I had a short stop in London and chose The Cranley Hotel because it was in South Kensington, close to the tube and the price. The Cranley is not a huge hotel with its 39 rooms - but meets all the requirements to be a charming little boutique hotel. I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist who quickly got... More

This boutique hotel in the heart of Kensington is very comfortable. The rooms are decorated in a style befitting the original houses and fitted with genuine antique furniture. The beds are extremely comfortable and the 4 poster room we had was very spacious. The staff are so friendly and respectful and cannot do enough for you. There is no tea... More

A well placed, luxury hotel which delivered on service and amenities. Staff - polite, attentive & courteous. The room was small but well appointed and the complimentary canapes and champagne were a nice touch. My 2 negative comments would be: - the included breakfast was sparse which was disappointing - the hotel decor is in desperate need of a revamp... More

We stayed at The Cranley for 3 days of our 7-day trip to London, and I wish we had stayed at The Cranley the whole stay. Nothing else quite compared after it. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly staff and led to our room. We stayed in a beautiful, sunny four-poster room (#107, highly recommend) that was... More

We like to stay at the Cranley Hotel when visiting London. The location is excellent. Within walking distance of Kensington Gardens, High St Ken and the restaurants of South Ken. The rooms are small but very comfortable. The check in staff are friendly and efficient and the lounge is a nice place to enjoy tea or an evening cocktail. The... More

One night stay was wonderful. Room was very small but big window and high ceilings made it feel fine. No coffee/tea in room but lots of booze! Great location. Comfy bed with premium bed linen. Would stay again.

This hotel is well situated for visitors to the South Kensington museums and the Royal Albert Hall. It is less than 10 minutes walk from Gloucester Road tube station. The Hotel is not large, and has bedrooms on a number of floors, but does not have a dining room or restaurant. A simple breakfast is provided, juice, coffee/tea and bread/croissant... More

Had a one night stay, wish it had of been longer! Great location, walking distance to tube stations, great restaurants and pubs, Albert&Victoria museum, Hyde Park. Having read some of the negative reviews, I was pleasantly surprised. Check-in was friendly and efficient, the lobby/lounge area was gorgeous. The building is old, so of course there will be wear and tear... More
