I had a one night stay and my sleep was perfect! Comfortable and very quiet room, with a beautiful view. Breakfast wasn't superb but enough to starting my day. Surely I'll be back, the owners were very nice and helpfull

Great B&B with really good service. I forgot a top in the room which was promptly posted back to me. Our superior room was huge and clean. Yes, the decor is a bit dated but in relation to the price this is more than acceptable. Good working free wifi too, which to me is more important than the room decor.... More

I am surprised that other reviewers rate Cranston House so highly. Let me stress that there is nothing particularly wrong with it. It is just that I don't see anything that lifts it above a pretty ordinary "average". The furnishings and bedding is a long way short of excellent. The pillows in particular are not good quality. The breakfast is... More

Hello Tim. Thank you for taking the trouble to write a review, I have checked the state of the pillows in the bedrooms and replaced those that are becoming substandard. You chose the herrings with poached eggs for your breakfast. I have felt of late that the quality of the herrings has not been go enough so I have now... More

Having experienced difficulties with the online booking system for Cranston House we finally booked for the 9th April 2014 paid mistakenly by debit card. When we came to print out the confirmation email on the 8th April to our horror we found it had recorded the booking for the 4th April. This was the day we made the booking not... More

This was my second visit while my husband had treatment at Queen Victoria hospital. At such a stressful time for me, Brian and Aileen were lovely. On both occasions my room was cosy, and by that don't misread it for small, the rooms are spacious, bright, warm and welcoming with everything I needed and spotlessly clean situated in a lovely...

I have just booked our 2014 stopover. Our 2013 stay was just as good as in previous years, for which I have already given detailed reviews praising the quiet situation with good off-road parking, clean well-appointed rooms, delicious breakfasts and friendly efficient service.

We stayed just one night in Cranston, but it was faultless. Huge room, clean and with excellent facilities. We looked at a few places to stay in the area and this was recommended by locals, and it lived up to expectations. Also the slightly unusual for a hotel interior, in our room, gave a personal touch to the place which... More

We needed a base in East Grinstead so we could visit our disabled daughter over the Christmas / New Year period. The room was very clean and tidy with tea and coffee facilities provided. The bathroom was clean with modern fittings, the only down side was that the shower worked off the bath taps and not being thermostatically controlled was... More

Hello Peter, Thank you for your positive comments. The cleaning staff will appreciate your observations about the cleanliness of your room.
