felt luxurious and had a nice view onto the street. The others in the party had room 502 which was on the lower ground... More
